Mariel Rimkus
Founder of Patriot Pilates
"I created this business to enhance strength, core stability and balance for people of all ages and genders. Following the philosophy of Joseph Pilates by teaching the intrinsic relationship between mind, body and spirit. I like to foster that vision by combining the movement system with focus on breath and core connection.
My background as an athlete and working in the fitness industry combined with my nurturing experience in raising seven children, is what drives me to give everybody that custom workout. We at Patriot Pilates, take pride in being the most result based studio in the midwest!"
