Lagree 45 :: Arms + Abs 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.

Elizabeth Brandimore

Elizabeth has been in love with fitness ever since she was a 15 year old swim instructor in Fort Collins, Colorado. You'll most likely find Beth on the greens, on the trails or looking for the best taco in town. She owned NW Pilates studio in the Pearl for over a decade where she made lifelong friendships and turned out quite a few instructors as a master trainer. But nothing has been more challenging then transitioning to the Lagree Fitness Method and the Megaformer where she is excited to bring her milkshake to the yard.

Beth is kind of a rockstar who really knows what she is doing, having taught three Olympic athletes and focusing on form and bringing her deep knowledge of the body and proper movement every damn time. Next time you are in class, ask her why her nickname is “Frank the Tank.”

Skye Stouber

Skye is a professional ballet dancer with extensive training in Stott and Peak Pilates, Gyrotonic Method and, now, the Lagree Fitness Method. Skye trained with Houston Ballet and San Francisco Ballet before beginning his professional career with Oregon Ballet Theater in the Summer of 2018.

Skye’s musicality sets his class apart from the others. An avid Liverpool FC, Trail Blazers and Timbers supporter, Skye enjoys watching games as well as making philosophical comparisons between dance, fitness and sports. If you want to be holding plank all class, trying talking to Skye before class about the Los Angeles Lakers!

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.

Kayla Bell

Kayla’s all about fitness that makes you feel good! Playing soccer at the collegiate level sparked her love for all things group fitness and coaching soccer ignited her fire for teaching fitness. It also doesn’t hurt that she grew up with a personal trainer for a father!

Kayla loves the energy and support group fitness brings, particularly knowing that you are not alone and someone else woke up as the ass-crack of dawn to sweat too! Kayla’s a proud dog mom and has way more fun playing catch than her dog, Buffy, does. Be warned: Kayla’s energy can be contagious!

Sheila Zook

Bio coming soon!

Whitney Button

Portland native Whitney loves to see Firebrand clients sweat and smile (ideally simultaneously!). Her devotion to Lagree Fitness started in 2011 while she was living in Los Angeles and attending law school. And she has continued to tout the method's ability to combine body awareness, toning, and that cardio heat ever since!

Whitney's fitness past is varied and includes synchronized swimming, modern dance, yoga, and (of course) Lagree. She also loves a good cardio machine (hello stair climber!) and hikes. When she's not in the studio or at her day job, she is probably with family and friends, eating significantly greater than average amounts of popcorn, out walking her rescue terrier and shih tzu or talking about her rescue terrier and shih tzu.

Cari Spinnler

Cari is a Portland native who moved to England, then ran away to the east coast, before coming back to her roots. She graduated from Rutgers with a BFA in acting and since college has acted all over town. She is now a producer and director at a creative agency and one day she will be the female Spielberg/Anderson/Kubrick/Scorsese this world needs.

In the meantime, you can catch Cari hanging out at the River Pig (against her better judgment!). Cari’s extensive barre background and NASM certification show the girl has skills, but her commitment to heavy pushing squats for the booty gains and moving on that beat drop set her class apart.

We utilize the revolutionary Lagree Fitness Method to target the entire body but dedicate 25 minutes of this 45-minute class to getting your heart rate pumping with the signature core moves, plank variations and oblique twisting you love to hate, along with arm isolations to strengthen and sculpt the upper body. We’ll sprinkle in a few lower body movements to round it out. Great for when your legs are hungover or 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.
