Lagree 45 :: Core Focus

This class is taught by:

Sara Stimac

Sara is the co-founder and owner of Firebrand. Sara’s love of fitness and sports came from a shared passion with her father, John. She began in ballet and jazz as a kid but quickly outgrew her tutu and traded it in for sneakers. Sara began her fitness career as a step aerobics instructor (grapevine!). Sara counts herself blessed to have discovered Lagree Fitness during her hectic years as an entertainment lawyer in LA.
An avid sports fan, Sara brings the coaching element into her classes, along with humor and bumping beats. When she’s not inspiring you to step out of your comfort zone, Sara’s watching the Cubs, taking selfies with her black cats or whipping up some healthy Swedish meatballs.

Kate Cary

Kate is an “OG” Firebrand and Advanced Lagree Fitness instructor. Although this natural athlete can do it all (soccer, cross-country, skiing, volleyball, surfing, etc.), her absolute passion is instructing fitness classes. She loves the energy and accountability of the classes and working with people and learning about their lives and goals.
Kate loves the community at Firebrand, which she described as “like-minded, driven people who go after their dreams one class at a time.” When she’s not helping people shred it, she bartends and is nanny to a total cutie patootie!

Cate Wade

Wade-o is a lifelong athlete and it shows in her classes. Departing from the norm, she played Division 1 Field Hockey and currently captains an adult league ice hockey team, where she shows the dudes who is boss. She’s also a NASM-certified trainer and occasional marathoner.
You guessed it. Her classes have an athletic feel to them. She believes the power of her class lies in the people in it, who lead by example and show each other what’s possible. When she isn’t creating in the studio, she’s putting her art-school background to work and watching Boston sports.

Kelsey Hough

Kelsey was raised on sports and fitness. Growing up she played softball and took dance lessons (everything from ballet to jazz to Polynesian). Kelsey and her dad bonded over sports – and she’s turned that enthusiasm into a career with the Timbers FC.
Kelsey loves a killer leg series and to challenge her classes to outperform themselves. Don’t mess with Kelsey. Not only is she a brainiac who is good at math but she’s also a Double Duck, with a B.A. in Business Admin and an MBA from U of O.

Abigail Parker

Abigail enrolled in dance lessons at an early age to "use up” her “extra energy." After several years of training, she went on to dance professionally. Her fascination with how fitness could help people reach their maximum potential led Abigail to put her talents to work at Firebrand.
Abigail is driven by a desire to not only improve herself, but inspire others to do the same - no matter what obstacles may stand in the way. When she’s stressed, Abigail finds healing in nature. She also hopes to find it soon in a Husky puppy! 

Christy Acuna

Christy is a one-woman fitness show. A Division 1 college athlete with a degree in Nutrition and Exercise Science from OSU, Christy was a wellness director, managed fitness studios and gyms and founded kids-themed bike events. But her real passion is working with people – and working out!
Christy specializes in helping you succeed no matter where you start on your fitness journey. She won’t quit on you and won’t let you quit! This wood-worker has never tasted ketchup, cuts her hair only on a full moon and raised goats growing up.

Johnna Buchanan

From a small town in Oklahoma, Johnna has always been drawn to movement. She started in cheer and gymnastics and discovered yoga in college, which drew her to group fitness, where she’s taught Barre3 and reformer and mat Pilates. Johnna believes that movement empowers and creates a community in her classes that is inclusive, energetic and empathetic. Expect music-driven movements that are fluid and make you feel sexy as hell!

When she’s not helping you discover the magic of a strong pelvic floor, Johnna’s slinging wine for a local distributor, cooking and spending time with her labradoodle, Winston Churchill.

We utilize the revolutionary Lagree Fitness Method to target the entire body but dedicate 25 minutes of this 45-minute class to rocking your abs with all the signature core moves, plank variations and oblique twisting you love to hate and to strengthening your lower back. We’ll sprinkle in a little legs and some arms to round out the class. You’ll shred your six-pack, get your obliques on fleek and also strengthen your core to increase balance and improve posture. It’s perfect to add to your weekly routine to ensure a well-rounded, ever-changing, effective challenge.

The Lagree Fitness Method is a high-intensity, low-impact game-changer that fuses the intensity of Crossfit with the precision of Pilates to deliver the most effective and complete workout in the shortest amount of time.

Classes take place on the M3K+ Megaformer and require that participants wear gripped socks and remove their rings.
