We know that the ability to livestream regular Les Mills releases to club members has been top of mind, so we have been working on a solution that covers our music licensing requirements to expand livestreaming capabilities. You will now be able to livestream regular releases through your club. You may need to use cover music in these livestreams, so please make sure your club has checked with your local music society before starting.
As with live classes, livestreaming of regular releases must be done via a licensed club, and an additional livestream music license is required by the club.
If you are currently employed by a club, please get in touch with your club to discuss this. The music licensing your club secures will determine if you can stream releases with original artists or covers. Please know, you will now be able to download cover music for select programs at no additional cost starting with the Q1/2020 instructor releases. There will be more details to come on back releases. Initially, cover music will only be available for BODYFLOW®, BODYPUMP™, BODYCOMBAT™, BODYATTACK™, LES MILLS CORE™, RPM™, SH’BAM™ and BODYSTEP™. Cover music for LES MILLS GRIT™ will be available starting with the Q1/2021 release.
If you are not currently employed by a club, we understand that you may not have the opportunity to teach livestreamed classes, so we have re-loaded the royalty-free Livestream Workouts on YouTube and provided some fresh content on this channel. The YouTube playlist was created as a short-term solution, and once clubs re-open instructors will be required to teach all live and livestreamed classes through a licensed club. Please ensure you visit our FAQ page for all details on livestreaming using these workouts.
Looking for a licensed facility? Update your preferences in the Instructor Portal to indicate you are available to teach.
To help you and your club livestream successfully, we have created a livestream guide that covers music licensing requirements, key business rules and setup recommendations. Your club is able to access this from their local Les Mills market contact.
Livestreaming is a great way to connect with your club members and we are excited to have a solution for you to deliver Les Mills workouts with your current releases.
