I am new to the Megaformer. Should I take a private lesson first?
CHI50 does not require you to start with a private session if you are a beginner. Our certified trainers will explain the machine to you & coach you through the class, giving modifications to suit your fitness level.
We do recommend private sessions to clients that may have a medical condition or any injuries.
Please email info@CHI50.com if you are unsure... we are here to guide you!
What should I bring to class?
We don't require you to wear grip socks but they are highly recommended! If you do not own grip socks you can purchase them at the studio.
*Complimentary hand towels will be provided
*We have a filtered water filling station so bring your water bottle and stay hydrated!
*Bring an open mind, and a desire to change and become stronger!
Should I eat before/after the workout?
We recomend having a small snack, 30-45 minutes, before working out... apple, banana, handful of almonds. Eating something light before workout will help keep your energy up and also helps you burn more fat rather than muscle!
After class we suggest to consume protein within 45 minutes of working out. Eating protein post workout helps with muscle recovery.
Can I work out at CHI50 if I’m pregnant?
We love our prenatal and postnatal clients! If you are new to the Lagree Method and pregnant make sure to check in with your doctor first before starting a new fitness regime. It's important if you are pregnant to arrive early to every class so that you can check in with your instructor so they can go over the correct modifications and adjustments with you ( this is important for every class you take). For our postnatal clients please make sure to have clearance from your doctor to start working out again. Remember to check in with your instructor (we want to make class enjoyable and accessible for you!).
How early should I arrive?
Please arrive at least 5 minutes prior to your class start time. If it’s your first time at CHI50, you must arrive at least 10 minutes prior so that your instructor can introduce you to the studio and the equipment. If you do not show up with enough time for us to give you a full review of the machine then you will not be permitted to take class. Even if you have been on the Megaformer before, if you are new to CHI50 then you must still arrive 10 minutes early for your first class.
Will my spot be given away if I am late?
Yes! It is important to be on time. We allow 5 minutes after class start time for you to still jump into class, after that the doors will be locked. If someone is at the studio waiting and you are not there at class start time your spot will be given away to the person on standby. If you are NEW to class, you MUST arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of class. All new members go through a walk through of the machine to receive proper set- up and safety of the machine. If you do not arrive in time to get a thorough introduction to the machine you will not be allowed to enter the class.
