Balancing Act: Lagree and the Modern Professional

By Danielle Rosario

In the hustle and bustle of life, juggling exercise on top of life’s responsibilities can be a tall order. Trying to do it all can leave you feeling burnt out. Finding that work-life balance, fitness included, is an ongoing journey that’s extremely important for your quality of life. 

Let’s be honest, though—it’s certainly not always easy. But it is doable. Balancing fitness on top of your work and personal life is achievable when you find an efficient workout. Say hello to Lagree. 

Unveiling the Modern Professionals’ Struggle

The thought of adding fitness to your already jam-packed schedule might overwhelm you. When it comes to a gym-life balance, time management is a key factor. The reality is that some of us are better at managing our time. But if you want to optimize your time and live life to its fullest, you’ll want to strive to conquer time management continuously. 

How many times have you heard a friend say, “I don’t have time”? How many times have you used this phrase yourself as an excuse to not do something? 

Here’s the thing—we’re all busy. I’m sure you can relate to feeling like you have a never-ending to-do list. The other factor here comes down to prioritizing. It’s up to you to make fitness a priority in your life. Treat it as a non-negotiable. Just as you need to eat and sleep, you need to exercise. 

So, how do you stay committed to prioritizing fitness when work seems to take up all of your energy? There’s not a one-size-fits-all approach, but for many working professionals, waking up earlier to get a workout in before work is the solution. You’ll feel more energized post-workout than you would if you stayed in bed and pressed the snooze button for an hour. 

Plus, for those of you who spend most of your workday sitting in front of a computer, this is all the more reason to stay active outside the office. You’ll increase your overall well-being while decreasing your risk of potential health concerns that come with the sedentary nature of many professions.

Breaking Free from Convention: Lagree's Revolutionary Approach to Fitness

Once upon a time, many may have thought that a gym-life balance included spending hours on end every day at the gym. We all know this isn’t sustainable, nor is it necessary. Enter Lagree—a revolutionary fitness method that doesn’t require too much of your time. We’re talking about 3-4 hours a week. How’s that for good news?!

This innovative approach to fitness combines elements of Pilates, cardio, and strength training to bring you a comprehensive full-body workout. What makes Lagree unique is its focus on time under tension using slow, controlled movements performed on the Megaformer machine. The beauty of it is that it’s a low-impact workout that still delivers high-intensity training. This approach not only builds muscular strength but also improves endurance. 

Lagree's Adaptive Approach to People’s Fitness Journeys

As mentioned earlier, one size does not fit all in the fitness world. Lagree recognizes the individuality of each person's fitness journey and allows one to tailor the method accordingly. 

Whether you're new to fitness or a professional athlete, Lagree offers modifications and progressions so everyone benefits from its transformative effects. This adaptability makes Lagree an ideal choice for anyone—as long as you come to class with a pair of grippy socks. 

Not only is Lagree fit for people of various fitness levels, but it doesn’t require hours of your time every single day. You get an extremely effective full-body workout in under an hour. All you need is to schedule a session three times a week if you want to reap the benefits.

How to Balance Fitness and Life: Fitting Lagree into Any Schedule

Figuring out how to balance fitness and life isn’t such an impossible task when you find the right workout. 

One of the biggest obstacles to maintaining a consistent fitness routine is the belief in scarcity of time. That’s why Lagree offers a solution that vibes with the chaotic schedules of modern professionals. With classes typically lasting 40 minutes, Lagree is designed for optimal efficiency, delivering results in a reasonable amount of time. 

This time-conscious approach allows working professionals to integrate exercise into their routines seamlessly. Thanks to Lagree, striking a balance between work-life and fitness has never seemed so achievable. 

Overcoming Challenges and Setting Goals

Life is about experiencing and growing. As the seasons change, the pace of your life also changes. And some seasons are more challenging than others. Even day-to-day, you’ll find that balancing fitness and life isn’t equally attainable. Life is bound to throw you some curveballs, so some days will require extra effort. How do you overcome obstacles and hurdles that come across your path? 

Remember the 3 C’s: Commitment, Consistency, and Confidence. 

Set specific, realistic goals and stay committed to reaching them. Committing to something makes you more likely to do it—even when you don’t feel like it. Sign up for a Lagree class in advance to hold yourself accountable for your commitment to fitness. 

Success doesn’t occur without consistency. Find class times that work best with your schedule and attend them every week. This doesn’t mean you can’t take vacations or a rest day when needed. Just make Lagree a good habit that you consistently nurture. 

If injuries or illnesses interrupt your journey, find other ways than fitness to practice self-care, and then get back on the Megaformer as soon as it’s safe. 

Last but not least, don’t lose your sense of confidence, even when the going gets rough. Be confident in your ability to reach your goals and grow stronger physically and mentally. 

How Lagree Can Help You Unleash Your Inner Strength

Lagree isn’t just a workout. Focusing on the mind-body connection helps you develop resilience and confidence. As we just mentioned, a sense of confidence is vital for reaching goals and overcoming challenges. 

The method's signature time-under-tension (TUT) technique, utilizing slow and controlled movements, encourages you to be present during your workout. Lagree helps you focus on the journey to achieving your goals, rather than rushing toward the prize at the final destination. The unrushed pace of Lagree is a nice offset to the race we call life. 

The slow, steady nature of the method also helps you build patience and perseverance. These are a couple of ingredients for success in both your fitness and professional endeavors.

As you navigate through the demands of life, from your career to personal duties, the mental fortitude developed through Lagree acts as a valuable asset. The ability to push through physical challenges in your workout translates into a greater capacity to overcome professional obstacles. This is the mind-body connection at play in fusing physical and mental strength. 


In a fast-paced world, finding a fitness routine that complements rather than competes with your lifestyle is crucial. Lagree offers a solution that helps you stay fit and healthy not only physically but also mentally.

As a hard-working professional, be careful not to let self-care take a back seat. Juggling your career ambitions, personal commitments, and pursuit of a healthy lifestyle is a constant balancing act. So, step onto the Megaformer, embrace the Lagree methodology, and discover the empowering effects that have the potential to transform your fitness and work-life balance. Sign up for your first class!
