If you were in attendance at YYCfit 2017, then hopefully you had a chance to try out the Megaformer, at the Lagree YYC booth – if not, make sure to give it a try at this year’s expo. Lagree YYC’s Megaformer is a moving platform manipulated through a system of springs, straps and pulleys, employing body weight to provide resistance. Lagree YYC owner Kim Rothenberg was a certified personal trainer with a lifelong passion for fitness when she visited New York City in 2014 on a hunt for a new, leading-edge workout to bring to Calgary. As Kim describes, “I walked into my first Lagree workout in NYC confident that I was fit……….and I was quickly humbled! The Lagree Method used muscles in my body that I did not know existed, hitting me in a way that no other workout or piece of equipment ever had or could.” Kim opened the doors to Lagree YYC in February 2015, immediately attracting a diverse clientele from athletes to the formerly fitness phobic.
The Lagree Method is the best core-strengthening, calorie-burning workout designed for full body conditioning available in Calgary. Using the patented Megaformer, all of your movements are slow and controlled encouraging maximum exertion in a low impact workout, allowing individuals to stay in tune with their bodies at all times, thus reducing the risk of injury. The Lagree Method strengthens the body, tones and lengthens muscles, improves endurance, jump-starts the metabolism, burns fat, increases flexibility, improves posture, and restores the body’s natural balance.
Now with two studio locations in Calgary (Brittania and Signal Hill) and a combined total of 100+ weekly classes, ranging from Introductory to Xtreme, Kim feels blessed to be able to do what she loves on a daily basis……….helping people get or stay strong and healthy through such a meaningful workout!
