Lagree Method | Pilates

AKA “High-Intensity Pilates” and “ Pilates on Steroids” the Lagree Method is actually quite different from Pilates. Pilates was created in the 1930s by Joseph Pilates and quickly became popular among dancers as a method of training and rehabilitation. Pilates and the Lagree Method are two completely different workouts and methods. Lagree is performed on a Megaformer™ designed by Sebastien Lagree, Pilates is performed on a Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, or other various pieces of Pilates equipment designed by the namesake of Pilates, Joseph Pilates. 

The Lagree Method is a perfect fit for clients who love the core focus, and low impact, lengthening effects of Pilates, but wish it was a more challenging workout. The Lagree Method exercises are performed for 1-2 minutes, utilize full-body movements, targets multiple muscle groups within one exercise, and focuses on muscle fatigue, targeting slow twitch muscle fibers to create a long, lean physique. 

Traditional Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates is a low impact, full body workout that uses deliberate, controlled movements to target core, and postural muscles. Pilates focuses on smaller muscles, and breathe to provide a workout that will sculpt, and tone, as well as improve flexibility. A traditional Pilates exercise is typically performed using fewer repetitions, isolates muscles groups and incorporates stretching in a core and postural based workout.

“I’m excited to offer the Lagree Method to people who are looking for a challenge in their workout routine” says studio owner and physical therapist Jen Metcalf. “The Megaformer workout is intense, but also low impact on joints.” 

“Both Pilates and Lagree are amazing, and low impact workouts that will strengthen your core, and tone your body. We’re so exited to be offering both at Higher Terrain! Our classes will fit any fitness level!”
