Merrithew Health & Fitness Returns to MEDICA with New Fitness


Control breathing, stability and the mind-body connection
Toronto, Ontario, Aug. 15, 2012 – Merrithew Health & Fitness™ makes its second appearance at MEDICA, the world’s largest annual medical trade show, November 14-17 in Düsseldorf, Germany, featuring ZEN•GA™, one of it’s newest fitness brands. ZEN•GA provides a unique blend of the foundational principles of STOTT PILATES®, yoga and dance to create an innovative fusion workout, bringing more mindful movement to every move.

“Our goal is to continuously provide superior products, services and equipment lines for professional and consumer use,” explains Lindsay G. Merrithew, President and CEO, Merrithew Health & Fitness. “ZEN•GA will truly add diversity and complement current rehabilitative program offerings. Professionals and consumers alike will benefit from the experience of our trainers, researchers, and staff who have been in the health and fitness industry for over 20 years.”

ZEN•GA provides clients and rehab patients with more opportunity to leverage various programming in the mainstream fitness and personal training industry. It is another training modality for a healthcare professional to add to their repertoire of skills and offerings or recommend to their patients.

Based on STOTT PILATES foundational principles, ZEN•GA movements engage every muscle, heighten body awareness, and enhance the mind-body connection that are vital to any rehab program.

“When these modalities are combined, your focus will be on clarity of the mind, core stability, stamina, and resilience. With that, we are able to incorporate various pieces of equipment and accessories into the many ZEN•GA programs including the use of the Mini Stability Ball™ set,” says PJ O’Clair, Master Instructor Trainer, Merrithew Health & Fitness. “ZEN•GA increases your awareness to the deep stabilizing muscles of the body through practical restorative exercises. Combining balance, strength and fluid mindful movement, this routine brings a sense of composure to any rehabilitative, group or personal training environment.”
