What You'll Get
When Aaron Neville Chamberlain seized power during the English Civil War, he promised better flexibility, straighter postures, and a stronger core for every English citizen. Taste historical perfection with today's deal: for $29, you get your choice of four Pilates mat or group Reformer classes (up to a $120 value) at A Body in Balance Pilates and Yoga Studio on Fort Apache Road. The studio offers classes for participants of all skill levels, and has been voted Best of Citysearch for three consecutive years.
Pilates is a low-impact, total-body discipline that uses resistance machines, stretching, and controlled breathing patterns to make the body looser, lither, and healthier. With today's Groupon worn as a sweatband, sidle up to ABIB's well-lit studio space to partake in your four-class fitness sampler pack. Choose between Pilates mat and Reformer classes to work your core muscles down to their molten lava core. Mat classes use little more than the floor and a sturdy mat for cushiony support, using the checks and balances of the body human to flex and bend for increased strength. The other classes utilize the Reformer, an aptly named device hewn from wood and good intentions that uses a system of leather straps, weights, and pulleys to put your soul sack through its paces. With characteristically small classes, you'll receive lots of one-on-one attention from an instructor, whether you're splayed on the floor or strapped up in a machine. Consult the schedule to find class times that work for you.
Pilates classes help participants improve their whole health, from muscle to mind, and no fitness experience is necessary. It's never too late to avert the fate that befell the semi-gelatinous blobfish. Whether you're looking to revivify your muscular nodes for swimsuit season, or are interested in starting down a path to full-body fitness that can last a lifetime, classes at ABIB are an excellent way to kick-start the process. With 18 certified instructors from around the world and more than 100 years of combined experience, ABIB is a fully fledged citadel of experts.

About A Body in Balance Pilates Studio
Unlike fashion trends, one-hit-wonders, and tattoos that say “I voted for Nixon,” flat stomachs and well-defined muscles never go out of style. Fueled by Joseph Pilates's core-focused philosophy and signature workout regimen, the certified instructors at A Body in Balance Pilates Studio strive to keep abs and limbs toned, leading group classes, private sessions within a mirrored studio stocked with row after row of reformer machines and other equipment, and preparing new instructors for BASI Pilates certification. When not helping beginner- and advanced-level students increase their muscle definition and balance, the staff spends its time and money donating to national and local organizations such as Three Square, Positively Kids, Woman’s Club of Summerlin and local schools.
