STOTT PILATES® Unwraps the Secrets to a Great Body
with five hot new workout programs and three new Gift Packs

TORONTO, September 28, 2005 –

STOTT PILATES, producer of the world’s largest library of pilates home exercise videos, is pleased to announce the release of five all-new workout programs and three new gift packs, just in time for New Year’s resolutions. The workouts share the latest applications of pilates exercise, in invigorating new routines to help participants lose weight, strengthen and tone their bodies and achieve a greater sense of well-being.

The DVDs, featuring Master Instructor Trainer and STOTT PILATES co-founder Moira Merrithew, are packed with bonus material including a chance to preview other programs, try the next level, or work out with music only.

Pilates brand leader, STOTT PILATES is also presenting four new gift packs combining new exercise programs on DVD with complementary accessories. Newly launching are a Toning Ball Gift Pack, Weight Loss Gift Pack, and Fitness Circle® Lite Gift Pack.

“A fit and healthy body is on everyone’s wish list, yet a lot of people have trouble sticking to an exercise program,” said Executive Producer and STOTT PILATES President and CEO, Lindsay G. Merrithew. “We’re always striving to deliver consumers motivating tools they can use to achieve their mind-body fitness goals, and I think these are quite possibly our best programs to date.”

The workouts draw on the scientifically based principles of STOTT PILATES, a contemporary approach to the popular stretch and strengthen exercise method. STOTT PILATES has been used by athletes, dancers and celebrities worldwide, including Karen Kain, Sharon Stone, Martha Stewart and Madonna.
