Who We Are...

Pilates Master Teachers Michael Fritzke & Ton Voogt

Are internationally recognized Pilates presenters, educators, consultants and innovators with over 25 years experience in the fitness industry.

 

They believe that Pilates is both an Art and a Science. It is an Art because it requires ability in execution and it is a Science because it is based on a systematic theory. It is this systematic theory, with concepts and principles, that is the common thread in all approaches, traditional and evolved.

 

Michael and Ton both worked with Romana Kryzanowska, one of Joseph Pilates’ protégés, for over 10 years in New York City where they were Teacher Trainers for her original international Pilates certification program.  Since 1996, Michael and Ton have collaborated specializing in the Pilates method. They co-founded ZENIRGY, LLC. and together they developed and created the revolutionary TRIADBALL™, TRIADBALL™ manual, numerous DVDs (commercial and educational) and several independently owned and operated Pilates certification programs in Norway, Austria, The Netherlands and Portugal. They have also collaborated with a wide range of Physical Therapists to integrate the Pilates method into patient-based therapy programs. Michael and Ton have appeared on ABC, NBC, FOX, Oxygen and Lifetime promoting the Pilates method. Their work has also been featured in numerous magazines and newspapers such as: Pilates Style, Self, More, TimeOut New York, New York Post and others.

            The TRIADBALL™ was used and featured in the Bulletin of NYU Hospital for Joint diseases, “Rehabilitation after Total Hip and Knee Arthroplasty A New Regimen Using Pilates Training”.
