A Great Day for a Ride in the Caddy
Dear Practice Friends,
The amount of open space we have in the studio is limited and for this reason, when we first opened, I chose to buy Pilates Reformers that have towers on the back that offer a lot of the Cadillac’s functionality without taking up so much room.
However, there are still a lot of really great exercises you can’t do without the horizontal uprights and the trapeze, and it has been on my mind for some time now to buy one. Becoming a hosting facility for Merrithew Health & Fitness last year made the purchase inevitable (We will offer instructor training on the Cadillac in 2015). Finally, Kitty Snow has been begging me for almost six years to get one, and I couldn’t say no to her one more time!
The Cadillac offers an extensive range of applications for everyone from post-rehab clients to athletes. There are over 200 exercises that are part of the STOTT PILATES repertoire, including some really fun ones like the Walk Over, in which you hang upside down from the horizontal bars! The next time you are in the studio tell your instructor you would like to take the Caddy for a spin.
Have a happy Labor Day and a memorable September!

On August 19th we had the employees of the new Lululemon Athletica Showroom in for a round robin event, where they had the opportunity to work with all of the Practice instructors in 15 minute blocks. The Practice team brought their A game to the event and Allison, Jessica and Kari did a great job on Reformer, Stability Chairs, Cadillac and TRX. Good work, Ladies!
Just a reminder, the showroom is at 2533 Far Hills Avenue in Oakwood (2nd floor, above Huffman Travel) and the hours of operation are Thursday through Saturday, 10am – 5pm.
