Elliptical vs. Lagree Method

If we were to sum up the Lagree Fitness method on the Megaformer, we would say that it’s the perfect fusion of strength training, cardio, and flexibility training. Below, we show you how the Megaformer M3 compares to the popular Elliptical cardio machine.    

Elliptical 

Lagree M3 Megaformer

Cardiovascular workout Cardiovascular workout + increased fat burning
Repetitive Motion Wide range of motions
Casues excess wear and tear over time Lessens repetitive stress on joints
No accomodation for injuries Limitless amount of excercises to accomodate injuries
Lower Body Work Out Total Body Stimulation + Core + Balance
Heart Rate Peaks Heart Rate consistently increases through out the workout higher + hits percentile faster + stay in the zone longer

Testimonial Tuesday: Loren (100 Club Member)

This week’s Testimonial Tuesday features one of our 100 Club members, Loren! Within 6 months time, Loren completed over 100 classes with us. See what Loren has to say about her experience with us below:
I throughly enjoyed my time at Core Contour. The staff was highly motivating, helpful and well trained. I’ve suffered from back pain in the past and this was a great way to get a great full body workout without over stressing the back muscles. I have and would recommend anyone to give Core Contour a try. I know they will fall in love with the class, as I did. Enjoy!

Shayna embodies our philosophy of being “dedicated to discipline and addicted to transformation” She has been with us since we opened in April of last year. Since then, she has completed over 100 Core Contour classes, earning her spot in our 100 Club! Read her story below:

I was introduced to Core Contour last Spring, and it has been a great discovery! So many of the exercises have been amazing for my hip recovery. I play a lot of tennis and Core Contour has improved my strength and flexibility, which has ultimately helped my tennis game. I love how well the trainers know and understand the body. 

The convenient location and class times have worked for my hectic schedule. I am really happy to have found CC and recommend it to MANY of my friends!

Testimonial Tuesday: Cara Lerner! “My body has never looked better and I’ve noticed how much stronger I am.”

Cara has been getting in the Shake Zone with us since February this year, and has overcome some challenges while achieving astonishing results. Read her story about how Core Contour helped her get back into shape post-injury! 

 

I love Core Contour! My body has never looked better and I’ve noticed how much stronger I am. I broke my foot and couldn’t workout for 6 months because the fracture did not heal itself. I was so out of shape. I have always been naturally thin but all the weight I gain goes to my stomach. I can’t even believe the changes I see in my body. I can actually see the beginning of abs forming (which I’ve never had in my life)! No more spanx for me!

The first couple classes were a little discouraging. I couldn’t keep up with people double my age and couldn’t hold most exercises for more than 5 seconds. It’s gotten easier and was well worth the struggle. First, I noticed how different my body was looking and then how I could keep up with the class. 

My sister is getting married in 6 months and is getting nervous about looking her best on her special day. I told her about my experience at Core Contour and sent her a few pics. She was amazed and signed up for the class at the same type of gym in NYC! Now I’m trying to get my mom on board! 

It’s the hardest workout I’ve ever done but it’s full body in 50 minutes. I don’t have to do anything else!

Testimonial Tuesday! Dawn Dellapina (100 Club Member)

Dawn Dellapina is our featured Testimonial Tuesday for the week, and also one of our newest 100 Club members! She has completed over 100 classes at Core Contour within her 7 months with us. See what Dawn has to say about her experience below:
I took my first Core Contour class about 7 months ago. I knew right away that this was for me! I was instantly hooked by the intensity of the workout. The first weeks are very challenging but very shortly I saw the transformative potential of this program. The ability to combine different movements in endless creative combinations keeps things fresh and your body & mind challenged. I love the fact that I push every single muscle in my body as far as I possibly can, just for a moment, then it’s over and you’re onto the next move. I can honestly say this is one of the most intense workouts out there. It’s a complete body workout that pushes you in all the right directions. If you’re the kind of person who doesn’t think a workout is effective unless you’re sore the next day, then Core Contour is for you! The burn in your obliques, inner thighs and glutes is proof that it works. When I leave, I know for sure the time I just invested was well spent. I can’t say enough about the team at Core Contour. The well-trained and, professional instructors at Core Contour have taught me all the basics of Lagree Fitness and encouraged me every step of the way! The music is always upbeat and the instructor is always there letting you know that the shaking, well, it’s muscle making!! They each have their own style and it shows in their classes. I am so happy I found Core Contour!   Are you ready to join Dawn in the 100 Club? Reserve your Megaformer here!
