Mary Miller Lagree Fitness Instructor
After graduating with a degree in psychology from the University of Colorado, Boulder, Mary Miller met Lisa Hirsch — now owner and CEO of The Studio (MDR) — in a fitness class. “At 7 a.m. Friday mornings, we’d always be on the machines next to each other. We became friendly, and little did I know that she was in the process of opening her own studio,” Miller recalls.
In 2011, Miller became a certified instructor of the Lagree Fitness Method (don’t call it Pilates!) at The Studio (MDR) and has never looked back. After trying every type of workout, says Miller, “I loved how I felt afterwards. This one lengthens and strengthens, and is core-based, which will help you do anything you like to do.”
Miller also says that while it’s a highly intense workout that will make you sweat, “It’s slow and controlled, so you’ll never put extra pressure on your joints. It’s really leaned me out and has given me amazing posture.”
