It's a workout you can control at your own pace to get the most intense or safest workout depending on your preference. Strengthens, tightens and tones your body in as little as a month. Also check out www.sebastien.tv to get more info about sebastien and his workout.

Sebastien totally revamped the Pilates workout! He integrated elements not inherent to Pilates into a 40 minutes serious shirt drenching full body workout! Better yet, the workout is has NO impact on the joints and the spine!! His using his own equipment (patent pending) called the Proformer. The workout is intense and works multiple muscle at the same time without rest in between exercise. I used my calories burn watch and it said I burnt 500 calories in 40 minutes at a heart rate over 150 BPM. I was amazed. But watch out, Sebastien has licensed the workout to many studio and most do not train as intense as he does. So, if you want the real thing train with him at his West Hollywood location.
Like he says:" If you don't want a tighter ass (body), don't do this exercise! I love it.

Pilates Plus has really helped increase my strength, flexibility, and balance. Every workout is challenging: my legs and arms shake, and I always break out in a sweat but it's always a lot of fun. You may be sore for a couple of days

I've been going to Pilates Plus West Hollywood and taking Sebastien's classes for a few months and no other exercise program has more quickly and effectively changed the shape of my body - particularly my butt. You are working on reformer machines but in a class of 10 so it's almost like having personal Pilates but at a fraction of the cost. This gets RESULTS!

I've tried all the boot camp style workouts in the city and this is by far the best, combining pilates with resistence training. Way more fun that traditional pilates. Great instructors and great prices. Opening more locations including Santa Monica and Palm Springs. If you want a hot body this is the place to get it!

Message from Carrie's Pilates Plus

Pilates Plus is a combination of weight training and Pilates. It combines the best of both: the strengthening and toning benefits of weight training, and the lengthening and postural enhancing benefits of Pilates in a circuit training sequence to keep the heart rate up and burn extra calories. We incorporate such "old school" exercises as push up and lunges using the support of the Pro Former to eliminate the pressure on the joints and the spine .



Systeme Dynamique was developed by French Pilates instructor Sebastien LaGree, who's roster of clients include Nicole Kidman, Ben Stiller, Jeremy Piven, Rebecca, Romjin, Courtney Love, Denise Richards, Jewel, Jeanne Tripplehorn, Gabrielle Recce, Sheryl Crowe, Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, Laird Hamilton, Cheryl Miller and Elizabeth Hurley.
