Les Mills supports employee wellbeing with the launch of Les Mills Content Web Player

Les Mills, the world leader in group fitness, is expanding its workplace wellbeing offering with the launch of Les Mills Content Web Player: an onsite self-service product designed to make health and wellbeing services easily accessible at work.

Following the last turbulent 18 months, the morale, health and wellbeing of workforces has never been more important for businesses. This sentiment is echoed by a recent survey, from McKinsey, that revealed 91% of employees believed their employers should care about their health and 85% said that behavioural health benefits were important when evaluating a new job.

Drawing upon its 50 years’ experience, Les Mills has been working in consultation with corporate organisations and HR professionals to launch this new service. Delivered via a web browser, the LES MILLS Content Web Player can be accessed on laptops, tablets and mobile phones. Eminently portable around the workplace, it can be accessed anywhere in the building in a range of workplace active spaces such as meeting rooms, breakout spaces, communal areas or a studio space.

The web player’s On Demand playback option enables employees to reset, recharge and find balance at work, with access to 100+ workout videos, including a brand new range of life-enhancing yoga, stretch, breathing, mindfulness and meditation sessions. The inclusion of this wellness-focused content is a timely addition to the web player launch, enabling a flexible wellbeing programme that caters to all sections of the workforce.

In a recent survey, 77% of LES MILLS Content fitness users said improving their fitness was a key reason to exercise and the mental health benefits brought by exercise were deemed equally important. The survey found that mental health and stress relief were both leading reasons why users were using the platform, underlining the role of LES MILLS Content in supporting workplace wellness.

“With health now the world’s number one priority, there’s greater focus on every element of people’s wellbeing as companies begin to think about what their future work set-up will look like,” says Richard Sale, Global Business Development Director for Les Mills. “Our offering brings virtual fitness to life and is scientifically-designed to help keep workforces healthy. The beauty of our new web player service is that our partners can take full advantage of our programmes wherever they are within the workplace and will be key to supporting employees in the future as they return to the office.”

This new service is delivered in partnership with global digital health and wellbeing technologists, OliveX Holdings Pty Ltd. Using its fully integrated, user-friendly Volution technology business software, OliveX’s platform, delivered through its Volution technology business, provides a hosting service for pre-recorded and on-demand fitness – bringing flexible wellness solutions to users everywhere including workplaces, gyms and homes. The platform will be licenced by Les Mills to provide fitness content to United Kingdom-based businesses for employee fitness programmes and initiatives.

The LES MILLS Content Web Player is the latest addition to the comprehensive mix of Les Mills world-class digital and physical fitness solutions for employers to extend to their employees including virtual fitness classes, a suite of holistic content including wellness, stretch and breathing sessions with Les Mills On Demand (LMOD) and Live classes.
