Les Mills unleashes the power of its digital platforms free of charge for home workouts to support gym operators and schools

Big challenges call for bold solutions, so we’re opening up LMOD to support our club partners and schools in keeping the world moving
– Clive Ormerod, CEO, Les Mills

Les Mills International (LMI) has unveiled a raft of free digital workout solutions to support health clubs and schools during the coronavirus pandemic. 

As thousands of gyms and schools across the world are being forced to close, the group fitness giant is taking unprecedented steps to help adults and children worldwide stay active in their homes. 

Les Mills is providing clubs, instructors and schools with access to its workouts through the Les Mills On Demand (LMOD) digital fitness platform, so they can support families and paying gym members with workout options to stay healthy and active. 

“Big challenges call for bold solutions," says CEO Clive Ormerod, "So we’re opening up LMOD to support our club partners and schools in keeping the world moving. 

“We all know exercise is the cornerstone of a healthy immune system, so the fitness industry has a major role to play in helping to keep people fighting fit in the face of coronavirus," he said.

“With health now a top-tier priority for people of all ages, our sector needs to stand shoulder-to-shoulder to work through the challenges ahead and emerge as a stronger, more vital cog in society than ever before."

LMOD enables users to stream, cast or download over 800 workouts at home or on the go. The platform features the most popular Les Mills programmes, presented by some of the world’s best instructors and supported by expert training guides. 

Ormerod added that the LMOD solutions will support the US, UK, Canada, Spain, and other parts of Europe and North America where the platform is available.

The company is also accelerating efforts to offer LMOD in Germany and France, while additional digital workout solutions have been created to support clubs and schools in the rest of the world. 

Les Mills partners are being supported to retain paying members through the offer of a free 60-day trial of LMOD to keep them active and engaged if they can’t make it to the club.

For more information, click here and follow the COVID-19 options to access support from your local Les Mills team. 

Schools and families can gain unlimited access to a collection of workouts catering for kids aged 4-16 here.
