A well-toned set of abs is often called a six-pack due to the six distinct muscles visible and the maximum amount of cans you can heave at it before its owner starts to cry. Shape up with this Groupon.

Pilates classes align the body along the spine, focusing on controlled, core-empowering movements in a basically flat plane. Gyrotonic classes complement this classic method of posture improvement by bringing the same principles of low-impact, body-aligning exercise into the three-dimensional plane, with machines that support the body through arches and curls. Instructors burn calories in the higher-energy booty-barre classes, which pair Pilates and yoga movements with a ballet barre while amping up speed and energy with upbeat music. The studio hosts classes seven days a week, with beginner-focused classes held Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
Mind 2 Body
Lani Pelino discovered Pilates as a means to help her condition her body for dancing as she studied at Ohio University. Later, during an apprenticeship with The Atlanta Ballet, she completed her Pilates' teacher certification and opened Mind 2 Body as a venue for students to build healthy, powerful muscles without risking injury. As she continued to teach, she incorporated yoga, gyrotonics, and ballet-barre-based exercise into her studio's repertoire.
Now, joined by a dozen other instructors, Lani inducts beginners into the gratifying world of exercise, helps long-term athletes improve their skills, and even certifies teachers looking to bring the workouts to their own students. Lit by sunbeams splashing through a large front window, her green studio honors the earth with organic cleaning equipment, reusable bamboo towels, and studio mats manufactured without the use of PVCs, chloride, or the labor of indentured squirrels.
