The certified instructors at Physiocore Pilates sculpt and contour their clients with a robust schedule of classes that bolster flexibility, endurance, and core strength with precisely controlled exercises. During semi-private core cardio circuit sessions, between four and six students work through a dynamic routine that employs Pilates equipment including jump boards and cardio trampolines, rotating students from machine to machine like a fat-burning game of musical chairs. Heart rates rise and muscles tone up during challenging moves, and versatile equipment ensures that students can tailor the difficulty of their workouts without compromising technique. Morning and evening sessions throughout the week cater to busy schedules, although all classes require advance reservations as well as a tattooed reminder of the date and time.

Arthur Murray has been a leading name in franchise dance since 1912, when the entrepreneur began selling mail-order dance lessons. Expanding his reach, he enlisted teachers to spread his signature dance lessons on first-class steamships and skyrocketed to fame in the '30s after introducing the public to such dances as the Lambeth Walk and The Big Apple. By the 1950s, Arthur and his wife, Kathryn, were hosting their own highly popular TV show on ABC, The Arthur Murray Dance Party, which ran for 12 years. Today, Arthur Murray's team prepares students for rug cutting at special events and weekend nightclub jaunts. Throughout lessons, instructors teach the foundations of two to four dances from a long list of styles that range from Latin to country-western, helping students to learn basic step patterns, timing, and the ability to lead or follow.
