Lisa G.

Level 3 Master Trainer & Co-Owner

Lisa’s road to a holistic lifestyle began in 1998 when activity and health became deeply ingrained in her daily ritual. Today, she studies nutrition and herbology and is dedicated to hiking, running, circuit training, yoga and spin. An integral part of her fitness practice is her commitment to Lagree, which she believes has provided her an incredible mixture of body awareness, and mental and physical strength. A natural energizer, Lisa takes her internal passion and applies it to everyone she works with. When she sees her clients thriving and transforming — while building the abs and booty of their dreams — her heart is full. High-energy, upbeat and designed to motivate, Lisa is a positive fitness trainer who values true connection with her clients. A Lagree-Certified Level 3 Master Trainer, Mad Dogg Spinning Instructor and professionally trained in TRX, Lisa is as challenging as she is inspiring.

Our Trainers

Meet our team of Lagree-certified trainers who practice Lagree as much as they teach it. They know the results a dedicated practice can bring, and they are eager to share it with you.

Eva

Eva

While pursuing a degree in theatre and acting, Eva’s interest in yoga grew as a way to support dance and movement training. She received her certification through Purple Yoga’s teacher training program and started working with Yoga Across America, bringing the practice to high school students. After taking her first Lagree class in 2015, everything changed. Eva fell in love with the megaformer, and decided to become a certified Lagree trainer that same year. Since then, she has taught the method at many different studios all around LA. From fitness to theatre, traveling and real estate, no matter how busy Eva is, she always creates room for Lagree and the positive effects it brings to her and her clients’ lives.
Rachel

Rachel

Rachel has been practicing the method for over seven years and has experienced life-changing results. She was on the megaformer every day throughout her pregnancy and attributes her post-baby physical and mental recovery to Lagree. Passionate about the method, her classes are upbeat, form-based, and focused on increasing strength through a mind and body connection. To begin or continue your personal fitness journey, join Rachel at Lagree213.
Karley

Karley

As a professional ballet dancer, Karley has trained all her life in ballet and being active has always been her lifestyle. During the COVID shutdown she was in search of a workout that delivers the same intensity and dopamine release she is accustomed to as a dancer. Luckily she discovered Lagree! She fell in love and dove deep into the method, taking class daily. As a trainer, Karley hopes to inspire others to take time for themselves by creating a weekly ritual. The most rewarding part of teaching for her is seeing others fall in love, feel themselves getting stronger and seeing clients bring friends to class to spread the Lagree love.
Michael

Michael

Michael is a Level 3 Lagree Certified Master Trainer and co-director of the Lagree213 Level 1 Certification program with Lisa Goldsman. A passionate educator, Michael brings decades of experience as a college professor, writer, and private voice teacher to his work as a Lagree fitness instructor and teacher trainer. He discovered Lagree at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic and began practicing almost daily at the Lagree213 outdoor studio. After years of practicing yoga and Pilates (in addition to triathlon and fitness training) he found the Lagree method to be so transformational—body, mind, and soul—that he jumped at the chance to become a certified trainer in 2021, and he taught regular classes at Lagree213 for several years before moving to Paris, France in 2024 as the lead Master Trainer for Lagree Fitness in Europe.
Kayla

Kayla

Kayla grew up in the midwest and has always led an active lifestyle. As a competitive dancer in her youth, she deeply understands and values the importance of good form. While on a vacation in Denver in 2015, Kayla discovered Lagree. She loved the method so much, she took a leap to become Lagree certified a year later. Kayla is known for her fun playlists, and loves to have a good time and "get our shake on". Kayla's favorite move is 5th lunge because she loves how quickly it sparks heat and shakes while pulling against the tension of the megaformer.
Kristin

Kristin

Kristin found her love of group fitness as the only 15-year-old in a sea of 30 and 40-year-olds at step classes at the YMCA in Corpus Christi, TX. She was hooked, and went on to teach cardio and fitness at the University of Virginia, and became a cycling instructor upon moving to the City of Angels, before stumbling into pilates reformer training. In addition to Lagree, Kristin is certified with MadDog Athletics, Schwinn, AFFA, the Equinox Pilates Program, TRX, and Inka suspension training. You may have heard her cough, mumble, or clap on a number of television shows, and she has written 4 middle grade holiday adventure chapter books. Her Lagree classes are not known for being easy; she is a stickler for form, and with both music and exercise, she likes to mix things up. She believes that although fitness may not cure all the world’s evils, it is a good place to start.
Liv

Liv

A New Yorker born and raised, Liv grew up a dancer. After establishing a professional dance career, she developed a debilitating eating disorder with aspects of exercise addiction. She came to California to attend treatment, and to gain her life and freedom back. It was in Los Angeles that she found Lagree and immediately fell in love with the unique method. Gradually growing out of love with dance but recognizing her innate ability to teach, she followed her passion for Lagree and became a certified trainer — and the rest is history. In love with the method, it’s everything she’s always wanted in a workout and is whole-heartedly excited about sharing it with others.
Lauren

Lauren

Lauren fell in love with the method over seven years ago. She earned her certification as she began her grad school journey. She is a full-time Registered Dietitian and loves subbing when her schedule allows. Lauren’s favorite things about teaching include connecting with clients beyond quick ‘hellos’ and ‘goodbyes’, and watching them become stronger. Don't worry, Lauren will always believe in balance — ice cream is approved… as long as it’s enjoyed after taking her class.
Hyesil

Hyesil

Hyesil is an East Coast gal from New York who moved to Los Angeles during the pandemic. As a fitness enthusiast, an active lifestyle has always been central to her routine, but Hyesil gained a greater understanding of the importance of strength from both a mental and physical perspective through Lagree. Realizing that working out is so much more than just a physical activity, she became a certified trainer in order to share her positive, healthy mindset and relationship with exercise with others.

Alec

Alec

Alec is a DTLA-based architect and artist whose only workout is Lagree. He believes so strongly in the effectiveness of the method for building more strength, increasing muscle tone and getting better cardio, that he decided to pursue trainer certification in 2022. His main goal as a trainer is to lead by example: he will challenge you to work hard towards reaching that satisfying threshold of mind and body transformation that he has discovered through Lagree. When he isn't designing, working out or teaching, Alec enjoys old-school activities like reading books and taking photos with a vintage camera.
Marisol

Marisol

Marisol fell in love with the Lagree method while in college. She knew then she wanted to teach one day, and a few years later she earned her Lagree Fitness certification. She enjoys lifting, running and boxing, but Lagree tops them all. During her class, you can expect to get a great workout and have fun while doing it. Marisol wants ALL fitness levels to feel welcome in her classes — she offers regression and progression options to meet you where you’re at! It brings her genuine joy to see her clients get stronger and stronger each class.
Megan

Megan

Megan was born and raised in Birmingham, Alabama but always dreamed of moving to California to pursue a career in fitness. After graduating with a degree in kinesiology from UAB, and establishing herself as a pilates instructor, Megan took the leap. She is now certified to teach yoga, barre, and Lagree, and loves empowering her clients to reach their fitness goals and have fun while doing it. In her spare time, Megan enjoys listening to music, hiking, and dancing.
Shiran

Shiran

Born in Israel and raised in LA, Shiran considers herself a Valley Girl at heart. Growing up in a family of Lakers fans ignited her passion for basketball and being active. For Shiran, being active is more than just exercise — it’s a way to spend time with people, to learn and understand the body and mind, and relieve the many stresses life brings, all while challenging yourself. Shiran loves all music, from old school hits to 90s hip hop and current dance/pop music. Expect her classes to be fun and test your limits. Shiran’s Lagree mantra is: “Don’t stop when it hurts, stop when you’re done. Keep it going! You got this!” Her favorite hobbies include: hiking, cuddling her dog, spending time with family… and Lagree! During the Summer, find her cycling or rollerblading 20+ miles down PCH.
Stephanie R

Stephanie R

Until she found Lagree in 2016, Stephanie grew up a star athlete but struggled in adulthood to find a workout she loved. She connected deeply with the method, seeing the positive impacts on both her physical and mental health. Stephanie believed so thoroughly in the method that she wanted to share her passion with others, so she earned her certification in 2022. Stephanie’s classes are challenging, but promise you’ll leave with a smile! Her personality and sense of humor shine through her routines and she loves seeing her clients improve with every class.
Stephanie L

Stephanie L

Stephanie began teaching Lagree in 2012. Her classes are high energy and filled with encouragement. Stephanie wants her clients to be the masters of their own body, so she maintains a heavy focus on the mind-body connection to create body awareness. You’ll notice her dancing through class while encouraging clients to get out of their comfort zones. Stephanie thrives on creating a space where clients can show up as their best selves. Her goal is to inspire each person to be their best and strongest self.
