In the Victorian era, people made their cores look tight by wearing corsets, which doubled as bulletproof vests during pistol duels. Strengthen your core until it's naturally impervious to bullets instead with today's Groupon: for $25, you get five mat Pilates, Zumba, TRX, yoga, or boot camp classes (a $65 value) at ABC Pilates in Laguna Niguel.
Named one of the top five best Pilates studios in the OC in 2008 and 2009 by CityVoters, ABC Pilates molds muscles and tones tendons with a variety of classes and techniques. Mat flow classes combine traditional mat work with free weights, bands, and stability balls, improving your ability to walk while holding a chest freezer overhead. Rubber band enthusiasts can try TRX, a suspension system designed to increase strength using your own body weight. Zumba is a cardio carnival that blends Latin rhythms and easy-to-follow moves to create a sweaty dance-off, and boot camp is an indoor/outdoor class that mixes cardio, body weight exercises, and interval and strength training. To build strength, flexibility, and balance while working the mind, take a yoga class.
Classes are offered in the morning, afternoon, and evening Monday through Thursday, as well as mornings on Friday and Saturday, and they can be mixed and matched to create a sippable fitness cocktail. Owner Amy Cady has been practicing Pilates for more than 10 years and is certified in Pilates and pre-/post-natal techniques.
