The testimonials are rolling in...

As we roll into summertime and run from the hamburger and hotdog calories, thank heavens for Xtend and its result oriented program. These testimonials just came in from South Tampa Pilates and Avenue Pilates who have recently begun to license our program. Sharing these thoughts with you is an honor and it is with pride that we congratulate the students that partake in Xtend at each of their studios. Cheers to your new bodies...

Hi Andrea,
Everything is going so well-Thank you! This has really put a boost into our "summertime" morale.We are very happy to have Xtend as part of our studio. The Xtend workout is amazing! Bringing Xtend to Avenue Pilates is one of the best decisions I have ever made. The clients love the workout and they are getting fantastic results." Avenue Pilates

Xtend is the m
ost organized, most well thought out program out there for Pilates studio owners. Her video support is amazing! She's so on it, so easy to work with. I knew the system was high quality, but how easy she's made everything is beyond words. Her training manual is so much nicer, being able to go online and log in and throw out questions to other teachers is a bonus. She's going to blow everyone away in the market! South Tampa Pilates.

The students learned 'soon to come' new moves and applauded the Xtend founder as she ended the class.

This 'core' group has nothing but amazing things to say about Xtend and it was a beautiful thing to come and see the new bodies that have been sculpted by the program.

Congratulations Renaissance for keeping the pace for Xtend in the NYC area!

A new-age workout for young aspiring dancers

Andrea Rogers gave an all-out stellar Xtend Master Class to several members of Broadway Dance Center tonight from 4:30 to 6pm. The class ranged from teen boys to a young 14 year old aspiring dancer who recently moved to NYC from Florida to pursue a career in dance to many women in their 20's who gave it their best with our new Xtend moves. This was our first opportunity to introduce the class to the open door of dance aficionados that hover the halls and dance their hearts out in this mega capital of stars-and it proved to be a success. Comments made after class include:

“Wow, you need to come here more often to teach,” and

“When are you coming again?”

“How can we get this class at BDC all the time,” and the classic,

“OMG! That was hard. Amazing, but hard.”

If you were in the class or were one of the dancers watching from the window, thank you for your interest and support and keep the good buzz going around BDC- we’d love to come back many times!

The time has come for all studios to realize their potential. Are you loosing clients that share your time with the gym? If you answer yes to this question, it may be a good idea to implement Xtend at your studio. Xtend can be viewed as "cardio Pilates" or even "boot camp" for Pilates.

Our licensees take advantage of a VIP members only area where they can utilize and download specific marketing and PR tools that can lead to building their business. We're giving you a hint. Mostly all of these products are password protected, but the studio letter is one that isn't. Take a peek and see what you could be doing to get more from your clientelle.

Press, press and MORE press

New Orleans Studio, Nola Pilates, heats up the beginning of summer with a hot press story on Xtend. Teachers, if you’re reading this, get excited about the benefits that Xtend can bring to your facility. Women are shaping up and feeling better than they did-even when they were back in college years. How? Xtend is an intense workout; hands down. Women get the ability to have a little bit of cardio mixed in with their Pilates routine, with a touch of dance. The news anchors in New Orleans certainly enjoyed this story. Medical Experts had this to say:

"... Body fat is on the surface and it also is within the muscle. But if you lose muscle fat then you have leaner muscle," said Dr. Kim Edward LeBlanc, the head of Family Medicine at LSU Health Sciences Center. And while there is no science about physically making a muscle longer, Xtend is doing something good for the muscle and entire body.

Wow! If you’re currently an Xtender, are you so excited to go to class today after reading this? And if you’re ready for a possible licensee program, or if you’re currently holding a license, get ready for a hot summer, take advantage of your sample press release from our website and work your magic!

Sold Out Crowd! First Time Xtenders Applaud The Workout.

Today we hosted a sold-out crowd to Xtend newbies at Renaissance Pilates. Legs were shaking, women were sweating and the overall buzz on the street is that Xtend is challenging. More than 4 Pilates enthusiasts used the same word to describe this new program. The word"humbling" was ablaze among the woman that braved this new fitness regime. To be aware of your body is a joy that Xtend loyalists are learning, and with a sold-out crowd in the most elegant studio setting at Renaissance, we were able to capture futuristic thoughts about what's going to happen in months to come. We'll keep you posted as these leading ladies find their perfect body shape with founder, Danielle Buccellato at Renaissance Pilates, Hoboken, NJ.

Check out the end result here:

Xtend razzle dazzles Hoboken… and all that jazz

They say the stars shine on Broadway and that Hoboken is the home of Frank Sinatra. This weekend, we have proof that the stars are shining in Hoboken and there’s a new “ title” to include in this cozy little town… The home of the first Xtend teacher training studio on the east coast.

Xtend™ hit the trendy waterfront scene and Renaissance Pilates, opened its doors to Andrea Rogers. Danielle Buccellato, Renaissance founder, will be the first to implement the program in the NYC area.

She also welcomed Dance Captain of CHICAGO the musical, Gabriela Garcia, as she scoped out the Pilates and dance AMPlified regime. What did she think? Find out in this must-see video.
