The success of Les Mills workouts on TVNZ during Level 4 lockdown has inspired TVNZ and Les Mills to keep encouraging Kiwis to get moving this year.
Creative Director Jackie Mills says the Les Mills mission to create a fitter planet starts at home and partnering with TVNZ will allow more New Zealanders to get active and stay active for free in 2021.
“I’m thrilled that we can offer exercise to music workouts for young people with BORN TO MOVE and workouts for all ages and fitness levels with our range of group fitness workouts. All you have to do is turn on TVNZ and start moving to music, it really is that easy!”
As of yesterday, TVNZ 2 is offering BORN TO MOVE workouts for 4-5 and 6-7 year-olds at 6am.
And from 18 January, TVNZ OnDemand will offer a range of workouts including BODYBALANCE, LES MILLS CORE, BODYATTACK, LES MILLS GRIT and BODYCOMBAT.
TVNZ 2 will follow with BODYBALANCE, LES MILLS CORE, BODYATTACK, LES MILLS GRIT and BODYCOMBAT workouts from February.
TVNZ Director of Content Cate Slater says the overwhelmingly positive feedback from viewers made it an easy decision.
“We’re all looking for a positive start to 2021, and what better way than with these workouts to deliver physical and mental health benefits. The range of Les Mills workouts across TVNZ 2 and TVNZ OnDemand gives New Zealanders of all ages the opportunity to find something that works for them.”
Managing Director of Les Mills New Zealand, Dione Forbes-Ryrie, adds: “We are also very proud that the collaboration won Best Community Contribution at the New Zealand Exercise Industry Awards last month, recognising the difference that Les Mills and TVNZ can make in the health of New Zealanders.”
