We have sought to co-operate at Reform Athletica with people we love, that inspire us or share our vision. We provide some background below on some of these people and the reasons why we support them
Reform Athletica will be offering its Pilates inspired Reform Method classes on the lastest Lagree Megaformer (the “Mega”). The Lagree Method is a multi-faceted workout that combines resistance training and cardio into one comprehensive, balanced system to strengthen, tighten, and tone the body. Balance is created by applying equal focus to all elements of exercise and never prioritizing one facet over another. We believe form is paramount and should always prevail over intensity.
Sebastien Lagree is the inventor of the method as well as the Mega. The method and the Mega work together in harmony, which sets Lagree apart from other fitness philosophies. The Lagree Fitness Method offers a unique twist on traditional exercises such as squats, lunges, planks, and pushups while combining those movements with exercises specific to the Mega.
Varying degrees of spring-based tension allow the Lagree Method to adjust to the user during use. This immediate adaptability creates a tailored experience that is unique to the student. Because of this, Lagree is the ideal method for all ages and fitness levels.
TRX is a form of suspension training that uses body weight exercises to develop strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. It requires the use of the TRX Suspension Trainer, a performance training tool that leverages gravity and the user's body weight to complete the exercises.

In 2010, Sarah Kauss launched S’well with the mission to rid the world of plastic water bottles. She believed that if a crave-worthy bottle that combined fashion with function was made, people would stop buying disposable bottles, and as a result reduce single-use plastic consumption worldwide. It was an audacious goal, but Sarah believed the world needed S’well. Seven years later, S’well is the fastest growing female-owned company in the US. S’well is making big differences by the amount of plastic they’re keeping out of landfills and our waterways.
Reform Athletica is equally passionate about minimizing its carbon footprint and asks its clients to support this mission by buying and using our own personalized S’well bottles and taking part in making a difference!
S’well’s ongoing mission is to create products that are both beautiful and eco-friendly, that infuse innovation with inspiration, and that continue to give back to communities in need.
Reform Athletica will be stocking its changing rooms with MALIN+GOETZ amenities.
MALIN+GOETZ was founded by Matthew Malin and Andrew Goetz in New York’s Chelsea neighbourhood in March 2004. Their mission was to create Simple Skincare Solutions. They make skincare easy, made to be both gentle and effective, for all skin types, women and men. They manufacture their products with other small, family-run businesses in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. Working with these loyal local partners, their mission statement has not changed: high quality at affordable prices, with an ever-decreasing carbon footprint. (MALIN+GOETZ) is made in the USA and does not test on animals.
Their local distributer, Apotheca Beauty, is responsible for bringing some of the best cosmetic and skincare brands to the region.
