Thomas Edison declared that genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration, a fact he discovered while inventing the volcano. Work up a healthy sweat with today's Groupon: for $49, you get five drop-in Proformer machine classes at Sculpt Pilates Plus in Solana Beach or Move Pilates Plus in North Park (up to a $155 value).
Lauded as a "buzzworthy sweat spot" in 944 Magazine, Sculpt Pilates and Move Pilates Plus offer intense, full-fiber workouts using the latest in modern, muscle-molding machinery. Proformer classes employ a modified reformer apparatus adapted to the amped and ramped up kinetics of the SPX fitness program, elongating the body and targeting its magma-filled core. SPX, a favorite among celebrities such as Dancing with the Stars host Brooke Burke, combines Pilates resistance exercises with strength and cardiovascular combustion in intense 40-minute sessions set to infectious dance beats. SPX trainees tap every muscle group in the fitness pyramid, flexing vegetative fibers, burning fats, beefing up biceps, and toning wobbly spaghetti legs.
Training studios in both locations feature health-and-environmentally-friendly building materials such as bamboo flooring, as well as natural and hypoallergenic cleaning products to ensure a workout that leaves as small a mark on the planet and its pliable practitioners as possible. Classes at both locations are offered seven days a week, allowing you to customize a five-fold fitness attack that fits smoothly into your daily work, school, or snake charming routine.
Move Pilates Plus was a 944 magazine Editor's Pick, and Sculpt Pilates Plus was featured in Modern Luxury. Over 20 Yelpers give Sculpt Pilates Plus a five-star average, and 13 Yelpers give Move Pilates Plus SPX a four and a half star average.

Instructors never run out of steam at BODYROK. It’s their job to keep the atmosphere upbeat and encourage students to push through their demanding Sculpt and Cycle classes. The 40-minute Sculpt classes heighten the core-toning effects of Pilates with cardio exercises on individual Proformer machines. The Proformer's resistance can be adjusted to accommodate any fitness level so first-time students can follow the workout and veterans can continue to challenge themselves. In Cycle classes, students hop atop Scwhinn A.C. Performance Indoor Cycle Trainers that use magnets to generate resistance instead of forcing riders to pedal through tubs of yogurt. The two workouts collide in the 50-minute Sculpt and Cycle class as students hop from Proformers to Schwinns for a blend of lower body- and core-focused training.
