The ultimate gift for the Pilates Addict! Higher Terrain Aspen specializes in the best high intensity, low impact workouts on the Megaformer, or Pilates Reformer for any level. 

What is the Lagree Method?

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 Megaformer™ classes utilize this science to deliver the best workout for long, lean muscle development, and deep muscle strength.


What is the difference between our pilates and Lagree classes?

Our Lagree Method class is performed on a Megaformer, and is a perfect fit for clients who love Pilates, but wish it was a more challenging workout. A Lagree workout is a high-intensity, full body workout, many of the exercises are performed standing on the Megaformer, and utilize multiple muscle groups within one exercise. Expect to shake, and work hard in a Lagree class!

Our Pilates Reformer | Classic class is a low impact, full body workout that uses deliberate, controlled movements to target core, and postural muscles. This class focuses on smaller muscles, and breathe to provide a workout that will sculpt, and tone, as well as improve flexibility.

What can I expect from my first class?

If this is your first class at Higher Terrain Fitness, please arrive 5 minutes before the class start time to get checked in, and allow the instructor to walk you through the use of your machine. Signing up for your first class requires a valid credit card on file. If you don’t have a credit card on file, your booking may be canceled.

Love traditional Pilates?

Love traditional Pilates Reformer? Book a Pilates Reformer | Classic class for a low impact workout that will strengthen, align, and define the body. Our signature, full body, Pilates Reformer class will define your core, sculpt your muscles, and improve posture, and flexibility.

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
