I have never done Megaformer before, do I need to go to a beginner class?
Our Megaformer and Ride classes are for all levels.
Please arrive 10 minutes early for your first class so we can show you around the studio, do a quick health pre-screen and show you how the Megaformer works or how to set up your Bike properly.
Your instructor will guide the class through each exercise, offering options to challenge you whether it’s your first or 50th class.
I am really unfit and haven’t exercised for ages, will I be able to do a class?
Congratulations on making the decision to get fit! You came to the right place.
Our classes are for all fitness levels, and the exercises are slow and controlled so you will always keep up. If you do find a particular exercise super challenging, your instructor can offer plenty of modifications to lower the intensity.
Where can I park?
At the Subiaco studio:
There is free 1 hour street parking on Hay Street and those surrounding (2 hours on Townshend Street!). If the street is busy, there is also paid parking at the corner of Olive & Churchill Streets, corner Townshend & York Streets and at The Colonnade.
At the Highgate studio:
There is free 1 hour parking at the Brisbane Hotel, 2 hours free on Baker Ave and other various paid parking on Brisbane St.
What do I need to wear?
Wear something comfortable you can stretch and bend in, like you would wear to pilates or yoga.
We wear grip socks on the Megaformer so if you have a pair please bring them, or you can buy a pair at reception.
If you are here to Ride, don’t forget your sneakers or bike shoes!
How many times a week should I come?
You’ll see the full benefits of Lagree Fitness with just 2 – 3 classes per week!
During class, we work at effective intensity to stimulate the muscles (the sweat, shake and burn we talk about!) Allowing sufficient rest between classes allows your body to recover and repair which increases your intensity threshold for the next class.
The Lagree Method not only improves your performance and results, it provides much-needed balance and time to do other things you love.
Our rhythm Ride class is the high intensity cardio burn that you will love to hate! It wouldn’t be surprising if you get addicted, so coming every day is possible, but even just 2 of these session a week will keep you shredding the calories.
Where else can I do Megaformer?
LA Fit Studio is the only fitness studio in WA with the Lagree Fitness method and Megaformer machines!
If you’re interstate or overseas use the Lagree Locator or ask us for a recommendation to find a studio.
Is Ride just like RPM and Spin?
Ummmm no. It is like saying that Lagree is just like Pliates. It is a rhythm Ride, which means you cycle to the beat of the music. There are no technical drills, boring hills or out of control sprints here! Each class is cleverly curated by our amazing instructors who will take you on a journey and may even get you singing. Ride is a cardio party on your bike!
How does the waitlist work?
You can put yourself on standby for a sold out class by adding yourself to the wait list.
If a spot opens up you’ll receive a text message. Reply “Y” to confirm or “N” to decline so we can give the spot to another member.
The wait list is locked 2 hours prior to the scheduled class so if a spot opens up within this time you will be added directly to the class. Please be aware you cannot rebook the class if you miss it, so take yourself off the waitlist if you cannot make it.
What happens if I miss my class?
If you are unable to make a class please log into your account and cancel so we can give your spot to another member.
If you cancel more than 12 hours before the class start time this is called an Early Cancel, and you can rebook the session.
If you cancel less than 12 hours before the class start time this is called a Late Cancel, and cannot be rebooked. However you are welcome to show up as a walk-in for a later class that day and if there is a free spot, it’s yours!
If you are absent from a booked class this is called a No Show which, as of November 11 2016, will attract a $15 No Show Fine.
What happens if I am late to class?
We get it, life happens, usually at the worst time. Please give yourself enough time to get here and be prepared prior to the start time of the class.
Arriving even one minute late could mean that your spot is given to a member that is waiting or the door may be locked.
If you know you just won’t make it, please cancel yourself out of class so that the instructor is notified.
I’m pregnant. Can I come to Megaformer class?
Unless you have been advised otherwise by your doctor, exercising is an important part of maintaining a healthy pregnancy! If you have been working out with us regularly prior to falling pregnant you can continue classes as long as you feel comfortable.
If Megaformer is new to you, we do not recommend starting during pregnancy due to the intensity of the core exercises. We’d love to help you get back into shape after bub!
I’m pregnant. Can I come to Ride class?
Yes! But please take note of these few guidelines to ensure you and your baby stay safe.
- Ride is a high cardio class. While pregnant keeping your heart rate to a manageable level is vital and so our rule is that you should always be able to talk during the class- or even better sing along and enjoy the music!
- Your bike setup up could be adjusted to lower the seat and/or lift the handle bars, please talk to your instructor about what feels most comfortable.
- Moves and positions. It is completely normal for you to adjust your workout or modify moves to be safe and comfortable. A few things you can do;
- Third position, or standing while riding, has the potential to put unnecessary tension on the pelvis, so stay seated.
- No bounce, again may cause stress on the pelvis, stay seated.
- Push ups and dips. May feel uncomfortable as your belly grows bigger, so stay up right and keep riding!
- Keep your cool. It is important that your body temperature does not rise, so pick a cool spot in the room, drink lots of water, slow down or even take a break if you are feeling too hot.
- As with all our classes make sure you have something to eat before you arrive, and drink lots of water to keep hydrated.
