What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews | Core of the Matter
Make your core corier and your flexibility flexiful with today's Groupon. For $40, you get four classes at HardCore Pilates on Kirby (a $100 value). With this package, you'll strengthen and tone without beefing up, sync your mind and body, and improve flexibility in time for spring-break flexibility competitions.
The 60-minute courses boast cardio benefits and a focus on motion and flexibility to produce faster visible results than traditional Pilates classes. Small class sizes (four to six students on average) ensure extra attention from HardCore's expert instructors. View a complete class list here and call ahead to secure your spot.
Pilates allows you to build a rock-solid body without turning into Rocky. Strength comes through endurance and repetition rather than pumping pounds of kilograms of iron. Weak backs and flimsy core muscles benefit from the slow but steady regimen. By learning how to move your body using an efficient range of motion, you will leave your session walking taller and less prone to injuries not sustained from lightning. Perhaps the best benefit of all is the buddy-system-style workout built into Pilates. Your motivation comes externally, from cheerful instructors and friendly classmates, rather than from bitterly chanted mantras and tyrannical resolutions.
Classes take place Monday through Saturday as early as 5:30 a.m. and as late as 7:30 p.m., giving you plenty of opportunities to fit fitness into your busy schedule that includes working, eating meals, driving your children to daycare, driving the daycare teacher to daycare, and eating meals with your children as the daycare teacher watches from a neighboring table.
This Groupon is eligible for non-members only, and you must call ahead to schedule your class.

About HardCore Pilates
When champion long jumper Wayne Davis pulled a hamstring during the 2000 Olympic trials, he turned to Pilates to augment his recovery—and was instantly wooed by its therapeutic and athletic benefits. Today, together with fellow certified trainer Lauren Smith, Davis blends weight training, yoga, and traditional Pilates into classes at his studio, HardCore Pilates. Each Pilates class of eleven students includes exercises on an Allegro Reformer, whose roller- and spring-propelled platform helps strengthen torsos and straighten students’ posture. Rounding out its staff of all-star athletes, the studio also employs a former pro football player, who leads spin classes set to lively music and incisive play-by-play analysis. After class, one-on-one stretch therapy helps refresh muscles and connective tissues, relax joints, and expand range of motion.
