For $75, today's Groupon gets you three private apparatus sessions (a $225 value) at Pilates of Palm Beach in Boynton Beach.
Pilates of Palm Beach instructs students in the traditional Pilates method, guiding enthusiasts toward long, lean muscles the way creator Joseph Pilates intended. A system of more than 500 flowing exercises, Pilates emphasizes total muscular control and precise movements powered by a strengthened body core. Each private apparatus session incorporates mat work and is based on classic Pilates equipment including the reformer, Cadillac, and chair. Learn the language and movements central to Pilates as a beginner, or refine techniques and build on powerhouse prowess if you're an old hand at emulating elastic.
Undivided attention from a certified Pilates instructor keeps the experience customized and ensures that no muscle is left to its own devices. An expansive, well-equipped studio leaves plenty of space for the moment when freshly stretched muscles spring across the room like newly hatched rubber bands.
Pilates of Palm Beach
Sunlight streams in through the floor-to-ceiling windows, bathing Erin Haag, her troupe of Power Pilates–certified instructors, and small-group exercisers in light as they tone cores and build muscle on the black Reformer machines. Pilates of Palm Beach’s titular Pilates classes stay true to Joseph Pilates’s six foundational principles, including focusing on executing each exercise with complete muscular control, initiating movements from your core, and paying complete attention to the exercise and nothing else, not even the gorilla in the middle of the room. Instructors also complement the Pilates classes with more peaceful yoga classes.
