"I compare Gratz equipment to the relationship of musicians and their instruments; it's a symbiotic relationship. To help teach the body effectively a Pilates teacher must have the right apparatus. Gratz equipment is the best there is. It's important to teach on apparatus that has the right measurements and proportions. When this changes it changes the dynamic and effort of the workout." - Brett Howard
