In the Victorian era, people made their cores look tight by wearing corsets, which doubled as bulletproof vests during pistol duels. Strengthen your core until it's naturally impervious to bullets instead with today's Groupon: for $59, you get one month of unlimited classes at Propulsion Pilates (a $130 value) at either of the Salt Lake City, Liberty, or Ogden locations. Propulsion Pilates’ core-empowering programs blend the controlled movement of traditional Pilates with modern equipment and strength and cardiovascular exercises. Certified in all Joseph Pilates apparatuses, the friendly instructors stay abreast of the latest methods by attending workshops held by top Pilates instructors. Over the course of one month, classes build strength, flexibility, and endurance, concentrating the core into an infinitely dense gravitational vortex designed to suck in compliments and unsuspecting astronauts.
Propulsion Pilates' instructors rely on the familiar Pilates contraptions that fill most studios, but they alter the time-tested workout regimen by incorporating it into a more modern style of circuit training. They combine sequences on the Reformer, Tower, and Wunda Chair with occasional cardio exercises and kettlebell work, creating challenging sessions that manage to refine technique while bolstering strength and flexibility. To keep classes teetering on the cuttingest of edges, the instructors attend at least two Pilates workshops every year to update their mental cache of fitness tricks, but they always leave a little disappointed that a flying Reformer machine appears to be at least another six months off.
