A Pilates Program for Olympic Skiers

Bookmark and Share

Back in November, when we were working on Pilates Equipment Circuit Classes , we had the chance to talk at length with Margy Verba, who runs FlowMotion Pilates in Bishop, California, and discovered that she had worked with members of the 2006 U.S. Olympic ski team. In the spirit of Vancouver 2010 Olympic fever, we invited her to share a behind-the-scenes look at the Pilates program she designed for skiers training for the 2006 Winter games in Torino.

By Margy Verba

In the spring of 2005,  I was pondering the next step in my Pilates career. I had been working in the mountain resort town of Mammoth Lakes, California, and was in between studios. Then I got a very interesting call. Both the men’s and women’s U.S. ski teams were coming to do some training at Mammoth Mountain: Did I have time to work with them? Could I start the following week? After reflecting for about half a second, I accepted. I had already put together a Pilates program for skiers; when you work in a ski town, most of your clients are skiers, after all.

Flash Mob Pilates

By Amy Leibrock 

Flash Mob Pilates
When Bethany Mateosian noticed her mat class attendance dropping off in the summer months, she knew exactly why. The summer weather. Mateosian is the owner of Springboard Pilates in Portland, Maine, a place where residents savor their three months of summer as much as possible before the winter buries them in snow again. So while her private and duet clients were committed to their time slots, some of her mat students didn’t seem to want to spend their precious warm-weather time in the studio.

So last summer Mateosian decided to join them by bringing mat class outside—with a twist. She organized a series of “flash mob” classes that she would hold at different public spaces around the city. By the end of the summer, she had created a lot of buzz, added a few new clients and got to enjoy the summer herself.

OK, let’s back up a little bit. You might be wondering what a flash mob is. Flash mobs are typically public stunts, where a group of people gathers at a meeting place, does something a little wacky and then disperses. The meeting place is often communicated by text message and the people might not know one another. (One of the coolest examples was when 100 people froze in place for a minute in New York’s Grand Central Station.)

Mateosian’s version isn’t quite as wacky (but it might be to someone who’s never seen Pilates). And it’s a little more planned. Last summer she would email the when and where  a few days before the class. This year, she’s listed the dates and times on her website, and you have to sign up for her email list to get the location, which she’ll send out a day ahead of time. The once-a-week class is free and meant to keep people engaged over the summer, generate some buzz and enjoy the weather.

“It’s a fun, hip concept but also takes advantage of the fact that in Maine we hibernate all year and then for three months it’s just like crazy summer energy,” says Mateosian. “So being outdoors is really tapping into that sort of natural energy but keeping people coming to Pilates.”

Last year’s locations included an after-work class on a promenade, a sunset class at a beachfront park and a 7:30 a.m. class on the Maine State Pier, one of Mateosian’s favorite spots. “You’re right on the working waterfront and you have the fishermen standing at the end of the dock and the ferry going buy and the sailboats coming in and out,” she says.

Mateosian chose public spaces and made sure there were no events going on. Because she’s not charging any money and the classes were small—usually two to six people—she didn’t investigate getting a permit. She also asked the participants to bring their own towels or mats.

Last summer’s turnout wasn’t huge—a few clients took full advantage and others popped in and out when they could. Bu...

Pilates Pro Newsfeed: A Guy Tries Pilates (and Likes It!)

Men's FitnessAre you still looking for ways to convince men that they’ll like Pilates (and see serious results!)? Point them to this new article from Men’s Fitness, in which a self-described “meathead” describes his inaguaral session with Michael Feigin of Half Moon Pilates and The Fitness Guru in Brooklyn, N.Y.

“Surprisingly, I thought, I might have actually enjoyed myself,” writes Brandon Guarneri. “Anyone who thinks Pilates is for girls, I realized, is working out for the wrong reasons. You’ve got to try stuff you’ve never done before, or you’ll never progress.”
