This study proves the Megaformer is comparable or better cardio than the treadmill

Megaformer versus...

For the cardio junkies among us winter equals boredom. The weather takes us from the great outdoors to the monotony of the treadmill. Until now.

Sebastien Lagree, creator and founder of Lagree Fitness, recently completed a study on the cardiovascular effects of Lagree Fitness. The test compared a 20 minute Lagree Fitness workout on the Megaformer with a 20 minute workout on the treadmill, the number one cardio equipment used in gyms.

Key results:

  • Cardiovascular benefits:
    • heart rates peaked quickly on the treadmill
    • heart rates increased consistently on the Megaformer, reaching a comparable or higher rate as the treadmill
  • Muscular strength and endurance:
    • the Megaformer is a total body workout, targeting muscles in isolation or compounded
    • the treadmill primarily works the lower body, with very little effect on the upper body
  • Impact on the joints, spine and connective tissue:
    • the Megaformer is low impact, offering an almost a limitless number of exercises and full range of motion
    • running on the treadmill is a high impact, repetitive motion
  • Other benefits
    • the Megaformer stimulates balance, core and flexibility in unique exercises that cannot be performed on any other equipment

The Megaformer is specifically designed to combine cardio, strength, endurance, core, balance and flexibility not only in one session, but in each and every move. Watch the video to learn more.
