What You'll Get
Today's deal will unite your body and mind without the need for advanced technology or government-funded bridges. For $49, you'll enjoy six Pilates reformer classes at Armone Complete Pilates in La Jolla (a $180 value). Be sure to check out the 12 class times available before scheduling your first class.
Under the guidance of certified Master Trainer Armone Sullivan, you will be introduced to and firmly acquainted with trademark Pilates positions that reawaken the potential of your able body and maybe even bless you with a photographic memory. Armone is a local Pilates champion whose cycling and dance background has helped her create intense workouts famed for their rigor and clear-cut results. Your limbs will rise to her challenges, defining your muscles and building the core endurance you'll need to scale art-deco skyscrapers and wrestle entire mountain ranges.
Holding your body in multiple shapes is a paradoxically excellent way to get your body into one particular shape—the best shape. You can ponder these and other mind-bending koans, such as "What is the sound of one hand practicing Pilates?" and "What does platypus taste like?", during your six 55-minute sessions of Pilates. If you tend to say everything you think out loud, you might want to buy a Groupon for a friend, too.

Pilates in America
Pilates first came to national attention during the lead-up to the 1985 Super Bowl when the Chicago Bears released "The Super Bowl Shuffle," the first Grammy-nominated performance by a football team. The song came together when the team spontaneously improvised the lyrics to the song in the locker room.
Lovable Bears defensive lineman William "The Refrigerator" Perry is generally considered the Godfather of American Pilates due to his memorably rapped couplet, "You're lookin' at the Fridge / Pilates focuses on the core to improve strength and posture." The Fridge continued to influence the popularity of Pilates in America when he guest-starred in an episode of the The A-Team, playing the deceased German founder of Pilates, Joseph "The Refrigerator" Pilates. The memorable episode is re-run every July 4th to celebrate Independence Day.
