Lagree as a Community: Connecting Through Fitness

By Danielle Rosario

In the ever-evolving fitness world, Lagree has emerged as more than just a workout regimen —  it's become a flourishing fitness community. With its unparalleled approach to fitness, Lagree has gained popularity for its effectiveness in sculpting lean, strong bodies and for its ability to foster a sense of connection. Just like the workout itself, the Lagree community is FIRE 🔥!

The Rise of Lagree Fitness

Lagree fitness has gained immense popularity in recent years. This workout method, founded by Sebastien Lagree, combines elements of Pilates, strength training, cardio, and more — to create an intense full-body workout. What sets Lagree apart is its use of the Megaformer, a machine that features adjustable spring resistance and moving platforms. The Lagree method delivers a killer low-impact, high-intensity workout that targets multiple muscle groups simultaneously.

The popularity of Lagree has surged for several reasons. First and foremost, it delivers remarkable results. Lagree helps you build lean muscle, improve core strength, enhance flexibility, increase endurance, and practice the mind-body connection. The transformative effects of the workout are unrivaled. 

Secondly, the Lagree workout can be tailored to all fitness levels, making it accessible to a wide range of individuals —  from beginners to seasoned fitness fanatics. The Megaformer allows for modifications in resistance and intensity, ensuring that everyone can challenge themselves at their own pace. This has factored into Lagree’s ability to build an all-inclusive workout community.

Lastly, the Lagree community has contributed significantly to its growth. This workout regimen emphasizes a sense of camaraderie that varies from that of an ordinary gym community. Lagree members share a unique passion and provide a supportive environment that extends beyond the physical fitness aspect.

The Community Building Nature of Lagree

One of the favorable features of the Lagree workout is how it creates a strong sense of a fitness community among its participants. When you step into a Lagree studio, you're not just entering a gym —  you're joining the Lagree community. 

Here are a few ways in which Lagree creates a special community bond:

Small Class Sizes

Lagree studios typically keep class sizes small to maintain a sense of intimacy.  Instructors can provide more one-on-one attention and ensure that you perform exercises with proper form and technique. Small class sizes also make it easier for individuals to connect. You don’t have to worry about the uneasiness of working out in an overcrowded gym when you take a class at a Lagree studio. 

Supportive Instructors

Lagree instructors play a crucial role in cultivating a Lagree community. They’re not just there to guide you through the exercises but also to motivate and inspire you. Certified Lagree coaches promote a positive and supportive atmosphere, encouraging you to push your limits and achieve fitness goals together. When you’re in a class — get ready to channel the “we’re all in this together” mentality.

Regular Attendees

Lagree classes tend to attract a dedicated group known as the “regulars.” Most Lagree lovers become members of their local studio. Over time, you become familiar with the faces in the class, and this familiarity can lead to the development of friendships and a comforting feeling of belonging.

Belonging and Support

Being a part of the Lagree community means more than just attending classes —  it's about feeling a deeper sense of belonging and receiving support from fellow members. You’re not just part of a typical workout community, you’re part of a fabulous fitness community — at Lagree Fit 415, we’re a fitness family. 


When you join a Lagree class, you're not just accountable to yourself — you're also accountable to the people around you. This shared accountability helps motivate you to show up consistently and give your best effort. When others are involved, you’re more likely to push yourself harder.


The Lagree community is all about lifting each other up. Instructors and classmates provide words of encouragement and support —  helping you push through tough workouts and reach your fitness goals. And when we feel encouraged, we can’t help but enjoy ourselves and have more fun.


As you progress in your Lagree journey, you'll likely find yourself inspiring others in the community. Sharing your achievements, whether they're increased strength, better flexibility, or weight loss, empowers and motivates those around you to keep pushing forward. Plus, you can incorporate a healthy tad of friendly competition. 

Unlike a lot of other HIIT workouts, because of Lagree’s low-impact nature and ease of modifying any exercise, the Lagree community is very inclusive. It’s arguably one of the most diverse workout communities — with members ranging from gals in their late teens to men in their thirties to women in their sixties. We have fitness newbies and seasoned athletes— we don’t discriminate. All are welcome! Just come with a good attitude. 

Social and Psychological Benefits

The Lagree fitness community offers an array of social and psychological benefits in addition to the physical benefits of the workout. 

Some of the mental and emotional benefits of Lagree include: 

  • Stress reduction — Exercise is known to reduce stress and anxiety. The supportive and friendly environment of the Lagree community amplifies this effect, making it an excellent outlet for managing the stresses of daily life.
  • Enhanced motivation — The tight-knit workout community helps to keep motivation levels high. The presence of supportive instructors makes it easier to stay committed to your fitness routine, even when you might be tempted to skip a workout. On the days when it’s hard to get yourself to class, you can rest assured knowing you’ll feel better after your workout.‍
  • Increased confidence — Over time, as you achieve fitness milestones and witness your body transform, your self-confidence will likely be boosted. Being part of a supportive community that celebrates your achievements can reinforce your self-worth.‍
  • Sense of purpose — The Lagree community provides you with a sense of purpose beyond fitness. Knowing that you are part of a group that values your presence and supports your journey adds an extra dose of purposefulness to your life. 

An 85-year Harvard study links a longer life to positive relationships. And there have been many scientific studies done that also show that healthy fitness habits can extend your life span. That being said, it’s really a no-brainer that joining a fitness community will postively affect your life in the best possible way. 

Overcoming Challenges and Barriers

Participating in any fitness program comes with its own set of challenges and barriers. However, the Lagree community can be an invaluable resource in overcoming these obstacles. Let’s take a look at a few ways Lagree can support you in making it past hurdles. 

Time Management

One of the most common barriers to regular exercise is time constraints. How many times have you heard people use the excuse of not having enough time to work out? The truth is that we all have the same amount of given time in a day. Sure, some of us might have schedules that are more hectic than others. But with the support of a fitness community, you're more likely to prioritize your workouts and manage your time effectively.

And hey, if Lagree helps you master time management, you get the bonus of that positively impacting your life in all other aspects. 

Motivation Slumps

We all experience periods when our motivation wanes. That’s just nature and part of being human. We can’t avoid it, but we can find ways to help us when our motivation seems to have taken a leave of absence. One way is to take a Lagree class! The encouragement and positive energy of the Lagree community can help reignite your enthusiasm for working out.

Mental and Emotional Barriers

Fitness is not just about physical strength but also mental and emotional resilience. The Lagree community is a safe space where you can overcome mental and emotional barriers. Not only can you work on building your muscular endurance, but you can practice improving your psychological endurance as well. 


Lagree has evolved into more than just a workout program —  it's a thriving workout community. The Lagree community offers an exceptional support system, and the feeling that comes from creating a connection is awesome. 

Not only does this enhance the workout experience, but it also delivers a range of social and psychological benefits. The supportive environment helps you stay motivated and committed to your fitness goals. Take a Lagree class and keep your spirits high!
