In the Victorian era, people made their cores look tight by wearing corsets, which doubled as bulletproof vests during pistol duels. Strengthen your core until it's naturally impervious to bullets instead with today's Groupon for H.Y.P. Studios, at either of their locations in Wellesley and Needham. Choose between the following options:

H.Y.P. offers a clean, peaceful environment in which to tone muscles and decompress minds by providing top of the line equipment and facilities. Forming lean muscles without building shirt-shredding bulk, the Pilates equipment classes feature small populations and use specialized Stott apparatuses. The hot yoga studio is designed to inject heat over 90 degrees directly into muscles, while also directing fresh air flow; the floors are made of antimicrobial material that prevents germs and souls of yogis past from building up between floorboards. Check out the extensive class schedule to plan your mass-melting regimen.

The noises and stressors of the day melt away as students find peace and quiet inside H.Y.P. Studio’s intimate workout areas. Small groups of no more than five participants gather for Pilates classes that use specialized equipment to build lithe muscles and abdominal strength. BarSculpt classes incorporate mats, weights, bands, and ballet barres to create a low-impact workout that targets fat in common problem areas along the legs, arms, and torso. Inside the yoga studios, a custom-designed heating system maintains an ideal balance of heat, humidity, and fresh oxygen, and the floors are constructed out of an antimicrobial material that prevents germs and charkas from getting trapped under the surface. Classes are held from as early as 5:45 a.m. to as late as 7.45 p.m., and students can use private shower and changing areas to get ready before and after sessions.
