Brooklyn Body Burn: Bringing The 'Pilates On Crack' Workout To The East Coast

by Naima Karp · March 18, 2013

SPX, a California workout trend started by Sebastian Lagree, is referred to as "pilates on crack." The exercise employs a method called SPX, which combines the benefits of strength training, Pilates training, and cardio. This gives you faster, more chiseled and toned results than the classic Pilates method, which modestly blushes in comparison. Lagree introduced the world to this technique in 2001 with the opening of his first SPX studio, but just recently, the trend has been catching on quick, and making its way all the way from California to New York, culminating in the birth of Brooklyn Body Burn.
