Fit5 Studio Coming Soon: Live, Love, Sweat and Lagree
Sora Gagne, Founder of Fit5 Studio featuring the Lagree Method
I love sharing my fitness tips along with healthy and yummy recipes… whether I am spending time with my two beautiful children, traveling, practicing and teaching or cooking dinner for friends and family, I strive to make each and every day my best day. I am truly blessed to have found a career in a field that I truly love and cherish, I take pride in what I do, I feel this is what I was meant to do, it was my calling to help and inspire others to achieve their fitness and lifestyle goals, to transform the bodies and minds of others and to spread the love!
I was born in Berlin, Germany, a melting pot of different cultures, philosophies and foods. Being half Korean and growing up with my mothers Korean cooking allowed me to enjoy a variety of different foods. I started cooking at an early age, my dad’s tendency to more Mediterranean cooking influenced me and diversified the way I grew up and approached food in general. Meals in my house are never boring, they are fresh, colorful and almost always homemade, I try to be the best example for my Family and live by what I preach!
After I met my husband in the Dominican Republic and moved to the USA, I realized my passion was in fitness and health, my mind was set to go apprentice in a Pilates School, but found out I was pregnant with my first child and we moved, my plan was put on hold.
I got my Real Estate license instead, while pregnant and worked in the industry for a while. I never lost touch of exercising and staying active and maintaining a balanced and healthy diet, that was the only way for me to bounce back into my pre-pregnancy figure.
Once my second child was born, I actually knew, now was the time to focus on my initial and actual passion, to inspire others to be their best version!
I got certified as a Pilates Instructor with BASI and as a Barre Fitness Instructor, I became a certified Lifestyle and Weight Management Specialist through NESTA and started Body by Sora.
I taught privates, semi-privates and group classes, in addition I offered a Personal Chef service to help others understand what healthy eating everyday actually meant!
But when I discovered the Lagree Method on the Megaformer I fell in Love at first sweat, I was sooooooo sore for days, but it felt so so good, I reached all the muscles in every possible way I could!
The men behind the Megaformer and the Lagree Method is Sebastien Lagree, the inventor and creator of this state of the art Method and Megaformer machine.
I knew it was not my last Lagree Method class on the Megaformer.
I saw results in my body pretty much immediately and I got hooked, no wonder everybody in Hollywood is doing it, even the First Lady. This method changed my life and I had to become an instructor for the Lagree Method. I felt Lagree complimented what I taught before, but added a challenge, intensity and effectiveness which I didn’t know was possible!
I can honestly say that my body in my late thirty’s after two children and a husband is better than in my twenties. I am more defined and toned, my core is stronger then ever before and I bet Lagree has something to do with it!
I taught at BOCO Fit in Boulder, now we have relocated to Fort Collins and are ready to open doors this early Fall!
I had to spread my love for this Method, that’s how Fit5 came to together!
Fit5 Studio brings the Lagree Fitness Phenomenon and the Megaformer to Fort Collins, CO! All 5 Elements of Fitness (Strength, Endurance, Cardio, Body Composition and Flexibility) in each and every move & in 50 minutes in 1 Workout! Fall in love with the Method, it's absolutely addictive and your Body will thank you! Coming this Fall 2016 to Fort Collins, CO.
The Lagree Method is low impact, high intensity, total body strength- training program designed to tone and sculpt muscles without bulking you up. Each move is performed slow and controlled on the Megaformer, a machine with a center carriage and platforms on each end with variable spring loads for resistance and counter resistance. The machine offers an infinite number of exercises to never find boredom nor to plateau. This Method challenges you each and every time, your mind power and body focus is challenged to the extreme. You stimulate the muscles until they quiver and shake and then you stay in it just a touch longer and go a little lower! Your heart rate is pumping, you stay in the tension zone the entire time, key is to never leave your tension zone, very fast and quick transition, no rest time in between each exercise for most effective stimulation and after burn for many more hours after class is over.
This Method is not just for the Hollywood Celebrity and Athlete, it is also approachable for you, in our small boutique studio setting, we will offer small group classes for a maximum of 10 clients at a time. This Method is for men, women, young and old, the cross-fit bad ass, the runner and the yogi, everyone of you will get something out of this workout and every single one is always able to improve and raise your bar!
I hope this got you excited,
You have what it takes, but it will take all you have!
