Mari Winsor has been instrumental in bringing Pilates to the mainstream while still managing to stay true to what she learned from Romana. We are huge fans of the way she treats all she meets in business and life so we sat down to ask Mari the secrets to her success. In this interview, Mari shares on her background as a dancer, how she became a celebrity Pilates trainer, and how an attitude of respect should rule your studio. Mari talks about how to carry this quality through in all aspects of business from talking to your clients to dealing with unruly employees or working with celebrities like Patrick Swayze and Al Pacino. Recently diagnosed with ALS, Mari has immediately begun working to bring help to others suffering from this terrible disease.
