LES MILLS LIVE is a global group fitness tour, celebrating the latest fitness trends and cutting-edge music. It's an opportunity to work out with the best Instructors in the world, in a pumping party atmosphere alongside thousands of other fitness fans. There is truly nothing like it!

What is IDEA® World?

IDEA World Fitness & Nutrition Expo is an annual fitness convention attended by over 14,000 people. Held across four days, this event offers workshops, education, networking and motivation - it's the Super Bowl of fitness! LES MILLS LIVE is one of the special feature events at IDEA World 2019.

Do I have to attend IDEA World to attend LES MILLS LIVE, or vice versa?

You can choose to attend LES MILLS LIVE only, IDEA World only, or purchase a bundled registration to attend both events.

What do I need to bring?

Once onsite, you'll want to make sure you have your registration confirmation, picture ID, water (bring a bottle to refill it at water stations), snacks, a sweatshirt (sometimes the rooms get a little cool, especially after some exercise) and a yoga mat (for BODYFLOW). You may also like to bring a change of clothes and a sweat towel.

How fit do I need to be?

Les Mills workouts are designed for all ages, abilities and fitness levels. Every workout includes options, so you can do as much or as little as you want…the atmosphere is electric and will keep you motivated!

I've never done group fitness or Les Mills before, is that ok?

Of course! Our workouts are designed to be inclusive and motivating and the Presenters will coach you through each class and provide options to suit everyone.

I'm coming alone, is that ok?

At LES MILLS LIVE, you'll be surrounded by a community of like-minded fitness enthusiasts, so you won't feel alone for long! You can also check out our Facebook event page and our LES MILLS On Demand Squad group to connect with others.

How should I prepare for Les Mills Live?

If you’ve never tried a Les Mills workout, find a class at a gym near you or try one of the recommended schedules on our LES MILLS On Demand platform to get a taste of the different workouts and build your own program!

Will there be showers?

Unfortunately, other than your hotel room, there are no shower facilities available onsite. Restroom facilities throughout the venue can be used for changing clothes if needed. Our Presenter team recommends bringing deodorant, wet wipes, sweat towels and a change of clothes.

Is there somewhere to store my belongings?

There will be a bag drop available at the Hilton Anaheim, but no lockers. Items will be left at your own risk, so please don't bring anything valuable. Large bags and backpacks won't be allowed in the workout rooms, so we recommend bringing a fanny pack large enough to hold your phone & wallet.

Will there be a lost & found?

Any found items will be held for pickup at the LES MILLS LIVE Information Desk next to the California Ballroom in the Hilton Anaheim.

How old do I have to be to attend LES MILLS LIVE?

While our workouts are designed for everyone, the IDEA World Convention requires attendees to be at least 18 years of age.

Do I receive Continuing Education Credits (CECs) for attending LES MILLS LIVE?

Yes! You will be emailed a document after the event with all the CEC information.


How do I purchase a ticket?

Tickets for LES MILLS LIVE, IDEA World, or both can be purchased through the IDEA World website. Click here to register.

What does my ticket include?

Your ticket to LES MILLS LIVE gives you access to five (5) class sessions of your choice, the IDEA World Mega Group Fitness Bash, plus a complimentary IDEA World Fitness & Nutrition Expo Hall Pass.

How do I select a specific class?

After you have registered for LES MILLS LIVE 2019, you will be granted access to select your class sessions through an online portal. Simply click the box next to the sessions you prefer, up to a total of five (5). If you are undecided about the sessions you want at the time of purchase, you can return to the session selection portal at any time to choose or change classes. Sessions are first-come, first-served and based on space availability.

What do I do if the class is full?

If a class is full, you can check with the LES MILLS LIVE Attendee Registration Desk inside Hall D at the Anaheim Convention Center upon arrival to see if any space has opened up. We recommend you chose another session in place of your preferred selection as a safeguard.

Can I purchase my ticket on a payment plan?

Like many concerts or sporting events, payment plans are not available.

I can no longer attend, what do I do with my ticket?

We are unable to offer refunds, but LES MILLS LIVE tickets can be transferred to another individual. To transfer your ticket, please contact IDEA's Inspired Service Team toll-free at 800-999-4332 x7 (available Monday through Friday from 7am-5pm PDT). For those outside the U.S. and Canada, please call 858-535-8979 x7. LES MILLS LIVE tickets cannot be transferred to another LES MILLS event, training or quarterly.

I didn't receive a confirmation email, who can I talk to?

Please contact IDEA's Inspired Service Team toll-free at 800-999-4332 x7 (available Monday through Friday from 7am-5pm PDT). For those outside the U.S. and Canada, please call 858-535-8979 x7.

Do I need to print out my ticket to enter?

Please bring your printed registration confirmation with you to the LES MILLS LIVE Attendee Registration Desk (inside Hall D at the Anaheim Convention Center). Your registration confirmation alone will not give you access inside the session rooms. Once you have checked in at Attendee Registration, you will receive your name badge and tickets for each session you signed up for. The session tickets, along with your name badge, will give you admittance into the sessions.

Can I go to a session I am not registered for?

Unfortunately, if you are not registered for a session you will not be granted access. If you want to change your schedule, please do so through the online session selection portal prior to the event. If you would like to change sessions onsite, please visit the LES MILLS LIVE Attendee Registration Desk inside Hall D at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Can I change my sessions?

You can update your selected class sessions anytime through the online session selection portal based on space availability. Sessions are first-come, first-served. While onsite, you can check at the LES MILLS LIVE Attendee Registration Desk to see if space is available.

Can I buy tickets for others (not myself)?

Yes, but each registration and session schedule need to have its own unique email address associated with it, so you may only purchase one (1) ticket at a time.


Who are the LES MILLS LIVE Presenters on stage?

The people on stage are a mix of our Program Directors (the New Zealand team who create the workouts), Ambassadors (international guest presenters) and the Les Mills US Presenter team. All are world class Instructors and coaches who will inspire and motivate you throughout the day!

What Program Directors and Ambassadors are attending?

Diana Archer-Mills, Dan Cohen, Gandalf Archer-Mills, Kylie Gates, Lisa Osborne, Mark Nu’u and Rachael Newsham will be presenting at LES MILLS LIVE. We know that life happens and sometimes Program Directors and Ambassadors are suddenly unable to attend the event, so this lineup is subject to change.

Will I be able to get a photo with the Program Directors, Ambassadors or Presenters?

Of course! Closer to the event date, we’ll release a schedule of ‘Meet & Greet’ and photo opportunities.
