- What is Gen-Fit Training?
Gen-Fit Training is an innovative group fitness solution that will take your club to the next level. With a stack of new programs to meet current fitness trends, clubs can run these programs for short periods of time to bring excitement to the timetable, attract new demographics and drive growth through group fitness.
- How are Gen-Fit Training programs different to other LES MILLS programs?
Gen-Fit Training is scientifically crafted and tested to meet the demand of younger generations. The progressive ‘challenge-style’ programs are designed to be run for short durations at different moments throughout the year to keep the timetable exciting.
Unlike other programs which can take time to build up a library of workouts and that have new releases produced every quarter, Gen-Fit Training will supply instructors with a box set complete with a full suite of releases.
- How will they help me attract younger audiences into class?
Gen-Fit Training is a whole new style of working out. They offer highly motivating fitness experiences that are designed to appeal to younger audiences through results, strength, and the latest music trends. Having new or limited-time programming on your timetable gives you and your gym new ways to draw existing members into the Group Fitness room.
- Why are we launching Gen-Fit Training programs this way?
We know how hard the last two years have been for clubs. The creation of Gen-Fit Training is our way of helping you to remain relevant in the face of tough competition and to tap into the Gen Z and Millennials (the under 40s) make up 80% of the modern fitness market.
- What support do I get from LES MILLS?
Each program in the Gen-Fit Training library will be unique and comes with everything you need to run the program. You can purchase and run individual Gen-Fit Training programs at your facility and there are no ongoing commitments. Because each program speaks to a specific innovation, the makeup, materials, and required equipment for each program will be different.
We also want to make your instructor recruitment easy, so our Gen-Fit Training certifications have a simple and flexible process. It will take instructors roughly half a day depending on the pre-requisites of each Gen-Fit Training program, meaning they can be coaching within a week!
- How much will it cost?
- How should the Gen-Fit Training programs be scheduled onto my timetable?
The programs are designed to be run for short durations on the timetable (e.g. 3 months at a time) and re-introduced at different points throughout the year – this keeps the concept fresh and helps to engage members in group fitness. They can also be run as a 12-week challenge, which we know younger members love!
- How long can I license each Gen-Fit Training program?
Gen-Fit programs are designed to be put on your schedule as a limited-time offering to generate both excitement and commitment for classes at your club. We’ll have more specific timelines regarding how long we’ll sell each program closer to launch.
- Will all Gen-Fit Training programs have the same progressive style and the same number of releases?
Not necessarily. As each program speaks to a specific innovation or workout trend, each will follow a format that makes the most sense. This also means that the number of releases associated with each program will be different.
- What equipment will be required for Gen-Fit Training programs?
We want it to be straightforward to launch a Gen-Fit program, so we are focusing on developing workouts that feature group fitness equipment already found in your facility, plus equipment-free options.
- Does this mean we will eventually have over 30 Les Mills programs? How will I choose which ones to run?
We currently have a broad offering to help you cater to all your member needs. Gen-Fit Training programs can be used as a driver to re-energize the timetable and your facility, to attract and engage new and existing members. Programs can be used as a driver to re-energize a space in your club or spot on your timetable or an acquisition or retention tool.
