We’re brave, motivated and always seeking new opportunities.And along the way, we ensure everything we do is world-class.The enthusiasm we have for life-changing fitness dates back to the 1960swhen four-time Olympic athlete Les Mills and wife Colleen opened their firstgym in Auckland, New Zealand. Their passionate belief in the benefits ofexercise was shared by their son Phillip, who was also a top athlete. COLLEEN AND LES MILLS, 1968 LES AND PHILLIP MILLSAfter attending a scholarship at UCLA, Phillip returned home with a wholenew perspective on the fitness industry. He instinctively recognized that thecombination of motivating music, inspiring choreography and energizinginstructors that he’d witnessed could bring an exciting new dimension tothe exercise experience and he began developing variations on that theme.His first creation was an early version of the weights-to-music program thatwould become BODYPUMP™, and The Original Barbell Class™ caught onso quickly, Phillip dispatched five of his most motivating instructors to takeit further afield. Their infectious enthusiasm combined with the program’sspectacular results soon opened doors around the planet.Today Les Mills is the global leader in Group Fitness. Members of theLes Mills tribe can be found in almost every corner of the world – sharingtheir enthusiasm and passion to create life-changing fitness experiencesand a fitter planet.
