Jane’s Gym Now has Les Mills Programming!

Its official. Jane’s Gym now has Les Mills programming! Super exciting, right? Wait. What? You don’t know what Les Mills programs are? Oh, you’re in for a treat!

Les Mills International is a fitness company based out of New Zealand but has quickly become the number one fitness program in the world. Yes, the WORLD! Les Mills International says “We’re on a mission to create a fitter planet. This doesn’t mean making people work out. It means helping people fall in love with fitness so that they want to work out.” Don’t you just love that? If we can help you WANT to come to the gym, wouldn’t that win most of the battle for you in your fitness journey?

We think yes. And so does Les Mills International! Les Mills is the brand behind our new classes at Jane’s Gym, specifically GRIT Plyo, GRIT Strength, BodyCombat and soon to be Body Pump and GRIT Cardio. Our instructors who will be teaching these classes have gone through an intense training process that not only pushed them physically (so that we can push YOU physically!) but pushed them mentally. Sometimes the mental part of fitness is a tougher battle than the physical side, can I get an ‘amen’? But if we can do as LMI encourages—“by creating life-changing fitness experiences every time, everywhere” then we will have accomplished our goal.

Why Are We An Advocare Gym?

Advocare products and wellness

For years the gyms owned and operated by RussCorp made a conscious decision not to carry or promote a specific brand of supplements. The reason for the decision was solid. We understood that good nutrition and exercise were the fundamental keys to fitness. That fact remains true.

But the reality is that we can also use some special assistance. The problem with supplements is that they must be safe, extremely well researched, and they should have a specific purpose (calorie burn, probiotic replacement, workout recovery, etc.). If these products are available to us, and if they are manufactured to be consistent and safe, then they represent an additional valuable tool in the trainers sometimes limited inventory.

This is why we decided to choose Advocare as our fitness and supplement line. The products are manufactured in facilities dedicated to the product to prevent cross contamination, and ensure the nutritional content is what is promised. Additionally they have more than 20 years of research with leading international PhD’s and Nutritionists designed to safely and effectively provide product that will assist us in reaching our best level of health and fitness.
