Building a sturdy core of toned abdominal muscles is one of many ways to maintain good posture, along with overstarching your T-shirts and sleeping inside an air vent. Get your head out of the ductwork with today's Groupon: for $49, you get five Pilates and fitness classes at Coreology Fitness in Rolling Hills Estates (up to a $135 value).
Coreology Fitness dedicates its fitness efforts to reshaping visitors of all skill levels with classes that enlist encouraging instruction as well as muscle-toning equipment. Heavily populating the studio's schedule, SPX Pilates sessions update the traditional Pilates regimen by introducing the Megaformer, a contraption of spring-resisted parts more intricate than a Swiss Army knife, though with fewer wine-drinking accessories. The 45-minute workout utilizes the machine for a series of challenging exercises that engage a host of muscle groups. Metabolisms skyrocket to hummingbird levels, and students steadily improve their strength, stamina, and flexibility over time. Waves of invigorating music fill the 60-minute Coreology cardio sessions as instructors incorporate kickboxing techniques, agility drills, and half-marathons into a pulse-hoisting workout, and Barre-ology introduces a ballet barre into a regimen of light resistance exercises, sculpting graceful, toned, and slender limbs to rival a New York City Ballet–caliber swan.
The team of knowledgeable trainers at Coreology Fitness sculpts bodies with a bevy of group classes designed to tone muscles and bolster endurance. Memberships to the studio grant access to any of the 45- to 60-minute sweat sessions. Boot-camp classes sling bodies through alternating intervals of cardio and strength training, fusing exercises from various fitness philosophies to build up burly frustration in muscles forced to constantly guess their next move. The studio’s exclusive Megaformer Pilates group class implements versatile Megaformer machines, which present a multitude of exercise possibilities and can be adjusted to accommodate any fitness level.
