Pukekohe gym strikes century

Franklin County News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

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.
