Lagree Fitness Studio Westwood + WeHo

March 30, 2018

Although there’s over 300+ Lagree Fitness locations worldwide, LA is the only place in the world where you can try out Sebastien Lagree’s personally owned and operated studios – you know, the fitness guru praised by Hollywood’s A-list for keeping their bodies in tip-top shape with his Megaformer machine?

Well now you can visit the first-ever “Megaformer Pop-Up Studio” — Lagree Fitness Studio Westwood – featuring Lagree’s signature 50-minute Megaformer classes on his newer M3S machines 7x a week. Check out the class schedule here. Leading ladies like Meghan Markle, Kim Kardashian, Michele Obama and Sofia Vergara swear by the workout for long, lean muscles without the bulk. This class will literally hit every muscle in the shortest possible workout (hardest, bafflingly so!) I think I have ever had. Think WTF this is isane, hard AF and freaking AMAZING!!!!

Like its sister studio in West Hollywood, the new Lagree Fitness Studio outpost will soon offer Lagree’s signature 25-minute, full-body HIIT workout every half-hour on Lagree’s patented Supra machine — the Megaformer cousin that inclines and tilts like a space simulator, turning you into an actual puddle of sweat.

Until they swap out the M3S for the Supras this Summer, head to either location for a 400-cal-burning session dubbed “Hollywood’s Toughest Workout,” by the LA Times, and maybe you’ll spot some studio favorites like Rihanna, Jennifer Aniston, or Ashley Graham among your class crowd.

HOTBOX – NEW INFRARED CHROMOTHERAPY

March 16, 2018

WOOT! A new spot just opened to get your get your sweat on in DTLA! It’s call HOTBOX.

I had a great sweat the other day. The place is totally gorgeous. The sweat is not at crazy as Shape House and feels very different as you are not in the tight blanket. It’s more of a post gym type of sweat or the kind I would love to own in my home. Many people do!

Each suite also has chromotherapy and a vitamin C infused rain shower, an iPad for tunes or Netflix (I went for Gongs!) and its a hot spot to totally chill. 

HEAT

THE DIFFERENCE OF INFRARED

Developed in the 1970’s by Japanese health practitioners, infrared saunas were designed for those who want to look and feel their best. Infrared offers the same health benefits as traditional Finnish saunas, but provides a gentle and soothing experience.

HEALTHY HEAT,
BREATHABLE AIR

Unlike traditional Finnish convection saunas which heat the body from the outside-in, resulting in hot, often intolerable air – our infrared saunas heat the body from the inside-out, leaving the air pleasant and comfortable, allowing for a longer sweat.

A CLEAN SWEAT

Perspire in a pristine, spotless, private suite, equipped with your own vitamin C rain shower. Infrared heat kills 99% of bacteria, creating an inherently sterile environment. Relax your mind and rejuvenate your body in confidence.

TOTAL BODY WELLNESS

HotBox technology allows for increased sessions providing higher detoxification. Experience glowing beauty, cleansing immunity and more from the proactive benefits of a vibrant sweat.

DETOX

Feel the difference of 7x the toxin cleanse from heating your body directly. 

GLOW

Enhance your beauty, reduce wrinkles, cleanse your pores and renew skin elasticity. 

PERFORM

Increase your endurance and build muscle naturally with the release of HGH. 

RECOVER

Speed up injury recovery time from aches and pains to chronic conditions.

  

SLIM

Pump up your heart rate and melt away up to 600 calories per session.

VITALITY

Lower blood pressure and improve circulation for longevity and rejuvenation.

IMMUNITY

Easily increase core body temperature and eliminate toxins to create healthier cells.

RELAX

Let the pure heat of infrared relieve stress and improve feelings of happiness.

RELIEF

Help the body heal naturally. Reduce soreness of nerve endings and muscle spasms.

COLOR

A HUE FOR A NEW YOU

During any session, treat yourself to Chromotherapy, the science behind the healing power of color. Experience HotBox in a positive light through the natural benefits of visible electromagnetic colors.
