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 $60, you get seven weeks of beginner pilates classes at BodyMind Balance Pilates Studio (a $131 value).
BodyMind Balance Pilates Studio designs strength-building, muscle-stretching workout regimens with an eye toward functional fitness, conditioning bodies in ways that help them work and feel better in their everyday lives. A combination of mat work and exercises utilizing specialized equipment tightens tummies, tones muscle, and ups your posture, balance, and coordination quotients. Encompassing more than 500 exercises, Pilates workouts sidestep the overly repetitious repping that characterizes other training styles, such as circuit training or competitive blinking.
The seven-week introduction to Pilates course breaks the awkward silence between newcomers and seasoned benders by schooling novices in basic workout principles such as focused breathing and skeletal alignment. Instructors dedicate time to personalizing the fitness experience for students of all ages and fitness levels, answering questions and sharing wellness and lifestyle tips that help establish lifelong health habits. Interested parties can check out the schedule to make sure classes don't conflict with work, school, or outstanding rodeo-clown commitments.
