pilates straps

  • Bring Your OwnThe Pilates community shares so many core values; Health, Inclusivity and Kindness - to name a few...
    What we no longer have to do share is our Pilates straps.
  • Made In DetroitOur single and double loop Pilates straps are manufactured by hand, by passionate Pilates people in the D!
  • Safety FirstUsing your own set of personal, Pilates straps is an excellent way to safeguard yourself and others around you.

Strapdetroit came about in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic when our world, along with our Pilates community, changed for the unforeseeable future. While virtually every surface of our Pilates equipment could be readily cleaned and sanitized, the fabric straps presented a real challenge. It was apparent that Pilates lovers could no longer safely share hand and foot straps. Each person would need their own super fresh and yummy feeling set.

But, it wasn’t so simple to find readily available Pilates straps (not as scarce as toilet paper or bleach wipes but harder to score than a new Peloton!) and they came at a fairly high price (and shipping wasn’t even included!) It became very clear to us our only option was to manufacture the straps ourselves.

At Strapdetroit, we are committed to making high quality, durable, comfortable, and colorful Pilates straps. It is our mission to make practicing Pilates safer by making our straps accessible and affordable.

I am new to Pilates and have been working with Nicole G. I signed up for three private sessions and now I am with the small group classes. Nicole is a great coach, ALWAYS kind and patient with me. She keeps an eye on me and corrects me when I am not doing something 100% correctly, which I appreciate. Nicole takes a quick moment to show me how something is done, especially when it’s a new move. She is encouraging and really cares about you and your progress. I definitely would recommend giving Nicole a call if you are interested in Pilates.

I have been working with Nikki one on one for just 4 weeks and she has transformed my life, no exaggeration! She is joyful energy personified. Working within my limitations of bad knees and hips and current other ailments she has given me renewed strength and energy…I can walk up and down stairs easily now, something I haven’t done in years. She has custom tailored our workouts and I cannot wait to continue to improve my mental and physical health over the next several months. This is life changing and I cannot recommend Nikki and Pilates Detroit enough.

I’ve recently joined Pilates Detroit and just wish I found this place sooner. I am pregnant and signed up to do my private sessions with Nicole. I would highly recommend Pilates for prenatal and postpartum mamas. Nicole is amazing and I love how passionate she is about health and movement. She also does massage and I just made an appointment today to have that service with her. I will update my review once I get that done. I have also taken one class so far with another instructor, Beth. She is wonderful, as well. Overall, I love the ambiance, a clean and comfortable environment, and Allison and her team are friendly and welcoming.

Allison is an expert in her field. She customizes the workout to fit each persons needs. I do a combination of Pilates and PT. Pilates Detroit is a very inviting place to work out. It's the first workout I look forward to. I highly recommend Allison and Pilates Detroit.

I've had an amazing and safe experience here over the last couple of months. I see Allison for PT and do joint sessions w/ Beth and this combo has done so much to alieve symptoms from a long term sports injury. There's no better way to get you Sunday started and become mentally prepared for the work week. Both instructors have taken Covid world quite seriously while understanding the need for people to keep physically active. If you're interested in the benefits of Pilates or have a physical therapy need I'd definitely recommend.

I absolutely love Pilates Detroit! I originally started seeing Allison for back issues several years ago and I've never left. I do a mixture of pilates and physical therapy to keep building strength and to prevent back issues from recurring. Allison is very smart and knowledgeable about the body and its mechanics and I always feel very confident and safe with her recommendations, PT, and workouts. Highly recommend!

I’ve been working out with Allison for 3+ years. She’s great. Allison’s knowledge, professionalism and motivation keeps me on track. I first went in thinking that Pilates was just going to help me stretch, but I soon found out it’s so much more. Do you work on balance, core strength, as well as arm and leg strength, Plus flexibility. Give it a try!

I have worked with Allison to help recover from a broken hip and currently a herniated disk. She combines her physical therapy expertise, personal athletic fitness goals and uses Pilates as vehicle to help strengthen the human body. I not only see the results I am acutely aware of what needs to be done and how to get there. No matter what your goals are Allison can get you there
