Like apples, humans without solid cores lose their robust luster and end up buried in pie. Revel in the fruits of muscular labor with today's Groupon: for $25, you get two Joe's Tower Pilates classes (a $50 value) at Core Pilates in Bellevue. Joe's Tower classes are available Monday through Friday from 3 p.m.–3:50 p.m., 4 p.m.–4:50 p.m., 5:10 p.m.–6:00 p.m., 6:10 p.m.–7:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m.–7:50 p.m., and Saturdays from 12 p.m.–12:50 p.m. Class sizes are limited to four participants.
Under the tutelage of Core Pilates' highly qualified, marble-cut instructors, exercisers of all skill levels can strengthen their physiques with traditional Pilates maneuvers. Adhering to the principles of founder Joseph Pilates' innovative workout approach, each 50-minute Joe's Tower class (a $25/class value) incorporates mat-bound movements with the tower unit for a balanced sweat session. Friendly fitness doyens remain on hand to ensure proper alignment, machine usage, and grunting decibel levels.
Pilates apparatuses, including the tower, utilize springs to create muscle resistance, lengthening the sinewy fibers and improving flexibility for multi-limbed cooking. Within Core Pilates' mirrored, spacious studio, pupils focus on improving their core, posture, and body alignment, leaving life vehicles centered and less prone to injuries.
