Usually when I get called for a photo shoot or video, my job entails smiling, striking a pose, holding a weight or posture, and inviting the audience into the “pretty world of fitness.” This wasn’t the case however last month, when I was asked to be part of a new workout trend that is taking Toronto by storm: The Megaformer by Sebastien Lagree. “Lagree Fitness is the unique fusion of strength, core, cardio/circuit training and stretching into an intense, shirt-drenching, 50-minute exercise experience.” Yeah, well I wish they told me that before agreeing to do the job The workout was a challenge to say the least. I felt all of my stabilizer muscles that usually get missed in my “typical” weightlifting routine. My core was on fire, and after about 30 seconds of filming, all of us “fit” models turned to each other with the same look of agony on our faces….
The truth is, the workout left me feeling strong, sore and I felt areas in my posterior chain (aka ASS) that I never even knew existed!
You need to try this out if you are in the Toronto area……it is well worth your time.
Oh! I also got to appear on CTV’s ETALK! Check out the video and see if you can spot me….(second 30. hint hint).
