Regular exercise endows people with the ability to perform superhuman feats including straightening paperclips and opening stuck pickle jars. Hone your hidden strengths with today's Groupon: for $19, you get five drop-in classes at The Mind, Body & Soul Studio on Staten Island (a $50 value). All sessions must be completed within three months of the first class attended.
Energizing lime-green and purple walls pump up eager students as they delve into the studio's robust schedule of assorted fitness offerings. Piloxing sessions integrate boxing techniques into a Pilates-based workout, helping attendees build core strength and pay-per-view negotiation skills. Meanwhile, tai chi sessions calm clamoring neurons with serenity-inducing forays into the fitness world. For an up tempo workout, students can follow the sounds of speakers pulsing with Latin-influenced rhythms to Zumba and belly-dancing classes, which whisk students across wooden floors with the sure-footed grace of a centipede double-dutch champ.
