Pilates combines mental toughness with physical strength, much like solving a Sudoku puzzle engraved in stone. Etch your fitness niche with today's Groupon: for $40, you get three drop-in Pilates mat classes and a 60-minute customized neuromuscular massage at ReVibe Pilates & Bodywork (a $101 value).
ReVibe Pilates & Bodywork's dynamic Pilates mat classes and therapeutic bodywork help students sculpt long, lean, relaxed musculature, earning the studio the distinction of the Colorado Springs Independent's Best Pilates Studio. With the studio's flexible schedule of stretch sessions, students may drop into mat classes throughout the week. Pupils work to limber joints and firm up torsos with fundamental stretches in Back to Basics Pilates sessions. During more intensive Mat Plus Props classes, fitness gurus guide students as they hoist weights and stretch light-resistance therabands to sculpt lean muscles more flexible than a rubber band with an empty datebook.
Students pamper hardworking muscles with neuromuscular-massage therapy. The gentle technique mollifies muscle fibers and works to ease aches and pains related to tough workouts, whiplash, carpal-tunnel syndrome, or Parcheesi elbow. During a 60-minute session, candles flicker in the private massage room as a nimble-fingered therapist assesses the source of pain with palpation and may analyze posture before coaxing muscles to catapult tension back to the nearest Ivy League school.

The class is small, a cluster of hard-working students lift their legs as an instructor walks around them to check posture and adjust forms. The instructors at ReVibe Pilates & Bodywork purposefully keep their Pilates classes intimate to ensure they can attend to each student in turn. This enables the teachers to better help their charges as they build core, arm, and leg muscles by performing exercises on the Reformer machines or on the mat.
In addition to mat and reformer classes, the team also offers massages and bodywork to accommodate a variety of issues for all shapes and sizes. Among the different modalities is Neuromuscular Therapy, a medical massage that helps work out kinks in muscles and connective tissue, and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapy, which relieves high levels of tension.
