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.
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.
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.
