Four years ago this month, “Uptown Funk” was the number one song in the country.

Barack Obama was still president.

And KP Pilates Plus Long Beach opened its doors in downtown Long Beach.

It’s our studio’s fourth anniversary! A lot has changed since then, right? Some good, some bad, some interesting. We are celebrating our anniversary by looking back, giving back moving forward.

Everyone at KP is grateful for our amazing clients. We’ve watched many of you literally transform before our eyes the last four years! The Lagree Method changes you inside and out. It sculps your body, gives you confidence and – at least for one 50-minute class – allows you to completely focus on nothing but yourself.

We’re planning a lot of events this year; many will help local charitable organizations, like our recent Lydia House fundraiser! Thank you to everyone who donated. We ended up with overflowing boxes of clothes and goods, not to mention nearly $700 cash. The shelter folks were blown away by our clients’ generosity.

There’s more to come. We are planning to do more for charity –  and host more social events. Speakers, wine tastings, workshops, to name a few. Stay tuned!

If you have ideas for other events, let Kelli or Maggie know. It’s going to be a great year. And here’s the deal, you guys: Commit to the KP Lagree Method and getting older will make you stronger, leaner, more confident and happier.

Happy Anniversary not just to us – to all of you. We wouldn’t be here without the awesome women and men who dedicate themselves to this workout week after week, month after month, year after year.

XO!

Strength in numbers.

Cliché? Yes.

True? Also yes.

A study published in the Journal of Social Sciences found that people are drawn to the healthy behaviors of people around them – including the women and men they work out with.

In other words, getting fit in a pack works.

Ask anyone who reserves a class at KP Pilates Plus and they’ll tell you: the Lagree method is the toughest workout around. It’s the most effective. And it’s the most rewarding, especially since you’re in close proximity to other nine people who are also working hard to completely change and sculpt their bodies. We support and encourage each other in every single class with the help of our awesome certified Lagree Fitness instructors.

Those are some really cool things. And, for 30 days, we’re taking those feelings of community and camaraderie a step further.

Join us for the KP Pilates Plus third Annual Mega Strong Challenge. Between Friday, Feb. 1 and Saturday, March 2, we challenge you to complete 20 Lagree Megaformer workouts in 30 days.

That is five days a week for 30 days. Seriously.

What’s more, if you join the challenge you’ll give up alcohol, sugar, grains, dairy and soy for a month as embrace the renown Whole30 nutrition plan. The idea of the 30-day food program is to eliminate unhealthy cravings like sweets, caffeine and booze to restore a healthy metabolism, heal the digestive tract and balance the immune system.

Sign up in the studio, where you also can pick up copies of the Whole30 meal plans. They include options for carnivores, vegetarians and vegans.

Everyone at KP wants you to get healthy and in shape for spring by committing to the Lagree method and Whole30 to give your body a much-needed, healthy reset.

What’s more, we’ll do it together. Everyone who completes 20 classes next month is automatically registered to win awesome prizes – including a free month of classes. The KP Mega Strong Challenge lets you set your own goals and push your peers to succeed as well. We’ll all track how many times we come class on a chalkboard at the studio.

You can do anything for a month. Including this.

See you Feb. 1.

Lagree Fitness isn’t cheap. But like many things that cost a little more, it’s worth it.

Ever notice how different your feet feel when you’re walking down the street in a pair of heels you bought for $30 verses a pair that cost you a couple of hundred, if not more?

The less expensive shoes seem okay at first – but then excruciating pain sets in. You’ve gone from feeling glamorous to suffering from pinched toes and screaming arches. It is all you can do to hobble to your car so you can take them off and drive home barefoot.

The pricier, higher-quality heels, meanwhile, are comfortable and support your feet. You can dance all night in a pair of well-made shoes. They are an investment that will benefit you for years to come.

The same applies to fitness.

There are plenty of $10-a-month gym memberships around – but what do you really get out of it? There is no guidance; nobody explaining proper form to prevent injuries. And there certainly isn’t anyone around to encourage you to work hard, test your limits and never, ever give up so that you ultimately build muscle, shed fat and improve your overall health.

You see a lot of people leaving such places with bodies that look the same as they did the day they joined, which is often years before.

Lagree Fitness – offered in Long Beach exclusively at KP Pilates Plus – makes users lean, long, strong and sleek, with noticeable results in just a few short weeks. Those who buy a membership and commit to the Pilates-inspired workout can transform themselves into the person they have always wanted to be, inside and out.

Women and men of all ages and fitness levels benefit from Lagree.

“I have a client who now has the sculpted body she had been trying to achieve in 10 years of lifting weights and doing cardio at a traditional gym,” says Kelli Parsley, owner of KP Pilates Plus. “By the time she came into the studio, she was close to giving up. Lagree has given her fast results that she had started to believe were out of her reach.”

KP Pilates Plus has many different pricing options. If you buy a bigger class package, or a monthly unlimited package and attend regularly, you’ll end up saving money and bringing your overall price per class down.

With the average bypass surgery costing as much as $117,000 and the average back surgery starting at $100,000 – you really can’t put a price tag on your current and long-term health. It’s the most important investment you’ll ever make.

Get in shape. We can help.
