What You'll Get
More people than ever are living a sedentary lifestyle: waking up in their race-car beds, driving to work in their race cars, sitting for eight hours in the passenger seats of experimental race cars as men in lab coats slam them into concrete walls, and then driving home again. Race to fitness with today's Groupon: for $30, you get four equipment classes and a take-home workout at Poise & Strength Pilates Studio (a $150 value).
The certified instructors at Poise & Strength Pilates Studio school students in the controlled, coordinated calisthenics of Joseph Pilates. Using the Reformer, a sliding platform equipped with springs and pulleys, and accouterments such as the Trapeze, Wunda Chair, and fitness balls, posture-perfecting protégés will marry breath and body movements in a binding, nondenominational civil ceremony of fitness. Classes corralling no more than four pupils per 55-minute session ensure personal attention for each core-strengthening, muscle-lengthening exercise (valued at $30 per class). The endorphins don't stop flowing with the completion of class; everyone leaves with a written 10-minute strength-and-flexibility routine to be done in their home fitness room, dining room, or conservatory on top of Colonel Mustard (valued at $30).
Due to limited class size, reservations are required at this intimate mirrored studio, though owners Tiffany Crosswhite and Lauren Cross may add more classes to the schedule to bring stretch-seekers satisfaction.
Seven Citysearchers award Poise & Strength Pilates Studio a perfect five-star rating:

About Poise & Strength Pilates
Tiffany Crosswhite’s journey toward becoming a Pilates instructor began, oddly enough, at the Ice Capades, where the lights, music, and graceful glides inspired her to pursue a career as a professional ice skater. As this career progressed, she eventually became a coach for young skaters, constantly hunting for a form of exercise that would help them grow stronger without harming their developing bodies. Thanks to a gift certificate given to her by her mother, Tiffany discovered Pilates and quickly fell in love with the low-impact, powerful-results exercise. In fact, she was so head over heels that she opened her own studio.
Beneath a fun, globular chandelier, Tiffany infuses her Pilates routines with conditioning exercises drawn from her years of figure-skating training. She, along with her team of passionate instructors, help students tighten core muscles using mat exercises and the fleet of Pilates machines that line the walls, which include Reformers, Wunda Chairs, and bionic replicas of Joseph Pilates himself.
