Toronto, December 16, 2013 – Merrithew™ (MH&F), one of Canada’s largest fitness companies offering high-caliber fitness brands, premium equipment and quality education, commemorated their 25th anniversary with their successful Merrithew Mindful Movement World Tour (#mmm2013). The Tour visited 10 world-class cities in nine different countries to share the latest in mind-body modalities and exercise science with the global fitness community.
The Tour traveled more than 655,500 miles touching down in Germany, China, Japan, Brazil, Australia, England, Mexico, Canada and the USA to offer first-class education through courses and workshops from MH&F’s premium branded programs: STOTT PILATES®, ZEN•GA®, CORE&trade Athletic Conditioning & Performance Training™, Total Barre® and Halo® Training. Each of the symposiums took place over a three-day period and attracted passionate mind-body exercise professionals who were excited to learn from MH&F’s team of highly sought-after Master Instructor Trainers. The World Tour attracted more than 1,200 fitness professionals and enthusiasts from around the globe and equipped them with the skills they need to instruct and to participate in safe, responsible, fun and effective exercise.
“It has been a very humbling experience to see the impact that our programming and education has had on a global level,” shares Lindsay G. Merrithew, President and CEO. “We’re very fortunate to have the most influential, inspirational individuals in mind-body exercise as members of the MH&F community. The opportunity to work with them to share our collective knowledge and enthusiasm for mindful movement is nothing short of incredibly rewarding.”
“The World Tour has truly been a life-changing experience,” says Moira Merrithew, Executive Director, Education. “Experiencing the profound, positive impact that mind-body exercise can have makes what we do all the more gratifying. We’re very thankful to our team of Master Instructor Trainers and to all of the participants who joined us for the World Tour, helping us to mark this monumental milestone.”
After the incredible success of the World Tour, MH&F is already planning upcoming symposiums for next year. The 2014 Merrithew Mindful Movement Tour will be designed for all members of the fitness community, to learn the latest in mind-body exercise with dates already planned for Cologne, Germany (April 4 – 6) and New York May (2 – 4).
