Closing our 2014 Tour in the UK!

Between November 7th and 9th, seven members of the Merrithew® HQ team made their way across the pond for the final stop of our 2014 Merrithew Mindful Movement Tour in the UK – always one of our favorite events of the year! Reuniting our global community of Licensed Training Center Owners, Instructor Trainers, Instructors and exercise enthusiasts, fitness once again proves itself to be a universal language that unites us all.

Visits to the UK are full of positive energy and enthusiasm, with a mix of new and returning attendees from all over the world including Africa, Asia, Brazil, Europe, and North America. One of our highlights this year was introducing a fresh team of presenters including Laureen Dubeau, Sarah Jarvis, and Dr. Bob Andersen, who shared their unique perspective on programming from STOTT PILATES®, ZEN•GA®, CORE Athletic Conditioning & Performance Training, Total Barre® and Halo® Training.
