Because of their on-going commitment to research and development, STOTT PILATES remains one of the safest and most effective methods of Pilates today. Practitioners of STOTT PILATES include rehab patient, healthy adults, active agers, athletes and celebrities.

Realizing the need to make this updated information available to the public, the Merrithews’ vision was to produce a comprehensive catalogue of technical manuals and supporting visual aids including wall charts and DVDs. The documentation of this material continues to make up the main body of work used in training and certification courses.

To become a fully certified STOTTPILATES instructor, students must complete 500‐plus hours of training along with complete evaluation and examination. Students may enroll in Intensive Mat Plus or Intensive Reformer courses and work towards certification in stages, as their career unfolds. The extensive faculty of Instructor-Trainers continues to develop and refine the STOTT PILATES method to ensure that it is practical, current and relevant.

Today, the company has 49 Licensed Training Centers in addition to the flagship corporate training centre in Toronto, Canada. Merrithew Health & Fitness has trained more than 38,000 students in over 100 countries and is highly respected among the fitness community.
