David Freeman is a prime example of the benefits of Authentic Pilates TM. He started his Pilates training at age 48 (with severe back problems). After experiencing the amazing results in a short period of time, David realized that in order to continue to feel young and energetic he would have to continue doing Authentic Pilates™ for the rest of his life. He sought out Master Teacher Romana Kryzanowska, who was trained by and taught with David Freeman of The Pilates Institute of Fort LauderdaleJoseph Pilates until his death. David took time out from his law practice and trained extensively with Romana for 5 years and obtained his Teacher Certification from her. Now at 70 yrs old (with no back problems) David has experienced the full benefits of this amazing system. Freeman's belief in Authentic Pilates TM was the inspiration behind his opening the Pilates Institute (sm) of Ft. Lauderdale and acquiring the exclusive United States rights to the Joseph Pilates Archives and the New York Pilates Studio ® Teacher Certification Program (the oldest and most comprehensive Teaching Program in the world). David now through his organization, the United States Pilates Association ® LLC, offers instructors throughout the U.S.A. teacher training, seminars, workshops and Archival seminars on Authentic PilatesTM.
