At Superior Pilates we only use Gratz equipment to insure the true results from authentic Pilates. We believe that one cannot achieve the same results from other equipment. We have reformers, cadillacs, barrels, spine correctors, wall units, magic circles, wunda chairs, arm chair, big chair and a pedipole and other accessories.
Gratz is the original manufacturer of Pilates apparati and the industry’s established source for authentic equipment. Their New York City custom fabrication shop has been in business since 1929, crafting not only Joseph Pilates’ unique design, but also museum-quality furniture, architectural metal, and sculpture for many of the world’s greatest designers.
Over a half century ago, their company’s patriarch Frank Gratz applied his engineering and metalwork expertise while working with Joseph Pilates. Frank’s son Donald continued this commitment to preserving the integrity of their apparati and in the late 1960’s collaborated with Romana Kryzanowska as she carried on the Pilates legacy. Thanks to these relationships, Gratz has maintained a fidelity to Pilates’ original vision by fabricating equipment with unerring craftsmanship and exacting specifications.
While Gratz is in New York City, their equipment can be found in studios worldwide. Teachers and students know the Gratz difference and consider their apparati an indispensable part of their practice and they are proud to carry on the tradition and serve the Pilates community. You can count on Gratz to protect Joseph Pilates’ vision by respecting the details of every item they produce. Their commitment to Pilates guides our actions. They have provided the finest equipment for a generation of teachers and users.
