Our Full Body 45 Group Class is a fusion of Reformer Pilates, cardio & strength training that achieves muscle definition faster than traditional Pilates &/or weight training alone.
The workout builds long, lean sexy muscles and is designed to cradle your joint & connective tissue while pushing your muscles to their brink! The composition of this method is significant in that it encourages maximum exertion & is one of the safest ways to strengthenyour muscles while reducing stress on the joints.
Simply put, this is the most innovative & aggressive approach to full body conditioning.
Each student works out on our state of the art M3™ megaformer machine, an advanced & redesigned twist on the traditional Reformer. Formed in a small class setting, students benefit from the energy of a group class with the personal attention of a private training session.
You can’t replicate this workout anywhere because our certified instructors guide you with key instruction on the M3™ machines. Your body seamlessly moves between each exercise, keeping your heart rate up, without the wear & tear on your joints & connective tissue like other popular high intensity workouts. It is through this seamless transition that your body is able to achieve a cardiovascular workout without needing to wear a heavy duty sports bra! You will be amazed at the burn you feel while barely moving about!
This will quickly become the most addictive 45 minutes of your day!
It’s very important to understand that Lagree Fitness is not Pilates; it is a Reformer Pilates-inspired strength, cardio & core training program. Lagree Fitness effectively combines the sculpting & toning benefits of strength training with the healing, therapeutic qualities of Pilates into a high intensity, low impact 45-minute workout.
In order to achieve the same calorie burn and full body conditioning, you would have to spend at least 30 minutes on the treadmill and then and additional hour working a circuit of machines at the gym. This melds those two aspects together while simultaneously stretching and lengthening your body. You will build long lean muscles and strong healthy joints as the tiny intrinsic muscle fibres are activated!
The key element is that each exercise must be performed with slow & controlled movements, in perfect form with resistance heavy enough to keep constant tension on the muscle. Constant tension on the targeted muscle allows total failure in just one to two minutes. It is at this total muscle failure point, which your muscle fibres send out signals that stimulate growth, increase strength, & improve metabolic functioning. Each slow & controlled exercise will help your body gain balance & increase coordination while also engaging multiple muscles giving your body the opportunity to burn more calories & lose inches faster.
All muscle groups, from big to small, are strengthened in a non-aggressive, non-impact manner making this workout as good for your muscles as it is for your joints. Your spine stays protected, your mind engaged, & your body pushed to its limits. Under the guidance of your certified instructor, it’s one of the safest ways to strengthen your muscles while reducing stress on the joints & connective tissue.

M3™ MEGAFORMER MACHINE
At the core of our Studio 45 Fitness classes is the M3™ megaformer machine which represents a significant evolution of the traditional Pilates Reformer. The state of the art M3™ isolates & attacks specific muscles until they can no longer move. This is actually how toned, defined muscles are built.
The M3™ megaformer leverages a system of springs & pulleys in a sequence that allows for periods of zero gravity at peak muscle contraction. Also, the M3’s™ megaformer resistance & counter-resistance enables you to move slowly & smoothly to avoid forceful or explosive movements that can cause injury on your muscles & joints, as well as avoid building bulky muscles.
The only proven path to successfully achieve muscle definition is to target muscle failure. M3™ provides constant resistance & infinitely more exercise options than a traditional Reformer. With over 300 exercises, M3™ the allows the body to shift quickly & smoothly from one exercise to another to maintain increased heart rate & get the blood pumping, achieving an intense but low impact cardiovascular workout.
Widely used by celebrities & top athletes, the M3™ megaformer will help you burn between 500-700 calories per 45-minute class.
Studio 45 Fitness believes that people don’t need more exercise time to get fit, they just need more intensity. A more intense workout burns more calories per minute, & results in a much stronger post-exercise reaction, also called Post Cardio Effect.
After a Full Body 45 workout on the M3, you will continue to burn calories for several hours after you leave!
