Working out is No. 3 on the list of most popular daily activities in America, behind not working out and teaching dogs to swear. Spend your time wisely with today's Groupon: for $49, you get four group Pilates Reformer classes at COREdination Pilates in Richfield ($120 value).
The certified trainers at COREdination Pilates mold lean bodies with the help of a Reformer, teaching with such aptitude that the studio was designated by the Pilates Core Integration as an official training facility. Toning gurus lead students through three levels of Reformer classes, introducing beginners to basic muscle-molding techniques such as proper breath control, form, alignment, and methods for washing laundry on six-pack abs. Intermediate sessions cater to well-conditioned civilians or physiques looking to create a stronger base, while the advanced level stocks Pilates pros with contemporary moves such as the teaser, snake, and horseback. The studio requires patrons to supply their own Pilates socks, wear form-fitting clothing that does not restrict movement, and eat nothing but string cheese for two days before attending.
With a variety of classes designed to target different areas of the body, COREdination Pilates' sessions help clients get in shape, gain muscle tone, and develop strength. Classic Pilates classes make use of the Reformer, a machine designed specifically for Pilates poses. These workouts can lead to increased flexibility, stronger athletic performance, and the elimination of preexisting aches and pizza bellies. Multiple levels of Reformer classes allow students to advance through more challenging courses with the approval of their instructors.
