When Aaron Neville Chamberlain seized power during the English Civil War, he promised better flexibility, straighter postures, and a stronger core for every English citizen. Today’s Groupon gives you a chance to taste The Pilates Advantage's perfection of history: for $50, you get 10 Pilates mat, barre, or gyrokinesis classes (a $138 value) at The Pilates Advantage in Medina.
The Pilates Advantage's obsidian-sculpted staff tends to individual physical needs with routines designed to boost strength, flexibility, and endurance. Using props, such as foam rollers and stability balls, as well as gentle guidance from a team of fitness gurus, a schedule of classes tops out at six students per instructor for individualized attention, support, and a forum for demonstrating shirt-ripping muscle flexes. Those looking for a solid core workout can build a mighty midsection and shape lean muscles with Pilates mat classes, and fitness fanatics in the gyrokinesis sessions can focus on spiraling exercises that increase bodily circulation and promote proper spine and joint alignment. Meanwhile barre buffs can join either floor-barre or stretch-and-barre classes to tone their arms, hips, thighs, and back while relieving physical ailments of arthritis and alien-hand syndrome with ballet-inspired stretch moves.
The Pilates Advantage boasts a cozy studio filled with natural light and comfy carpeting. Classes are structured in a progressive manner, so skills build with each session until they can't be contained, resulting in random acts of Pilates and pirouettes in public places. Classes can accommodate 6-12 students depending on the class.
