What is the

Lagree Method?


  • High intensity
  • Low impact
  • Full body

The Lagree Method is a high intensity, low impact, full-body workout performed on a uniquely effective, spring-loaded, momentum free machine called the Megaformer. The basic design of the Megaformer was inspired by the Pilates Reformer but features a few more bells and whistles, allowing for a much more intense workout than a traditional Pilates class.

The Lagree Method combines strength, cardio, flexibility, and balance into one of the most efficient, and low impact workouts in the fitness industry. Higher Terrain is a licensed Lagree Method studio and is the only studio in Aspen, Colorado offering the Megaformer workout.

What is the Megaformer workout?

The science behind the Lagree Method is constant tension. The Megaformer uses both resistance and counter resistant to maintain constant tension on muscles during each exercise. Designed by Sebastien Lagree, each exercise is performed for 1-2 minutes at a slow, laser focused pace. The combination of slow pace, and long duration target slow twitch muscle fibers, also known as endurance muscle fibers, allows for a uniquely efficient, intense workout, that is low impact on joints. Our 45 minute Megaformer classes utilize this science to deliver the best workout for long, lean muscle development, and deep muscle strength.

I have tried 3 different classes at Ritual - Hot Pilates, Sculpt and Megaformer. Each class was a great workout, I... especially enjoyed Sculpt because I like high intensity. The Megaformer was also great because I had never tried a full body machine workout which was low impact but still challenging. I liked the Hot Pilates because it was a great way to warm up and sweat during a cold day. All the instructors were friendly and accommodating. I will be back for more!!read more
