OUR STORY

Laurie always had a passion for fitness and thirst for adventure. After spending her career in Corporate America as an accountant, she decided to pursue a lifelong dream of opening a studio of her own. A dear friend of hers introduced her to the Lagree method in California and immediately she was hooked. Battling constant knee pain and numerous surgeries she was on the hunt for a low impact workout that still brought intensity. Hello Lagree!! Laurie has brought this workout to Queens and her goal is to create a community of dedicated Lagree enthusiasts.

The Workout

Finally! Fitness guru and mastermind Sebastien Lagree’s method has been brought to Queens by Lagree NY. The Lagree Fitness Method is a high intensity, low impact workout performed on the evolutionary Megaformer. Lagree is the most innovative full body conditioning fitness model. It is intense on the muscles yet safe on the joints, spine and connective tissues. The movements performed are slow and controlled which activate the slow twitch muscle fibers (your fat burning muscles). All our instructors are Lagree certified and classes are taught on the latest Megaformer M3K+. The method focuses on five key elements to reach effective muscle stimulation: Tempo, Duration, Range of Motion, Resistance and Angle. Lagree effectively combines strength, cardio, endurance, balance, core and flexibility not only in one session but in each and every move. All fitness levels are welcome! Get ready to plank, lunge and sweat in our 50 minute class and finish with a nice stretch.

The Science

The Lagree Fitness Training Method™ is taught on an exclusive Megaformer, developed by fitness visionary, Sebastien Lagree. One of the main things to remember is it's not pilates, it's Lagree! Lagree Fitness™ meets all elements of physical fitness in each and every move. Physical fitness is made up of the following basic elements: Cardiorespitory Endurance, Muscular Strength, Muscular Endurance, Flexibility, Body Composition, Core Strength, and Balance.

Lagree Fitness™ is the only workout that effectively combines strength, endurance, cardio, balance, core, and flexibility training. The key term here is effective.


5 Key Elements to Reach Effective Muscle Stimulation:

 

Resistance

Lagree Fitness™ uses spring resistance, which is variable and allows for peak muscle contraction while reducing the stress on the joints and the connective tissue.

Range of Motion

Lagree Fitness™ focuses on form and each movement is kept within the range of motion that targets the specific muscle or group of muscles.

Angles

The Lagree Fitness™ equipment is adjustable to allow for training at different angles to help recruit different muscle groups.

Tempo

Lagree Fitness™ utilizes slow and controlled movements. When working with and against resistance slowly, the tension on muscles stays constant, recruiting more muscle fibers. Slow and controlled movements activate the slow-twitch fat-burning muscle fibers.

Duration

Each set is performed for at least 60 seconds to stimulate both the fast and slow-twitch muscle fibers.

Give LagreeNY 50 minutes and we promise you will meet all these essentials!
