WHAT IS LAGREE FITNESS?
Simply put, it’s a combination of weight training and Pilates. Lagree Fitness utilizes the best of both. It combines the strengthening and toning benefits of weight training and the lengthening and postural enhancing benefits of Pilates in a circuit training sequence. It keeps the heart rate up and burns extra calories. The routines incorporate old school exercises such as push-ups and lunges; however, the support of the Megaformer eliminates the pressure on joints and the spine.
I HAVE NEVER DONE LAGREE FITNESS. SHOULD I DO A PRIVATE LESSON FIRST?
It depends on your current fitness level. Most of our new students do just fine in the class, especially if they take the introduction class first (offered weekly). The workout is intense, but the routine is kept simple to make sure everyone is using good form. However, if you have chronic back pain, painful joints or a severe medical condition, it is recommended that you take a private session first to assess your fitness level.
HOW DO I SCHEDULE A PRIVATE SESSION?
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you schedule your first private session. Keep in mind, the studio is available for private sessions during our non-class hours.
DO I NEED TO ARRIVE EARLY FOR MY FIRST CLASS?
Yes, please arrive ten minutes before class to ask any additional questions and fill out the necessary paperwork. If you show up late for your first class, you will be required to reschedule.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO CLASS?
- Most importantly, bring a positive attitude.
- Bring a towel, as you will most likely sweat!
- Grip workout socks are required for class. For your convenience, we sell grip socks at each studio.
- We have filtered water at the studio, but please bring a bottle for water to avoid wasting paper cups.
- Wear comfortable clothes that allow your muscles to stretch and your skin to “breathe.”
- Jewelry is NOT a good idea. It may get caught in the machines.
- No cell phones during classes.
- No strong perfumes as some students are allergic.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PRACTICE?
The workout is designed to work your body to muscle fatigue at which point you need to rest. Depending on your fitness level and the intensity of your workout, you will need more or less time to recover. We recommend 3 to 4 times a week to allow your body to properly recover and repair. Some students love the workout so much that they come 5 or 6 times a week. This is generally not recommended as your muscles need time to repair to get the best results. Listen to your body.
WHAT IF I CAN’T COME TO CLASS OR WANT TO CHANGE CLASS TIMES LESS THAN 12 HOURS IN ADVANCE? WILL I BE CHARGED?
Yes, even if it’s your first time. We absolutely require 12-hour notice before making any kind of changes to your schedule. The same rules apply even if you are making a change to your class time. If you are an unlimited monthly client, we will charge an additional $25 each time you cancel or reschedule a class without giving us the full 12-hour notice. If you are a limited package holder, you will lose your class. Because of the limited number of spaces in each class, we need to be sure that if you have signed up for a spot, you will show up for the class.
HOW DO I CONTACT INSPIRE SEATTLE?
Email us at email@example.com. Email is the best way to get a hold of us as we do not have a designed person at the front desk. We will respond to your email within 2 hours.
HOW DOES THE WAITLIST WORK?
If you are added to a class from the waitlist, you will receive an email notification no less than 12 hours prior to the scheduled class time. If you do not receive an email notification, you have not been added to the class. Please remember to “opt-in” for email notifications in your profile if you choose to use the waitlist. PLEASE NOTE: If you do not have any unused or unreserved classes in your package, you will not be confirmed into the class and your spot will be given to the next person on the waitlist.
