Like a good horror movie, a good exercise regimen shocks the body out of its lethargy, which is why so many personal trainers chase their clients on treadmills while brandishing anacondas. Get in less terrified shape with today’s Groupon to Core Studios. Choose between the following options:
- For $29, you get 10 Basic Booty Barre fitness classes (a $180 value).
- For $49, you get 20 Basic Booty Barre fitness classes (a $320 value).
The highly trained instructors at Core Studios shower exercisers with individual attention, helping clients to sculpt new, slimmer physiques in energetic small-group classes. Basic Booty Barre combines the pretzel-aping poses of yoga, the precise, core-bolstering stretches of Pilates, and the graceful postures of ballet into one 55-minute class. Capped class sizes ensure sufficient technique tweaking by instructors as students perform a new routine in each class, stifling the flames of boredom without forcing participants to tackle one another with fire blankets. Check out the schedule for class times.
As sunlight streams through Core Studios' large square windows at 6 a.m., students are already dipping into deep stretches on their Reformer machines. Certified Pilates instructors work on all muscles with backgrounds in dance, physical therapy, and fitness guide them in the dawn’s light, adjusting their postures and askew sweatbands atop the glossy hardwood floor. Later in the day, the staff might add dumbbells and boot-camp drills to its new-age Pilates Equipment Classes, or suspend guests from TRX cords for resistance exercises.
