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 $45, you get six classes at Club Pilates San Diego (up to a $96 value). Choose between the following locations: the original location on Morena Boulevard or the new studio on Alta Carmel Court.
The enthusiastic instructors at Club Pilates lead the charge against lethargy with a multifaceted approach that recognizes the value of variety when shaping fit forms. Equipped with numerous classes, several Reformer machines, springboards, and a ballet barre on-hand to aid core-building exercises, students can look and feel better in time for 10-year homeschool reunions. Never content with a single workout approach, Club Pilates builds schedules at both the Morena and Alta Carmel locations that revolve primarily around group Reformer workouts, while gradually increasing difficulty levels or adding in cardio and muscle-sculpting moves for experienced practitioners. Each studio boasts an airy exercise space, whose light-toned walls and natural wood floors reflect more sunlight than a suited knight chasing robot bandits across the Sahara.
Club Pilates also features discounted packages that must be used within shorter time frames; this Groupon, however, is valid for one year.
Club Pilates San Diego
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 her 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.
