Lacy : Owner



Lacy Travis has always lived a very active lifestyle, participating in dance, volleyball, basketball, and track in her youth. As a young professional, she found herself immersed in a corporate real estate career but always knew a passion of hers wasn't being fulfilled.

Five years ago, Lacy discovered Lagree and the Megaformer. She was instantly hooked and became determined to share this unparalleled workout with others and change lives by the hundreds. Within months she received her Lagree certification and began working toward opening her own studio in Orange County.

Everyone who knows Lacy agrees her love for life, happiness, and self-improvement is infectious and should be bottled up to share with the rest of the world! Lacy is genuine, raw, and appreciates everyone for who they are. She has a gift for finding something positive in the gravest of situations. She will push you to be the best version of yourself, and is dedicated to making every one of your fitness dreams come true.

Lacy believes that “If your dreams don’t scare you, they aren’t big enough!” Dream big, and push yourself! You have one shot at life, so make it count! See you at The Haute Room!

Deana : Instructor



For as long as she can remember, Deana has been into health and fitness. It is her passion and she lives to share it.

Deana grew up playing soccer, dancing, and practicing weight training and martial arts. Her passion drove her to become National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and Spin Certified. She has even competed in a few fitness competitions.

Once she discovered the Lagree method it only took one class for her to know she had to share this method with everyone! So she quickly became an instructor.

Deana believes the mind-body connection is powerful and can change the way you live your life. If your fitness doesn't challenge you mentally and physically, it will not change you.

Ernest : Instructor



Ernest was born and raised on a farm in Oregon. After high school, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps from 2001-2005, graduated from college, and served as an officer in the Marines from 2009-2012. Ernest became Lagree Certified in March 2014.

As you can imagine, being a Marine lends itself to some pretty intense physical fitness. Ernest is in great shape and leads Lagree classes for the simple joy of it.

He enjoys eating, lifting weights, and reading. Wanna get on Ernest's good side? Here's an insider's tip: Be on time to his class - his pet peeve is tardiness! 🙂

Joanne : Instructor



Joanne is a fitness enthusiast with over 20 years of personal experience in the industry. She completed her Pilates/Dance Conditioning Certificate in May 2012 from Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa. Joanne’s lifelong passion for fitness and nutrition led her from her personal 12-year fitness practice at the gym to practicing Pilates for several years. Ultimately, she decided to move forward and enroll in the Pilates Program at OCC to be able to share it with others.

Joanne’s love for Pilates and desire to continue her fitness education brought her to discover the next level of her practice, the Lagree Method. She has been an avid participant and educator of this method since June 2012.

Joanne is a firm believer that you can achieve anything you set your mind to. Motivation, drive, determination, and desire to improve her own health and the health of others were huge factors in her decision to start teaching Lagree.

Joanne believes the secrets to achieving a healthy and satisfying life are: enjoying what you do (as you're much more likely to stick with it!), and developing the perspective that fitness is a lifestyle as opposed to a chore.

Stacey : Instructor



Stacey was born and raised in the city of Orange, where she currently resides with her husband and two kids. Stacey has been an athlete her entire life. Her best memories were made in the gymnasium where she played high school basketball and volleyball. Her talent and hard work paid off, as she received a volleyball scholarship to the University of Massachusetts Lowell.

Stacey graduated with a BS in Health Education and a minor in Nutrition. Her athleticism did not stop there. She became an avid indoor cyclist and runner. She has competed in a number of half marathons and a full marathon.

In 2014, after having two children, Stacey's sister introduced her to Lagree. She quickly became addicted to the workout, practicing six days a week (because seven would just be crazy). Stacey loves the total body workout and the high-intensity, low-impact training she gets from Lagree Fitness in The Haute Room. Lagree has helped her achieve a new level of endurance and performance in her other sports and activities.

Stacey's passion for the Lagree method does not go unnoticed in class. You will not only get your butt kicked in Stacey’s class, but you will have fun as well!
