Even as an equipment expert who has traveled the country solving equipment maintenance problems for studios, I’ve had my fair share of equipment nightmares:
Sound familiar? Unfortunately, it is super common.
Before I was a Pilates instructor, I was a mechanical engineer. After completing my teacher training, I merged my two passions.
Initially, I helped design equipment for Balanced Body where I bridged the gap between the technical manufacturing-speak and the equally-complicated Pilates world language and ideals.
Then I noticed a bigger problem. While Pilates teachers had access to beautiful equipment, most of them were lost on how to take care of it and it wasn’t their fault! After all, this wasn’t something that was taught in the teacher training.
Fast forward to today where I help Pilates teachers find the right equipment for their needs and keep their equipment safe, smooth, and quiet, so their teaching (and not that squeaky spring) can be the star of the show.
Equipment maintenance isn’t exactly glamorous, but it’s also not that hard and it doesn’t have to be scary or intimidating. You managed to learn hundreds of exercises and practically every muscle in the human body. You can handle dusting the reformer. I’ll show you how.
Say goodbye to black marks on rails, smudges on wood frames, and hair in the headrest with these simple steps.
