Meet the Team

Kyra Huxel

Founder / Coach

After spending over a decade of ballet training with some of the country’s most elite programs, Kyra hung up her pointe shoes and jumped on a plane to Southeast Asia at 16 years old. From boxing on the beaches in Thailand to climbing the great wall, she discovered her love of travel, exploration and making new connections. Finding her way back to the States, Kyra landed in Jersey City, where she explored several careers before finding her passion for Real Estate. Six exciting years later, she found herself more and more enthralled with the world of fitness and, more specifically, her weekly Lagree Megaformer® classes. Kyra made the leap of faith to join the Lagree community of trainers, and soon joined a prominent Megaformer studio in the Metropolitan Area where she honed her skills and zeal for the Lagree Method. While her passion developed from the workout, teaching, and living, the Method became her own personal therapy. Now, her love of Jersey City and fitness come full circle to bringing the Lagree Method to the area. The innovation and evolution of the Lagree equipment has fueled her passion and has now become the soil to grow MEGA JC.


As a boutique fitness fiend, I am a lover of all things health and wellness but firmly believe a workout will always be more than the calories burned, or the weight lifted… It’s about experiencing something together, finding life balance through movement, pushing boundaries, and more importantly… having fun. MEGA is a place to feel welcome, challenged, immersed, and fully committed to yourself.

Louis Huxel

General Mascot

Louis joins MEGA after 13 years of working in private family security. Now residing in Jersey City, Louis brings to MEGA his quick stride, tenacious charm, and youthful presence. Specializing in the protection of ALL humans from any other species, Louis enjoys long walks by the Hudson River Waterfront, barking at runners outside (because they should be at MEGA), occasionally visiting his brother Duke down the shore, and of course working on his muscular endurance on the MEGAFORMER. Louis looks forward to supporting the MEGA community with barks of encouragement and helping everyone feel welcome.


Bark, ruff, yap-yap, bark.
