In the Victorian era, people made their cores look tight by wearing corsets, which doubled as bulletproof vests during pistol duels. Strengthen your core until it's naturally impervious to bullets instead with today's Groupon: for $30, you get five 55-minute mat classes at Pilates Central (a $67.50 value), a bright, friendly flexion studio in Westminster.
Pilates Central offers three levels of mat classes to accommodate physical-activity activists of all shapes and skill sets. Dedicated, professional instructors introduce novices to the basic principles of Pilates in beginner mat classes, helping them establish proper breathing, alignment, and pose-sequencing techniques. Intermediate classes translate the movements into complete, fluid workouts, whereas advanced classes up the fluid ante even further with expert-level exercises that produce sizable sweat puddles. Regardless of current fitness level, all students' workouts are custom-fit to their body, as mat classes trade cumbersome gym gadgetry for body-weight resistance exercises and shrink wrap.
Classes at Pilates Central are kept close-knit and intimate—limited to eight students—guaranteeing participants personal attention during their every exhale, extended limb, and exclamation about having an extra protein bar in their workout bag. To secure your spot in the small classes, check the weekly schedule online and call to register.
