How to Get There
To gain Advanced and Elite qualification, you’ll need to complete and pass the new Advanced Modules 1 & 2.
The new Advanced Module 1 is program-specific and focuses on how to better teach in the essence of the program. It’s an in-depth exploration of technique and coaching. Instructors teach and receive feedback by a world-class Trainer twice. To attend Module 2, you must first complete Module 1.
Module 2 is a two-day generic module that completely immerses you in the Les Mills™ culture and values. It will help you unlock the skills and tools that make good instructors become rock stars that pack the room every time. Module 2 will improve your ability to connect with the class in front of you and take every single member to success. You’ll learn how to use the 5 Key Elements in a more holistic way – creating the change on the floor faster. You’ll also explore how to teach with authenticity and contrast. As part of Module 2, you’ll teach and receive feedback by world-class Trainers four times. At the end of Module 2, if your teaching matches the criteria, you will rise to Advanced or even to Elite level.
Note: If you teach several Les Mills™ programs, you have the possibility to present two different programs at Module 2, but you must have completed Module 1 for both programs first.
Where to Next?
Advanced Instructor status is proof of your ability to truly connect with your audience and exemplify the Les Mills™ approach to fitness. Think of it as you, amplified.
