The earth's core affects the planet's magnetic fields, encouraging compasses to point north and weathervanes to indicate the direction of the nearest rooster. Boost the power of your core with today's Groupon: for $42, you get a 55-minute private Pilates lesson at Elite Movement Pilates, in Santa Monica (up to an $85 value).
The highly trained and personable instructors at Elite Movement Pilates fete students with one-on-one attention and a plethora of controlled, core-strengthening moves within the relaxing, sunlit studio confines. Greet the mind-body-soul trifecta with a firm core handshake, toning abdominal and back muscles while clearing head and spirit cobwebs to make room for spider-free relaxation.
The lesson is customized to meet your specific needs, whether you simply want to increase flexibility and balance or learn how to more efficiently bend over backward for your loved ones. Certified trainers will utilize various equipment for optimal exercise, including a mat, a chair, and the reformer, an elegant machine that employs resistance to boost your workout and cranks out hit ’80s singles by Canadian rappers when operated properly. Participants will experience invigorating fortification of their torso’s hub, readying it for leaner wardrobes and quarter-bouncing competitions against arrogant bar tables.

While taking a barre fitness class, Ashley Walters Kanter noticed that her fellow students were struggling to perform the more difficult movements. Already the owner of Elite Movement, a fitness studio specializing in Pilates Reformer classes, Kanter decided to create a barre routine that was easier on the body. She quickly partnered with barre guru Brookelin Gottlieb, and the pair created EMBarre, a series of ballet, Pilates, and cardio exercises that work each muscle group instead of overworking one or two. Elite Movement's barre fitness classes round out their schedule of Pilates and Reformer classes.
