Spectrum Athletic Clubs Launch Les Mills Workouts Sept. 27

International Fitness Craze Expected to Sweep So Cal

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 27, 2011) - The international fitness craze sparked by Olympian Les Mills has found a home at Spectrum Athletic Clubs, luxury fitness facilities with 12 locations throughout the greater Los Angeles and Santa Barbara areas. Taught by specially trained and certified fitness instructors, the premier health clubs will roll out two world-leading group exercise classes, Les Mills BODYPUMP® and CXWORX.

Les Mills BODYPUMP® is the original barbell class proven to sculpt the entire body. The formula of intense weight repetitions and cardio is scientifically proven to build long, lean and shapely bodies without the bulk.

Les Mills CXWORX™, a 30-minute workout designed to strengthen and tone, is the newest addition to the Les Mills stable. With core training deemed as one of the hottest fitness trends in 2011, CXWORX™ improves torso and sling muscles that connect the upper and lower body -- ideal for tightening the stomach region.

The ten LES MILLS® group exercise programs are enjoyed each week by millions of people in 80 countries. They are taught by 90,000 certified instructors in more than 14,000 licensed clubs around the world. From its base in Auckland, New Zealand, Les Mills renews each exercise-to-music program every three months with new choreography, licensed music and instructor education. See for more information.

Les Mills West Coast CEO Steven Renata says, "Spectrum is one of the premier clubs in Southern California and we are excited to partner with a club that has strong values and offers programs that can change people's lives through fitness. It's fantastic to partner with Spectrum in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara."
