The fitness expert who designed Meghan Markle's favorite workout has revealed the secrets behind Meghan & # 39; s enviable physique.
Sebastein Lagree, founder of the famous Lagree fitness class, said the Duchess of Sussex, 37, is one of the stars who loved his regime because of the quick results.
The class sees participants using a machine that has a & # 39; megaformer bed & # 39; , originally adjusted from a Pilates reform bed, as well as weights, and performs a series of slow, multi-targeting exercises.
It is a favorite of celebrities such as Michelle Obama, Viola Davis, the Kardashians, Bella Throne and a series of Victoria Secret models.
Sebastein Lagree, founder of the celebrated Lagree fitness class, said Meghan (who goes to a class in Toronto in 2017 while filming Suits) is one of the stars who loved his training because of the fast results in the class. Meghan said the training & # 39; is definitely the best thing you can do for your body & # 39;

And it's not just women who come to class; famous male fans are Calvin Harris and Sacha Baron Cohen.
French-born Sebastien told Femail that he would like to see Prince Harry becomes a member of the new mother Meghan for her trainings.
& # 39; I suspect Meghan does it about three times a week, & # 39; he said. & # 39; She looks like she is very dedicated and I recommend two or three times a week.
& # 39; She goes to Studio Lagree in London and goes to Power Pilates in LA. Women love it because it is an elegant way to train.
& # 39; You do not answer; it's about strengthening and tightening and shaping your body, what you can tell Meghan has done. & # 39;
French-born Sebastien says he suspects Meghan to have a Lagree training & # 39; about three times a week & # 39; does, because & # 39; it seems like she is very dedicated & # 39;
Sebastein, who is a & # 39; torturer of the stars & # 39; is mentioned, he added that he would like Harry to continue with Meghan
Sebastein, who is a & # 39; torturer of the stars & # 39; was mentioned, Meghan was not a fan of his training until she told Women & # 39; s Health UK about it in 2017.
& # 39; It is without doubt the best thing you can do for your body & # 39 ;, said the then American actress.
& # 39; You keep coming back for different reasons: first off, your body changes immediately … give it two classes and you will see a difference; the people in the class are cool, unpretentious and motivating. & # 39;
& # 39; I found out with the rest of the world and it sent & # 39; n excitement around the Lagree community! & # 39; Sebastien told Femail.
& # 39; I brought people to me who said they wanted to look like Meghan.
& # 39; Meghan said you only have to go to class a few times to see a difference, and I think that's part of the call. & # 39;

& # 39; Kim and Khloe Kardashian and Sofia Vergara are doing it and they are curvy; it keeps you natural curves, but Meghan Markle and Jennifer Aniston are doing it and they are skinny, & Sebastien continued.
# It is adaptable to all fitness levels, so there is a big attraction – you can do anything you want on the machine.
& # 39; You can have someone who has been doing it for years alongside someone who is new. & # 39;
Sebastien, who has a background in bodybuilding, added that the class is great for new mothers and people who are pregnant, and he hopes Meghan will continue to train now that she has baby Archie.

& # 39; They are mainly women in the class, not many men, but I have built a machine for men & # 39 ;, he said.
& # 39; When I started, I advertised it as a Pilates lesson, which is a mistake. Over the years it has evolved and become better.
& # 39; I changed the name in 2012 because it actually has nothing to do with Pilates. & # 39;

Sharlene Greechan, a Lagree instructor from London, previously told Femail: & # 39; The Megaformer looks like a reformer, but it's not Pilates. It is classified as high-intensity strength training, but there is no impact.
& # 39; So unlike a HIIT (high intensity interval training) class, which is also high intensity, crashing and jumping, it is very good for your joints. You also receive cardiovascular training. You work non-stop for 45 minutes.
The sled has spring-loaded resistance and many of the exercises involve moving back and forth with a precise muscle group – say, your abs – in a moving plank. Up you come up, like an inverted V, and then down again, while driving the amazingly resistant car.
By working intensively on one muscle group at a time, Sharlene explained: & # 39; We activate the slow-twitch muscle fibers that form that long, lean muscle and make us really slim.
& # 39; But it's not so much about aesthetics. We focus on core health and on correcting posture. We also work very slowly, because the slower you move, the more effective it is. We focus on good form and that keeps you safe. & # 39;
The class burns up to 800 calories and your metabolism stays boosted for hours.
The training is loved by celebrities, including Sofia Veraga, who personally trains Sebastien. The star of the modern family has installed a bed in her home gym
Singer and actress Vanessa Hudgens is also a fan of the class; here she is shown swinging on a Megaformer bed
Sharlene added: & # 39; You get a smaller waist and a nice derriere, but more important is building a strong body that will take you through life. & # 39;
Meghan is not the only star who has spoken about her love for Lagree.
The Scarlett Johanssen trainer has already told you before The Hollywood Reporter that she mainly struggled with it when training for Endgame, despite being able to lift 16 stones.
& # 39; It's hard because most athletes usually work with repetitions and explosively, & # 39; Sebastien explained.
Desperate Housewives star Marcia Cross, known for her ornamental figure, is also a fan of the lessons
DJ and producer Calvin Harris, known for his incredible fitness transformation, is also often seen in classes
& # 39; When they lift, they only contract for a few seconds; if they have to keep a position of two minutes, you get an ace kicked & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Megaformer works because you can do so many exercises.
& # 39; I believe in the support advantage – the community is essential, if you want to change your body and your life – you need help!
& # 39; I always believe in the training buddy system – it makes the whole experience better. It is more muscle endurance than a Pilates workout. I would like Meghan & # 39; s husband to do it with her & # 39 ;.
