STOTT PILATES® and the Colorado Athletic Club-Inverness
Open Pilates Studio and Instructor Training Center
TORONTO, March 27, 2008 -
STOTT PILATES and the Colorado Athletic Club-Inverness have joined forces to open a fully-equipped STOTT PILATES studio and instructor training center – the first in Colorado. Located in Englewood near Park Meadows Mall, this boutique-studio-inspired space was unveiled to the fitness industry on March 15th and will offer private and group Pilates classes, as well as STOTT PILATES’ highly acclaimed instructor training.
“We are pleased to be able to offer Colorado Athletic Club Members the quintessential Pilates experience within a multi-purpose facility, while making our instructor training programs more accessible to fitness professionals in the Colorado and surrounding areas,” said Lindsay G. Merrithew, President and CEO, STOTT PILATES.
“In recognition of the ever-increasing knowledge it takes to have an exceptional Pilates program and the quality and variety of equipment needed to support each member's desire to participate, the Colorado Athletic Clubs, a division of the Wellbridge Company, have chosen to partner with STOTT PILATES which is often considered the Ivy League of the Pilates experience,” said Jay Kell, Chief Operating Officer, the Wellbridge Company. “We welcome STOTT PILATES' state-of-the-art equipment and instructor training, which will enable us to continually provide the latest Pilates techniques and instructor knowledge to our members.”
As the second location to become an official STOTT PILATES Corporate Training Center (the first located in Tribeca, New York City) alongside the STOTT PILATES International Certification Center in Toronto, the Colorado Athletic Club-Inverness’ instructor training program will be run from the STOTT PILATES corporate office and studio classes will be handled by the club’s staff.
“Unlike other clubs that offer Pilates classes and programming, the Colorado Athletic Club-Inverness Members will learn the latest techniques and repertoire because they will be immersed in a professional instruction and training environment,” added Moira Merrithew, Executive Director, Education for STOTT PILATES.
