Pilates Day 2015 is approaching, and this year, we want to honor Pilates instructors. Thanks to your hard work and dedication, more people are seeing the value of having Pilates in their lives.

He tells us Joseph Pilates was a genius and created a perfect system for everyone. He also encourages more men to add Pilates to their regular training routine.
