The New Contrology

Benjamin Stuber - Pilates Teacher

“Es ist der Geist der sich den Körper baut.”
("It is the spirit that builds (itself) the body".)
~ Friedrich Schiller


Most Pilates studios leave their equipment woefully untended and unloved. The forces of clients’ bodies and the pressure of the springs can, over time, catastrophically degrade Pilates equipment - resulting in warped performance and potentially dangerous malfunctions. Carriage wheels corrode, straps fray, springs channel - putting clients in peril of injury and studios liable to be sued. A small up-front investment in maintaining the machines can prevent massive damages from a lawsuit. All Pilates studios should periodically maintain, safety check, repair, and replace their apparatuses. And that’s where Benjamin, as a Comprehensive Apparatus Technician, comes in. 

Benjamin’s father taught him woodworking in his tool shop from an early age. In subsequent years through illustration, stage design, puppet construction, and DIY self-education in learning how to repair the decrepit innards of NYC apartments he picked up the skills to maintain and repair Pilates apparatuses. He has also furthered this practice through study of the Gratz machines via Russell Soder. For five years now he has regularly maintained and repaired thecomprehensive suite of classical Pilates equipment as manufactured by Gratz, Basil, Prag, Peak, and Balanced Body. He can also provide contact information and installation for replacement parts.
