Les Mills Extreme is about to go through a major refurbishment!

It’s all about increasing the amount of space we dedicate to working out – that means much better, and bigger, studios and workout areas. While we’re at it, we’re also undertaking earthquake strengthening, which will ensure our building will continue to stand up to the test of time (and Wellington’s shaky ground). 

Once works are complete, we’ll be re-launching as Les Mills Taranaki Street.

We’re itching to get started! Building works kick off in March 2018 and we expect it to take about 12 months to complete. We're going to do it in stages for minimal disruption to our members, and as health and safety is our number one priority, it means that at times there will be areas which are off limits while they're being worked on.

Recent updates

Update 5 November

Get ready to experience a Cycle class like never before! Our new Cycle Studio is now open and features not only The Trip® but also virtual classes, along with RPM® and Sprint®.

Even better it’s now FREE. The level two weights/cardio areas have also re-opened and are looking great, and normal access has resumed to Studio 2.

With Level 2 sorted, we’ve now begun work on Level 1. As of today, construction has started on our new Functional Training Area, Women’s Gym and Boxing Studio and will re-open early 2019.

We can’t wait to bring you more new spaces to workout in and enjoy. In the meantime – book a Cycle class today!

Past updates

Update 24 September

The newly refurbished weights area on Level 3 is now open. We have temporarily closed all spaces on Level 2 and construction has commenced. The Cycle Studio has moved into Studio 3 on Level 1 while this work takes place. Check back for further updates as we progress!


Update 13 September

Great news – you’re getting your Level 3 back earlier! On Friday, 14 September from lunch time we will start to dismantle Studio 3 and move equipment up to Level 3. We apologise in advance that your training may be disrupted that afternoon/evening. 


Update 16 August 2018

As you know we’re busy working away on making your club better for you.

Access to Studio 2 (from Monday 20 - Sunday 26 August) will be through the functional training area only. Please slow down when walking through the area and wait in the Studio 2 waiting area, not the access way.

Virtual classes will also be unavailable from 20 - 26 August but we’ve got such a wide range of classes, maybe it’s a good chance to try something new?

Extreme Refurbishment FAQ

  1. Why the upgrade?

    Over the next 12 months the club will be undergoing a major refurbishment to increase the amount of space we dedicate to working out. That means better studios and workout areas, and much more of it. While we're at it, we're adding additional structural steel throughout the club to ensure we remain ahead of the game so that the building continues to stand the test of time.

  2. What? Where is this club?

    Don't worry - it's what Les Mills Extreme will soon be called. When we've finished the club it will be relaunched as the new "Les Mills Taranaki St".

  3. So, what will we end up with?

    A major change! A new Group Fitness studio, a new Functional Lifting area, a new Boxing Studio, a new Immersive Chain Studio, a new Functional Athletic area, an updated Women's Gym, more equipment on the gym floor and more room for working out. Plus, the club will be getting a design makeover.

  4. Does that mean an increase in fees?

    No, not at all. Everything else will remain the same when it comes to you and your membership agreement. We're simply changing the name of the club to better reflect where it's located.

  5. When will it all happen?

    The works will kick off in March this year and the majority of it will take place over the next 12 months.

  6. Will there be as much room after the upgrade?

    Yes, in fact there'll be even more room. With the redesign we'll be converting several offices and storage spaces into workout spaces.

  7. What’s happening with the cycle studio?

    There’s a brand new immersive Cycle Studio now open for you to enjoy. As well as our usual RPM and Sprint classes, The Trip and virtual classes have been added. Best of all it’s free. Check out our timetable and book a class today!

  8. What’s happening with boxing?

    The Boxing Studio is currently closed for renovations and will be open Jan 2019.

  9. Will there be any changes to the changing rooms?

    There will be some minor work to the entrance of the female changing rooms but nothing too disruptive.

  10. Will there be any changes to equipment at all?

    Yes, some of the older equipment on Level 3 will be replaced with new gear, that works out the same parts of your body but is much more modern and reliable. 

  11. Will the entire club be closed at any point?

    No, we'll be taking it in stages without the need to close the entire club. As we go along we'll keep you informed if any gear might not be available due to construction constraints.

  12. Will there be changes to the timetable?

    During the upgrade there will be some disruption to the timetable but we'll try to keep that to a minimum. Once the works have finished there'll be more classes more often - including additional 30min and 45min classes, virtual classes and more boxing classes in the new Boxing Studio.

  13. Is it safe to work out on a building site?

    Health & Safety is our #1 priority, so our staff and construction contractors will ensure that steps are in place to separate building activity safely from workout and access areas.

  14. What’s happening with Proactive?

    Proactive are next door on Taranaki St and will continue to use our facilities as they currently do.

  15. Where can I be kept up to date?

    The best place to check will be Facebook, our website and our digi-screens in club. Make sure you're on our e-mail list and that you've allowed notifications on the Les Mills app so you can get the latest alerts.

  16. Will there be air conditioning in the new Cycle Studio?

    Yes, there certainly will.

  17. What will the new cycle studio look like?

    The detailed design is still to be finalised, however, it will have the feel of a theatre with a massive screen to show THE TRIP™ and Virtual cycle classes, 63 bikes, an amazing sound system and a totally immersive atmosphere.

  18. Where can I find out more about THE TRIP™?

    Click here for more information about THE TRIP™.

  19. Will I still be able to use my cycle shoes?

    Yes, absolutely! The cleats on your cycle shoes will still work.
