Slow. Steady. Strong.

About Pace

Our name is a play on the actual “Pace” of the workout. The slow and steady movement of your slow twitch muscle fibers under variable tension creates a larger calorie burn overall and makes it the most effective and intense low impact workout on the market. The SLOWER you go the STRONGER you actually become.

Our trainers are certified in the Lagree Method as well as trained by our in house Functional Movement Expert on safe and correct body mechanics. We pride ourselves in being a place you can trust to get a safe and effective workout no matter what your limitations. There are often two instructors per class ready to help beginners feel confident in their form and advanced students take it to the next level.

A Note from Cara

Pace is my professional dream come true! After years of managing, teaching, and training in the Atlanta fitness community I finally have had the chance to own my own studio. I chose to open a Lagree Fitness studio because I am passionate about training for LIFE. Pilates was one of my first certifications in the fitness industry after having had two of my children and wanting to know how to regain core strength for the long haul. I am a firm believer in form, safety, and an intense workout and found a way to bring them all together at Pace! My hope is that clients will trust us to provide a great workout, friendly atmosphere, and a place to come to meet their goals for being strong for everything else they do in their busy lives.

Thanks for the support!
