TRIP Mix 1.0 out now
Check out THE TRIP Mix 1.0 – a mash-up of older tracks in response to the many requests over the past year. The tracks have been carefully selected from TRIP releases 7, 8 and 9 to achieve a cohesive experience with the animation, music and workout structure. The whole release is driven by an excellent playlist that builds the intensity and holds it, with longer endurance blocks mixed with short intense bursts – and the feedback has been fantastic from those participants who have ridden it.

Releases App update
August 14 saw a cool new feature added to the music player of the Les Mills Releases App (iOS users only at this stage – Android your time will come very soon!). It’s called “Advanced Playback” and it allows you to add customizable time breaks between each music track – so you can now use your Releases App when teaching live classes! You can also pause playback completely after a track, allowing you as much time as you need to set up your class and equipment for the next track. Keep an eye out for new videos in the Releases App explaining how to use these new features.

Stay up to date with the latest news you can use in the Releases App, including:
- A new study showing knee pushups are a great alternative for those struggling with the toe version
