Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 26, 2007
Pilates by Fitness Solutions, Arizona's only Power Pilates-affiliated studio, announced that it will host a three-day open house to celebrate its arrival in central Phoenix's trendy Melrose neighborhood. The open house will run from September 6 - September 8 at the studio located at 4113 North 7th Avenue on the Northeast corner of 7th Avenue and Indian School Road in Phoenix.
The open house will kick off at 5:00 p.m. on September 6 with an informal reception for members of the Seventh Avenue Merchants Association (SAMA), their employees and customers. "We want our neighbors to know what we do here, and we want our clients to know who our new neighbors are," said Lauren Tomasulo, the studio's owner.
Just before moving into the new space, Tomasulo joined SAMA, which has been a driving force in revitalizing the mile-long commercial stretch of North 7th Avenue between Indian School and Camelback Roads. The organization has successfully worked with the city and ASU to fund community re-development and crime prevention projects.
The re-development efforts include permanent art installations along shaded, pedestrian-friendly, walkways which have helped to make the neighborhood a Midtown destination.
The timing of the open house is not accidental. Pilates by Fitness Solutions is located along Artlink's First Fridays Art Walk route, and is a short walk from a stop on the monthly art event's shuttle route.
On Friday, September 7 from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, September 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the public is invited to "sample" Pilates at the studio. Tomasulo and her instructors will lead Pilates demonstrations and abbreviated classes at no charge.
"The studio will be open on Friday and Saturday to anyone who is interested in learning about Pilates and how it can increase their strength and flexibility, as well as improve their balance. Strength, flexibility and balance are important factors in overall fitness,
and the benefits extend to your everyday life and activities," said Tomasulo.
Pilates, which was developed by Joseph Pilates while he was interned in a British prison camp during World War I, has gained currency in the past few years as it has been embraced by celebrities, athletes and ordinary people seeking to improve their fitness.
