Toronto, August 27, 2013  – Merrithew™ (MH&F) has been going around the world celebrating the 25th Anniversary of their premier brand, STOTT PILATES®, with the Merrithew Mindful Movement World Tour (#mmm2013) and will return home to Canada this December.

“It’s incredible to see the growing interest in mind-body fitness across the world,” says Lindsay G. Merrithew, CEO & President of Merrithew. “In 1988 at the beginning of this journey, we were training clients out of our Toronto studio apartment. Now the company has evolved to having trained almost 38,000 instructors around the world, 4,400 of them from Canada. In addition to having an undisputed global presence, our Corporate Training Center in Toronto has grown to be an international leader attracting fitness professionals from every continent.”

Twenty-five years of experience in evolving the STOTT PILATES method has allowed our team to develop three additional high-end branded education, Total Barre®, CORE Athletic Conditioning & Performance Training™ and ZEN•GA®, all of which uphold that same philosophy while adapting to current trends in the industry. We look forward to sharing the most up-to-date training with the Canadian fitness community.”
