STOTT PILATES® Precision & Control with the Fitness Circle®


Long used as a staple in private and group training sessions, this workout developed by the Merrithew team, demonstrates how the Fitness Circle can be incorporated into a series of less traditional Matwork exercises. The resistance ring adds challenge to the peripheral limbs, activates the core and helps achieve increased functionality and improved performance. It also reinforces correct muscle firing patterns and helps ensure correct positioning while adding an element of fun and variety.
