How is Lagree Fitness Method different than Pilates on the reformer?
Although Lagree Fitness Method is inspired by Pilates, it is not the same as Pilates. The Lagree Method is based on principles of Pilates paired with cardiovascular elements to create a total body conditioning workout. In Lagree Fitness, exercises are performed slowly to deeply engage the working muscles, and quick transitions between each move are encouraged to maintain cardiovascular intensity. At sculpt50 you’ll get the benefits of strength training, cardio conditioning, and core strengthening all in one 50 minute class.
What should I expect at my first class?
For your first class, we ask that you arrive at least 10 minutes early for your instructor can give you an overview of the Megaformer and get you set up. If you aren't able to arrive 10 minutes early, your instructor may ask that you reschedule so he has the proper amount of time to get you ready. This is for your safety.
If you have any injuries or you were recently or are currently pregnant, please inform your instructor before the start of class.
Though our classes are intense, our instructor will offer modifications to make you feel successful yet still challenged. Class never gets easier but you will get better at it and get stronger with every class you attend!
What should I bring to class?
+ Grip socks are mandatory for safety and sanitary reasons. We have grip socks available at the studio for purchase or clean socks for rent, or you can bring your own athletic grip socks. For your safety, hospital or fluffy winter socks are not proper athletic grip socks and cannot be worn during class.

I am addicted to sculpt50 and this workout! How often should I work out?
We would love to see you daily, but we also believe in rest and recovery to get the most out of this workout. Our workouts are designed to work your muscles to fatigue, and your muscles can't change without proper rest. We recommend starting out at 2-3 times a week and working your way up to 3-4 times a week.
