Why STOTT PILATES?

STOTT PILATES® is a contemporary approach to the original
exercise method pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates. Lindsay and
Moira Merrithew, along with a team of physical therapists, sports
medicine and fitness professionals, have spent over three decades
refining the acclaimed STOTT PILATES method of exercise. The refined
method resulted in the inclusion of modern principles of exercise
science and rehabilitation — making it one of the safest and most
effective methods available. STOTT PILATES is recognized as a leader
in Pilates programming by studios, fitness facilities, fitness professionals
and the consumer market worldwide.
