The all-in-one V2 Max Plus™ Reformer* expands Pilates programming at Hillside City Club, Istanbul, Turkey

TORONTO, April 2, 2008 – The STOTT PILATES® V2 Max Plus™ Reformer is the most advanced piece of Pilates equipment on the market – and the prestigious Hillside City Club is shaking up the playing field with its cutting-edge programming and instruction.

The Hillside City Club is fully equipped with Merrithew™ Equipment and trained instructors. STOTT PILATES is the world’s largest full-service Pilates organization providing superior equipment and training; as well as the producer of the largest Pilates DVD collection with over 120 titles in its lineup. STOTT PILATES is a recognized leader in the Pilates industry – and when you associate with STOTT PILATES, you associate with the best. 

“Clubs need versatility and the freedom to change gears easily,” says Lindsay G. Merrithew, President and CEO, STOTT PILATES and creator of the revolutionary V2 Max Plus Reformer. “The V2 Max Plus was designed to provide maximum programming within a contained amount of space. We are thrilled that members of Hillside City Club are able to experience this multi-purpose piece of equipment and qualified STOTT PILATES instruction will now be more accessible.”

For a superior workout, the V2 Max Plus allows the body to emulate the free, multi-dimensional movement of daily life. Its innovative vertical frame pulley system accommodates three-dimensional range of motion, maintains workout flow and provides even, constant resistance without jarring. The adjustable pulley system alters pull direction for superior standing support and the retractable rope system provides precise rope-length adjustability. This solid, all-in-one system also multi-tasks as a Mat, Reformer and Cadillac – delivering unlimited exercise possibilities for group classes and private training.

“The V2 Max Plus is everything you need to execute a first-rate Pilates program that will evolve as you do,” adds Moira Merrithew, Executive Director, Education for STOTT PILATES. “The V2 Max Plus provides facilities and trainers with a complete system, including specialized programming around rehabilitation, while enhancing the training regimens for the active-aging market and elite athletes looking for advanced sports conditioning.”
