Our Commitment to Quality Control

Here at we pride ourselves on selling the highest quality, handcrafted and professionally tuned Pilates Apparatus available on the market today. Many of our previous customers have written us over the years to thank us for building such remarkable products. And while we would love to tell you that it is our care and commitment to Joseph Pilates original intent, the truth is that we have a secret weapon that allows us to be able to deliver a better piece of apparatus than our competitors. His name is Sebastian and as you can tell from the pictures below, he is an expert at testing our apparatus. Whether he is adjusting springs on a reformer, testing each piece of equipment for maximum performance, or just working out, he is our last line of quality control before anything heads out of our doors. So if you own one of our apparatus, or plan on buying one in the future, please don’t thank us, thank Sebastian.

Pilates Doesn't Cost, it Pays

With the economy faltering people are looking for ways to cut back wherever they can. More often then not, that means reducing medical care, eating foods that aren't as healthy, and spending less time and money staying in shape.

This is the wrong way to think. Staying in shape saves you money. It lowers the chances that you will need medical care, your body requires less food because it is working more efficiently, and your positive self-image leads toward improving yourself in other ways. It is a lifestyle choice that relives stress, is a healthier way to live, and a necessity for people who wish live a better life.

Just as keeping your mind sharp as you age, we all know that keeping healthy leads to increased overall wellbeing. This is where Pilates can help you save money because Pilates is comprehensive; every exercise is a step to total integration of the body systems. Keeping up on your Pilates is a solid financial investment. So in this time of tighter wallets, let Pilates help you keep a tighter powerhouse and you'll be richer for it.

Lessening Pilates Environmental Impact

Our commitment to the Pilates Method extends beyond the fusion of mind and body and into the community itself. To us, it is the extension of finding our natural strengths, counteracting its weaknesses, and correcting for imbalances. We have but one world to live in and at we promise to maintain the mindset laid forth by Joseph Pilates that our minds can control our muscles and in turn our actions.

Because of our volume and in-house design and manufacturing we are able to offer some alternatives not currently found at other Pilates manufactures. Some of these differences include vegan friendly straps made of military grade Kevlar instead of the standard leather, environmentally friendly packaging, and an ever reducing carbon footprint that we are very proud of. We believe that each of us, doing our part, can make a positive difference and help provide a balance for years to come.
