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 $35, you get five mat Pilates classes at Studio Zee Pilates (an $85 value).
The friendly instructors at the sleek and fully equipped studio are fully certified in the STOTT Pilates method, a contemporary form of Pilates that incorporates modern exercise-science principles into traditional practices, resulting in a safe and highly effective workout. Several different levels of mat classes are offered at Studio Zee, and the flexible class schedule offers enough weekly courses to accommodate busy schedules. Sign up for a beginner mat class to pick up basic Pilates principles and blueberry-pie recipes, or opt for a higher-level class to strengthen ab muscles in preparation for an upcoming tightrope walk. The studio’s limited class sizes allow instructors the luxury of lavishing students with personal attention and a workout customized to their own pace.
Regularly practicing Pilates can help strengthen one’s core, result in longer, leaner muscles, and help prevent muscle and ego injury without putting any impact on joints.
