Leah Sarago began creating the core exercises of Ballet Body® in 2004 after completing a rigorous traditional weight training program while training at a body building fitness studio. With her Exercise Science background, she offered herself to all forms of training. She performed this traditional weight training program for six months continually building a bulky, overly muscular physique. Leah, a dancer all her life, preferred her body to look elegant, elongated, and lean. At this time, there was little research supporting body weight resistance or muscle-lengthening techniques. Leah became a forerunner in developing exercise techniques to lengthen the muscles. Leah completely changed her training regimen applying principles grounded in physiological principles with her background in dance training to formulate exercises centered in body-weight resistance and muscle-elongating techniques. Leah began to quickly see length in her muscles and slimming results after working her body through this fusion of ballet, pilates, yoga and dance-inspired routines. After successfully re-shaping her physique similar to a dancer’s body, Leah implemented this training system with her clients who wanted a long and lean physique utilizing only a ballet barre, yoga mat, and hand weights.

The results were phenomenal including sleek, defined muscles without bulk, inches lost, and complete physique-lengthening benefits. Ballet Body® began with a few key exercises and now has developed into an entire workout system of strengthening and lengthening exercises helping men and women achieve the phenomenal muscle elongation transformation.
