Fitness and Pilates

Developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, the Pilates exercise technique offers a way of building flexibility, joint stability and endurance, while improving balance and coordination. It is a great form of exercise and as our classes are so adaptable, is suitable for people of all fitness levels and abilities.

Marshall Eklund is San Diego’s premier Pilates center and is the only STOTT PILATES® licensed training facility in the city. This is where would-be Pilates teachers come to be trained, and for over 10 years we have set the standards for other schools to follow.

STOTT PILATES® incorporates modern principles of exercise science and spinal rehabilitation using original methods pioneered by Joseph Pilates.

While we can say, without false pride, that we are simply the best Pilates school in San Diego, we are well aware that the most effective exercise program is a well rounded one.

Whatever your goals – weight loss, muscle toning, general fitness, cardio or sports training, you can really benefit with a range of Pilates exercises. These get your heart pumping, make you fitter and build muscle strength, as well as strengthen your heart and lungs and make you look and feel good.

At Marshall Eklund, you can supplement your Pilates sessions with a range of fitness classes and programs. We are able to offer weight and interval training, metabolic workouts and X-Fit all in our state-of-the-art studios. You can rely on the guidance of our trainers who are all professional and sensitive, yet motivating and entertaining.
