It’s meet the Mentor Friday! Today’s guest is Patricia Welter, Director and Owner of Suncoast Pilates Studio in Palm Harbor, FL. She’s passionate about teaching Pilates and improving the health of so many people through movement.


First question you want to know is, what is Pilates?

Pilates is a series of  full body exercises that can be performed in home, office or a Pilates studio.  Anyone of any age can do Pilates. It was created by German born Joseph Pilates in the early 1900’s, Joe used his Mat work during WWI for men, while he was in an internment camp in England, to keep his fellow internment buddies healthy and fit.  Pilates has grown into a global, proven exercise regimen. Joe created his exercise protocol as an entire system, developing and patenting equipment he created and in conjunction with his Mat work. Today, Pilates is highly adaptable and all parts of the body get a whole body workout each time.
