Trim Fitness Grand Opening


We sat with Melissa Hennessee, the owner of Trim Fitness to talk about her grand opening, FREE classes she's offering, and the benefits of her methodical but energetic and fun Lagree workouts. Read our interview with her below and check out our video to catch a sneak peek. 


What is unique about the classes that Trim Fitness offers?

At Trim Fitness Studio, we believe in the science of the Lagree Fitness Method. We have seen thousands of our members achieve results that have helped to strengthen not only the body, but also the mind. Our focus is to teach the Lagree Fitness Method the way it was designed to be taught by Sebastien Lagree. Our instructors consistently teach an intense, effective, and safe workout on the Megaformer.

What are the benefits of the Lagree method?

The classes at Trim Fitness Studio are challenging but the best part is that it's low impact.  As a matter of fact, Lagree Fitness is the highest intensity and lowest impact workout currently on the market. It is an efficient, full-body sculpting, and fat-burning workout. Lagree Fitness is designed to test and improve your cardio, strength, endurance, core, balance, and flexibility. You should expect to sweat and feel your muscles shake. It is a workout that leaves you feeling energized and stronger.

How did you personally get started?

I started taking Lagree classes several years ago after the birth of my second daughter. I had a foot and wrist injury that kept me from my usual routine of running and yoga. I instantly fell in love with the high intensity workout and the results. It quickly became an addiction, and I knew I would open a studio as soon as my kids were in school full time.

What are some of the most gratifying moments as an instructor and owner?

The most gratifying moments by far, have been the feedback from our members and instructors about the positive environment that we have created at Trim. My main goal when opening a Lagree Studio was to build a community where everyone felt welcome and supported.

It seems like you have a passionate and close-knit team. How did you pick your team of instructors?

The Trim Tribe thrives on positivity and we are really always there for each other. I like to think that our instructors chose Trim to be the studio that they teach at. Our instructors are passionate about the Lagree Method and helping people live a happier and healthier life.        

This June 1st is your grand opening for your second location! Anything we should know about for the upcoming opening?

We are hosting free classes at The CAMP from June 1st – June 10th. We want to open our doors with the positive vibes of giving back to the community. Sign up on our website and be ready to sweat!
