Although feeling the burn during a workout is generally a good sign, feeling the burn while sitting on the sofa means your sofa is in the fireplace. Engage in safe, constructive body burning with today's Groupon: for $30, you get two private Pilates reformer classes (a $100 value) and three group Pilates reformer classes (a $60 value) at Tri-State Athletic Club's Mind & Body Center (a $160 total value).
Tri-State Athletic Club's posture-perfecting instructors sculpt long, lean physiques and strengthen cores with the help of the Pilates Stott reformer. Designed to support balanced muscle development, spinal stabilization, and impeccable penmanship, the Pilates reformer is a spring-loaded bench that glides back and forth on rollers as human arms and legs stretch and flex in a sequence of low-impact, adjustable-resistance exercises. The resulting workout adds increased freedom of movement to the traditional Pilates regime while cutting down on stress to joints and ligaments and allowing for three-dimensional movements that boast little to no impact. Private classes acquaint new students with the reformer bench, allowing them to gain knowledge of its movements and favorite snack foods, and small, open-level group classes allow coaches to nourish each student's growing strength and flexibility or nurse injuries into a strong recovery.
Tri-State Athletic Club
Though it functions as an all-purpose gym, Tri-State Athletic Club is actually a community epicenter. When guests aren't running across its sports courts, they might be toasting each other in its halls at a wine tasting or holiday event. Family-friendly programming welcomes kids and adults alike to pool activities and tennis lessons, and personal trainers guide members, whose names they've committed to memory, through custom workouts. Meanwhile, instructors lead group classes such as Pilates, spin, and heated yoga in well-equipped studios. This supportive atmosphere imbues the club with positive vibes, which prompt strangers on neighboring treadmills to amicably concede the right of way.
