The only thing that separates willowy professional dancers from willowy giant squids is the vertebrate skeleton. Obtain a physique you can flaunt in front of amazed cephalopods with today’s Groupon: for $45, new clients get five one-hour classes (a $90 value) at The Bar Method, an exercise superbreed combining the benefits of interval training, isometrics, dance principles, and physical therapy into one revolutionary routine.
While Pilates is corrective, The Bar Method is transformative—much like those cars that transform into miniature weasels. You’ll burn fat, sculpt muscles, refine your figure, and improve your strength and endurance. After a brief warm-up, you’ll tackle the upper body with weights and bar exercises. The workout continues with challenging lower-body positions and floor exercises designed to firm up your abs and glutes. This diverse and challenging workout gives you the long, lean muscles and elegant posture of a ballet dancer without the discomfort and inconvenience of being heckled by ballet hooligans.
Because of its focus on stretching and lengthening, The Bar Method helps moms-to-be reduce aches and swollen joints from pregnancy, and also provides excellent practice for Gumby impersonators. Classes take place every day. Get this Groupon and discover a new, comprehensive system of exercise that will tone your limbs without leading to Hulk-shredded pants. Groupon customers wishing to continue their fitness journey will also be eligible for the studio's $100 new-client special.
