Like a good horror movie, a good exercise regimen shocks the body out of its lethargy, which is why so many personal trainers chase their clients on treadmills while brandishing anacondas. Get in less terrified shape with today’s Groupon: for $39, you get one month of unlimited Booty Barre and Reformer Pilates classes at Core Studios (a $299 value).
The highly trained instructors of Core Studios shower exercisers with individual attention, helping clients sculpt slim physiques with a kaleidoscope of small group classes. Basic Barre combines the pretzel-aping poses of yoga, the precise stretches of Pilates, and the graceful postures of ballet in one 55-minute class. Pilates purists can tone life vessels in Reformer classes that call on springs, pulleys, and ropes to strengthen and stretch muscles and let exercisers shed excess baggage faster than a bolt of lightning shot from a racecar. Check out the schedule for a listing of class times.
As sunlight streams through Core Studios' large square windows at 6 a.m., students are already dipping into deep stretches on their Reformer machines. Certified Pilates instructors work on all muscles with backgrounds in dance, physical therapy, and fitness guide them in the dawn’s light, adjusting their postures and askew sweatbands atop the glossy hardwood floor. Later in the day, the staff might add dumbbells and boot-camp drills to its new-age Pilates Equipment Classes, or suspend guests from TRX cords for resistance exercises.
