In the Victorian era, people made their cores look tight by wearing corsets, which doubled as bulletproof vests during pistol duels. Strengthen your core and extremities until they are naturally impervious to bullets instead with today's Groupon to The Pilates Principle & GYROTONIC Albany in Latham. Choose from the following options:
- For $15, you get three Nia classes (a $30 value), which meet Sundays at 9 a.m.
- For $36, you get three Beginner Pilates Tower classes (a $72 value), which meet Tuesdays at 6 p.m. and Saturdays at 11 a.m.
- For $50, you get three private GYROTONIC sessions (up to a $240 value), available by appointment seven days a week.
The staff at The Pilates Principle & GYROTONIC Albany, led by physical therapist Nuhar Jaleel, helps students improve their physical strength and fitness through a variety of unique, inspired workouts. In Nia classes, students turn, step, and kick in barefooted unison to rhythmic music from more than 45 countries during a unique cardio routine that combines dance and martial arts. The unique combination of 52 movements increases cardiovascular strength while targeting the lower body, the upper body, and the nougaty core.
Beginner Pilates Tower classes incorporate machines powered by gears and pulleys into precise, controlled exercises that work the body's natural system of soft-tissue gears and ligament-pulleys, strengthening the core. A limit of seven students to every instructor guarantees individual attention as Pilates Principles's experienced staff adjusts each workout to students' unique goals and fitness level.
At private 60-minute GYROTONIC sessions, an instructor personally acquaints students with unique GYROTONIC exercise equipment made up of weights, pulleys, and sliding carriages. Clients attend classes by appointment only, available seven days a week, where a combination of machines, synchronized-breathing patterns, and fluid, rotational exercise stimulates the connective tissues. The resulting workout helps improve muscle tone with much less strain and impact than typical gyroscopic workouts, such as piloting a giant hamster ball down the Philadelphia Museum of Art's iconic steps.
