IS THIS THE SAME AS PILATES?
Nope. It might seem like it at first, but the Lagree method is very different. The Megaformer machine offers a much more comprehensive workout that results in fast, transformative, and long-lasting results. Additionally, the Megaformer has double the amount of springs, thus allowing for maximum intensity for even the strongest participant. It allows for hundreds of exercise combinations to effectively target different muscle groups. The best part about this method is that it remains low impact, but can be high intensity where the heart rate increases substantially to burn more calories and fat.
WHAT IS A BASICS CLASS?
Our Basics Class is exactly what it sounds like! It teaches you the foundational exercises to get ready for the regular group classes. The instructor will introduce you to the MegaFormer and talk you through proper form and placement of each exercise.
If you have never taken a Lagree class before, we recommend taking at least 3 Basics classes before taking a regular class to understand basic form and technique. The pace is slower and more time is focused on talking through the movements.
However, if you're already a Lagree pro, we'll provide advance modifications so you can still get the most challenging workout possible!
DO I NEED TO TAKE A PRIVATE CLASS BEFORE MY FIRST TIME?
This is entirely up to your own comfort level. It is not required to start with a private lesson. Our certified instructors are trained to teach groups of classes where each individual's fitness level varies and they will be able to modify exercises to meet your individual needs.
If you are recovering from an injury, have chronic pain, a severe medical condition, or new to working out, then we recommend taking a private lesson so we can provide a personal assessment and adjust to your fitness level. Please be sure your doctor has given you permission before undertaking any physical activity. Just keep in mind that classes can be intense without periods of rest and recovery. If you do not feel comfortable working out in a group setting, then we recommend starting with a private lesson or a Basics Class.
WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE FOR MY FIRST CLASS?
Please arrive at least 10-15 minutes before the start of class. Your certified trainer will give you an overview of the Megaformer machine and the workout. We also require each new client to fill out a studio waiver. If you do not arrive within 5 minutes before class, you will be unable to attend class. We do this for your own personal safety.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TAKE CLASS?
The workout is designed to work your body to muscle fatigue, at which point you need to rest. Depending on your fitness level and the intensity of your workout, you will need more, or less, time to recover. We recommend 3-4 times a week to allow your body to properly recover and repair. Listen to your body, it’s up to you!
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO CLASS?
Grippy Socks. We require all students to wear grippy socks to prevent slipping (you will sweat!) and to preserve the quality of the machines. These are available for purchase at the studio. You may also purchase a pair online here, and they will be ready for pick up at the studio. Regular socks and shoes are not permitted on the machine.
Water. We will have a water machine to fill up your water bottle. Please do not bring glass bottles for safety reasons.
Towel. Hand towels will be provided.
Clothes. Wear something you feel comfortable in and can easily move in, similar to what you wear to the gym.
Jewelry. Please remove any jewelry as it can get caught on the machines.
- Your Smile and Positive Energy!
CAN I WORK OUT AT X-CORE IF I AM PREGNANT?
For clients who are pregnant and new to the workout, we do not advise starting classes. However, clients who have been regularly attending classes may continue working out with us as long as you have received approval from your doctor. Please contact us if you have any questions.
