Pilates Plus Baton Rouge

Lagree Fitness, GRIND, CLIMB, Yoga By incorporating the key principles of core stability and blending them with the fusion of muscle dynamics, Sebastien Lagree has created "the next evolution in physical fitness".

SPX, simply put, is the most innovative and aggressive approach to full body conditioning. Moving effectively out of the borders of conditioned stimulus, this workout integrates the key elements of resistance and counter-resistance in a sequence that allows for periods of zero gravity at peak muscle contraction. The composition of this method is significant in that it encourages maximum exertion while allowing for low risk of injury. The Megaformer Black™ workout strengthens the body and tones the muscles, improves endurance, jump-starts the metabolism, burns fat, increases flexibility and postural alignment, and restores the body's natural balance. The client, at conclusion, is left with a lithe and powerful body, resistant to the everyday stresses of work and life.
