Pilates for Dudes – The Haute Room
Men. Dudes. Brahs. Meatheads. Whatever category you fall into, you’ve probably seen or heard the word Pilates and thought “No way man, that’s for chicks.” See that guy up there in the picture? Still think it’s for ladies? Pilates-inspired Lagree Fitness is about as dude-ish as you can get (no offense to the ladies – you’re super badass if you do Lagree).
Allow us to elaborate.
First off, Lagree is not technically Pilates, so we can stop calling it that.
Lagree Fitness was developed by fitness guru (and super manly man), Sebastien Lagree. He was a big fan of Pilates, being a former Pilates instructor himself (and also personal trainer to many celebrities), but developed Lagree Fitness as a step up, to pick up where Pilates fell short. Which is why Lagree is often called “Pilates on crack.”
Even so, we have to give credit where credit is due. Pilates wasn’t founded by a woman. For the record, Joseph Pilates, the guy who founded Pilates, was a boxer and also a super manly dude. I mean, look at that guy and tell me you don’t want to look like that at 82.
Second, Lagree is a VERY tough workout.
It’ll put hair on your chest. But seriously, it’s 50 minutes of heart-pumping, sweat-dripping, muscle-trembling, hurt-so-good pain. This guy described it as one of the toughest workouts he’s ever done:
I started praying that my dripping sweat would mask the tears I was sure would start flowing.
Lagree is an innovative approach to full-body conditioning. Each class is done on the Megaformer (The Haute Room is Orange County’s first fitness studio to feature the latest model of Megaformer, the M3S). The Megaformer has resistance options ranging from 8 lbs to 150 lbs, so whether you’re a weekend warrior or an elite athlete, you’re sure to get a killer workout.
There’s no dancing, choreography, or tights required here – the only equipment you’ll need are the Megaformer, our instrument of
torture fitness, straps, gripper socks, and a towel for your sweat. (Yes, we know it sounds a bit kinky. That’s part of the initial appeal.)
Don’t believe us? Pay $69 and get 2 weeks unlimited. Just enough time to get hooked! Special offer from June 1st-June 30th: *15% off any 3-month contract or Class Pack. Use promo code HAUTEBRO
Lagree Fitness at The Haute Room is without a doubt one of the toughest workouts in Orange County.
Ask not what you can do for Lagree, but what Lagree can do for you (not sure, but we think that’s how that quote goes):
Here’s what you’ll get out of Lagree Fitness:

In other words, how do these sound to you?

As they say, the proof is in the pudding. Again, allow me to direct your attention to the picture of the guy up top. So come give it a shot. Your wife or significant other will be so impressed. And if you don’t have a wife or significant other, you just might get one after two weeks in The Haute Room. (wink, wink)
