What Is Lagree Fitness?

…That’s usually the first line someone says when the person across from them asks:

“Have you ever taken a Lagree fitness class?”

Allow us to introduce you.

Lagree fitness is a method founded by Sebastien Lagree that combines fitness with endless evolution. It’s a method that will continue evolving through the years and guess what? We’re. Here. For. It.

Not to be mistaken with traditional Pilates, Lagree fitness takes place on a revolutionary machine known as “The Megaformer”.

This machine continues to advance and evolve each year to bring you more intense, well-designed, low-impact workouts. Many of the movements on the Megaformer are ones that you’ve seen before - lunges, squats, planks, etc. But Lagree uses their own fun, unique language to take these “basic” movements and make them their own.

If you’ve taken a Lagree class you may be familiar with terms such as “Bear (killer move), Escalator lunge (cue the shakes), and wheelbarrow (holy abs) which are “basic” exercises advanced by Lagree fitness. All movements in class are designed to go at a slow pace to focus on “time under tension” which targets your slow-twitch muscle fibers. You’ll place intense focus on your muscles while keeping your joints safe in this low-impact workout that allows you to really develop a mind-body connection like no other.

Our studio is San Francisco with the Lagree fitness Megaformers.

“Is this workout good for beginners?”

Yes. This workout is for everyone. Fitness begins with your core and we’re here to strengthen it and help you progress no matter what level you’re at.

Let’s dive in a bit: One of the most important fundamentals in any fitness program is developing proper core strength. It’s the heartbeat of any workout and also the component that many of us are lacking - until now. When core strength isn’t utilized, the body will overcompensate in other areas to complete the movement and in doing so, may cause injury. Built on science, Lagree uses its revolutionary design to increase tension via spring-load, and let’s just say your core exercises will never be the same once you’ve experienced a plank hold using spring tension. The exercises you’ll experience in class activate your deep intrinsic core stabilizing muscles and allows your core to begin to develop from the inside out! If there’s one thing to know in the fitness world, it’s that stabilization is the first step in any successful program. One of the first major improvements clients notice when adding Lagree fitness into their routine is increased core control and strength which positively fuels all of your other exercises to keep you progressing and getting noticeably stronger class after class.

Aside from the killer core strength you’ll start developing, you’ll see improvements in form and posture.

This is all thanks to the slow pace practiced throughout class. This slowed-down tempo allows you to really connect to the muscles that are being activated and in this time you’ll learn how to increase the burn with simple adjustments that go a long way. Get ready to stand taller, feel more confident, and experience true strength from the inside out.
