AKA “ High Intensity Pilates” and “ Pilates on Steroids” the Lagree Method is actually quite different from Pilates. Pilates was created in the 1930’s 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 “ says Ritual’s owner Jennifer Metcalf who also owns Flex Pilates Aspen, a boutique private Pilates studio in Aspen, Colorado.
“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” “A traditional Pilates exercise is typically performed using very few repetitions, and tends to be very isolated. The Lagree Method exercises are performed for 1-2 minutes and utilize full body movements, targeting multiple muscle groups within one exercise.”
I’m exited to offer the Megaformer workout at Ritual to people who are looking for a challenge in their workout routine” says Jennifer who is also a personal trainer, and physical therapist. “The Megaformer workout is intense, but also low impact, anyone can do it!
