Now that your brain is a perfectly fierce muscle capable of performing feats of Greek division, it's time to turn your body into a well-honed brain chariot. With today's Groupon, $35 gets you six 30-minute gravity-training sessions from Body Dynamics, Inc., in Arlington, an $80 value. As a new student, your introductory session is free, and the five remaining sessions are valued at $16 each.
Gravity training uses a machine with a tilted gliding board, similar to a Pilates Reformer, to help you achieve a fat-burning, strength-building, low-intensity cardiovascular workout in 30 minutes, exactly as much time as it takes to for a pizza to sink in salt water. It increases flexibility, making it is a great complement to a Pilates program, but can also be used alone, away from Pilates' relentless fishing for compliments. For optimal results, three sessions per week are recommended. You'll come away from your six sessions seeing gravity for the myth that it is.
The highly skilled staff at Body Dynamics have undergone on-site residency programs to teach them how to teach you to do things you didn't know how to do before. Each class is limited to six people, so check the class schedule and call ahead to enroll, or to ask if it's okay to bring your own gravity from home.
The Arlington Chamber of Commerce called Body Dynamics one of Arlington’s “Best in Business”; NPR spoke with Body Dynamics president Jennifer Gamboa for a story on back pain, and the WUSA Channel 9 and Express Night Out have featured Body Dynamics and Gamboa.
