When Aaron Neville Chamberlain seized power during the English Civil War, he promised better flexibility, straighter postures, and a stronger core for every English citizen. Today’s Groupon gives you a chance to feel such history: for $39, you get one month of unlimited yoga and Pilates classes at Urban Body Studios and one month of membership to Urban Body Fitness (a $129 total value). These fitness centers are conveniently located just steps from each other in Virginia Highland. Membership to Urban Body Fitness includes access to gym equipment, spinning, and other group fitness classes. Urban Body Studios won Citysearch awards for both Pilates and yoga, and Urban Body Fitness has collected such awards as Best Atlanta Gym in 2008.
Urban Body Fitness and Urban Body Studios aim to wow visitors with a relentless barrage of impressive amenities, equipment, classes, and high-tech lighting that stimulates the pleasure center of brains. A friendly atmosphere is buttressed by exquisitely compiled décor, including clean geometric shapes, manicured potted grass, and shiny hardwood floors in the workout rooms. In addition to expertly led yoga and Pilates sessions, visitors will be able to take advantage of a fitness membership that includes a barrage of strength-training and cardio equipment, pristine locker-room areas, complimentary towel service, and fresh-brewed coffee and tea. A talented staff of studio instructors works with you, using your personal fitness goals to help you create internal motivation with an extra boost of teacher encouragement.
Practicing yoga and Pilates is a great way to stay toned and limber while temporarily storing worldly worries in a drawer with knickknacks, spare change, and shrunken heads. Urban Body Fitness and Urban Body Studios blend self-motivated and group workouts into an appetizing wellness smoothie that will fuel your drive to succeed and upgrade bodies into sleek, twenty-first-century muscle vessels.

- I started going to Urban Body about a month and a half ago after not doing pilates for a couple of years. The instructors at UBS are great and they really take the time to help correct you during class. These are definitely the hardest pilates classes I've taken, which I think is great. – bobsam, Citysearch
- It's gorgeous inside and it's very cool but also really relaxing. I always feel like I'm on vacation when I walk in the doors even though I'm going to work out. – Nicole M., Yelp
