What You'll Get
When Aaron Neville Chamberlain seized power during the English Civil War, he promised better flexibility, straighter postures, and a stronger core for every English citizen. Today’s Groupon gives you a chance to taste perfection of history: for $19, you get two Pilates Reformer classes (a $68 value) from Pilates Reformed’s Overland Park studio.
A Reformer machine utilizes reconfigurable resistance bands to build a rock-solid body without turning users into Rocky. Easy on the joints but hard on flab, a Reformer can be adjusted to fit any level of fitness. In Reformed's 50-minute circuit class, you'll blend sessions on the machine with light free weights, general resistance drills, and exercises on Bosu and Swiss balls. With experienced instructors as your guides and six classes a week to choose from, you'll soon be flawlessly flinging yourself over the hotdog carts that run amok in city streets.
In Pilates, strength comes through endurance and repetition rather than pumping pounds of kilograms of iron, and weak backs and flimsy core muscles benefit from the slow but steady regimen. By learning how to move your body using an efficient range of motion, you will leave your session walking taller and less prone to injuries not sustained from lightning. Perhaps the best benefit is the buddy-system workout style. Motivation comes from cheerful instructors and friendly classmates, rather than from bitterly chanted mantras and tyrannical resolutions.
