It’s all about you!
It is all about you, your inspiration and your development; and not the least, about your
motivation which will decide how you teach your classes week after week. If you have the
fire and the drive, then the temperature of your participants will increase. When they
feel your enthusiasm, they will return, again and again, and bring their friends.
They will return to your next class, not because they have to, but because they really
want to. They will once again be inspired by your energy and passion. The physical
workout will be an extra bonus.

When you perform each class 100% present and focused you are improving the lives of your participants.
You not only make your class into the best hour of the entire week, you help them to enjoy getting
stronger, more energized and to move more freely. You, together with 90,000 other instructors,
are influencing the world so that more and more people feel better, both physically and mentally.

For that reason, you need to refuel with energy and inspiration. To give of yourself, you need new impressions, new
skills and new motivation - a spark in your own development as an instructor. It is for this simple reason that we are
arranging SUPER SATURDAY for the fourth year, this year with more classes, more star presenters and more
happenings than ever before. 9 of Les Mills DVD-presenters will be coming to Stockholm so that you can experience
them live. Don’t miss listening to star lecturer, Sasha Coburn, when she talks about how you can develop as a person
and instructor.

It is all about you; it’s called SUPER SATURDAY and is being held at Eriksdalshallen in Stockholm on August 30!

See you there and turn it up!

 will be judged according to weight and form – i.e. the correct maintained
 form during the entire song for songs 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. The weight will be
 totalled following song 6. Judges will be on hand to control the form and to
 add up the points.

 Where: Register and collect your race tag directly when you arrive on
 Saturday morning. The competition will be held during the second
 BODYPUMP® class at 12.15 -13.15 o’clock. Further instructions will be
 given on site.

Hundreds of instructors who have completed AIM™ testify how the course
has changed how they look at themselves and their role as an instructor.

clarify what you need to do in order to develop. Charlotte Althin guides you
through the course and helps you to find your own, real and true answers.

Where: Friday August 29. Further information will be given on registration.
