Perspiration gets mischievous when cooped up inside the body, acting out by drenching armpits on first dates and disguising itself as tears during job interviews. Release disgruntled body water with today's Groupon to Studio 100, Home of Bense Pilates. Choose between the following options:
- For $40, you get a one-month unlimited membership (an $80 value).
- For $50, you get $100 worth of fitness and wellness services.
Studio 100 lengthens limb muscles and tones tummies via experienced Pilates and yoga instructors and personal trainers in a boutique fitness environment. The class schedule offers sweat sessions from morning until night, catering to both early risers and on-call werewolves. Melt midsections in Pilates Pure Mat classes, in which neophytes learn the basic principles of Pilates and how to un-Pisa personal alignments, or attempt more advanced full-body calisthenics in a group class using the Pilates reformer or chair. Yoga variations, from gentle flow classes to Yoga for Strength sessions, emphasize the use of body resistance, flexibility, and astral projection for yogis of all experience levels, and Zumba aerobics hasten heart rates to the beat of Latin rhythms.
Those who opt for fitness and wellness services can use today's deal towards membership ($80 per month) or private instruction in Pilates and personal training (up to $316 for four sessions). Initial complimentary consultations are included with all services, revealing personalized goals and fostering awareness of how to reach them without the use of telepathy.
Studio 100's atmosphere brings zen to its zenith with nature-inspired décor, including polished hardwood floors, bountiful greenery, and earth-toned walls. Weight equipment and cardio machines equipped with flat-screen TVs compose the fitness area, and floor-to-ceiling mirrors reflect improvement in the Pilates equipment studio. Treat taxed muscles to a session with registered massage therapist Holly Strong, visit the athletic-wear boutique to stay supplied with Pilates gear and props, or grab a much-deserved cappuccino at the mahogany fuel bar and blog about endorphin surges using wireless Internet access.
Studio 100 will waive its $49 enrollment fee for those who want to extend their membership beyond one month.
At Hot Fitness, transformation can begin in midair. That is, if you attend the trampoline fitness classes. Participants bounce their way to stronger muscles and less flab at the fun, fast-paced class. Another workout that defies gravity: TRX suspension training. Though, there are also many classes that work with gravity. For instance, hot yoga, Pilates, and barre, real Ryder spin class, and Zumba, among many others.
