KATRINA

KATRINA

LAGREE PILATES, SPIN, YOGA

In 2010, Katrina’s life changed, thanks to a little machine called the Megaformer. Prior to that year, she spent her spare time training and running half marathons, teaching yoga on paddleboards or putting in hours taking spin classes. But this machine could take strong muscles and fatigue them to the point of muscle failure; and she couldn’t be more excited!

Katrina became Lagree certified and has over 5 years of experience training men and women of all ages. She loves that the Megaformer provides a challenging workout to even the strongest of athletes, but is safe for any age or ability level. In her class, you can expect a fun and challenging workout, to the beat of new music and sing-along classics. You’ll sweat, you’ll shake, and you’ll leave more energized and relaxed then when you arrived.

When Katrina isn’t teaching, she’s eating! Katrina believes that food is meant to make us healthier, and she loves cooking and finding new ways to make nourishing foods taste delicious. Her motto is, “If I like you, I feed you!” So don’t be surprised if she offers you a little nibble of something after class

Dawn

Dawn

LAGREE PILATES

Dawn is a Long Beach local whose passion for Pilates Plus started when she joined the studio about 5 years ago. “For me it was the perfect balance between strength, flexibility, and cardio. I had never been a gym person, but after a few classes I was addicted.” Dawn believes the group format encourages you to push yourself with every workout. “I have seen the amazing results in both myself and those around me. That is motivation to get up in the morning and go to the studio.” Dawn’s passion for the workout led to her Lagree Fitness certification and teaching. You will see her both teaching and working out at the studio. “I won’t ask you to do anything I can not do!”

MAGGIE

MAGGIE

LAGREE PILATES

Maggie started working out at KP Pilates Plus in August 2018 after being inspired by a college
friend whose body had become leaner, stronger and more amazing after discovering (and
getting certified in) Lagree. Five months later, Maggie became certified herself and is excited to help others change their bodies – and their lives.

Maggie made Long Beach her home in late 2016. A former crime reporter in the Midwest, Maggie started working out years ago to deal with job stress. Her last role was a full-time journalist was as a fitness writer. Now, she runs her own content marketing, copywriting and public relations firm.

Despite years of weight training and cardio (and believing she was as fit as she was ever going to be), Maggie was blown away when Lagree gave her more results in two weeks than she had seen in a decade of spending hours at the gym. Lagree also has given her more drive, confidence and focus than ever before.

Maggie is overseeing KP’s marketing, public relations and Facebook efforts and she helps Kelli
manage the studio. She is eager to share and promote the incredible physical and personal
successes that KP Pilates Plus has provided her.
