LEGS, CORE, UPPER BODY
We focus on core stabilizing exercises and maintaining good form. Various types of lunges, planks, and pushing and pulling moves are part of every class. All exercises are designed to work multiple muscles simultaneously.
LONG SETS, QUICK TRANSITIONS
Each exercise is performed for 1-4 minutes at full intensity. Transitions are kept to a minimum to keep the muscles working and the heart rate elevated.
Some people liken it to a highly refined Pilates reformer; others think it's more like a medieval torture device. There's a moving carriage, stationary platforms, handles, variable spring loads, and nearly an infinite number of possible exercises.
Groups of up to ten clients are led through a sequence of moves. The instructor helps everyone maintain correct form and adjusts individual difficulty levels.
All exercises are performed until your muscles are fully fatigued. Then you keep going a little longer! Staying out of your comfort zone is the only real path to improvement.
We avoid isolation exercises. This increases workout efficiency, boosts heart rate, and stimulates balance and coordination.
SLOW AND CONTROLLED
By avoiding momentum, the potential for injury is minimized while slow-twitch, fat-burning muscle fibers are maximally recruited.
This wakes up muscles that have become accustomed to traditional methods. Maintaining tension throughout the entire range of motion also makes it so the joints never bear a full load. When a muscle is resting, the joints are most prone to injury.
No matter how fit you become, our classes will never get easy. Variable spring resistance and a repertoire of increasingly challenging variations ensure you never plateau. Multi-year veterans of our studio still get sore every time.
We think our classes will get you in shape better, faster, and more safely than any other workout.
TONING, LENGTHENING, AND WEIGHT LOSS
You will burn fat, build endurance, and tone and lengthen your muscles. Our workouts are designed to maximize EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption), which helps you burn fat for many hours after class is over.
The Lagree Method™ engages stabilizing muscles as well as muscles that are hard to target with standard exercise routines. Balanced strength in opposing muscle groups helps reduce back pain, joint pain, and can eliminate nagging overuse injuries. Several clients have reported that they are now able to run pain-free for the first time in years.
Our clients range from cross-training elite athletes to weekend warriors. Cyclists, runners, climbers, hikers, skiers, and dancers all attend our classes to improve their game.
Each move requires laser concentration, so your mind has no time to wander. This produces a meditative experience that leaves you refreshed and rejuvenated
