BORN TO MOVE

Inspiring young people to fall in love with physical activity

CREATING A HEALTHY FUTURE

Helping children shape positive physical habits is our passion.

We want to feed young people’s natural appetite for action, movement and play – and let them enjoy the energy, confidence, good health and increased ability that goes with it. BORN TO MOVE can make this happen.

WHAT IS BORN TO MOVE?

Les Mills’ BORN TO MOVE classes take the effort out of activity by making it fun.

Combining a motivating and scientifically proven mix of age-appropriate movement with music, these classes captivate toddlers through to teens – and fuel a life-long love of physical activity along the way.

WHY CHILDREN LOVE IT

BORN TO MOVE classes are jam-packed with smiles, laughter, singing and fun. Each class teaches age-appropriate motor skills that improve agility, balance, coordination, endurance, flexibility and speed. Children thrive on the enjoyment and sense of belonging, making new friends and developing social skills. Most importantly, they discover the joy of movement and set up healthy habits for the future.

WHY IT’S IMPORTANT TO GET YOUNG PEOPLE MOVING

“The early years of life are a critical window to form positive habits. That’s why we’ve developed BORN TO MOVE. We want to instil a love of being active in children so they can grow into active, healthy and happy adults.”

Dr. Jackie Mills MD, Les Mills Chief Creative Officer.

WHY BORN TO MOVE WORKS

THE FIVE PILLARS OF CHILD DEVELOPMENT
  • FUN

    FUN

    Fun is the number one priority – from the music and moves, to the style of teaching, and the group environment itself. After all, everything is more fun with friends!

  • BELONGING

    BELONGING

    Many sports and activities for young people are competitive and non-inclusive which may discourage participation. BORN TO MOVE fitness teachers are trained to create an environment where all participants gain a sense of achievement and feel welcome and included.

  • THE RIGHT FIT

    THE RIGHT FIT

    Co-created with young people, classes use music they love, moves that they can easily master, and words and explanations that make sense to them. They also deliver core building block skills that have been expertly approved to align with their stage of development.

  • ACHIEVEMENT

    ACHIEVEMENT

    Classes are designed to leave participants with a sense of collective completion; their confidence grows as they experience the thrill of mastering new skills in an uplifting environment, supported by encouraging teachers.

  • SAFETY AND SECURITY

    SAFETY AND SECURITY

    All the moves are pre-tested to ensure they ‘push’ young people to experience the full extent of their ability, while being safe for their age group.
