LMQ is designed to recognise and reflect the ability of an instructor through an objective grading system, and provide a personalised development plan based on their strengths to support continuous improvement. This grading system has been developed to mirror the recognition shown to other performance disciplines

– such as learning to play the violin or martial arts – where grades and belts are indicative of individual skill. Les Mills Qualifications recognise that group fitness instructing is an art. As leaders in the education and training of group fitness professionals, this is the next step in the Les Mills gold standard of development and recognition.
