Become an Instructor


We’re living in life-changing times, so why not do something life-changing and become part of the 140,000-strong Les Mills Instructor crew? With online training now available, nothing is holding you back.

It’s been described by many as a transformational journey of self-discovery. A two-day LES MILLS™ instructor training course that will change your life – and help you change the lives of others. And now, for the first time ever, you can experience this powerful training course online. 

Opt-in for this new challenge and you can deepen your fitness mastery from the comfort of your own home. As you work online with an expert trainer, you'll delve deep into your favorite LES MILLS program, discover expert tips for perfect technique and find out secrets to maximize your performance and results. You’ll learn how to effectively motivate and inspire others, plus pick up invaluable skills that will help you feel more confident in all aspects of life. 

The training has evolved over 40 years to become the gold standard in fitness industry training, blending the best of instructor education, sports coaching, actor training, and personal development.  

While many pursue this training so they can enjoy the rewards that come from teaching their own group fitness classes, the training is not solely for would-be instructors. It is great personal development for any fitness enthusiast. 

Nathalie Cary is a regular gym-goer who decided to do the training as she wanted to learn as much as she could about one of her favorite workouts, BODYCOMBAT™. “It wasn’t easy, but it’s an experience I’ll never forget,” she says. “It took me out of my comfort zone mentally and physically and as a result, I have so much more confidence than I had before. Completing the course gave me a huge amount of pride and I now have an amazing bond with those who did the training with me.”  

Feedback from some of the first to experience the new online version of the training has been hugely positive. “The opportunity to do it in the comfort of my own home during lockdown was absolutely perfect for me, plus it gave me something to concentrate on in my spare time,” says UK-based Lisa Kelly. 

Others said that working in a safe and familiar space helped them focus on absorbing the content of the module. “As a massive introvert, the idea of live training is very intimidating, so I knew doing this from the comfort of my own home would be perfect,” says Fiona McKay. "The benefit of this being I was more engaged in the learning and free to work at my own pace with the education supplied before and during the training." Another UK Instructor agrees: "It was very relaxing 'working from home' and I was, therefore, able to concentrate well, assimilating the information easily in a no-pressure environment."

LES MILLS Trainer Adam Bramski says that even though the training happens online, there is still so much room to connect. “It actually allows people to be themselves more because they are in their own comfort zone.” 

The course makes use of Zoom breakout rooms so that instructors can interact during the sessions and a dedicated Facebook group helps them connect pre and post-training. This means throughout the journey participants can engage with each other, check-in, and help each other out, something that US-based Jenni Sommer loved. “Even though my classmates and I never actually met in person, thanks to social media we have formed a bond and remain connected in our journey, cheering one another on!”
