Fit Buddha classes include Megaformer—a total-body session that focuses on increasing core strength, flexibility, and endurance. Each student is assigned to their own Megaformer, and classes are kept small to maximize individual attention. The high-intensity, low-impact exercises tone core muscles while ensuring a vigorous cardiovascular workout. Combo classes include 30 minutes of bionic Pilates on the Megaformer and 30 minutes of indoor cycling.
Aboard Schwinn AC Performance bikes, students pedal and perspire under the guidance of a MegaCycle instructor. Guests should bring a towel, water bottle, and cycling or athletic shoes to fuel cardio workouts with motivational music.

Today, you can find Marcus and Eva Kettles overseeing an array of Megaformer machines and a staff of trainers inside Fit Buddha's eastern-themed exercise zone, where guests bolster their bodies during signature Lagree Fitness classes–all without the burden of membership fees. Santa Barbara is appreciative, too; the studio won Santa Barbara Independent's Best of 2013 and 2014 in the Pilates studio category.
The 40-minute Lagree Fitness workout and its signature Megaformer machine draws from focused Pilates techniques, cardio drills, and strength training to create a full-body conditioning routine. By melding effective intensity, cardio, and endurance training while minimizing transition time, the Megaformer delivers a more complete workout than traditional Pilates. Energizing music syncs up with the class circuit, which can deviate from the Lagree Fitness formula to include stationary cycling and nonstationary naptime. The studio also houses wellness and nutrition centers that espouse the anti-aging benefits of infrared saunas alongside wholesome sips from protein shakes. Fit Buddha has also recently opened a second location in Ventura, which is one of the only locations in the area to offer Megaformer fitness classes.
