Pilates by Fitness Solutions Offers a ‘Taste of Pilates’: Melrose District Studio to Host Weekend-Long Open House

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 26, 2007

Pilates by Fitness Solutions, Arizona’s only Power Pilates-affiliated studio, announced that it will host a three-day open house to celebrate its arrival in central Phoenix’s trendy Melrose neighborhood. The open house will run from September 6 – September 8 at the studio located at 4113 North 7th Avenue on the Northeast corner of 7th Avenue and Indian School Road in Phoenix.

The open house will kick off at 5:00 p.m. on September 6 with an informal reception for members of the Seventh Avenue Merchants Association (SAMA), their employees and customers. “We want our neighbors to know what we do here, and we want our clients to know who our new neighbors are,” said Lauren Tomasulo, the studio’s owner.

Just before moving into the new space, Tomasulo joined SAMA, which has been a driving force in revitalizing the mile-long commercial stretch of North 7th Avenue between Indian School and Camelback Roads. The organization has successfully worked with the city and ASU to fund community re-development and crime prevention projects.

The re-development efforts include permanent art installations along shaded, pedestrian-friendly, walkways which have helped to make the neighborhood a Midtown destination.

The timing of the open house is not accidental. Pilates by Fitness Solutions is located along Artlink’s First Fridays Art Walk route, and is a short walk from a stop on the monthly art event’s shuttle route.

On Friday, September 7 from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, September 8 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the public is invited to “sample” Pilates at the studio. Tomasulo and her instructors will lead Pilates demonstrations and abbreviated classes at no charge.

“The studio will be open on Friday and Saturday to anyone who is interested in learning about Pilates and how it can increase their strength and flexibility, as well as improve their balance. Strength, flexibility and balance are important factors in overall fitness,

and the benefits extend to your everyday life and activities,” said Tomasulo.

Pilates, which was developed by Joseph Pilates while he was interned in a British prison camp during World War I, has gained currency in the past few years as it has been embraced by celebrities, athletes and ordinary people seeking to improve their fitness.

The Importance of Word Choice in Expert Witness Reports

You’ve probably heard the phrase: “it’s not always just about you.” The expert report is not just an expression of your opinions for your own satisfaction. Before you qualifications it, you cannot realize how greatly the words you choose, and the way in which you form your sentences, will affect the legal results. Your attorneys and the opposing attorneys will look more closely at what you say and how you say it than any English teacher you ever had.
Quite simply, your attorney wants to be able to quote things you say to help him make his case. The opposing attorney would love to be able to quote things you say that are either wrong or poorly expressed. He would love for you to provide him with ammunition for cross examination. He wants to hear sentences or adjectives that make you sound uncertain, and that may even enable him to use your words to support opposing points of view.
Similarly, you will have the task of reading the opposing expert’s report and looking for weak technical work or wording that your retaining attorney can undermine or attack.

Your goal in reviewing the other expert’s report is to identify the technical strengths and weaknesses found there. This will help your attorney in his effort to discredit the other expert and/or his work. Knowing what to include in your own expert report should make obvious what omissions or errors to look for in the other expert’s report.
Maneuver carefully with your opinions. You must sound sure. You must be confident of your opinion. Don’t use hedge words or phrases, a common weakness in expert reports. In your reconstruction of an event, or as the result of your tests and analyses, you may reach a firm conclusion. Say so in your opinion. Do not use words like “seemingly,” “possibly,” “possibly,” “maybe” or even phrases like, “it appears that,” “it may be that,” or “it usually is the case that.” If you use phrases and words like these, I can assure you that your opinion will not be helpful. The other attorney will interrogate you about alternative ways to interpret your opinion. He will use your own hedging phraseology to suggest that your opinion should not be taken as credible or convincing. Why should the jury be convinced if you don’t even sound convinced?
By the same token, avoid absolutes, unless a condition about which you are talking is truly a sure thing with no exceptions. Just remember that is rare.
You may wonder exactly how to express your opinion when you do not believe that something is 100% certain, but are confident it is or was true. Here is the answer. The strongest and most acceptable phraseology when expressing each of your opinions is to meet the criteria that you are stating the opinion “…to a reasonable degree of scientific certainty” or “…to a reasonable degree of medical certainty.”

Judd Robbins has been an internationally recognized expert witness since 1986 in the US and in the UK. In 2010, his book “Expert Witness Training” was published by Presentation Dynamics. Robbins has advanced degrees from UC Berkeley and the University of Michigan, has been an Information Systems manager and an Education Systems manager, and consults in both computer and legal issues.

Is Your Pilates Instructor Experienced? Pilates by Fitness Solutions to Conduct 18-Hour Power Pilates Mat Certification

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) September 26, 2007

Pilates by Fitness Solutions will host an 18-hour Power Pilates-approved mat certification class from September 28-30 at its central Phoenix studio. Power Pilates is the New York-based standard bearer for classical Pilates education and Pilates by Fitness Solutions is the only Power Pilates Participating Training Center in Arizona.

“There are not enough qualified Pilates instructors to meet the demand from people who want to learn the method,” says Lauren Tomasulo, the owner of Pilates by Fitness Solutions. According to the Pilates Method Alliance, a non-profit organization of Pilates instructors that promotes a classical approach to the discipline, Ms. Tomasulo is right.

In 2005, the organization found that some 9 million Americans had taken a Pilates class and that more than 60% of gyms and fitness centers offered Pilates instruction. However, the group estimated that only about a quarter of Pilates instructors were adequately trained to instruct their clients safely.

As the method has gained popularity, modified versions of the classical approach have emerged, including Pilates performed in pools and on burlesque poles. Pilates classes that promise to improve sports performance have also become popular. According to Ms. Tomasulo, these trends point to the need for instructors who are very well-versed in the classical approach to Pilates.

“Pilates is a system of stretching and strengthening that engages the core, the neck, and the spine,” said Ms. Tomasulo. “Pilates can be beneficial in strengthening those areas, and, for some people, even therapeutic; but those are areas of the body that are particularly vulnerable to debilitating injury. You want to ask a prospective teacher about their experience and education.”

The 18-hour mat certification class will be taught by Alicia Zabrocki of Power Pilates. During the certification course, fledgling instructors will learn how to conduct a one-hour mat class which is performed on the floor without the method’s signature apparatus. Besides the class, students must pass a written exam to become certified, and they are expected to have a working knowledge of basic exercise physiology.

Mat certification is the first step in completing the 600 hours of training and education that Power Pilates requires instructors to have to become fully certified to teach classical Pilates. Tomasulo is herself fully certified by Power Pilates, and maintains that certification through continuing education.

Besides training aspiring instructors, Pilates by Fitness Solutions will host continuing education classes for Power Pilates certified instructors in November 2007.
