Pilates combines mental toughness with physical strength, much like solving a Sudoku puzzle engraved in stone. Crack the core code with today's Groupon: for $39, you get three SPX Pilates or fitness classes at Sweat Pilates in Culver City (up to an $87 value).
Sweat Pilates' recently expanded confines echo with encouragement emanating from instructors leading a schedule of classes that help forge physical fitness. Sweat Pilates sessions veer from Pilates' traditionally slow-moving technique with strength-training elements. Atop Proformer machines, students can tightly target particular muscles with Pilates' lengthening and posture-improving moves in SPX class, whereas 20/20 incorporates TRX suspension straps which elevate limbs and tentacles in strength-training exercises. Studio classes dismount Proformer machinery, spicing routines with inventive techniques to build cardio health and flexibility. A wide range of other courses equip pupils with props such as suspension straps and medicine and bosu balls to improve agility and power and keep workouts exciting without bench-pressing a cheetah. The studio fills with chatter during sessions of high-energy classes such as Zumba, TRX, and boxing.
Sweat Pilates prides itself on not being a typical gym. Case in point: one of its classes involves doing cardio workouts while bouncing on a trampoline. That's just one of several classes customers can engage in to shake-up their typical workout. 75-minute CoreStretch classes combine deep stretching with Thai yoga and Pilates, allowing students to concentrate on breath work and body awareness, while the signature Sweat Pilates sessions utilize Proformer machines, which allow students to better target muscles, improve flexibility, and climb on someone else's furniture without reproof. But no matter which class students choose, Sweat Pilates is dedicated to making sure they have fun in a positive environment.
