group strength training san jose megaformer

Core MOcean exclusively features the Megaformer and Lagree Fitness in its San Jose and Los Gatos studios. By now, you have probably heard of LAGREE FITNESS, one of the fastest growing and hottest workouts sweeping the nation.  Founded by fitness guru Sebastien Lagree, The Lagree Fitness Method uses the state-of-the-art Megaformer to create a workout that takes the strength-based foundation of pilates and mixes in intense muscle endurance and cardio training. The end result is a heart-pumping, muscle aching, total body workout.

Here, Lisa Hirsch of The Studio MDR in Marina Del Rey / Venice Beach shares 10 reasons to try the Megaformer for an intense, muscle-quivering, shirt-drenching workout.

  1. One mega machine works multiple muscles at a time -- including those tiny ones you never knew existed! The result? A total body workout that really does give you the body of your wildest dreams. 
  2. You work out as a group rather than one-on-one, making the class way more fun. Plus, you'll get to know your Megaformer mates and become friends with them in no time. And trust us -- a room-full of Megaformer devotees will seriously hold you accountable!
  3. The number of exercises the teachers offer are endless - you feel like you never repeat the same class!
  4. You'll strengthen, lengthen, and tone in ways you never thought possible. 
  5. Each exercise has very low impact on the joints. Translation: If done the right way, it is downright impossible to plateau doing The Lagree Method!
  6. This workout will spike your heart rate, so you target muscles like you would if you were weight training AND you get a kick-butt cardio workout
  7. Classes are choreographed so that you transition from one exercise to the next, making it a fluid workout that keeps your heart rate up and prevents that inevitable boredom
  8. This workout sculpts the body without adding bulk. So you get those pretty, long, lean muscles that every woman will envy when you wear a tank top or that little black dress. 
  9. All of the exercises can be modified to fit your current fitness level, so nobody is too "beginner" or too "advanced" for a class. So there is NO excuse…get your tush to class!
  10. After finishing a class, you feel like you can do anything that's why we all Look It*Feel It*Live It every "other" day on the Megaformer!  : )
