From Napoleon's great crab walk through Europe to J. Robert Oppenheimer's discovery of nuclear fission by kissing his own elbow, victory has always gone to the most flexible. Overpower enemies with today's Groupon: for $20, you get five mat Pilates, yoga, Zumba fitness, or dance classes at Core Studios in Prospect (a $65 value). Groupon buyers have two months to redeem the remaining classes once the first class has been used.
The classes at Core each offer a different style and philosophy of getting fit, flexy, and feeling fiendishly fine without the muscle-bulk from weightlifting or jarred joints from high-impact workouts. Mat Pilates strengthens the core and improves posture through stretching, fluid movements, and breathing control. Yoga takes you on a more-introspective fitness journey, clearing the mind and strengthening muscles with ancient postures and pose transitions. If you'd rather put some rhythm in your routine, try a Zumba dance-fitness class, which uses a controlled fusion of Latin dance and aerobics moves to detonate fat, sculpt the body, and irradiate every major muscle group with gamma awesome rays. For ballroom aficionados who want to learn, keep active on the dance floor, or catch Miss Scarlet with the rope, introductory and ballroom dance classes are available.
Core Studios' bright, modern facility and professionally experienced staff provide all the support, knowledge, and equipment needed to begin the journey to a healthier lifestyle or keep on truckin' with the one you have. Check out the schedule, grab today's Groupon, and bust a flex all over a rhythmic pose.
This Groupon is not valid for Pilates Reformer classes.
Core Pilates' staff of former ballet dancers, registered nurses, and physical therapists discovered Pilates in various ways, but having experienced its health benefits firsthand, they've joined forces to share their knowledge of the rehabilitative, low-impact exercise. Mat, reformer, and barre group classes tone cores seven days a week, and seasonal instruction in hoop fitness and VertiMax add new flavors to exercise routines. Serious practitioners can seek teacher certifications, which are spiced with a liberal helping of anatomy and medical science, essential for helping students recover from injuries from disastrously ambitious toe-touches.
