About Us

Inspiration for the 8th Avenue Rail

When designing my Pure Pilates studio in 2007, I wanted to create a comfortable, uncluttered space for myself, my instructors, and our students. It was important to me to elevate the client experience, even before their workout started. I wanted the studio to feel welcoming and special the moment they walked through the door.

I started by creating a clean, open layout with enough space for each client to move and feel comfortable during their Pilates session. Finding a soothing fountain of trickling water, comfortable chairs, and decorative accessories were the next easy step in the process.

As I stood admiring my beautiful new Pilates equipment, I noticed an abundance of springs hanging from every eyebolt.

Although this storage method was a common practice, the cluttered look did not evoke the peaceful, open feeling I was seeking. I began looking for the perfect storage vessels for the springs and found nothing to my liking. After a great deal of searching, I realized the storage solution I envisioned did not exist.

So I turned my vision into reality and invented the 8th Avenue Rail. My husband, an architect, brought the idea to life. My father, a talented woodworker, took the design to prototype.

And today, we have the 8th Avenue Rail in its third iteration.

My clients and staff enjoy easy access to the springs. Everyone knows where the springs belong, and they take pride in contributing to the culture of Pure Pilates. It is an amazing part of the studio that contributes to the clean, organized design that lends to the peaceful space I imagined.

The 8th Avenue Rail storage system is handcrafted in the U.S., in New Jersey, where my studio is located.

Katie is a passionate mover who was brought to Pilates through dance. After a professional dance career, Katie discovered her love of teaching-connecting the mind and body, and working with students of all ages and levels. Her appreciation and understanding of everyone’s ever changing body and needs only became greater as her own body went through pre and post natal stages, an experience which has helped Katie navigate problem solving, and bring a freshness to each session making them feel personal and specific to each body’s needs. Her sessions are full of flow and aim to challenge clients with a sense of comfort, and often a little humor, all of which she has brought to Pure Pilates since 2016. Katie thinks the gift of movement and self care is one of the best things one can do for overall wellness, and is thrilled to seek and fulfill milestones and goals with each of her clients. When she’s not at the studio, Katie is taking care of her three little humans- another job that also makes her smile, laugh, and challenges her on the daily.
Eighteen years ago I discovered my love for Pilates. After having my two children, I felt the need to move my body again. At the time I was living in North Carolina, and worked through many different exercise and training programs. I discovered Pilates, and instantly knew it was right for me. Forteen years later, and a move to New Jersey, I decided to share my love of Pilates with other people looking for some way to move their bodies. Pilates has also been a way for me to keep me strong and flexible to continue many activities. My family loves to be active, and I often find when we are all together (mostly vacations) our days consist of activity and movement such as hiking, kayaking, or skiing(more on this later). As I have gotten older I find it even more imperative now that I keep my body strong. Recently I was in a skiing accident that left me with many knee injuries and ultimately having to go into surgery. I found being able to do light Pilates a few weeks after surgery kept me sane and ultimately helped with recovery time. Pilates has not only helped me be able to keep up with my children, but has also provided me with a body that is able to function at peak performance. My approach to Pilates can be described in one, simple word: movement. Movement can help you, both physically and mentally. Movement, and Pilates, is ultimately about self care. Having a built in time to focus on your body and movement can help relieve yourself of feeling tired, anxious, and stressed. Movement awakens you. Even after one session you can leave feeling calmer and energized.
Enjoyment of life through movement is a vital part of Kathy’s philosophy. When not in the studio she leads an active lifestyle trail running, cycling, skiing and hiking. She also loves connecting with people while traveling with family and friends. One of her favorite cycling trips was riding along the coast of northern California. Learning new things and sharing knowledge is also important to Kathy. She has a passion for food, likes to cook for her family and experiment with new recipes. She is currently trying to achieve the perfect pizza. She is also an avid reader of historical fiction and biographies. Her latest endeavor is learning to play golf.
