Roughly 85% of New Year's resolutions never make it past the hypothetical phase, according to an unfinished study that was abandoned in early February. Firm your core with today's Groupon: for $40, you get four Reformer Pilates classes at ArtForm Studio in Mission Viejo (up to a $125 value). These one-hour classes train students on the Pilates Allegro Reformer, a machine that expands the repertoire of lengthening and strengthening exercises possible in a Pilates workout. By limiting class size to six students, ArtForm ensures personal attention, workouts customized to each student's fitness level, and less dangerous games of musical chairs. The class schedule caters to all experience levels; customers new to Pilates will get one evaluation session before joining a group for three additional classes.
ArtForm Pilates earned top-two Best Pilates Studio or better honors for three straight years on CityVoter's Orange County Hot List with 1st Place in 2008, and 2nd Place in 2009 and 2010, and more than 630 Facebookers like it.
Between the two of them, Viktor and Kelly Uygan have more than 25 years of experience in two disciplines that require intense conditioning: personal training and professional ballet. So perhaps it's not surprising that at Konnect Pilates, the fitness studio they opened in 2002, they emphasize physically challenging routines that push clients to tone their physiques. Often these routines incorporate special equipment, such as Reformers and Pilates chairs, though some classes simply take place on a Pilates mat. The studio also offers Teacher Training courses where students can pursue certification at their own pace, with classes offered year round.
