Become a Les Mills Personal Trainer FAQS

  1. PT Levels and Rent

    At Les Mills we have PT levels that allow members to choose the right trainer at the price they want. Plus this makes it easier for PT’s to start, by having a lower rent and an easier price point to sell from. Levels are based on a PT’s experience and qualification. This means as you get better you progress up the levels, if you’re already Chuck Norris you can kick in at level three. (Although Chuck Norris most likely has his own level) 

    Level one rent - $60 per week for 12 weeks then $120 per week +REPs

    Level two and three - $200 per week + REPs

    All new trainers also receive a four week rent free start-up period. All Trainers also receive four weeks rent free per year after the first year so you can have a holiday – we’re awesome like that!

  2. How we promote you

    It’s important to be able to promote yourself as a Personal Trainer and being on the Les Mills website is the best platform for you to do that. Members can contact you directly or access your social media platforms to find more information on you and your service.

    In club, we promote Personal Training and individual trainers with our PT collateral. Through banners, brochures and the PT hub our members have access to business cards and trainer information.

  3. PT Support

    Your Personal Training Manager is there to support you and set you up for success. Being a Personal Trainer is not hard but it can be complicated. The PTM at each gym knows how to build a strong business and how to avoid the common mistakes that new trainers make.

  4. The exercise competencies

    This is a Gap Analysis Test and allows us to assess your current knowledge and what we need to fill in for you.

    Teach the following exercises:

    Squat or Dead Lift

    Lat Pull Down or Bench Press

    Cable-Standing SA Cable Row or Wood Chop

    Hover

    Answer the following questions:

    What is the major joint being used?

    What movement is happening at the joint?

    What muscles are moving the joint?

    What is the concentric/eccentric component?

    Give a progression & regression for each exercise

    How would you spot for this exercise?

  5. The Interview

    The interview is pretty standard. We ask you stuff and you get to ask us stuff. We want to know about your background and why you want to be a Les Mills Personal Trainer. As part of the interview you will also need to take the Personal Training Manager [PTM] through a workout. This is for us to see how you operate as a Personal Trainer and what your style is. Don’t worry if you are really new to PT we will train you really well.

  6. The Fitness Test

    Great Personal Trainers practise what they preach so here is where it starts. The Personal Training Manager will put you through your paces using a points based fitness test, check it out below.

  7. How to get started
