Our Philosophy and Intention

Roots of Integrity, Holistic Fitness & Wellness is built upon the belief that holistic fitness options such as Pilates, yoga, and GYROTONIC® are safe, fun, healthy, and effective fitness plans. Clients at Roots of Integrity receive personal, individualized attention and the highest quality instruction. Sessions with Roots of Integrity are personal, detailed, and will leave you feeling full of energy, peace, and strength.

ROI is committed to serving our clients with INTEGRITY. This means all sales are clear, honest, and direct. We work with a “no muss-no fuss” philosophy: all policies are clearly communicated from day one. In the spirit of professionalism, focus, and non-discrimination, we do not make any exceptions to these policies. This also means we will be clear and candid with the client about goals, physical limitations, and exercise prescriptions.

ROI training is from the “inside-out.” We first work to connect the mind to the body and breath, and teach movement awareness from the spine and pelvis, the ROOT of all movement. All movement should be done with INTEGRITY: thoughtfulness, intention, and proper alignment.

ROI is not only the acronym of Roots of Integrity but also of “Return on Investment.” Our belief is that investing in your health and fitness is an investment that has the best “ROI” (Return on Investment). The fitness methods of Pilates, yoga, and GYROTONIC® energize, strengthen, and improve the overall health of the body, mind, and spirit.

“Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. Our interpretation of physical fitness is the attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body with a sound mind fully capable of naturally, easily, and satisfactorily performing our many and varied daily tasks with spontaneous zest and pleasure.”- Joseph Pilates
