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.

The 100s!!!
It’s the holy grail of Pilates moves. 
When it is executed with good form, you can see and feel a muscular connection from the top to the very bottom of the body. 
It can be adapted and modified in many ways to meet the needs and abilities of the client. But here, we see it in it’s original form, as taught by Joseph Pilates himself. 
Evan has worked and practiced through many of the variations, and today he displayed complete mastery of the move. ✨🎉💪
Congrats Evan, your efforts have paid off in many ways and your diligence is unparalleled with this beautiful display of strength and focus.
