Scoop of the Week: Pilates Stuff I Love!
If you're like me, you probably cringe at late-night infomercials for products like the Pilates Ab Exerciser. Manufacturers behind products like these make outrageous claims for their gimmicks while clinging to the name Pilates; seducing people with promises of an affordable Pilates experience. I even found it on the web ranging in price from $18 -$45 along with reviews from disgruntled buyers claiming it to be the worst fitness product on the market. YIKES!
Thank god for the latest piece of equipment to emerge from within our own community, The PilatesStick! Have you heard about it yet? As the company slogan claims, it offers "Real Pilates Without Limitations". I saw it in action at the Pilates Style Conference in Los Angeles last week and I can't wait to get one!
It's the first portable Pilates apparatus that allows you to perform Cadillac and Reformer exercises in your own home, office or hotel room. And you can literally carry it over your shoulder! Really... it comes with a bag! Plus, it's great for small studio owners who are interested in offering group equipment classes but are limited on space or financial resources. It's only $150, which I think is a steal!
