Success Stories

Rising Above the Economy

During these compelling economic times, what have you done to drive your studio revenue?

If you’re an instructor, how do you keep your clients inspired to continue their mind-body fitness journey despite financial hesitations?

Please share your survival stories and tips with us by emailing We look forward to hearing from you!

NEW COLUMN! Equip Tips

Spring into Action!

Did you know? To keep your Reformer operating at its optimal performance, you should replace the springs regularly. Reformer springs should be replaced every two years if the unit is in use an average of 30 hours per week. We recommend this scheduled maintenance to ensure maximum performance and safety of your equipment at all times, as indicated in your owner’s manual.
