Pilates combines mental toughness with physical strength, much like solving a Sudoku puzzle engraved in stone. Fortify sinews and synapses with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get five Reformer, chair, or Gyrotonic tower classes at Pilates & Gyrotonic Jupiter in Jupiter (a $175 value).
The seasoned instructors at Pilates & Gyrotonic Jupiter guide students through machine-assisted Pilates exercises to sculpt limbs and fortify cores. Teeming with nearly 20 weekly classes, the studio’s schedule accommodates pupils of all fitness levels and short division abilities. At one-hour Pilates sessions, groups of up to six students explore Pilates Reformer machines and Wunda chairs, whose spring-fueled tension resists students’ moves to help build strength, balance, and flexibility during that day’s selection from hundreds of muscle-conditioning exercises in the Pilates repertoire. Like taking a carousel ride with a master chiropractor, Gyrtonic workouts revolve around circular movements that align the vertebrae. Weights and pulleys endow Gyrotonic towers with modifiable resistance that flattens abs and shields joints from impact.
