International fitness guru Sebastien Lagree has developed his own version of the traditional Pilates reformer called The Megaformer™, and it’s now available at Pilates Plus La Jolla. This newly enhanced reformer empowers Lagree Fitness to create the perfect body.
Lagree Fitness attacks excess bulk in the hips and thighs and tightens the body’s core muscles for abs of steel. The intense 40-minute training sessions, which combine Pilates with strength training, achieve visible muscle definition significantly faster than Pilates or any other kind of Pilates-based workout.
Lagree Fitness is based on the fact that people don’t need more exercise time to get fit, 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 results in a much stronger post-exercise reaction (also called Post Cardio Effect). After a Lagree Fitness class, you will continue to burn calories much faster for several hours.
Former advocates of hard-core yoga (like the Ashtanga style Madonna swears by) have achieved a lithe, toned body significantly faster with this unique circuit-training program. Even someone who consistently puts in time at the gym each week can achieve the same – if not better – results in half the time. One of the keys to Lagree Fitness is pushing the body to muscle failure. As the term implies, Lagrees’ workout isolates specific muscles until they can no longer move. Ironically, muscle failure is the only proven path to successfully achieving muscle definition.
