The Hooked on Pilates® (HOP) Story

Hi! I'm Martina, a physical therapist, Pilates instructor, massage therapist, anatomy nerd & entrepreneur...which I guess...makes me a Jill of all health & wellness trades!:) My mission is getting more people doing Pilates! However, Pilates equipment can be big & expensive. As a practical problem solver, I created the Minimax & Handibands which makes Pilates more adaptable, portable & accessible. Both patented products can be used together or separately of each other AND with or without traditional Pilates equipment. Safety, quality & versatility are important to me - as is helping people on their fitness journey. Focused mindful exercise does the mind, body & spirit good! This is especially true for people who feel out of control because of injury, illness, pregnancy or inactivity. Discover the Pilates difference and achieve your top form! Breathe * Stretch * Strengthen * Evolve


    "The Minimax is amazing!!! The little details, the nonslid feature, shape, quality, versatility, how light it is. I could go on & on...the possibilities are endless..awesome job Martina!!! Now I need to write about the Handibands, which are also incredible!" Marcela Villani, Studio Owner & Instructor

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes up the costs of the Minimax?

It's the foam!

Have you ever gone couch shopping? The difference between an inexpensive and a deluxe couch is the amount and quality of foam.

The Minimax's ENTIRE insert is made of premium Americam made high density foam.

P.S. The custom vegan leather covering is made locally in sunny Colorado!

What makes the Handibands different than other resistance bands?

The Handibands are your grab and go resistance band SYSTEM.

Never forget or lose a handle, foot loop, door anchor, foam roller or reformer attachment. Everything is attached!

P.S. 100% customizable to you height and space!

Does my studio need another arc barrel?

The Minimax is guaranteed to create smiles not grimaces - NO pain on boney parts!

Transform your studio of reformers into a studio full of ladder barrels!

Carry four at a time for easy class set up. Very lightweight - clients can easily mange themselves.

Its unique shape opens up NEW modifications and exercises so clients connect better with their bodies.

Will the Handibands break?

Unfortunately, yes.

The Handibands' elastic strap is more durable than other resistance tubing or bands. However, it will eventually break.

Economical replacement straps may be purchased on this site - making the Handibands a sustainable option.

What's the difference between the orange & green Handibands?

The orange Handiband has less resistance than the green.

The orange Handiband is similar in resistance to a red Theraband® and the green Handiband is the similar in resistance to a blue Theraband®

P.S. By adjusting the Handibands' length, you are able to increase or decrease its overall resistance.

They even attach to foam rollers for even more mat exercises.
