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 group mat or yoga classes at Pilates Plus (a $75 value). Sessions start as early as 8:30 a.m. and are offered every day. View the online schedule for the group mat or yoga class of your choice.
Pilates Plus tones thighs, tautens hips, and tightens cores with a number of Pilates and yoga classes geared toward all skill levels. Each intense group class lasts 55 minutes and will give even diehard gym rats the faster-than-light results of Einstein's relativity-based workout regimens, minus the side effects of gravitational time dilation and unsightly space-time singularities. In addition, the health benefits of yoga are well known; regular practice increases strength and flexibility while eliminating stress and uniting body and mind. Other group mat classes valid with today's deal include Zumba, corefluid fusion, and reformer ROC's.
Pilates Plus founder Jodi claims more than 3,000 hours of traditional Pilates training as well as an IM=X (Integrated Movement eXercise) certification, and has personally trained all the Pilates instructors on her staff. Once the instructors have shown you how to move your body using an efficient range of motion, you'll come away from your quintet of Pilates Plus sessions walking taller and less prone to injury every time an angry gorilla hurls a barrel at you.
Rochester's Pilates Plus owner, Jodi, is a contributor to the Democrat and Chronicle and has appeared on CBS's News 8 as a fitness expert on numerous occasions. Meanwhile, the Arizona Republic, DailyCandy, and The Stylephile are just a few of the publications and media outlets to feature Pilates Plus locations:
- Once you try it, you can understand the hook that the Pilates Plus workout has on its followers. Besides providing consistent results through constant variety, the routines require focus, balance, coordination, strength and trust - trust that the Proformer, the self-contained workout station, will hold you in some of the unique moves and positions performed on this mesmerizing piece of equipment. – Yvette Craddock, Arizona Republic
The top-level Pilates and cardio equipment at Pilates Plus rivals that of a high-end health club, complete with a full-service spa. It's the instructors, however, who use their years of training and unbridled passion for fitness to foster the tight-knit, motivational community of a small gym. Whether conducting yoga classes or doling out healthy tips at the onsite smoothie café, the staff goes out of its way to make fitness a convenient part of its patrons' lives. The spa's therapeutic massages, facial peels, and waxing treatments make for great post-workout rewards, and the heat from the infrared sauna sinks more deeply into skin than in traditional saunas to further encourage weight loss or make popsicles easier to drink.
