Pukekohe gym strikes century
Counties Fitness celebrated the 100th release of its most popular Les Mills fitness programme recently.
The Pukekohe gym offered 100 lucky winners the opportunity to join the club for the release of its 100th Les Mills BodyPump class.
It was honoured when Leslie Mills, the man who gave his name to the world’s largest fitness class provider, made an appearance to observe the milestone.
Group fitness manager, Tracey Wilson said: ‘‘A former mayor of Auckland and Olympic athlete, it was with great pride that we accepted his praise for quality of both the club and instructors.’’
Les Mills group programs have grown from an idea, into a fitness empire - every week, 5.5 million gym-goers attend Les Mills classes worldwide.
The BodyPump classes, which were first established in 1991, consist of a technique that exhausts muscles using light weights, while simultaneously performing high repetition.
During any one class, attendees can expect to do anywhere between 800 to 1000 reps - four times the amount any one person will complete by themselves.
Counties Fitness is one of the largest fitness clubs in New Zealand - each week more than 2000 people attend the club’s group fitness classes.
