Lagree Fitness is a new and innovative workout specifically designed to strengthen, tighten, and tone the body quickly and safely. This workout is largely based on the holistic principles of Pilates but also emphasizes the strength training and cardio elements not inherent to Pilates to achieve muscle definition faster than traditional Pilates and/or weight training alone. All in just 50 minutes!
By incorporating the key principles of core stability and blending them with the fusion of muscle dynamics, Sebastien Lagree has created "the next evolution in physical fitness". Lagree Fitness, simply put, is the most innovative and aggressive approach to full body conditioning. Moving effectively out of the borders of conditioned stimulus, this workout integrates the key elements of resistance and counter-resistance in a sequence that allows for periods of zero gravity at peak muscle contraction. The composition of this method is significant in that it encourages maximum exertion while allowing for low risk of injury. This sequence also promotes flexibility and elasticity. The client, at conclusion, is left with a lithe and powerful body, resistant to the everyday stresses of work and life.
This 50 minute High-Octane Shirt-Drenching workout will improve both strength and endurance, and jump-starts your metabolism. It's time efficient, burns fat, strengthens the body, tightens your muscle, as well as increase your postural alignment, elongate your muscles, and restore your body's natural balance. In addition, this quick and effective workout allows you to stay focused and get the most out of every minute. Our bodies are responsive to exercise on a continuum, not on a time-based threshold. An effective workout can be had in any amount of time, given how you manipulate the variables of the workout. People don't need more time, they just need more intensity. The body responds more to intensity than it does to the duration of a workout. A more intense workout burns more calories per minute, and will result in a much stronger post-exercise reaction (also called Post Cardio Effect.) That's right, after a Lagree Fitness class, your will continue to burn calories at a rate of a third more calories than during the workout-and this goes on for hours!! Since the birth of Pilates by Joseph Pilates nearly 100 years ago, Sebastian Lagree has evolved it into the preferred workout of the 21st Century. Celebrities such as Rebecca Romijn, Nicole Kidman, Ben Stiller, Marcia Cross, Ali Larter, Britney Spears, Hayden Panettiere and many more are advocates of Sebastian’s Systeme Dynamique. Our Pilates system has been recognized by various institutions including Pilates Style Magazine, Fitness Magazine, In Style Magazine, Self Magazine, E Entertainment, Access Hollywood, Regis and Kelly, and due this fall for an upcoming feature on Oprah.
