Pilates remains the most effective way to achieve the chiseled abs of a movie star, short of sitting bolt upright in bed after a nightmare for 20 takes at a time. Get into cinematic shape with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get three Pilates mat, cardio ball, or Zumba classes and one 30-minute private reformer lesson at Body Reformers in East Rockaway (a $94 value).
Amid its fully equipped studio of Peak Pilates equipment, Body Reformers sculpts muscles throughout the body while improving posture, mental awareness, and overall well-being. Feeble backs and sheepish hips benefit from the Pilates methodology, which focuses on strengthening muscles without manually pumping ounces of iron or hoisting mule after mule above one's head. During the one-hour mat classes, fully certified Pilates instructors guide classes of 12 students through exercises that flatten abdominals, tighten thighs, lift buttocks, and sharpen dull shoulder blades. The private reformer lesson further refines forms with one-on-one instruction.
Floorphobes can stay seated and get an endurance-boosting workout during the cardio ball class, or dance off their troubles and tenacious leeches with a Zumba class. Body Reformers schedules its classes throughout the week.
