Real Men Do Pilates
Today, a growing number of men are doing Pilates. More and more elite athletes, such as Tiger Woods and Kobe Bryant, are choosing this form of exercise to complement their vigorous training for sports conditioning. In an upcoming article, “Real Men Do Pilates: Get An Edge On Your Competition”, Kerrie Lee Brown, VP, Communications at STOTT PILATES®, focuses on sports figures who are gaining an edge through Pilates to improve muscle tone and help prevent injury. Sally Belanger, Assistant Program Director for STOTT PILATES, trains Toronto Maple Leafs Defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo, and says, “Pilates helps to build and strengthen the core muscular system, allowing the large muscles [primary movers] and levers to work on explosive movements and strength.” Look for this article in the Winter 2007 issue of Inside Fitness magazine, on newsstands in mid-December or read it here.
Pilates Isn’t Just for Adults
Did you know that more and more children and teens are doing Pilates? Check out the youth special edition of OnSite Fitness for “Pilates…Not Just for Adults”, an article that explores the increasing popularity of Pilates as a way to improve kids’ fitness levels and self-esteem. Pilates is intended for both sports-minded and non-athletic youth, providing much-needed variety and fun through the different types of equipment that can be used. “Children can learn the importance of focus and concentration with Pilates and also gain a sense of fulfillment or success at a level they can relate to,” explains Moira Merrithew, STOTT PILATES co-founder and Master Instructor Trainer. Look for this article in the December issue of OnSite Fitness, or download the article.

Some of the training materials are also available in different languages, including Spanish, French, Italian, Portuguese and Japanese. Come the new year, our Comprehensive Matwork*, Essential Reformer, and Intermediate Reformer manuals will be available in Portuguese as well. Future plans include the production of additional manuals and DVDs in even more languages. So stay tuned!
