Before Pilates, people bolstered their cores with flying buttresses and impenetrable mithril cummerbunds. Teach your core to stand up for itself with today's Groupon: for $55, you get eight Pilates classes over eight weeks at Healthy Body Moves (a $135.60 value).
At Healthy Body Moves, certified Pilates instructor Karen Toth conditions intermediate and advanced Pilates practitioners to help them maintain flexibility, strength, and balance. Using traditional exercises developed by Joseph Pilates as well as her own holistic techniques, Toth leads students through a vigorous, intensive workout designed according to the central tenets of Pilates, such as centering, breathing, control, precision, and telekinesis. Toth's methods can increase students' mobility and mental focus, help them tighten and tone their chassis, and develop abs strong enough to lift a piano. Healthy Body Moves gears its classes toward students who already have some Pilates training.
