As important as offering the traditional teaching of Joseph Pilates is the ability to offer the traditional mats and apparatus. Pilates mats are not the thin, rubbery mats commonly used for yoga: they are raised five inches from the ground, are eight feet long, twenty-four inches wide, and are cushioned and upholstered. Pilates mats also have two wooden handles on one end and a strap under which you can put your feet at the other.
Precision Pilates is the only studio east of Montreal and one of less than ten studios in Canada to have Gratz equipment. Gratz is the company that makes Pilates apparatus using the exact blueprints that Joseph Pilates used for his original equipment. Anything made by other companies is not a replication nor does it provide the same workout or ability to do the exercises as Joseph Pilates intended. It is a very important part of the special offerings at Precision Pilates and adds to its success.
