MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO TEACH

It is great to see clubs re-opening and members coming back through the doors. However, we appreciate that social distancing restrictions are making things harder.

Therefore, to support and provide you with more opportunities to teach, we have created 3 short term partnership options for clubs to take advantage of.

These offers are only available for a limited time and through a partnered UK/Ireland facility, therefore to take advantage of any of these partnership options, contact us at lmuk.clubs@lesmills.com and we'll be in touch.

ADDITIONAL VENUE

With social distancing in place you may be finding it hard to run classes at full capacity. For 3 months, clubs can hold their current Les Mills programmes at an additional community venue (e.g. a community hall or school) in order to offer larger classes and broaden their timetable..

Details:

  • Clubs running this option need to currently have these programmes in their main facility
  • The additional venue should feature as an extension of the club’s timetable

Instructors, you know your members and community better than anyone. This is a great opportunity for you to work with your club to find the best venues to expand capacity and offer more classes to members.

ADDITIONAL PROGRAMME

Have you wanted to trial an additional Les Mills programme in your gym before? Now clubs can launch one additional programme to their partnership, at no additional cost, for 6 months.

Details:

  • Additional programme not currently within a partnership package
  • Classes can be live or live stream

Instructors, if there’s a certification you have sitting on the shelf, now is a great time to dust it off and offer your club the ability to experience one of your favourite programmes.

NEW FACILITY

Do you know of any facilities that don’t currently have a Les Mills partnership in place? New clubs or facilities can now run one Les Mills programme, at no cost, for 6 months.

Details:

  • Classes can be live or live stream
  • No previous partnership at this facility within the last 6 months
  • New clubs and facilities will need to sign an agreement for this temporary partnership

Instructors this is a great way to get more opportunities to teach and bring your magic to even more members!

For all partnership options, you must be a certified, active Instructor to teach these classes and clubs must arrange all relevant public performance/communications licenses, insurance, and health & safety procedures.

To take advantage of any of these partnership options, contact us at lmuk.clubs@lesmills.com and we'll be in touch.
