Thanks for bringing this to our attention! I'd never heard of this before. I agree with ECCOVISION1 that it does look like the Tower. Let us know if you find out anything about it.

MsBootcamp,

What happened to the Pilates Supreme is indeed a mystery,
Did you ever call Ellen Croft Pilates and ask?
The contact info:
224 South Milpas St.,Suite F
Santa Barbara, CA 93103
info@ellencroftpilates.com
805-636-9466

Please let us know what you find out. I might try to find out by calling Guthie Renker, the manufacturer, if you do not get any answer.

Thank you so much for the Mothers Day greeting!!!
Happy Mothers Day to you!!!

You're welcome, Eccovision1. You've got the right idea. So, I'm still trying to find out what happened. I can't even find any articles about what happened with the Supreme Pilates, which is very odd.

Anyway, it was a great Mother's Day afternoon, playing outdoors with my grandkids. Worked up a medium sweat. Trying to see if I have enough energy for a few minutes of PIlates. Then off to bed.

Happy Mother's Day!!!

MSBOOTCAMP,

Thank you for posting about this device. It seems to be a great and inexpensive version of the Pilates tower. I agree with you that it is unfortunate that this equipment is no longer available.

Interesting piece of equipment. I saw an ad for one for $75, so sound like it's not being manufactured any more. I'm setting up a gym area and that piece of equipment would fit in nicely.

Hello, Hawkthree. Supreme Pilates (which was marketed by California Pilates instructor Ellen Croft) is completely separate from the mini-trampoline. I just mentioned them in the same sentence, because I enjoy working out with both, along with other fitness methods and tools (equipment).

The Supreme Pilates apparatus came out around 2006-2007. But something happened, because, at some point, it simply "disappeared." So far, I can't even find any articles available online about what happened.

What I DO know is, personally, I still enjoy this simple yet effective piece of fitness equipment. After a very long break, I just finished setting mine up again. I did a few, basic moves, and it felt so good. In a few weeks, I'll check to see my results.

So, I figure there are other Supreme Pilates fans out there!

Good luck to everyone in hitting our fitness goals!

I'm off to google what this is. I own a mini-trampoline but never associated it with Pilates.

Hi, everyone. I'm MsBootcamp. I've been part of SP quite awhile.

My fave Pilates are using my (Ellen Croft) Supreme Pilates apparatus/frame, using more traditional Pilates apparatus, and mat Pilates. I also enjoy yoga, strength training, etc., but the workout I do most consistently is on my mini-trampoline, basically daily.

So, I'm really curious to see if there are other folks here who are Supreme Pilates fans.

Spring is here, and summer and fall are on the way, so I am in workout-season heaven.

Good to join you!
