Strong cores distinguish good apples from bad ones, and habitable planets from blobs of intergalactic pudding. Stay strong with today's Groupon: for $45, you get three Pilates Reformer or Gyrotonic tower group classes (a $105 value) at Chelsea Movements.
Chelsea Movements’ motivated teachers channel unknown strength and flexibility with Pilates and Gyrotonic classes incorporating machine exercises. Instructors customize workout plans to each student based on overall health, preexisting injuries, and fear of muscles. Pilates classes use Reformers to tighten students' abs and limbs, and exercises on jump boards intersperse cardiovascular and flexibility work. The Gyrotonic tower combines pulleys with a movable platform, allowing students to work the upper body and arms in swimming-stroke-like exercises inspired by ballet, yoga, and fitness-minded mermaids. Both movement philosophies encourage toned physiques, reduced stress, and an increased range of motion. One-hour Pilates classes are offered every day of the week except Tuesdays, and Gyrotonic tower classes are held on Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m.
