What You'll Get
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 to Pilates classes at Pilates Connection in Gahanna. Choose between the following two deal options:
- For $45, you get 10 Pilates mat classes (a $100 value)
- For $100, you get a Meet Pilates solo reformer (equipment) package (a $200 value), which includes four one-on-one sessions with a certified instructor
A Power Pilates participating training center, Pilates Connection offers classic Pilates instruction from a staff of experienced and certified instructors. With 10 one-hour mat classes, you'll benefit from the inspiration of group training and the personal attention of your teacher, who is assessed annually for abdominal muscles that can subdue an adult ox. Conducted with nothing but a polished wood floor and a mat, the classes encompass the basics of Pilates, lay the foundation for lifelong strength, and prepare you for more advanced machine and resistance work. Should you choose to go solo, your Meet Pilates package affords you four private one-hour sessions on reformer equipment. Upon meeting your expert instructor, you'll forge an undying bond, much like a gosling that imprints on its mother for those fledgling moments of learning to fly and using avian Pilates equipment.
Open seven days a week, Pilates Connection offers a variety of class and scheduling options to accommodate clients shuttling back and forth between work, home, and Knitters Anonymous meetings. The airy studio requires covered feet and recommends tight socks with sticky pads to maintain the spic-and-span floors, as well as foot health and all-important body balance.

About Pilates Connection
Fueled by Joseph Pilates' belief that exercise should enhance and support the natural machinery of the human body, instructors lead students through a tapestry of intense, focused moves that draw from weight training, aerobics, yoga, and tai chi. In addition to leading group mat classes aimed at boosting core strength, they stock their hardwood studio with machines such as Cadillacs, ladder barrels, and reformers that rely on handles, ropes, and pulleys to heighten the workouts. The staffers offer semi-private and private lessons that focus exclusively on these reformer machines, which each face their own mirror so practitioners can perfect their poses and James Cagney impersonations simultaneously. To liven up the floor routines, they sometimes combine elements of TRX suspension training or ballet-barre workouts, both excellent complements to the intense core work of Pilates.
