Like the framework of a mighty skyscraper, the core helps humans to hold up the weight of the sky. Stay firm against the firmament with today's Groupon: for $30, you get five group fitness classes at Rockwell Pilates (a $60 value).
Rockwell Pilates populates its fit-focused schedule with a plethora of sculpting and strengthening sessions bettered by small class sizes. In a private lofted studio overlooking the city's skyline, practiced instructors guide students through multi-level Pilates sessions that lengthen limb muscles, improve balance, and carve cores into ice-cube-tray templates. The Pilates Foundation & Principles class grounds first-time practitioners, and more advanced offerings such as Pilates Fusion and Pilates Stretch build on existing skills like a muscular erector set. Experienced Pilates pupils can enroll in these upper-level classes by meeting the prerequisites and contacting the studio.
For non-Pilates pursuits, yoga sessions combine breathing and bending to help students to achieve a deeper mind-body connection. Martial-arts boot camp puts a spin on traditional boot camps, incorporating karate, kickboxing, and self-defense to slice through offending garden vegetables.
