"Get in shape" hovers near the top of many New Year's resolution lists, right next to "deal with raccoon infestation" and "figure out how raccoons get trapped in the TV." Stop watching so many TV shows starring raccoons with today's Groupon: for $30, you get a three-class pack of SPX Pilates classes at Boston Pilates Plus in Lexington (up to an $87 value).
The obsidian-sculpted instructors of Boston Pilates Plus chisel flagging physiques into well-toned muscle machines with a series of innovative, results-oriented exercises. Three SPX Pilates classes give bodies strength and elongation through a fusion of cardio, resistance training, and classic Pilates, obviating the necessity of monotonous workout such as the regular routine of tearing apart locomotives with your bare hands. By incorporating key principles of core stability and blending them with the science of muscle dynamics, 40-minute sessions of intense circuit training whittle away weakness and tone exterior aesthetics. Master your routine on the Megaformer, an advanced system of springs and pulleys that acts as a double shot of caffeine for your Pilates regimen. Adherents will discover a lithe and powerful anatomy, capable of scaling unending staircases and instilling the confidence to challenge Bigfoot to a thumb war.
Boston Pilates Plus brings you the brainchild of Sebastien Lagree, an intense fitness program designed around core stability and the fusion of muscle dynamics. Sport loose, comfortable clothes to class, grab a bottle of water, and prepare fists for demolishing exquisite yet unnecessary brick sculptures. Arrive early for the first class; call to schedule.
Boston Pilates Plus
Boston Pilates Plus's high-intensity fitness classes, designed by fitness guru Sebastien Lagree, combine the traditional principles of Pilates with strength and cardio training to help students of all abilities sculpt toned physiques. On the brightly lit studio's gleaming wood floors, students buff up their bods on Megaformer machines, which target the upper and lower body using a system of springs, pulleys, and a strategically out-of-reach donut dangling on a fishing line. Students tone their muscles as joints and connective tissue breathe easy in the fat-burning, low-impact classes. For a more cardio-centric routine, try the barre blast class, which guides students through a low-impact workout that blends cardio, barre stretches, and strength training. Boot camps similarly focus on cardio, meeting twice a week for four weeks to romp through 30 minutes of intense exercise.
