Club Pilates owner Arielle Dumaw helms a staff of instructors, working to improve the mental, physical, and spiritual health of students. The robust seven-day schedule includes classes to acclimate exercisers to the fundamentals of Pilates, including spinal alignment, deep breathing, precision, flexibility, and controlled movements. Most class styles take place atop a specialized Pilates reformer machine, where students can sit, lie, stand, or hokey pokey while the moving carriage and springs of the apparatus resist each move for muscle-toning benefits. Higher-level reformer classes also incorporate the Pilates arc, spring board, and Exo chair, tools that help to chisel abs and strengthen the midsection. The Pilates Reformer Cardio Sculpt class interlaces blood-pumping jumping intervals on the machine with resistance-training exercises. Club Pilates also holds pregnancy- and injury-friendly versions of its traditional classes helmed by instructors who boast hundreds or thousands of hours of formal training.
Though Club Pilates sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About Club Pilates
Founder and CEO Allison Beardsley's passion for Pilates sparked after struggling to find exercise that would not aggravate her basketball-related ailments. The discovery that the efficient resistance moves helped her to develop a strong core without subjecting her joints to pain inspired her to spread the word of Pilates's benefits to others, which she does from 10 clean and sunny Club Pilates–studio locations. A team of certified instructors teaches the group classes, which are designed to strengthen, tighten, and tone the entire body. The staff leads students through controlled movements and breathing techniques performed on specialized Pilates machines, such as the Reformer, a Pilates ballet barre, and retired kitchen chairs. To ensure each patron can craft a well-rounded workout regimen that suits his or her needs, the studios offer stretching and sculpting classes that touch upon a variety of fitness modalities.
