Toronto, ON – March 4, 2015 – Destined to become a staple for Pilates instructors, fitness professionals and healthcare practitioners everywhere, MERRITHEW™, Leaders in Mindful Movement™, are pleased to announce the release of the highly-anticipated, dual-functionality Stability Barrel — a multi-purpose cushioned arc, overlaid with the MERRITHEW Airex Coronella 200 Mat.
“As the world of fitness science moves steadily forward, our equipment continues to do the same, without compromising our commitment to originality, safety, effectiveness and quality,” notes Lindsay G. Merrithew, President & CEO of MERRITHEW. “This perfect addition to any studio or clinic can be utilized in programming for rehabilitation through to advanced training for athletes. Inverted or upright, this barrel allows for scalable exercise progression and regression as core, strength and sport-specific exercises are possible.”
According to Moira Merrithew, Executive Director, Education, this new barrel is also a versatile new tool for physical therapists to create customized balance retraining, conditioning and educational programs. “The gentle curve provides great proprioceptive feedback and total body support in an easy, lengthened position, which is perfect for those clients with longer torsos, neck issues or limited range into extension. Extra thick padding is great for sensitivities in the spine, wrists or knees.”
The Stability Barrel is available at merrithew.com, and select online retailers.
