New Product from Balanced Body® Makes Pilates Portable
“Tower on the Go®” Turns any Door into Pilates Equipment
Sacramento, Calif. – October 17, 2008
A challenging, resistance-based Pilates workout is as close as your nearest door with Tower on the Go®, a new product from Balanced Body, the world’s largest Pilates company. Tower on the Go, which attaches to any standard door, offers two choices for resistance options: Slastix™ (soft, fabric-covered resistance bands) or springs (for longer-lasting, fully tested resistance).
“Tower on the Go enables users to perform robust exercises similar to those done on actual pieces of Pilates equipment,” said Ken Endelman, Balanced Body’s founder and chief executive officer. “But the most exciting features of Tower on the Go are its portability and space-saving ability. Now, anyone who wants a great Pilates workout can get one, whether it’s at home, or on the road.”
Quick and easy to set up, Tower on the Go offers sturdy components that won’t scratch door finishes. Two adjustable anchor straps attach vertically to any door. Slider clamps can be adjusted to any preferred height (patent pending), and resistance bands or springs clip onto the straps. Tower on the Go’s design allows unlimited possibilities for adjusting the angle of resistance.
“People who travel frequently can take Tower on the Go anywhere,” said Endelman. “Its compact design fits in a suitcase and sets up in minutes. It’s also perfect for anyone who wants to set up a home studio in a limited space,” he added.
Tower on the Go is available for sale at Pilates.com. A kit with Slastix bands retails for $125, and a kit with springs sells for $145. Both kits include cotton loops plus two door straps with sturdy, non-abrasive attachment points.
