In each format you will increase flexibility, strength, core balance, endurance and cardio. You will feel better, happier, stronger, lighter and best of all have fun doing it! Below are more in depth descriptions and details of each format.


Shred

“Change is hardest at the beginning but gorgeous at the end”


At Metamorphosis, knowledgeable trainers & a heart pumping Pilates-inspired workout will take your mind & body to the point where change happens. We all desire change... we all crave transformation... and whether we are ready for it... we all NEED change! 

The Morph Shred workout is based on the principles of Pilates and combined with elements of circuit training. The workout incorporates strength, resistance & cardio which makes your Shred workouts efficient & effective! Shred will leave you drenched in sweat, burning fat & calories (up to 500-800 calories), with elongated muscles & improved endurance in a blink of an eye... only 45 minutes! 

Morph Shred classes use a modern Pilates reformer. You will move seamlessly & quickly from one exercise to the next to maintain a higher heart rate with intensity which ultimately burns calories & fat. The unique combination of Morph workouts which incorporates both strength and cardio training allows the body to move with an effective and greater intensity and low impact on the joints… you will quiver, you will sweat, you will have fun and you will Morph to be your absolute strongest version. Our motto is Be Extra, Do Morph!

*Shred is offered at all locations (Pasadena, Eagle Rock, and Los Feliz)

 

Run

“Practice is the hardest part of learning, and training is the essence of transformation”


Are you ready to say hello to a new you? A happier, stronger, more focused you? If you had the chance to live longer as this new you would you take the opportunity? If you exercise consistently you probably already know that working out makes you feel better... but there's nothing like a runner's high. Studies show that running for 30 minutes a day can improve your mood instantly and reduce the risk of diabetes, high blood pressure and some cancers. Running increases bone mass and even aids with age-related bone loss and helps with overall brain function as we age. 

The Morph Run program was designed to help you become fit, gain confidence and feel happier. Our running coaches will teach you about running form, breathing and all the sweet benefits of running! Each day will have a separate focus of either Endurance, Speed or Hill training so your body is gaining strength in different ways and your muscles are constantly being stimulated. We offer our hybrid *Run + Shred class which focus on 25 minutes of endurace, speedwork or hill work on our Woodway 4Front treadmills and 25 minutes of pilates-inspired strength training on our reformers, all in a single class session. The Woodway treads make you feel like your running on clouds due to their spring loaded track making it easy on your knees and joints. Pick your spot - you choose to run first or shred (pilates) first! Need more of a runner's high? Look for our *Run + Stretch class. In this class you will be coached to run for 40 minutes along with 10 minutes of stretching on the reformer. 

Morph Run classes are the medicine you need to help you feel less stressed, happier and burn 400-1000 calories per class. Run with us and improve the quality of your emotional, physical and mental life!
