I was game when my friend Carolyn (an instructor at CoreLab) suggested the Lagree Fitness Workout which is performed on a Megaformer.
This workout is a modified version of Pilates which fatigues your muscles, but is still low impact. It helps to build your core and has a West Coast vibe.
I’ve been loving my body’s response. I used to gravitate toward high intensity workouts like extreme boot camp and kick boxing. When I started mixing in lower impact workouts like the Megaformer, I wasn’t dripping with sweat and totally worn out at the end of each workout, but I started seeing more muscle definition and I FELT stronger and more focused throughout the day.
Now, I alternate this kind of low impact workout with my higher intensity cardio workouts (spinning/running) and aim for about two Megaformer or Pilates-type workouts per week.
If you want results, my motto is surprise your body and keep mixing it up to get the best results!
