TORONTO, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 – TORONTO - STOTT PILATES® launched their new Specialty Tracks program on September 1, 2010. Specialty Tracks are designed as a tool for instructors, allowing them to concentrate on a particular demographic and gain access to niche client groups. The five Specialty Tracks are: Athletic Conditioning, Golf Conditioning, Post-Rehabilitation Conditioning, Active for Life and Pre & Postnatal. Specialty Track workshops are open to all fitness professionals looking to focus their training and acquire new skills.
