When I was looking to expand my studio in Washington, DC, I started thinking about new ways to challenge myself and our students.

I thought of exercises I love and things that really challenge me. Then I thought about what my students love and request in classes regularly. I started brainstorming about exercises, then teamed up with local artisans to build a prototype.

The result is a smart and effective total-body workout on an apparatus that is sleek, space-saving, and affordable. It's also insanely fun. The first Fuse Ladder has evolved for ease of use and to add even more exercise options. For sale now is Fuse Ladder version 4.0.

Fuse Ladder classes debuted at Fuse Pilates in DC in 2016. Demand grew quickly thanks to national media coverage touting it as one of the most innovative workouts in America.
