Since their near-simultaneous invention in the 1930s, yoga and Pilates have been locked in the smiling ferocity of mortal frenemy combat, each vying for wellness superiority. Today's deal brings the two sides together and seals the pact with a massage. For $49, first-time clients get a two-class pass ($50) and one 60-minute Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR) massage ($60) at Focused Fitness, a $110 total value.
The center offers a few different classes, which your two-class pass entitles you to explore. Mix and match to create a flexible duet of springboard and YBR classes. For the uninitiated, YBR is a method that incorporates small balls of various sizes into a range of exercises. The balls help stretch muscles from tip to tail while focusing on specific areas. Check out the upcoming class schedule here. Pilates classes will help you build strength and tone without bulking up to action-figure proportions. The studio also offers mat, Yogalates, and Pilates classes led by certified Pilates instructors.
Recuperate from your relaxingly strenuous workouts with the included 60-minute YBR massage. This hands-on treatment is a re-limbering unlike any other. The process uses the spheres to knead and roll out muscles and kinks. One must undergo rigorous certification involving conquering prehistoric reptiles using nothing but YBR balls as ammo to earn the title of certified YBR massage practitioner. Focused Fitness's very own Emily has done just that, so you can rest assured that when you hit the table for an hour of bliss, your back is in good hands—and balls.
Both classes and massage must be used within four weeks of attending the first class.
