Russell has studied Pilates apparatus as it exists today in every model, brand and material. Whether in a sales, consulting or practicing capacity, he always comes back to find Joe’s original intentions shouting through the years, amplified by a classical machine.
Russell is dedicated to spreading the word about apparatus maintenance and safety. He is the Managing Director at Pilates Lineage, where he gets to bring back many of Joe’s original pieces, utilizing superior quality manufacturing and uncompromising authenticity. Prior to this, he was with Gratz Industries, as Technical Director for the Pilates division and with The Pilates Guy in Los Angeles and New York, as a master studio technician. He lives in Rhode Island with his beautiful family – his wife and co-pilot Angela and their two daughters.
