"Hello PMA! My name is Deb Preachuk. On Saturday May 2nd, 2009 I was privileged to host and celebrate Pilates Day 2009 at Life Time Fitness in Eagan, Minnesota. It was a fantastic and well attended event in a state of the art heated studio! Our theme for the day was 100 people doing the 100! It was so wonderful to see men and women, of all abilities, ages, races and backgrounds enjoying the benefits of a strong principle centered Pilates mat class. Although the event was hosted at a members only facility, we were able to provide guest passes to family, friends and the community at large, thus honoring the concept of providing pilates programming that is accessible and affordable by all!
We received amazing support from YogaDirect.com and the Eagan Life Time Fitness Life Spa. In addition to two STOTT Pilates power packs, YogaDirect.com provided an amazing assortment of prizes to giveaway. Items included a stability ball, yoga mat, blocks, stretch strap and eye pillow. Each participant also received a specially printed discount coupon for 10% of purchases with YogaDirect.com in honor of Pilates Day 2009. The Eagan Life Time Fitness Life Spa donated a hot stone massage as a prize at the event, and provided hot lavender scented towels to each participant at the end of the workout. All I can say is that the whole event and environment was Fabulous!!
This event would not have been possible without the help and support of so many important people. I'd like to thank: Ray Infante at the PMA, Anne West my amazing student volunteer for the event who organized the prizes and took photos, Julie Kiecker (Eagan Life Time Fitness Group Fitness Department Head), Amy Koop (Eagan Life Time Fitness Life Spa Department Head), and Shelly Ouellette at YogaDirect.com Because of their care and support Pilates Day 2009 in Eagan Minnesota was a huge success!"
