The Body Lab offers an innovative workout specifically designed to strengthen, tighten, and tone the body quickly and safely. A unique fusion of pilates, cardio, and strength training, the workout is largely based on the holistic principles of Pilates, but also emphasizes the strength training and cardio elements not inherent to Pilates to achieve muscle definition faster than traditional Pilates and/or weight training alone. All in as little as 50 minutes!
By incorporating the key principles of core stability and blending them with the fusion of muscle dynamics, Sebastien Lagree has created the next evolution in physical fitness. It is the most innovative and aggressive approach to full body conditioning. Moving effectively out of the borders of conditioned stimulus, the workout integrates the key elements of resistance and counter-resistance in a sequence that allows for periods of zero gravity at peak muscle contraction. The composition of this method is significant in that it encourages maximum exertion while allowing for low risk of injury. The workout strengthens the body, tones and elongates the muscles, improves endurance, jump-starts the metabolism, burns fat, increases flexibility and postural alignment, and restores the body’s natural balance. The member, at conclusion, is left with a lithe and powerful body, resistant to the everyday stresses of work and life.
At the core of The Body Lab training method is the Megaformer™, which represents a significant evolution of the traditional Pilates reformer. It is designed to cater to both upper and lower body muscles, using a system of springs and pulleys to accommodate the resistance and counter-resistance elements of the workout. Under the guidance of a certified instructor, it’s one of the safest ways to strengthen muscles while reducing stress on the joints and connective tissue.
