Technical Advisor, Les Mills International
Bryce is literally the brains behind the brawn, leading ground-breaking research and collaborating with internationally-renowned research partners to unearth the latest and most effective fitness techniques.
Drawing from this research and his time in the fitness lab, Bryce ensures that every LES MILLS™ program is safe, effective and grounded in science.
Conducting research such as the ‘Get Fit Together’ trial and studies into the LES MILLS GRIT™ program, Bryce has illustrated how Les Mills’ programs dramatically decrease fat percentages, lower dangerous cholesterol and triglyceride levels, and contribute to more effective fitness routines. The research not only provides important insights into methods of fitness training, it also offers invaluable evidence and solutions to address growing global government concerns over rising obesity levels.
Bryce became a certified Physical Therapist in 1986 and completed his Advanced Diploma in Manipulative Therapy in 1990. He went on to complete a Masters in Philosophy at Auckland University of Technology where he serves as a Research Associate and lectured part-time for eight years. In 1990, Bryce opened his private physical therapy practice at Les Mills World of Fitness in Auckland, the original Les Mills gym established in 1968 by Les Mills Senior.
He has co-developed research programs on core conditioning, high-intensity interval training and exercise strategies for sedentary individuals, and he has co-authored reports in a variety of fitness and scientific publications.
