What You'll Get
Apples and humans have a lot in common: without a strong core, both will get soft, fall off the tree, and be devoured by wild boars. Develop a courageous core and ballyhoo balance with today's Groupon to The Pilates Center in Boulder. Choose between the following options:
- For $49, you get six mat classes (a $108 value).
- For $79, you get 30 days of unlimited classes (a $295 value).
The Pilates Center's owners, sisters Amy Taylor Alpers and Rachel Taylor Segel, apply their Pilates prowess to the fitness success of their students. The Pilates Center schedule consists of more than 10 one-hour classes, with sessions throughout the day to accommodate all types of busy schedules. With motivation provided by inspirational instructors, mat maneuverers can stretch and flex their bodies into lean, molded musculature through a series of controlled movements that grant a rock-solid core, better balance, and government-bendiness subsidies. Mat classes are ideal for the Pilates plebe, nurturing novices with the fundamentals of Pilates movements, as well as for intermediate and advanced students who prefer Pilates without the machines. Seekers of strong cores who choose 30 days of unlimited classes can match their expertise to a session of their liking, including all levels of reformer and pole classes. Included in the 30 days is a one-on-one private consultation and lesson, giving Pilates proselytes the mind beans and basics for a quality start.
The Daily Camera has featured The Pilates Center:
- The owners, both of whom have extensive training in ballet dance, cite their backgrounds as professional dance teachers as one of the key reasons they were able to teach body movements and create a formal technique structure. – S. Gouri Srinidhi

About The Pilates Center
Sisters Rachel and Amy Taylor have done a lot of things together. They both fell in love with ballet at a young age and both achieved impressive hallmarks in their careers as dancers—Rachel danced for the David Taylor Dance Theatre and taught at the Alvin Ailey School, and Amy studied at Juilliard and danced for the Garden State Ballet. Eventually, they both wound up studying Pilates at the original Pilates Studio, taught by Joseph Pilates' heir Romana Kryzanowska. Now, they engage on another co-sisterly journey with The Pilates Center, where they impart the exercises they learned to new generations of Pilates practitioners.
Instructors utilize both classic mat work and reformer machines to introduce beginners to the art of Pilates. The studio encourages as many of it students as possible to strive for instructor certification, as that often sets people on a lifelong quest for health and empowers them to speak in a haughty German accent.
