What You'll Get
Though the core was once accessed solely by way of Icelandic volcano, scientists have proven that, like compassion and red dye No. 2, a bit of the core is always inside us. Turn your molten core to solid rock with today's Groupon to Pilates Studio City's three locations in Porter Ranch, Studio City, or Valley Village. Choose between the following options:
• For $35, you get five group classes (a $70 value).
• For $80, you get two private sessions (a $114 value).
Pilates Studio City's warm, welcoming, and spacious studios house qualified instructors who lead tummy tighteners through comprehensive routines during group classes. The flexibility-enhancing sessions last for 55 minutes and take place several times a day throughout the week, giving body benders ample opportunities to squeeze in a session. Skeleton-stretching students can also opt for the private sessions to receive more personalized, tailored instruction based on their specific goals and needs. Customers may select from a range of classes, including yoga, Zumba, and belly dance, combining as they wish from any of the three locations.
Pilates Studio City's classes and private sessions offer a low-impact workout that won't put stress on practitioners' back or joints and can be practiced by people of all fitness levels and most health levels. Students can strengthen their cores—the girdle of muscles that wraps around the back and tummy—and improve their overall range of motion, flexibility, and balance. Fitness-seekers can also improve posture, a vital ingredient to moving up in the corporate world, seeing over the steering wheel, and sitting down.
