“We are dedicated to creating high-caliber, safe and effective equipment that will in turn provide high-caliber, safe and effective exercise,” says Lindsay G. Merrithew, President and CEO, Merrithew. “As mind-body exercise develops as the “it” way to stay fit in the UAE, this partnership with Recorp Middle East allows us to serve the region’s growing interest in mind-body exercise with quality fitness equipment and accessories.”

“The popularity of Pilates and mindful movement has grown tremendously in the UAE over the last few years,” notes Raymond Kelly, the Chairman at RME. Our goal is to offer the best fitness equipment available on the market, so it made sense to partner with Merrithew based on their global reputation as The Professional’s Choice™. We look forward to distributing their superior products to the community of clubs, studios, and fitness professionals in the UAE to support theirs and our business and fitness goals.”
