Les Mills main logo BlackLes Mills courses are in high demand and the popularity in Australia continues to grow.

Becoming a group fitness instructor could not be easier, with high quality training at Les Mills and the Australian Fitness Academy.

Most facilities in Australia require all new fitness staff to have a Certificate III in Fitness as a bare minimum to take Group Fitness Classes, with many requiring both the Certificate III & IV in Fitness.

At AFA we can help you with gaining the Certificate III & IV in Fitness before completing the Les Mills workshops to qualify you as a Les Mills Instructor as well as a Gym Instructor and Personal Trainer.  After completion of the Certificate III & IV in Fitness you can go on to complete the individual Les Mills training in an area of your choice  by completing a 2 day Initial Module Training. See below for the full course details.
