How fit do I need to be to use LES MILLS On Demand?
One of the best features of LES MILLS On Demand is that it’s suitable for you, no matter your fitness level. Instructors often provide variations – and you can workout at your own pace to ensure you’re working hard in a safe environment.
What equipment or preparation do I need for a LES MILLS On Demand workout?
Many of the LES MILLS On Demand workouts don’t require any equipment at all. All you need is space to move safely (we recommend 6sq.m of clear space).
BODYPUMP and LES MILLS GRIT Strength are weights-based workouts that use a barbell and/or weights plates, CXWORX requires a resistance band and weight plates and RPM requires a stationary cycle.
It’s important that you hydrate before and after your workout. You don’t need anything fancy, good old H2O will do the trick.
