Special Announcement from the Founder and President of Peak Pilates®

Julie Lobdell

Fifteen years ago I entered a comprehensive teacher-training program in Boulder, Colorado. I was passionate about Pilates and thought that it was the most profound method of exercise I had ever experienced. Leaving a business career behind, I embarked on a two-year journey of study and travel, working with top teachers across the country and visiting Pilates studios to learn about the goals and needs of others like myself. After completing my certification, I realized my path was to return to business and in 1996, founded Peak Pilates with the commitment of providing the finest classical Pilates equipment available.

Along the way I established wonderful relationships with a number of highly respected Pilates professionals and in 2002, with a mutual vision for developing unparalleled education programs grounded in the classic Pilates method, the Peak Pilates Education Division was created. Today we are proud of the reputation and respect we have garnered, from our classic line of wood equipment to our exceptional instructor training programs and seasoned teacher training team. Over the years we continued to build upon our classical foundation by combining our expertise with forward thinking equipment designs and innovative program ideas for broadening the reach of Pilates. Thanks to the loyalty and trust placed in us by so many, I am pleased to say that we have come a long way toward achieving our collective goals. Now it is time for the next chapter in our evolution and growth.

Therefore, I am proud to announce the acquisition of Peak Pilates by Mad Dogg Athletics, Inc., creators of the famed Spinning® program and patented line of Spinner® Bikes. Please join us in embracing this opportunity to partner with a well respected leader in the fitness industry that shares a similar passion for providing best in class equipment, education and instructor support.

Nothing will change at Peak Pilates except our ability to expand our opportunities and offerings. I will remain as President of Peak Pilates in Boulder, Colorado along with our entire team of knowledgeable professionals. In addition to offering the same quality equipment, education and customer experience you’ve come to expect, we look forward to the future and the creation of new products and services that will enhance our commitment to providing the ultimate in value and innovation. As always, we remain committed to supporting the growth of Pilates and the dedicated professionals that we hold in the highest regard. I look forward to the next leg of the journey and sharing it with you - Our customers, partners and colleagues worldwide.

In Health,
Julie Lobdell
