The Les Mills Connection
Les Mills was a New Zealand athlete who competed in the shotput and discus, achieving gold, silver and bronze medals at the commonwealth games in 1966 and 1970. Les and his wife opened a gym and by the 1980s group fitness was born through Jazzercize classes.
At this point Les’ son, Phillip Mills took over and together with other family members has built the business to the point where Les Mills in Victoria St is like a Mecca to thousands of instructors around the world. The Les Mills brand of classes is now found in nearly 100 countries around the world with millions of people enjoying the experience of a Les Mills workout out every day.
