5 years ago, we introduced the Lagree Method in Zurich in Studio Forum. This little studio has been pivotal for booster helping us to confirm our conviction that there was some space to introduce the Lagree Method in one of the city with the highest fitness offer concentration per habitants.
Thousands of clients have enjoyed and are still today enjoying the atmosphere of the classes in this semi-private environment, but when we got to know that the ground floor level of the building on 120 Badenerstrasse was free, we decided it was a unique opportunity to move the studio down 2 floors, and create a unique space to workout.
We will keep the spirit of the studio with a limited number of clients per class (7 maximum instead of 5 today) so that you can still enjoy a very personalised coaching and spirit. There will be also many improvements and innovations that are presented below and which we are sure you will love!
We are still finetuning the works schedule and some details, but we expect to open the new studio before the end of the year. The current studio will continue to operate as normal before the move.
1 – A community space
The entrance will be a community space where you will be able to wait for your classes or hang out after, or spend some time working if you have your last presentation to finish.
2 – Changing rooms and showers
The studio will be offering changing rooms and showers for women (x2) and men (x1) with standards similar to what you can experience in Studio Selnau.
3 – A welcoming workout room
The workout room is also designed in the same spirit as studio Selnau. Large windows will make it a very bright space. For your privacy, beautiful curtains will be closed during the classes.
4 – 7 Megaformers M3
You will also find upgraded M3 Megaformers with one of the most latest developed carriage, similar to the one we have in Studio Selnau. The carriage has more options for hands and feet placement which is paramount to accommodate all fitness levels and to optimize the intensity of the workout. The more hands and feet options also allow for quicker transition between exercises.
5 – Last but not least, this studio will be the first studio outside of the U.S. to offer the ‘Ramp’
The Ramp is a new and additional device that fits under the Megaformer and allows the Megaformer to incline on the back. The ramp increases the cardio effect, and changes the anatomy of all the exercises you know! Training at a different angle targets the muscles differently. The ramp is an effective way to increase even more the intensity of the Lagree Method, while remaining a low impact workout.
The classes that will be using the Ramp will be shortened in time (and will be also coming with special adapted prices). We will also continue to offer our regular 50′ classes without using the ramp.
