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.Taste historical perfection with today’s Groupon at Pilates V Studio on Daniel Island. Choose between the following options:
- For $45, you get five semi-private Pilates apparatus classes (a $150 value).
- For $35, you get one month of unlimited group fitness classes (a $75 value).
Pilates V Studio steers slumped bodies toward greater strength and litheness using classic power Pilates methods. During apparatus sessions, highly trained instructors lead small groups of beginning, intermediate, or advanced fitness-seekers through exercises on the studio's traditional apparatuses. Along with the reformer, these can include floor mats, Cadillacs, Wunda Chairs, and Magic Circles, which bestow sleek, steely abs upon those who use them frequently. Alternately, utilize the expanse of one month to mix and match group classes from four distinct disciplines: Pilates mat, which challenges core strength through floor-based moves; Zumba, a hybrid of Latin dance–influenced cardio intervals and resistance training for body-wide fat-burning; classic yoga, which builds strength and flexibility through a series of poses and postures; and TRX Suspension Training, a system using specially designed equipment to create resistance from your own body weight to increase muscle mobility and power.
In addition to developing leaner muscles and limber limbs, regular Pilates pupils can enjoy greater body awareness, improved posture, healthier spines, and a leg up during hula-hoop and shot put biathlons. Refer to the schedule for class times; apparatus classes must be used within 30 days of the first visit. Call to make a reservation.
Island Fitness Studio
At Island Fitness Studio, bodies learn to defy physics, becoming at once firm and bendable. That's because the instructors specialize in tightening cores and enhancing reach. Their group Pilates, yoga, and Beyond Barre sessions coach muscles in the art of balance, extending limbs upward during hot Vinyasa sequences and leveraging focused, dance-inspired stretches against a ballet barre. Other classes, such as TRX suspension training and spinning, complement these flexing routines with resistance and cardio workouts.
Power Pilates–certified teachers also lead private apparatus sessions. They familiarize clients with the Reformer, Tower, Wunda Chair, and other props, all of which develop patrons' posture and strength more safely than fusing steel beams to their skeletons. Regardless of the number of people involved in a lesson, the guides personalize their approach to suit varying goals and fitness levels. The studio can even furnish advanced students with Power Pilates and Beyond Barre certifications.
