Elisabet and Fredrik Prag, with over 50 years of combined pilates experience between them both. They also have pilates studio in Malmö.

Why is Pilates Scandinavia by Prag Movement unique? The research put into each material and detail was extensive to ensure the combination of the pieces flow perfectly. Just like pilates is about connecting the body, each piece of the equipment plays a part in the larger role of the apparatus. Elisabet likens it to playing an instrument: “There’s a sensitivity to feel the difference in different equipment, so as a manufacturer you need to be able to feel all those vibrations and tones so the notes and overall music resonate into your body creating the right tune. When everything is connected the body reacts deeper, and our aim is for our clients to create the most effective workout using our equipment.

Materials and Production? Everything is produced in Sweden except for the wheels, which are made in the US from the only company in the world that produce wheels up to their standards. The springs are made at a local Swedish steel plant. The leather is sourced from a local Swedish supplier. The wood is ash. The apparatus themselves are constructed by a local Swedish manufacturer.

Joseph Pilates working on Classical Pilates Equipment. Manufactured by Gratz Pilates today
Gratz Industries is the original manufacturer of Pilates apparatus and the industry’s established source for authentic equipment. Our company was started by Frank Gratz in New York City in 1928 as a custom fabrication shop producing industrial design prototypes, architectural metal, furniture and sculpture for many of the world’s greatest designers.

This legacy of high end fabrication and tradition continued with Frank’s son Donald Gratz who applied his engineering and metalworking expertise working closely with Romana Kryzanowska in the late 1960’s. This collaboration with Romana resulted in the preservation of the dimensions and proportions critical to the correct functions of the Pilates apparatus. Thanks to this relationship Gratz maintained a fidelity to Joseph Pilates original vision by fabricating apparatus with unerring craftsmanship and exacting specifications which continues today.
