Pilates was popularized by '80s water-sliding competitions, where athletes relied on muscle control to conquer half-pipes riddled with trap doors that led to a pool filled with kitty litter and discarded Teddy Ruxpins. Give a chlorine-soaked salute to these athletes of yesteryear with today's Groupon: for $59, you get 10 mat Pilates classes at Jen McWalters Studio (a $120 value) in Hope Artiste Village.
Mat Pilates classes mix timeless movements with the enigmatic vortex of fitness known only as the Magic Circle to keep Pilates pros on their toes in the 3,000 square foot space. Beginner classes are available for those who still experience enthusiastic, open-mouthed awe at the simplest of Pilates maneuvers. Check the schedule for class times; all classes are drop-in, so there's no need to register ahead of time. After 10 classes, your body will be as finely tuned as a fresh-out-of-the-factory What About Bob? pinball machine.
