Company Details

Joseph Pilates developed the traditional pilates system in the 1930's. He was an amazing inventor but in the height of his program development he was working with professional dancers not the general "fit" public. He also did not have the advantage of modern science to guide his choices in alignment, muscle recruitment and stabilization practices. IM=X? Pilates updates traditional concepts and practices reflecting the newest research on fitness and rehabilitation. IM=X Founder, Elyse McNergney, also incorporated elements of Yoga, Cycling, Barre and Functional Fitness to create a truly integrated fitness experience. For this reason, IM=X? has been described as the "next evolution of Pilates".?

IM=X Pilates was established as a certification program and equipment manufacturing company in 1996 and opened the first franchise unit in 2005. There are currently 37 studios open and territories are available in all 50 states as well as Canada.?
