About Peak Pilates

Peak Pilates is one of the many brands of fitness equipment manufactured and sold by Mad Dogg Athletics. Founded in 1991, the company first debuted its spinning bike to the world, helping to launch this style of gym workout to the heights of popularity. In addition to the equipment, Mad Dogg offered a certification program for spinning instructors. Since then, the company has become known for providing both high-quality fitness equipment and top-notch training and education.

In 2009, expanding its market, Mad Dogg acquired Peak Pilates, an existing brand. Since that acquisition, Peak Pilates has become a leader in both equipment and instruction for Pilates. Other Mad Dogg brands include CrossCore, Ugi, Resist-a-Ball and SpinFitness. The company now runs thousands of fitness facilities and provides equipment and training for instructors around the world.

What Makes Peak Pilates Reformers Special

The Peak Pilates brand originated in Colorado, where the founders took inspiration from the Rocky Mountains and the elegant movements of Pilates workouts. They began to create machines, equipment and accessories that both followed the practices of Joseph Pilates and looked sophisticated and stylish.

Unlike other reformers that are made from metals and plastic, many of the Peak Pilates machines are constructed with natural, beautiful materials. These include traditional types of wood, sustainable bamboo and high-quality metals.

The machines honor the legacy of Joseph Pilates, staying true to his original philosophy of movement and exercise. The Peak Pilates reformers are not overly complicated. They adhere to the integrity of what Pilates set out to accomplish with his inventions.

In addition to reformers, Peak Pilates offers tower systems that can be added to reformers, Cadillacs, barrels, chairs and add-on accessories. The company is also a leader in training Pilates instructors. The education programs teach the original exercises and how to lead others through those movements. The overall approach is one of mind-body, holistic wellness.
