Athlon comes from the Ancient Greek word ἆθλον (Athlon) meaning prize or (sport) contest, and this eventually gives us the words athlete and athletics.
Pilates can enhance your athletic performance whether you are a golfer, skier, surfer or weekend outdoor adventurer. It will give you the edge to excel and improve performance.
At Athlon Pilates Academy we want to support the development of improving movement patterns, reducing injury, increasing athletic performance and improving technique. Working together with Pilates Teachers and Coaches to respect and learn from each other. Assisting athletes to acquire skills by training safety and effectively thereby enhancing the performance.

To achieve the highest accomplishments within the scope of our capabilities in all walks of life we must constantly strive to acquire strong, healthy bodies and develop our minds to the limits of our ability.
