Profile

As a personal trainer at a major health club, Ed Morand has been sculpting bodies since 1994. The former Broadway dancer still keeps his day job, but in 2002 he opened his own Pilates studio, a large, light-filled space that has acquired fans of his waist-reduction results and his familial connection (the former inspired by Morand’s “kick ass” rep; the latter, by the mellower approach he now favors for his 55-minute sessions). Students are asked to shelve ingrained behaviors as well as shoes at the door since Morand and his instructors have dismissed the classical approach for one that’s more tailored, be it for individuals or groups of four who are guided through a round-robin circuit—from mats to the Reformer to the newer tower-accented Peak Pilates System.
