Pilates Plus isn’t just Pilates.  In fact, it’s so much more!   International fitness guru Sebastien Lagree has developed his own version of the traditional Pilates reformer called The MegaFormer™. And it is now available at Pilates Plus Porter Ranch. This newly enhanced reformer empowers Pilates Plus to create the perfect body.

Pilates Plus attacks excess bulk in the hips and thighs and tightens the body’s core muscles for abs of steel. The intense training sessions, which combine Pilates with strength training, achieve visible muscle definition significantly faster than Pilates or any other kind of Pilates-based workout.

Pilates Plus is based on the fact that people don’t need more exercise time to get fit, they just need more intensity. The body responds more to intensity than it does to the duration of a workout. A more intense workout burns more calories per minute, and results in a much stronger post-exercise reaction (also called Post Cardio Effect). After a Pilates Plus class, you will continue to burn calories much faster for several hours.

Former advocates of hard-core yoga (like the Ashtanga style Madonna swears by) have achieved a lithe, toned body significantly faster with this unique circuit-training program. Even someone who consistently puts in time at the gym each week can achieve the same – if not better – results in half the time. One of the keys to Pilates Plus is pushing the body to muscle failure. As the term implies, PP’s workout isolates specific muscles until they can no longer move. Ironically, muscle failure is the only proven path to successfully achieving muscle definition.
