"We use Gratz because it works. Period. There is nothing else like it. Gratz is made with the finest materials and is the only equipment that provides not only visible results, but a deep feeling of connection and new found body awareness that is unmatched.The engineering of each apparatus allows for the right tension, alignment and resistance necessary to perform each exercise with strength and control."

Kari Hayden - Owner of

Palm Pilates Studio



Palm Pilates Studio is a small yet growing studio in the charming Old Florida village - Englewood. A Gulf Side boating and  fishing town that attracts people seeking a low-key, relaxing vibe. Palm Pilates offers private lessons and group mat classes.  The studio is located on historic Dearborn Street. Dearborn Street was the birthplace of many "firsts" in the area. Dating back to the 1930's, Dearborn Street was the 1st for a newspaper, a 1st for a medical doctor - a 1st for a newspaper and 1st for a bakery amongst many others. So, now, Palm Pilates is the 1st Authentic Pilates Studio featuring Gratz Equipment in the area.
