The Les Mills Auckland City club is the home of Les Mills Fitness. It contains the history, heritage and heart of our Les Mills group.

Through the years we've undergone regular renovations and repairs, and it's definitely time again to put some love back into our beloved Auckland City Gym.

To keep up with the needs of our gym members and the future of our group fitness classes, we're planning to upgrade several parts of the gym and provide permanent dedicated gym car parking over the next three years.

As with most good things in life, this project will take time and patience. We're having to sacrifice some things to make way for others, but we're confident the end result will be great for our members.

To keep up to date on the latest redevelopment news, check in regularly to this page and ensure your notifications are enabled on your Les Mills app. If you're unsure how to turn these on, please ask one of our friendly Les Mills Auckland City reception staff.

We fully appreciate your support and patience as we work as fast as we can to make these improvements.

Past updates

Update 24 October 2018 

There’s heaps of construction happening right now with the new Cycle Studio due to open in December. As well as bringing ‘The Trip’ to the club, there’ll be new Virtual classes and an even bigger timetable. Plus, there’ll be new bikes for everyone as we’re getting brand new Stages Bikes to replace the current ones.

An update regarding our Boxing area: this will be closed for renovations from mid-November until January as we turn the space into a boutique facility with brand new bags, classes and gear. Meanwhile our Functional Studio is on track to open in January and development is currently underway for a new type of functional class. Watch this space.

If you’re a parent who uses Kids Club you’ll already know that the last day of operating Kids Club will be Thursday 20 December 2018. As part of the redevelopment we’ve been reviewing the most effective way to utilise our spaces and we’ve made the decision to close down Kids Club. By making Studio 2 available throughout all of the day, more members will benefit and you’ll see an increase in classes available, including virtual classes, added to the timetable from early next year.

 

Update 21 September 2018 - The Arena

Construction of our new Cycle Studio is well underway and we’re on track to open in November. Construction of our Functional Studio has also started with the Boxing Studio soon to follow.

Check out the architects images above!

 

Update 30 July 2018 – The Arena

The renovation work is about to get serious with changes coming to the Arena. As part of the redevelopment the whole Arena will be rezoned into a space for all members to access. This will include a new Functional Studio, a revamped Boxing Studio and the new Immersive Cycling Studio. There will also be expanding changing room facilities compared to what is currently there.

What does that mean for CrossFit HPU? HPU is staying at Les Mills until 30 September – but in a slightly different location. HPU is now located where Ringside boxing currently is, sharing the space with Ringside. Not all the equipment currently in HPU will be coming to the new space, so we will be reprogramming classes to make the best use of equipment and space. Other non-HPU and Ringside trainers will also be allowed to use the space, but HPU and Ringside classes will always take priority. Tu Kaha Brazilian Jujitsu is also making a change, and has now shifted out of its Arena space. Please check out www.tukaha.co.nz for further details on BJJ.

Check out the FAQ’s below and for more info or see reception at the club.

 

Update 28 July 2018 – Carparking

As we shift things around due to construction work during the redevelopment, from the end of this month we will be losing 7 carparks in front of the Group Fitness studios and losing some on top of the garage. This is to allow us to get construction equipment in place, relocate the maintenance resources, and relocate motorbike and scooter parking.

From the end of July, we’ll also be temporarily relocating motorbike and scooter parking to an area on the rooftop of the garage. This will be in a marked-out area to the immediate right of the top of the ramp.

Please check out the latest parking map here and the FAQ’s below and for more info or see reception at the club.

 

Update 22 May 2018

As part of The Home of Sweat Getting Reinvented, Les Mills Auckland City will be getting a brand new cycle studio. The exact open date is yet to be confirmed – construction is never a set thing – but we’re aiming for November / December this year. The studio will be the largest of its kind in the country. It will have the feel of a theatre with a massive screen to show THE TRIP™ and Virtual cycle classes, 100 bikes, an amazing sound system and a totally immersive atmosphere.

Not only that, but from 1 November 2018 you’ll no longer have to pay extra for any cycle classes.

Check out the FAQ’s below and for more info or see reception at the club.

Auckland City Redevelopment FAQ

  1. Where can I be kept up to date?

    The best place to check will be Facebook, our website and our DigiScreens 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 also get the latest alerts.

  2. Is it safe to work out while the redevelopment works are happening?

    Health & Safety is #1, so our team and the construction contractors will make sure that steps are in place to separate any building activity from where you work out.

  3. Will there be changes to equipment at all?

    Some of the older equipment will be replaced with more modern on-trend gear, but don’t worry, they’ll work out the same parts of your body.

  4. Are we getting aircon?

    As part of the refurbishment we’ll be bringing air con into the new Cycle Studio and looking at cooling solutions for the GRIT® studio and increasing fans in other workout areas.

  5. Will there be as much room in the gym after the upgrade?

    Yep, in fact there’ll be more room. With the redesign we’ll be converting more space into workout areas.

  6. With RPM® shifting do we get more room to do GRIT®?

    Yes, more space will be opened up in the GRIT studio which will be reconfigured.

  7. Will there still be a Boxing area?

    Yes, there will be a dedicated Boxing Studio with bags and functional equipment, however the ring will be removed to create more space. 

  8. What’s going to be in the Functional Studio?

    There will be a Rig and the latest functional equipment including kettle bells, bikes and battle rope.

  9. Will classes be taught in the new area?

    Yes, there will be classes run in the Functional Studio and Boxing area and they will not cost any extra for members to attend. When classes aren’t on you’ll be able to use the areas for training.

  10. What about Tu Kaha Brazilian Jujitsu?

    BJJ is shifting out of its current space on Sunday 29 July to a new location. Please check out www.tukaha.co.nz for further details and the latest updates.

  11. What does that mean for CrossFit HPU?

    CrossFit HPU is staying at Les Mills until 30 September– but in a slightly different location. Come Monday 30 July HPU will be located where Ringside boxing currently is, sharing the space with Ringside. Not all the equipment currently in HPU will be coming to the new space, so we will be reprogramming classes to make the best use of equipment and space. Other non-HPU and Ringside trainers will also be allowed to use the space, but HPU and Ringside classes will always take priority.

  12. And what is happening with the Arena?

    As part of the redevelopment the whole Arena area will be rezoned into a space for all members to access. This will include a new Functional Studio, a revamped Boxing Studio and the new Immersive Cycling Studio. There will also be expanding changing room facilities compared to what is currently there.

  13. What about motorbike and scooter parking?

    As of the end of July, we have temporarily relocated motorbike and scooter parking to an area on the rooftop of the garage. This is in a marked-out area to the immediate right of the top of the ramp. Please do not park your motorbike or scooter in the old parking area outside the garage, this blocks emergency service access and you will be ticketed or towed. 

  14. What’s happening with car parking out the front of the Group Fitness studios and on top of the garage?

    As we shift things around due to construction work during the redevelopment, as of the end of July we have lost 7 carparks in front of the Group Fitness studios and some on top of the garage. This is to allow us to get construction equipment in place, relocate the maintenance resources, and relocate motorbike and scooter parking.

  15. What’s with the parking now?

    To give more members a fair chance of getting a car park, we’ve limited car parks on site to 90mins. When the new carpark opens it will have 90-min of free parking and you’ll also be able to pay to stay longer. We’ll also have the car parks in Sale St available for you to use up until we open the new Wellesley St carpark.

    *Please check out the latest carparking map online and at Reception

  16. When will the new carpark open?

    All going well the Wellesley St car park is scheduled to open mid-2019.

  17. Will there be changes to the timetable?

    Probably, but we’ll give you heaps of notice. The good news is that once everything’s finished we’ll have more classes more often – including additional 30min and 45min classes, new virtual classes and more boxing classes.

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

    No, the main reason we’re taking it in stages is so we don’t need to close the entire club. The club hours will also remain the same throughout too.

  19. How long will it take?

    All up we see the work happening in stages over the next 3 years, which will be spread out to minimise disruption as much as possible. 

  20. When’s it all happening?

    Now. The carpark has already begun, the refreshed Studio 2 is open and the new Immersive Cycle Studio and Functional Studio will open later this year. At the same time you’ll see some minor works happening around the club over the next 6 months.

  21. What’s happening?

    Well, the club has been at its current location since 1979 and it’s time to make it a little bigger, brighter and a lot better. This year sees Stage 1 of some major renovations including an upgraded Studio 2, a brand new Immersive Cycle Studio, a new Functional Studio, a revamped Boxing Studio and the construction of a new multi-storey carpark.
