Les Mills Virtual Classes – On The Way

USN Bolton Arena are delighted to announce that plans have been finalised to introduce Les Mills Virtual classes into our timetable.

In today’s ‘on the go’ economy, it’s down to us to provide customers with a choice of what they want and when they want it. Virtual helps to create this by increasing flexibility for our members, whilst also widening the options available. It allows members to do a workout almost whenever it suits them.

We’ll be doubling our class timetable with the introduction of virtual BodyCombat, BodyPump, BodyBalance, CXWorx, SH’Bam and RPM. Not only are we offering a number of extra classes, we’re implementing new classes to keep up with the rapidly changing health & fitness industry.

New classes are added every 3 months, ensuring they are fresh and the music is current. There is always a diverse range of categories with more programs being added to the catalogue over time.

Will the Les Mills virtual replace live instructors? 

No way. Nothing beats the energy of a live Les Mills workout experience and nothing ever will. A live workout is where Instructors and exercisers can experience a very real connection, building relationships that lead to exercise adherence for participants and membership retention for clubs. Live workouts will always be the premium experience with the latest music and choreography. Virtual workouts are a great complement to live workouts, but they are never going to replace the life-changing fitness experiences that a real Instructor can.

Want to see virtual in action? Click here.

Want to find out more? Speak to a member of our gym team and they’ll be able to provide you with further information regarding our new classes. Alternatively, Our memberships team are also available on 01204 488104 to answer any of your questions.

Look out for our new timetable, with the new virtual additions to start in October.
