Today, GoodLife Fitness added Les Mills virtual content to the list of On-Demand features available on the app and website, to complement the popular and well-established Les Mills classes that are available live in the 200+ GoodLife Clubs across Canada.
GoodLife is the only gym in Canada that offers live Les Mills classes like BODYPUMP, BODYATTACK, BODYCOMBAT, SH’BAM and BODYBALANCE led by some of Canada’s best Les Mills-certified group fitness instructors. GoodLife members attend hundreds of thousands of Les Mills classes across Canada each year.
“GoodLife has proudly offered Les Mills classes in our clubs for decades.

This is another step to deliver the best, most engaging live and digital experiences that will keep people moving, wherever they are.”
The GoodLife Fitness app features 15-, 30-, 45- and 55-minute Les Mills classes taught by top Les Mills instructors like Rachael Newsham, Glen Ostergaard and Diana Archer Mills.
