What now?

The majority of Les Mills instructors were participants that simply loved doing the classes at their local club. Become a Les Mills instructor in 3 easy steps:

Step One:

Get endorsement from your club. Your first step prior to singing up to Les Mills instructor training is to make sure you have somewhere to practice post training in a real life situation. The easiest way to do this is to chat with the club manager or group fitness manager at the facility you are currently a member (or the facility you wish to teach at). You could either ask your favourite instructor who that is, or chat to reception to put you in touch. Once you get hold of the manager, talk to them about your desire to become an instructor, if they have a need for more instructors in the program you are interested in and if so whether they will “endorse” you. An endorsement is simply a verbal agreement that the club will allow you to shadow/team-teach with an experienced instructor post training. This is not an agreement of employment, simply a starting point for you to practice.

Step Two:

Book in to training. Book into an Initial Training Module in your chosen program and once your place is confirmed we will send you a link to download your training resources. The cut-off date for initial training registration is 2-weeks prior to the training date.On a Pass as a Trainee outcome you are eligible to team-teach and prepare for your final step: Certification.

Step Three:

Get certified. Once you have been team-teaching for a minimum of 3-months, get your final sign-off by certifying at AIM 1 meaning you are qualified to teach solo.


New in 2018
