The Pilates Studio Las Vegas is bringing Sebastien Lagree the founder of Lagree Fitness to Las Vegas on Saturday October 26, 2013 to kick off our 30-day Holiday Challenge. We are also celebrating our 1 Year Anniversary of Lagree Fitness (formerly SPX Pilates) and Megaformer classes. Clients that want to look and feel fabulous for the holidays will start their 30-day quest with Sebastien Lagree teaching their first session. This group will work out four times a week with Gracie Martinez on the Megaformer, Hollywood’s Hottest Workout and apparatus evolutionized by celebrity fitness guru Sebastien Lagree, and will have 2 consultations with Stephanie Shelburne about their holiday diet strategy. You can also take a single class that day and experience one of the most amazing workouts and feel how your body can be transformed.
Join us and learn how to stay healthy through the holidays and enjoy yourself guilt free – not to mention that sexy body you’ll be rockin’. Healthy appetizers will be served and kickin music from a guest DJ.
A portion of the proceeds from our 30-day challenge will benefit The Jared Foundation. As a leader in the fight to help children learn life-long healthy diet and exercise habits, The Jared Foundation provides programs for children ages 6-14 with support tools for parents, educators and healthcare professionals.

Why is the Megaformer so effective?
- Slow and controlled movement. The key is to NOT use momentum. Each phase of the exercise takes 4 seconds or more. You minimize the risk for injury. You wake up other muscles that have adapted to your traditional routines. You load muscles for a longer amount of time which will increase strength gains.
- Muscle failure. Each set is designed to work a muscle group to “failure”. Muscular failure is when muscles can no longer contract concentrically. During a session you will start to recruit slow twitch muscle fibers first. As the set progresses, those muscles fibers will weaken and your body will recruit fast intermediate fibers. For the last seconds of of your set, the body will recruit your fast twitch fibers to finish. It is progressive overloading and creates the greatest metabolic response.
- EPOC. Exercise post-excessive oxygen consumption. Studies show that the greatest fat loss happens AFTER the workout. During EPOC the body is recovering and thus is consuming oxygen at an elevated rate. Energy is being expended which also means an elevated consumption of fat. This can continue for up to 38 hours after a workout.
The Megaformer workout is a full body workout which increases endurance, muscle tone, fat-burning, cardio, strength, and flexibility.
The Pilates Studio Las Vegas is currently the only studio in Las Vegas offering this incredible workout. Contact the studio for class times and schedule.

Pregnancy is such an amazing time in a women’s life. She will see and feel so many changes with her body. She may also be a little hesitant about what type of exercise to do. It is very important that she receives a medical release from her physician before she starts any exercise program.
Pilates and Yoga are among the best type of exercise because they are so low impact and can be modified as her pregnancy progresses. Besides focusing on strength and posture other benefits include:
-Maintenance of flexibility
-Developement of pelvic floor strength
-Prevention of Sciatic nerve pain and Carpal Tunnel
-Focus on breathing techniques which can assist during labor and delivery
All of the apparatus can be used during all 3 trimesters and special props are incorporated during her workout to keep her comfortable. As the pregnancy changes, modifications will be added to her program to keep her strong, without exhausting her too much.
After the new baby arrives, Pilates and Yoga will be essential in getting your “mommy body” back! When she is allowed to go back to a regular exercise program, the changes will be amazing. She will start feeling her core again, and her overall strength and tone will change dramatically.
It is very important to work with an instructor who has many years experience working with Pre and Post Natal clients. As a team you will both see your transformation begin and leave you with a sense of balance and well being.
