Merrithew Health & Fitness™ (MH&F) has been going around the world celebrating the 25th Anniversary of their premier brand, STOTT PILATES®, with the Merrithew Mindful Movement World Tour (#mmm2013) and will return home to Canada this December. Coming to Toronto December 13 - 15, this symposium provides fitness professionals and enthusiasts alike with first-class training in mind-body modalities plus a rare opportunity to work with MH&F Master Instructor Trainers who are some of the fitness industry’s most respected and inspirational names.
“It’s incredible to see the growing interest in mind-body fitness across the world,” says Lindsay G. Merrithew, CEO & President of Merrithew Health & Fitness. “In 1988 at the beginning of this journey, we were training clients out of our Toronto studio apartment. Now the company has evolved to having trained almost 38,000 instructors around the world, 4,400 of them from Canada. In addition to having an undisputed global presence, our Corporate Training Center in Toronto has grown to be an international leader attracting fitness professionals from every continent.”
“The Merrithew Mindful Movement World Tour is visiting 11 cities worldwide and the first half of the tour trained almost 500 instructors,” shares Moira Merrithew, Executive Director, Education. “Lindsay and I founded the company on the philosophy that effective and responsible exercise is the foundation to a better lifestyle. Twenty-five years of experience in evolving the STOTT PILATES method has allowed our team to develop three additional high-end branded education, Total Barre™, CORE™ Athletic Conditioning & Performance Training™ and ZEN•GA™, all of which uphold that same philosophy while adapting to current trends in the industry. We look forward to sharing the most up-to-date training with the Canadian fitness community.”
