More people than ever are living a sedentary lifestyle: waking up in their racecar beds, driving to work in their racecars, sitting for eight hours in the passenger seats of experimental racecars as men in lab coats slam them into concrete walls, and then driving home again. Race to fitness with today's Groupon: for $79, you get three reformer Pilates group classes at Mint Club Spa Retreat, valid at its Dupont location and its newest Downtown location (a $186 value).
Mint Club Spa Retreat's expert Pilates instructors lead core-fortifying, muscle-lengthening workouts in a small group atmosphere. Reformer Pilates fuses the foundational characteristics of mat exercises with the resistance benefits of the reformer apparatus, enabling a more dynamic workout and an increased number of potential exercises. In an intimate group atmosphere, exercisers will employ the resistance powers of the reformer's pulleys, springs, and bratty children for a full-body workout that helps to enhance the body’s control over its own movements. Building long, lean muscles and strengthening the core, Pilates also helps to boost the meat suit's posture, balance, flexibility, and coordination. Check online for updated class schedules; reformer classes are new at Mint's Downtown location and classes will be added in late March and early April.
