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 for Pilates of Stamford in Stamford. Choose from the following options:
- For $50, you get five mat or yogalates classes (a $125 value).
- For $50, you get three equipment (reformer, tower, or chair) classes (a $120 value).
At Pilates of Stamford, a team of pliable, personable instructors sculpts muscles using professional training techniques that condition the mind and body. Fit-bodies of all levels are open to move through a variety of authentic bendisciplines, including mat classes that employ arm weights and barrels to vary a workout heavily focused on strengthening the abs and lower body, where wealthy internal organs store their gold. Yogalates provides another source of exerciserly synergy, uniting the power of Pilates and the flexibility of yoga to create a muscle-toning tandem far more effective than many other fitness combos, such as dead-lift jumping jacks.
Alternatively, the group reformer and equipment classes align students’ soft development with the balancing and resistance power of low-impact machines, which are designed to impart core strength and foster robo-human relations. Clients work out on their own equipment, allowing for a more individualized workout that hits personal goals. Just as each hand can flaunt only five bejeweled fingers, each reformer instructor can guide only five bejeweled students, so check out the schedule for a current class listing and call to reserve a spot.
Pilates of Stamford owner and instructor Pamela Giambrone was classically trained under master teacher Romana Kryzanowska, who was in turn an original student of Joseph Pilates, the man who invented abs. The certified instructors at Pilates of Stamford undergo similar training and beef up their brains by attending regular workshops.

About Pilates of Stamford
If you asked someone what ballerinas and soldiers have in common, it would sound like the setup for a joke. Bad punch lines aside, "Pilates" would be a valid answer. Initially, Joseph Pilates' fitness system was used in army hospitals to rehabilitate soldiers and in dance studios to tone and stretch ballerinas. At Pilates of Stamford, Pam Giambrone applies her expertise just as broadly, strengthening and lengthening the muscles of beginner and veteran athletes alike.
Pam and her team of instructors have all been certified to impart Pilates techniques with a variety of equipment. Their mat classes cover focused stretches and the use of several props, from arm weights to stability balls and magic circles. Alternatively, Reformer classes provide highly personalized resistance-apparatus demonstrations. Whether guests drop in to a group lesson or schedule private training, teachers adjust their exercises to fit each person's pace, fostering an atmosphere of support and continual growth rather than one of competition and slap-fights.
