Here's where you'll find the latest information around COVID-19 and what it means for our clubs.
Updated: 23 June 2022
What is happening with the clubs?
Since 14 April New Zealand has been in the Orange setting of the Traffic Light system. All of our clubs are open and operating under the Orange setting.
Where do I get the latest info about COVID-19?
www.covid19.govt.nz is the first place you should go for official information. Here you’ll find the latest Government updates, info on the disease itself, how to protect yourself, information for communities and other resources.
What are the symptoms of COVID-19?
Please see here for COVID-19’s symptoms.
What do I do if I think I’m getting sick?
Firstly, if you feel ill at any stage you should stay away from the gym and self-isolate. Follow the health advice at www.covid19.govt.nz and ring the National Telehealth service on 0800 358 5453.
What if I test positive for COVID-19 and need to put my membership on Pause?
If you test positive for COVID-19 please ring us or e-mail [email protected] to let us know, and we will place your membership on a Medical Pause.
The Traffic Light system, also known as the COVID-19 Protection Framework, is the Government’s approach to managing COVID-19 in the community. It came into effect on 3 December 2021.
What does the Traffic Light system mean for gyms?
In the Orange setting there are no restrictions for gyms.
Does Les Mills require its members to be vaccinated against COVID-19?
From Tuesday 5 April, there is no longer a requirement to use My Vaccine Pass in gyms in New Zealand. As the Government is no longer mandating the use of the passes, you will not need to have a pass to access Les Mills.
What information will Les Mills hold about My Vaccine Pass?
Does Les Mills support getting vaccinated?
Yes, we support the Government’s vaccination programme to protect yourself, your whānau and our community. If you’re looking for how to book your vaccination, BookMyVaccine is the place to start.
Does Les Mills require its workers to be vaccinated?
From Tuesday 5 April the Government vaccination mandate for gym workers will no longer be in effect, so Les Mills workers will no longer be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Where can I find out facts about the COVID-19 vaccine used in New Zealand?
There has been much discussion about COVID-19 vaccines, and here is where you can get the facts including vaccine development, safety, effectiveness and approval in New Zealand – and what to do about false and misleading information and scams.
What safety protocols and guidelines does Les Mills follow?
We are following ExerciseNZ’s guidelines on best practice for keeping members safe at all times, which have been developed with both Sport New Zealand and Worksafe using the Ministry of Health’s protocols.
What will Les Mills do to keep me safe?
We have extensive processes and protocols to ensure your safety:
What hygiene etiquette does everyone have to follow?
In the Orange setting, where possible keep your distance from others; and bring your own yoga mat / boxing wraps and gloves. We ask that every member takes responsibility for their personal hygiene and also respects the space of others. In general, this means washing / sanitising hands, covering coughs and sneezes, bringing your own towel and using it, and not sharing or touching anything that you don’t have to.
Do I need to wear a mask in the gym?
While it is no longer mandatory to wear a mask in gyms, if you’d like to wear one you are more than welcome to.
What about physical distancing?
In the Orange setting we ask that you please respect each other’s personal space and try to keep your distance from others. Our studios will also have dots on the floor to assist with spacing.
In the Orange setting there are no minimum distancing requirements.
Are there limits on class numbers?
No, there are no number limits in the Orange setting.
Are there limits on Gym Floor numbers in the Red setting?
No, there are no number limits in the Orange setting.
Are sanitising stations available?
Yes, these are throughout the club and at Reception. The Ministry of Health recommends you wash your hands with soap and water often for at least 20 seconds.
Will you be doing extra cleaning?
Yes, you will see more cleaning taking place during the day and at night we will continue doing our enhanced deep cleans throughout the club. We will also continue anti-viral protective misting and ask that you wipe down equipment before and after use to help us keep equipment clean.
What is a ‘deep clean’?
Our deep clean is from floor to ceiling and includes all equipment - every weight, every bar, every bench, every surface, all machines and all equipment, as well as all changing rooms, wet areas, common spaces and shared facilities. They are all cleaned with hospital grade cleaning products to ensure our facilities continue to be safe to use. All staff and contractors must follow strict PPE requirements and stringent procedures when undertaking a deep clean in the club.
What is ‘anti-viral misting’?
Misting’ is a mechanical method used to apply an anti-viral protection that forms a protective coating barrier for up to 90 days. We use the Novalent Viral Protection system throughout our clubs every 60 days to further boost the effectiveness of our deep cleans. This process has been demonstrated to have a residual kill rate of 99% against SARS-CoV-2, the strain that causes COVID-19.
Under the COVID-19 Protection Framework, do I need to do anything before coming to the gym?
Yes, please read these Conditions of Entry below. After that, by accessing the club each time you will be accepting the Conditions of Entry.
What are the Conditions of Entry I need to abide by to access the gym in the Traffic Light system?
The Conditions of Entry are:
When you scan your app or membership card coming into the club you’ll be confirming your agreement to these Conditions of Entry. You’ll also be confirming that you will abide by all Health & Safety procedures and protocols.
Please note, the Ministry of Health warns that if you have an underlying health condition and/or are over 70, you may be at greater risk of COVID-19 becoming a severe illness, if contracted. If you do choose to attend the gym please ensure you follow all Ministry of Health guidelines in addition to these club conditions of entry.
I’ve recovered from COVID-19 – can I come back to the gym?
If you have been diagnosed as having COVID-19 and have completed your self-isolation period, and as long as you are free of COVID-19 symptoms, you can then return to the gym. Please follow all COVID-19 processes and protocols including personal hygiene expectations.
Will I still need to bring a towel?
Yes. No towel = no workout. This will be strictly policed, and you will be asked to leave if you have not brought your towel with you to use during your workout.
When is the best time to come to the gym?
Everyone has different times they can make it in, but you might like to consider coming when it’s less busy. Checkout this nifty little graph of average attendance of every club by every day by every hour, to figure out when works best for you.
Can I still bring a friend to the gym as a member privilege?
Yes and we’d love to have you bring them! Please note that any guests will still need to agree to our Conditions of Entry and sign our general waiver.
Will the timetables be the same?
We’re making sure that our timetables can manage the flow of people to and from studios and changing rooms and give ourselves – and you – time to wipe down and clean equipment between classes. Please refer to the app or website for the latest timetable.
Will I need to book every class I go to?
No, you will not need to book every class – only those that are usually bookable. To be sure which is which, please check on the Les Mills App. The best way to ensure you get a spot in your favourite non-bookable class is to come early as it’s a first-come, first-served basis.
Are you providing stretching mats, swiss balls and rollers?
Yes, these are still available – please clean them before and after use to keep everyone safe.
Are you providing boxing gloves?
No. To minimise sharing of equipment we will not be providing boxing gloves. Please bring your own.
How will you let people know about the any restrictions?
Even before you enter the club you will see any applicable COVID-19 signage. We will also inform you via e-mail, our app notifications and this website.

New Lynn Refurbishment
Les Mills CEREMONY® has arrived New Lynn! We’re the first club after Les Mills Auckland City to get this super-popular programme. Studio 2 has been turned into a space designed specifically for CEREMONY®. At the same time, we’re taking the opportunity to update some of the look and feel throughout the club.
Studio 2 is now a functional training studio with a full CEREMONY® set-up, plus it’s designed so that Les Mills BODYPUMP® and Les Mills GRIT® classes can be held in there. That means that you have 13 more classes a week to choose from in Studio 2!
CEREMONY® is a 45-minute functional training workout using different exercises and multiple pieces of equipment. The focus is on whole-body, strength, cardio, and conditioning – all within a shared community experience. Click here to find out more or check out the timetable to book a class.
Yes, CEREMONY® is one of Les Mills’ most popular classes with a limited number of spaces, so you will need to book in advance using the app or the website member portal. When you swipe into the club before your class you will be given a CEREMONY® tag to hand in to the instructor so they know you’ve got a spot. If you can no longer make the class please cancel it as soon as you can, so others can have a go.
Yes, we’ll remain open throughout the refurbishment.
Now that the Studio 2 refurbishment is complete and CEREMONY® is here, we’ve increased the number of classes in Studio 2. Check out the timetable here.
Absolutely. Health & Safety is our #1 consideration, so we’ll have precautions in place to ensure that you can still work out safely. Our team and the construction contractors will also ensure that steps are in place to separate any building activity from where you work out.
This page will be your go-to to keep yourself in the loop with these changes at the club. We'll also be keeping you up to date via email and app notifications so make sure we’ve got your current e-mail address and switch on notifications on the Les Mills app!
Casual Day Passes are available for purchase at Reception. They are $30 for a single entry or you can purchase a 10 visit concession card for $250.

Around the country we have a range of different membership options. The price depends on how long you'd like to commit to and which club you'd like to belong to. Our Joining Fee is normally $29. Check out our club pages to see what options and prices are available.

Check your membership agreement to see what Pause benefit you might have and the conditions that apply to it.

What is a Fit3d Body scan?
Our Fit3D Body scanner provides you with a body analysis comprising hundreds of metrics and images in one 40 second scan. You can share this data with your PT who’ll help you with programmes to achieve your fitness goals.
How does it work?
The scanner works by using a ‘non-invasive, near infrared camera’ with a standard image sensor. It takes around 24,000 photos of you and then uses a precise algorithm to determine your measurements. Our Fit3D places you in the same position every time you come in for a scan so you can truly compare your images over time.
What does the scan measure?
Fit3D tracks your body measurements at each scan. Measurements include: neck, bust (for women), chest (for men), biceps, forearm, waist, thigh, hip, and calf. You can use your measurements in any way you like and monitor changes over time to see where you are gaining or losing inches!
Our Fit3D Body Scan provides a thorough analysis of your posture. The Fit3D Body Scan posture report includes an analysis of your balance and evaluation of your head, neck, shoulders, hips, knees, and ankle positioning to show where your posture may need improvement.
Fit3D has created a formula that uses information about your body to create a score called a Body Shape Rating (BSR). Your BSR is compared against other people with similar age, height, sex, and weight. Increasing the density of your body by lowering your body fat and increasing your muscle will improve your BSR over time.
How long will each test take?
The scan itself takes less than 60 seconds! Plan to be in the gym for about 15 minutes for your first Fit3D Body Scan. Subsequent visits only take about 5 minutes.
How much does it cost?
A Fit3D scan costs $29 per scan. We’re currently running a half price introductory offer of $14.50 for three weeks. Email [email protected] to book in today!
How do I book it in?
Visit here to book your scan today.
Where do I go for my scan?
Currently our Les Mills Takapuna club is the only club with a body scanner. Details to book here .
When and how do I get my results?
Your confidential analytics are sent directly to your email, or a handy app, to help you identify issues and monitor your progress.
How should I prepare for my scan?
Please don’t perform vigorous exercise 2 hours prior to your test, however you are completely fine to exercise straight afterwards
If you’ve got long hair, you’ll need to tie their hair in a bun
Do not have a large meal or drink large amounts within 2 hours of your test
Who is a Fit3D scan suitable for?
People working towards weight loss goals or body transformations.
Athletes wanting to track changes in measurements
Men and women that need accurate measurements for clothing shopping – several brands integrate with Fit3D to ensure a great fit!
Competitive bodybuilders tracking changes in body appearance during off season or during contest prep.
Is the Fit3D Body Composition Scanner safe?
Yes! The 3D cameras use the same technology as Microsoft Kinect, which has over 20 million users in the USA alone. It is even safe for those who are pregnant or who have artificial implants/joints.
When you stand on the scanner platform it will rotate very slowly. By the end of 2018 over 1,000,000 people had been tested on the scanner and there had been no reports of anyone falling off.
What should I wear for a Fit3D Body Scan?
Because your report will include detailed measurements of your body, it’s best to wear as little clothing as you’re comfortable with. Some people choose to wear form-fitting athletic wear like leggings and a sports bra. Others choose to do their scan in underwear or even nude. You always have full privacy during your scan and your images are never shared with our staff unless you specifically choose to do so. We suggest avoiding compression clothes for the most accurate measurements.
Who will see my test results?
Using your private online login, your 3D images will only be seen by you. Your measurements (numbers) and the outline of your body will be seen by your testing technician. Your full name (no other details) will be listed on our client database. Les Mills Fit3D approved personal trainers will have access to this list. This allows them to request access to their members/clients results. If you accept someone’s request (via an email to you) to view your results they will have full access to them. Please contact [email protected] if you would like to discuss this further.
