Opening in Lake Forest – Mid-May!
Kristen Wolf, Superior Pilates owner/instructor, began her athletic career as a ranked tennis player on the WTA tennis tour. It was while she was playing tennis that she had her first Pilates experience, and she quickly learned first-hand about its unparalleled benefits for physical fitness.
She realized that Pilates was not just a regimen for professional athletes, but that it was also incredibly beneficial for everyone in any walk of life like pre and post-natal mothers, business men and women, golfers, people with back injuries, and the elderly. She became determined to bring these benefits to as many people as she could.
After she retired from the professional tennis circuit, while studying at Northwestern University, she found a studio that taught the original Pilates method and began her training. After undergoing a rigorous 12 months in the training program, she was tested and certified in New York by Romana Kryzanowska, Joseph Pilates’ protégé.
She taught Pilates in Evanston and Chicago for several years in different studios and health clubs, and learned from each experience. These experiences led her to design the “perfect” studio: where all instructors were certified in the original Pilates method, Romana’s Pilates, and all equipment was built by Gratz, the company that built the original Pilates equipment 70 years ago and that still builds to the original specifications of Joseph Pilates.
She opened that studio, Superior Pilates, in Chicago’s River North as a haven for people who wanted Pilates in its purest form in an environment that was designed to be both aesthetically pleasing and physically challenging.
Now, after 10 years, Superior Pilates will open a conceptually identical Studio in Lake Forest in mid-May that will marry Chicago chic with North Shore sophistication located in the Forest Square Mall at 840 S. Waukegan Road.
