Core Evolution, Palm Beach County’s leading Lagree Fitness Studio, is expanding into the Wellington area. Set to open next month, the 1,750-square-foot, state-of-the-art space is located in the Woods Walk Plaza at State Road 7 and Lake Worth Road.
With space for 10 Megaformer machines for group classes, the studio will also include a separate room for one-on-one sessions. Expanding upon the traditional Lagree Fitness classes, Core Evolution Wellington will also include spin bikes, allowing clients to split their workout between cycling and the Megaformer.
It’s the third studio for 27-year-old owner and entrepreneur Marina Perrone, who also has locations in Palm Beach Gardens and Boca Raton. She said it was natural to expand here.
“We have been so thrilled at the success of Core Evolution to date, and we felt it was time to bring Lagree to another new community that loves health and fitness as much as we do,” Perrone said.
Perrone has teamed up with fellow fitness buff Stephanie Mordes, who is co-owner of the new location. With more than 15 years of experience in the health and wellness fields, teaching all formats of group fitness and cycling, Mordes learned the Lagree Method when she took classes at Core Evolution Palm Beach Gardens. She immediately knew she wanted to become an instructor and trained with Perrone to become certified.
When the opportunity to open a studio in the Wellington area arose, Mordes wanted to be involved.
“I’ve taught fitness classes in Wellington for many years, and I knew Core Evolution had to be introduced to this community,” Mordes said. “There’s such a passion for health and wellness here — and we also know that the Lagree Method is perfect for equestrians because of its focus on strength, core and stabilization, all of which are imperative to riding.”
Developed by celebrity fitness trainer Sebastien Lagree, the method uses amped up, high-energy body-sculpting moves, effectively combining strength, endurance, cardio, flexibility, core and balance training. Core Evolution Wellington can be found at 9835 Lake Worth Road, Suite 1. For more information, call (561) 345-4446 or visit www.coreevolutionpb.com.
