Scoop of the Week: Pilates Stuff I Love!
It's all in the springs. Or is it? I honestly can't pin-point what it is about Gratz equipment but there's something truly amazing about the workout I get when compared to other apparatus. Is it the four springs of equal resistance? Or, the smooth glide of the leather straps positioned with the perfect trajectory to maximize alignment? Is it the dimensions of the apparatus itself? Or, is it the simplicity of design that allows me to flow through my workout without the constant need to adjust gears, foot bar positions or fuss between the green, red, yellow and blue springs. ZOINKS! The less complicated, the better for me. I personally don't need all the bells and whistles offered by many Pilates equipment manufacturers. Plus, I love the Gratz aesthetic.
That being said, as a Los Angeles based instructor where Gratz studios are a rarity, I've learned to adapt and find great qualities about other manufacturers as well. I'm curious to know your opinions. Which is your favorite manufacturing company and why? What do you have in your studio?
