Like the framework of a mighty skyscraper, the core helps humans hold up the weight of the sky. Stay firm against the firmament with today's Groupon: for $49, you get five drop-in Proformer classes (a $125 value) at Sculpt Pilates Plus or Move Pilates Plus. Choose from the following locations: Sculpt Pilates Plus in Solana Beach, Sculpt Pilates Plus in Carlsbad, or Move Pilates Plus in North Park.
At Sculpt Pilates Plus and Move Pilates Plus, an arsenal of energetic instructors chisels cores and tones physiques with fully stocked facilities and intensive SPX fitness techniques. During 40-minute classes, professional flexers coach small groups of students as they send pulses surging and sinews stretching on specialized Pilates Proformer machines at the Solana Beach and North Park locations, and Megaformer machines at the Carlsbad location, both of which help to sculpt the upper and lower body, while reducing stress on joints, tissues, and overworked mats. The fast-paced, celebrity-approved fitness regimen melds cardio and strength training to firm up core muscles and loosen taut joints for increased flexibility, while boosting balance and torching calories by using the apparatus and the student's body weight for increased resistance.
Each of the studio's three locations boasts an eco-friendly studio space buttressed by bamboo flooring and cleaned with biodegradable solutions culled from plants that diligently recycle their soda cans. Students can select accommodating class times from the North Park schedule, the Solana Beach lineup, or the Carlsbad roster.
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.
