Lets face it, the new Les Mills/Reebok clothing for BodyCombat isn’t the best of lookers, and going by social sites the quality of the build has been disappointing.  I find it funny that during the masterclass filming the trainers are all Reebok’d out and front row participants are there because they are wearing this brand too.  What’s the point?  It’s a master class that only instructors are going to see.  You really think I am going to buy a top/trainers because 2 people on a stage are wearing them? The answer is no , and I’m not the only one…..

Les Mills we really don’t care what the presenters wear on stage and if you’re listening Les Mills what we do care about is the price of releases and workshops as it would seems it’s a country lottery and the UK is the highest (post coming soon)….

    I’m glad somebody is saying something about that. I don’t claim to understand the financials of LM, and I’m sure there’s some pretty good endorsement money coming their way. I’ve shied away from ordering the LM-branded gear because it’s fairly pricey. Other instructors who are into the gear say it sells out quickly (at least in the US). As long as there’s no requirement for me to shill Reebok during my classes or sell their new protein powder, I can deal with their in-product ads.

        The DVDs have Reebok ads in addition to Les Mills products such as the Smart Bar and the new “food” vertical they’re trying to break into. During the masterclass filming, it seems like at least twice the program coaches have to shill for Reebok — “Oh, don’t we look stylish with our new Reebok workout pants or cycling jerseys.” I understand why that happens; I just roll my eyes and focus on the important thing — the workout.

          Really? Am sure will come to UK soon. Will feel like watching a video on youtube? We seem to be on the end of all the bad experiences lol. The amount of instructors getting in touch about how they’ve been treated or spoken to and asking if I have a NZ contact as they don’t have any trust is outstanding. Is a shame that the brand is going down an annoying path. It’s like they forget we’re instructors…
