$29 for Three Pilates Group Reformer or Barre Classes ($60 Value)
Suitable for all fitness levels, Pilates builds core strength while increasing flexibility and balance. The addition of the reformer’s spring-based tension forges a deeper connection to the abdominal and lower-back muscles, enhancing the exercise’s effects on one’s flexibility and strength. Barre classes focus on the lower-half of bodies, toning legs, hips, and more. Click here to see the class schedule.
Pilates of Charleston
The staff at Pilates of Charleston believes that the cost of fitness classes should never prevent one from getting in shape—that’s why they cap the price of their group fitness classes at twenty dollars. In these classes, as well as in private sessions for one or two, they teach the art of Pilates. Created by Joseph Pilates, the practice strengthens the mind-body connection while chiseling the core. Dedicated practitioners report feeling taller, leaner, and stronger; other benefits include improved balance and endurance, both especially beneficial prior to running a tightrope marathon. Pilates of Charleston’s instructors also lead specialty-training workshops for pre- and postnatal students, as well as spine-corrector sessions to gently rehabilitate injuries. They round out their repertoire with barre classes—ballet-inspired toning sessions—and cardio-heavy jump board classes, which strengthen cores and shape legs in 45 minutes.
