Packed with personality - Les Mills Auckland gym
Boasting an impressive 12,000 active members, the Auckland flagship remained operational throughout its extensive renovation process to ensure that members could continue with their training programmes while the fitout was taking place around them. This produced some creative thinking with the RPM and cardio zones at one stage being housed in the carpark while their new and improved versions were created. The project also had a tight deadline to meet the Les Mills Global Summit hosting 650 people.
Les Mills was born in 1968 through Les and Colleen Mills’ love of exercise and their desire to see people get, and keep, active. This passion for exercise has continued to be fuelled over the following four decades. The influence of the Les Mills culture extends well beyond the walls of the 10 Les Mills clubs as Les Mills is recognised internationally as an innovative health and fitness company whose group fitness classes are sold to over 12,000 gyms worldwide.
Members don’t just buy into the latest gym gear but the whole Les Mills experience – vibrant, exciting, inspiring, encouraging and for many, turning what was once considered a chore into an enjoyable experience. Exercise bike technologies now incorporate full integrated screens where you can watch TV or have a virtual trainer to help you guide you through your fitness programme. Technology is just one part of the picture complemented by the passion and personality of everything from the décor to the professional staff. Even the Auckland carpark with over 300 spaces is a cut above the norm and far exceeds any council requirements for carparking, because Les Mills understand that the carparking is all part of the experience.
Facilities range from a huge main gym, private women’s gym, three levels of group fitness studios, physio, nutritionists through to the Les Mills Kids Club.
And what better way to reflect the vibrancy than with striking Resene colours? The interior colour palette is a striking combination of hues in Resene Environmental Choice durable finishes of Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterborne enamel and Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen waterborne enamel. The palette moves from the silvery grey tones of Resene Iron through to the dark moody hue of Resene Revolver revved up with Resene Christalle (strong purple), Resene Flame Red (bright red), Resene Freedom (blue green), Resene Havoc (pure red), Resene Bright Spark (hot yellow), Resene Valhalla (blue violet) and Resene Alabaster (blackened white) and Resene Black as stark off white and black contrasts.
Ecohush sound foam adorning the walls of the RPM room is finished in Resene Havoc, a striking bold red guaranteed to help get the heart pumping, while Resene Uracryl 402 clear urethane provides a clear non slip finish.
From tip to toe, the new look is vibrant, fresh and invigorating, a fitting reflection of Les Mills.
