Lagree Fitness VS Pilates

LAGREE VS PILATES

LAGREE IS NOT PILATES.
PERIOD.

Since its birth, Lagree Fitness has distinguished itself from every form of exercise, including Pilates, which lacks intensity. Lagree uses tried and proven bodybuilding training techniques not inherent to Pilates. The union of these bodybuilding techniques and low-impact qualities, which are fundamental to Lagree Fitness, directly translate to fast results. While Pilates is based on breathing, concentration, control, centering, flow postural alignment, and precision, Lagree Fitness is fundamentally based on the following: Effective Form, Effective Range of Motion, Effective Tempo, Effective Duration, Effective Tension, Effective Transition, and Effective Plane of Motion.

LAGREE VS PILATES: THE DIFFERENCE IN PRINCIPLES

BALANCE IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS FLEXIBILITY

The Lagree Method places a large emphasis on balance as a fundamental for achieving real results in a quick amount of time. Focusing on balance allows for participants to avoid and prevent injuries. This quality, unique to Lagree Fitness, has helped many avid Lagree Fitness goers heal from chronic back injuries and other issues. Through years of research, Sebastien Lagree has found that balance training has proven to be more effective than strength training.

CONTROLLED REPS PERFORMED AT SLOW PACES DEMAND MORE FROM THE BODY

The famous Lagree-count, which consists of no less than eight seconds, does not allow for participants to utilize momentum while moving through each exercise. Instead, participants must use muscle groups in a slow, controlled fashion, which demands more metabolic work per unit of time. This extended amount of time that muscles are placed under tension produces rapid results for participants.

SPRINGS VS WEIGHT

At Lagree Fitness, our machines are equipped with springs rather than weight because the resistance and tension innate to the springs is elastic or variable, allowing users to adjust tension by adjusting body placement—a critical reason as to why our equipment includes numbers and lines on platforms and carriages.

THE LAGREE METHOD DOES NOT EXCLUDE CARDIO

Circuit training is a large part of what makes The Lagree Method critically different than Pilates. Lagree Fitness participants are required to move from one movement to the next with minimal rest time between. This keeps the participant’s heart rate up and demands cardiovascular growth—which, of course, results in more calories burned.

Pilates is not meant to be a cardio workout, so typically a participant’s heartrate will remain under 90 BPM. On the other hand, The Lagree Method ensures users will hit the anaerobic threshold and a heart rate over 145/150 BPM when performed correctly.

THE LAGREE METHOD BORROWS THE BODYBUILDING SUPERSET FOR EFFECTIVENESS

As a fitness guru fascinated by and passionate about bodybuilding, Sebastien Lagree has borrowed the superset method and made it part of what makes The Lagree Method considerably different than Pilates. By utilizing the superset method, Lagree Fitness goers move through shorter classes, heightened intensity levels, and a safer way to take their muscles to failure without the spotter that is typically needed in traditional bodybuilding.
