What makes the Pilates Method so unique? Pilates is a non-impact, resistance-based system that can be done by literally anyone-- old or young, injured or healthy, athlete or non-athlete. Many people’s bodies have imbalances and weaknesses which may be caused by poor posture, old injuries, stress, lack of strength, tension, inflexibility to name a few.

The benefits of the Pilates are far reaching – like putting money in your retirement account for your future.

MEET THE OWNERS

Gina Brutti & Erin Lutz

Gina Brutti and Erin Lutz are the new ShapeShift Pilates owners. While studying at Cal State Long Beach, the two South Bay natives quickly became friends and soon after, roommates. It was during her college years that Gina discovered Pilates, and in 2005 she completed her training at Long Beach Dance Conditioning. After witnessing Gina’s passion for her career, Erin followed suit and completed her training in 2012 through Pilates Sports Center in Encino, CA. Gina and Erin both completed their Master Trainer certifications through Pilates Sports Center in 2014 and 2017, respectively. In 2018, the friends-turned-Master Trainers become co-owners of ShapeShift Pilates when the original owner retired.
