Lagree Fitness is done on a machine called the Megaformer, which is designed with straps, pulleys and springs to add strength training and resistance to your typical Pilates movement.

If you're working out on hardwood floor, grab gliding discs, towels, an old tank top or whatever will help you glide with little friction. If you're on carpet, paper plates work great.
