or 5 Group Classes
Jennifer Aniston, Gwyneth Paltrow, SJP, Uma Thurman, and Charlize Theron are all doing it. No, not making sex tapes or checking into rehab—Pilates.
For $55, we're offering five group Pilates classes (reg. $110) or three private Pilates sessions (reg. $225) at Movement Salon.
You'll strengthen muscles through slow, deliberate movements that coordinate breath and balance, giving you a lean figure. Use your Loot towards a Pilates machine class where you'll tone up with a Reformer and a Cadillac (which add resistance to intensify your workout), or a Gyrotonic Tower session (which tones your core and increases flexibility). Or get one-on-one attention during a private hour-long session, in which you'll try out any (or all) of the machines.
Movement's Pilates pros, rated 4 stars on Yelp, will get you on your way to a red-carpet bod.
"The charm and atmosphere of this place is great. If you have the pleasure of working out on the ground floor, the stained glass ceiling is so mesmerizing that you forget you're working out."
"I had a private lesson with Rafael (I'm not sure about the spelling) and she was awesome. She's very aware of what's going on with your body and pushes you without going too far."
"I love Sal Anthony's Movement Salon!!!!!! Beautiful Building! Fantastic People! Great mellow vibe."
From Yelp (where Movement Salon has a 4-star rating from 49 reviews):
"This is a great studio. I've had yoga, pilates mat and machine classes and they are all fantastic. The building is full of character (it looks like an old gentleman's club like someone mentioned). There's lovely Catholic church-like glass mosaics on the wall. Art everywhere. A dog. A cat. This is not a pretentious studio. Everyone is nice, welcoming helpful and friendly. Also, the price is right. Best prices in the city, I believe." - Tiara H. (1/16/11)
