Online group fitness management course guides revitalize Bali’s gym
Global group fitness provider Les Mills explained how he helped the new gym owner on the Indonesian island of Bali revitalize his club based on the information he learned from the management course. Les Mills Asia Pacific’s online group fitness.
By purchasing Bali Fitness Seminyak in January of this year, the refurbishment of the space by new owner Alex Quinders included a complete overhaul of the group fitness studio, with many design decisions guided by information he learned from the group. Les Mills course.
Quinders explained that “the club was run down and due to COVID business was very quiet.
“It was in fact the first gym in Bali to offer a wide range of LES MILLS classes and for this reason, it still has a good reputation to this day for the quality of its classes.
“Even though I was a newcomer to the company, I had been a fan of Les Mills courses for years, having experienced them in Europe.
“Through training sessions with my local Business Partnerships Manager, Iskander Mahbob, I got as much information as possible about studio design. I believe that the combination of this expert advice and my personal gym experience has kept the club in their position as the premier and best provider of LES MILLS classes in Bali.
As part of the redesign, Quinders is replacing the old club weights with SMART TECH equipment, stating “I had used SMART TECH in Europe, so I understood the difference in quality compared to other brands. Our instructors love that they can use SMART TECH in their lessons, especially because no one else in Bali has it; and members appreciate the material because it is very manoeuvrable and extremely ergonomic.
“I also invested a lot of money in the STAGES bikes… so we had a lot of renovations to do. But it was worth it, because it means that we are now providing our members with the best possible group fitness experiences. “
The design decisions of Quinders’ studio were significantly influenced by the “Build a Big Stadium” section of Les Mills Asia Pacific’s online fitness management course. “This course gave me a lot of design ideas. Without it, I don’t think I would have realized the importance of things like the stage and the instructor’s sound system.
“As a result of what I learned, we decided to specifically build a stage with a spotlight, so that all members had a great view of the instructor. The result is that instructors feel more visible now; and the impact of that is a team of instructors who appreciate their role on stage much more. Of course, a key part of our success is our instructors, who deliver this ‘rockstar’ experience, so we understand how important it is to make sure they enjoy their time at the club.
Quinders says most of the members were extremely happy and appreciated the major design changes and upgrading their club.
Explaining that the vibe in the gym has completely changed from colorful and cluttered to dark, clean, modern and organized, he added, “It was more in line with their expectations.
“We now have a new look and the best group fitness equipment for our members.
“Of course, every time you do something new, there are always reviews.
“Most of the criticism I received was about removing almost the mirrors that members were facing during training. At first it was hard for them to understand why we did it, but once we explained to them that it could make new users more comfortable and welcome, they got it and got used to it.
This was yet another design element he received from the Online Group Fitness Management program.
Prior to the renovation, the aging nature of the club negatively impacted its reputation as an employer of choice among local instructors.
However, following the improvements, the club is once again attracting “rockstar” instructors.
Quinders concludes, “Today all of the greatest instructors are eager to work for us. They love teaching in our gym as it is small enough that they can have personal contact with all of the members, and they pride themselves on teaching with awesome equipment such as SMART TECH bikes and Stages. And that’s great because as soon as the tourists come back to Bali, I will have to hire more freelancers.
