The Home Stretch was founded in 1997 by Julie Mazer. The Home Stretch Studio is a fully-equipped professional Pilates studio located on a quiet residential street in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood, near Southport and Diversey.

Pilates exercises are performed on several types of apparatus. The apparatus work evolved from Pilates’ original mat work. On the apparatus, springs and gravity are used to assist an individual to be able to complete movements successfully. Ultimately, by altering the spring tension or increasing the
challenge of gravity, an individual is progressed toward achieving higher levels of functional movement and fitness.

Home Stretch Studio is equipped with state-of-the art Pilates equipment including:

  • Reformers
  • Trapeze Table
  • Ladder Barrels
  • Arcs, Flex Rings, Swiss Balls
  • Wunda Chair
