- Living a full life requires a healthy body that is ready and able to meet the physical demands that arise from everyday living. Stacey Redfield is a physical fitness “fix-it” expert who can teach you the secret to living a healthier life, simply by taking better care of your body.
Stacey takes a commonsense approach to health and offers a unique point of view and advice for your body’s day-to-day needs. Stacey gives practical exercise solutions to the most common physical problems, such as back and knee pain, as well as exercises that really work to get rid of that wing that hangs under the arm and the dreaded muffin top…although it does help if you stop eating the muffins.
The reality is that your body needs to last a lifetime. Finally, there is someone who can help make that happen.
- The Physical Methods™ studio is a boutique-style setting, which is home to Stacey’s unique system of exercise. Located in Bethlehem, Pa., Physical Methods™ continues to offer small exercise classes, during which Stacey can provide personal attention to ensure that you get the results you deserve from your workout. Stacey also offers private instruction and consumer and teacher workshops for teaching her system of alignment.
All studio workouts use the machines invented by Pilates (along with a few things that Stacey has developed on her own). Stacey discovered through her research, that even though Pilates’ exercise system was ineffective in producing the results for which he is known, his machines are perfect for supporting and developing the human alignment.
“My work on the machines is an evolution of what Pilates introduced to America in the 1920s. What I have done is use the centuries-old idea of exercising to correct the body, changed the focus, and turned it into a mainstream workout that is fun and challenging; but most importantly...it really works.”
- Stacey is a certified teacher through the Pilates Method Alliance, an international trade organization. She is widely recognized as the leading historian on the life of Joseph Pilates and his contribution to the fitness industry, formerly known as physical culture. Stacey has published several articles on topics ranging from health and wellness to the history of Joseph Pilates, and is currently working on her first book, The Hollow Chocolate Bunny Syndrome, an expose’ on the fitness industry.
Stacey has presented her work and research to women’s organizations and corporate and educational groups as well as international trade organizations. Her unique, no-nonsense and entertaining approach to health and fitness translates across a broad spectrum of industries to impact medical professionals, personal trainers and physical education teachers.
Aside from Stacey’s experience as a Pilates teacher, which began in 1999, she has studied anatomy and physiology, functional anatomy, gross anatomy, massage therapy, and movement.
Stacey’s early career accomplishments include education and experience in the fields of business and fashion merchandising. Stacey was the first to develop a line of clothing geared specifically for the Pilates professional and also developed the “Towel,” a sustainable exercise accessory that transforms the arms and aligns the upper body.
