THE KOMO DIFFERENCE
Individually, we are one drop.
Together, we are an ocean.
At KOMO, you don’t have to choose between fitness and life; you are welcome to have both.
We exist to empower, inspire, and cultivate growth in your pursuit to become better every day. When we come together and do hard things on purpose, we have the potential to make magic and move mountains within the walls of the studio, and in every other place we do life outside of it.
MEET OUR FOUNDER
I understand how it feels to fail at sticking to a consistent fitness routine.
That all ended after my first Megaformer class. We can lead you through one of the most effective and empowering workouts of your life that will keep you engaged for the long haul. Collectively, we’ve helped thousands of people build strong bodies, minds, and lives and we can do the same for you.
Mahalo for your support of KOMO Studio, a local, strong, woman-owned small business, where you are always welcome. I hope you love it here as much as we love you.

ABOUT THE LAGREE METHOD
KOMO brings you the intensity you want without the injury instigating momentum or impact on the joints common in other HIIT workouts. Our workout is done exclusively on the Megaformer and designed to build you (without breaking you) in less time.
Unlike most workouts, Lagree focuses on slow-twitch muscle fibers. These are your endurance muscles and they sculpt long and lean, not bulky. Reps on the Megaformer require a minimum of eight seconds without the use of momentum. Since most injuries take place when unexpected forces are encountered, Lagree places an equal emphasis on balance as it does on strength and flexibility. Balance exercises can both prevent and help you heal from injuries, chronic back pain, and other common issues.
Our classes are designed to push your muscles and your mind to the limit using your own bodyweight and the variable resistance of the Megaformer springs. You’ll perform supersets in each workout, made up of two or more sets of exercises that each target the same muscle group and take them to failure safely. We achieve this with time under tension (TUT) using slow, controlled movements. For comparison, it might take you 15-25 seconds to complete a set of 10 weightlifting reps in a regular gym; Lagree sets are a minimum of 1-2 minutes.
Lagree places a large emphasis on circuit training which means participants move quickly from one exercise to the next for a prescribed time limit. This allows participants to achieve both cardiovascular and strength benefits as the heart, lungs, and muscle groups respond synergistically to the demand.
Make no mistake, beyond the equipment shared in common, no two Lagree/Megaformer studios are alike. At KOMO, we bring a special kind of magic to the method can’t be found anywhere else but right here.
