Meet Your TRANSFORMERS
At Transform Fitness, our instructors are—quite literally—certified to kick your ass.
Jen has been active all her life, competing in running, skiing and cycling from a young age. It was only natural that she ended up pursuing a career in motivating others around her to be healthy and fit. As a personal trainer and group exercise instructor, Jen was always searching for new exercises and techniques to push her clients to achieve their goals.
“When I discovered The Megaformer and the Lagree Method, I knew I had found the perfect workout. The intensity and strength you build in just a 45 minute Megaformer class far surpasses any other 60 minute workout I’ve ever done. My body quickly became leaner, stronger and more efficient. I recently took 3 minutes off my best 10k race time and am looking forward to seeing how I perform at my next triathlon.”
Jen became so obsessed with the Lagree Method that she quickly became certified and knew that opening a Megaformer studio in Mountain View was the next transformation she had to make!
Nina first stumbled upon the Lagree Fitness Method in 2012 and after one session, she was completely hooked! Every session left her feeling stronger, empowered, and accomplished. She loves the fact that in just a short 45 minutes, the megaformer machine improves muscle strength, endurance, balance/flexibility, cardio, and body composition – all at once! When the opportunity came to become certified at Transform Fitness Studio, she couldn’t think of a better way to share her love of this workout with you, and help transform your body, mind, and spirit into the best version of yourself!
Nina comes from a non-traditional fitness background. By day, she works as a marketing professional in the tech industry and has an MBA from UCLA Anderson. She understands how difficult it is to carve out time to invest in one’s health. So, she’s committed to making her classes fun, supportive, and challenging. Nina believes in “Don’t wait until you reach your goal to be proud of yourself. Be proud of each step you take toward reaching that goal”. She will be your motivator, supporter, and cheerleader. After all, “the body achieves what the mind believes!”
Andrea is not your typical fitness instructor. She has always struggled with her weight, and during law school, reached nearly 200 pounds at just 5’2”. As an overweight couch potato who would rather eat than exercise, she barely made it through her first Lagree Fitness class – but found herself hooked on the Method and the life-changing results (ask to see her “before” photos!).
Andrea has been described as the “perfect combination of tough and warm”: in her class you can expect energy, humor, and plenty of personal attention to your form and progress. She loves to share her passion for Lagree Fitness with people at every level, from the most advanced to those who are brand new to fitness, since she intimately understands how hard the process can be.
Andrea looks forward to getting to know you and helping you reach your goals – mental, emotional, and physical.

Until Jessica found her way into a Lagree studio she was her orthopedic surgeon’s favorite client. Riddled with injuries from decades of competitive volleyball and basketball, she needed a no-impact way to gain back her strength. In just three short months of megaformer madness, her joints were transformed and she gave the surgeon’s knife a proper farewell donkey kick.
Jess was so enthusiastic about the magic of the Megaformer that she jumped (slowly and under constant tension;) at the chance to become Lagree certified and share her success with others. Try one of her famously formidable classes for yourself and you’ll be breaking barriers in no time!
Kat is a Bay Area born and raised California girl who loves to move. From yoga to indoor cycling to bootcamp to boxing and everything in between — there are truly many fun ways to move the body.

She came across the Lagree method on Instagram following studios in NYC and Los Angeles. Curious about the hype, Kat finally caved and stepped into Jen’s class at Transform. Though super challenging and quite literally hurting every nook & cranny, it was love at first Plank 2 Pike. Fast forward two years, Kat continues to spread her love for all things Lagree!

Like many others, she wanted to lose weight and get fit, but her usual cardio routine wasn’t cutting it.

The hardest part about Lagree is convincing your brain not to give up because “Your mind will quit a thousand times before your body will!”
