Get to know a thing or two about your Core Contour team. We know a thing or two about sweating it out, and we are ready to begin this journey of the strongest version of you.
A fun class that will get you on your way to contouring your physical and mental physique! It is my goal to guide you toward becoming the strongest version of you, no matter your fitness level.
French Twist + push ups – there is no better way to get deep in the obliques! It’s definitely a little bit of a love/hate, but it’s so incredible effective, and gets the whole body working.
I love to drink my greens in a protein shake with a handful of dark chocolate covered almonds on the side – and of course lots of water!
“A New Earth” by Eckhart Tolle. This is the first book that really helped me to shift some mental habits that were not useful. I love anything that expands my mind and challenges my current worldview and belief system.
I had dabbled in various fitness methods over the years, but it wasn’t until I took my first Lagree class on the Megaformer that I knew I found something truly special. My first class left me both sore and wanting more! After only a handful of classes I started feeling stronger, and noticing a difference, which was incredibly gratifying. The Lagree method fit my personal philosophy of the importance of constant evolution as the key to self-improvement – which is exactly what is accomplishes.
My workout style is insanely intense (I should come with an advisory sticker), highly focused for anyone serious about achieving their fitness goals and steadily progressing beyond yesterday's limits. It is my mission to PUSH (with love) and positively ignite a spark in everyone I meet.
Plank to Pike
Plenty of water. I like bananas and since I have a sweet tooth, the occasional Rice Crispies treat. I tend to go through phases, eating one particular dish for days or weeks until I get tired of it. The current phase has me eating Chinese chicken with broccoli on a semi regular basis. A prior phase consisted of vegetable wraps in collard leaves with a home-made honey ginger pineapple dressing (yes, I can cook). Not sure what the future phase will be...you're welcome to ask when you see me. Don't be surprised if you catch me at Krispy Kreme down the block...did I mention I have a sweet tooth?
While I sense this is where I'm supposed to wow you, the reader, with my profound intellect by siting a literary masterpiece that inspired me emotionally and/or spiritually, I'm morally compelled to answer honestly (I can not tell a lie). I'm a big kid at heart so I'm going to have to go with Dr. Seuss, (after taking my class you'll better understand why) specifically Fox In Sox, or perhaps more apropos would be Green Eggs And Ham...you know the one where Sam gets the reluctant cat to try something new and much to his surprise, he loves it...Thank you, thank you, Sam I am!
The Lagree method revolutionized not only my own personal fitness habits but the way I engage clients in their approach to training for excellence as well. After my first session on the Megaformer, the greatest lesson for me was just how much more efficiently the muscles work when the movements are slowed down forcing a more sustained prolonged contraction that is felt both concentrically and eccentrically through out the full "effective" range of motion.
Freedom from the everyday. Shaking quivering muscles. Hard work, lots of motivation and a dose or two of comic relief:)
I absolutely love every Lagree Fitness move, for infinite reasons!! But the Giant Spoon holds a special place in my heart!
Ice Cold double IPA... after an evening class! Bananna with cashew-nutbutter after an am sesh!
Strengths Finder- it has a "test" you take online after and gives you your top five strengths! It's premise is that you should focus on what you are naturally good and make that stronger, at rather than always trying to fix the things that you arent as good at.
Kismet. I grew up competing in gymnastics, was blessed with an amazing coach who instilled in me the principles of hard work and physical fitness. In college I went on to study the human body, earning my degree in Exercise Science. We have amazing capabilities! The power of your mind on your body- to empower it, to push it, to heal it is so exciting. And I I love being an example & a catalyst! The principles we learned that work to give you results are exactly what Lagree and the megaformer put into action!! You can only get results by fatiguing a muscle!! The absolute best way to strengthen a muscle is to work the muscle in an isolated hold... The lagree method takes these basic principles and applies them in an amazing, constantly evolving, awesome format... So in a sense, with Lagree Fitness, I found home. After all thats where your heart is❤️
A friendly, welcoming class that will get you focused and ready to push past your boundaries. When you leave, you'll feel invigorated knowing you had an amazing full-body workout, and a lot of fun!
What a hard question! The lunge series literally kicks my booty and that's why I love it!
Coconut water and some protein. If I got it really handed to me, then a salt water bath!
I love books! The right book will help you on your journey. New books will show themselves to help lead you on this ever-changing ride we are on. The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle and Bossy Pants by Tina Fey are me current favs.
I love the after effect of having more energy. Having an auto-immune disorder, I am careful to take care of me body and not over exert myself. Not only can I do this high-intensity workout, but my body loves it!
My goal for each class is to have every participant exceed their own personal expectations. I believe everyone is stronger than they think and I coach clients to surpass what they previously thought was impossible!
My favorite exercise is the Giant Reverse Plank to Pike. It is so challenging yet so empowering.
Water, water and more water.
By far my favorite book and the one that has had the greatest impact on me is “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee. The story transcends age, race and gender. The multiple messages offer so much insight into the inner workings of humanity and the power of kindness and humility.
As a competitive runner and fitness instructor, I love physical challenges. I have found the Lagree Fitness Method equal parts mentally and physically challenging. The slow controlled movements require full concentration and physical engagement. Every workout brings out my inner warrior!
