My fitness-loving friends, today I’m bringing you a giveaway that is very special to me. This year, Les Mills, the international group fitness brand I talk about all the time, is holding “Super Quarterly” events around the U.S. as part of a Super Q Tour, and I’m giving away a free ticket to one lucky winner to attend an event in any of the cities on the schedule. And the best part? You don’t have to be an instructor, because these events are open to anyone. Everyone can benefit from attending a Les Mills Super Quarterly event, because the energy is high, the fun is high, and it’s an all-around good time.
Before we get to the giveaway, let’s talk about what to expect from a Super Q event …
What is a Les Mills Super Quarterly event?
An all-day massive fitness event held at a big gym or convention center, in which “masterclasses” of all the latest Les Mills group fitness programs (like BODYPUMP, BODYATTACK, GRIT and more) are held, as well as educational sessions. The day usually lasts from 7:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and includes a full line-up of new releases presented by top Les Mills trainers and presenters. As an attendee, you can pick and choose which sessions you want to attend throughout the day, although some sessions require advanced registration to ensure your spot. There is also a second day of advanced instructor modules, which requires an additional fee. Instructors can earn up to 10 educational credits (CEUs and CECs) for various group fitness certifications. For a little teaser, you can check out a promo video here.
What should you bring to a Les Mills Super Quarterly event?
Bring an open mind and get ready to have fun and learn a lot with other members of the Les Mills Tribe (that’s what we call ourselves!). You’ll want to bring a few changes of workout clothes, as well as a sweatshirt and sweatpants to put over your clothes during the educational portions, as the rooms tend to get cold. Bring a change of shoes, a towel, some wet wipes to freshen up, extra deodorant, a notebook and pen, and lots of food and water. I like to bring a cooler with protein bars, coconut water, fresh fruit, a PB&J sandwich and more. While you can usually buy little items to nibble on at the location, it’s best to come prepared — believe me, you’ll be hungry. Also, be sure to bring cash, so you can purchase cool Les Mills clothing and merchandise.
What can you expect to do at a Les Mills Super Quarterly event?
You can expect to sweat and move a lot, along with hundreds of other people. You could potentially work out all day long, if you attend back-to-back class sessions. And there will be tons of instructors and participants, ranging from beginner to superstar, so anyone can go. You will be able to take “masterclasses” from some of the finest Les Mills presenters and trainers, who are at the top of their game. And you can take pictures with them, chat with them and learn from them before and after sessions and during the education portions. You’ll also get to feel the energy of a packed masterclass, which can be an absolutely amazing experience worthy of goosebumps. As a participant, you’ll learn how to move better in class, and as an instructor you’ll work on your technique and learn new and cutting-edge coaching principles, as Les Mills shares its latest research at each event. If this sounds good to you, you can sign up by visiting the Super Q Tour website today.

I attended a Les Mills Quarterly event back when I lived in Orlando a few years ago and was absolutely blown away by the energy in every single session. Let’s just say I’m not the only one who is passionate about Les Mills. I truly cannot wait for May 16 to come, because every time I attend a Les Mills training or event, my love of the brand is reignited (which is saying a lot!).
GIVEAWAY ALERT: Win a ticket to a Les Mills Super Quarterly
This giveaway is open to everybody, whether you’re an instructor or just a participant. All you have to do is travel to or live near one of cities listed above and attend the event. The regular one-day registration fee is $129 per event, which includes all of the sessions for the day. This giveaway will end on Monday 4/6 (which is also Les Mills launch day for me in the Bay Area) at midnight, so you have a little less than a week to enter. Tell your friends!
If you’ve always wanted experience the amazingness of Les Mills classes and your gym doesn’t offer them, this is a great chance to try out as many programs as you can in one day, while rubbing elbows with Les Mills celebrities and instructors. And hey, if you go to the San Francisco event, I’ll be sure to share some of my snacks with you!
