When Deborah Lavinsky, PMA-CPT, was training to become a Pilates instructor, one of the requirements was to design an individualized training program. One of her clients had osteoporosis – a medical condition that causes bones to become brittle and fragile from loss of tissue – so Lavinsky began researching a training plan for her.

While doing research, she found videos by Rebekah Rotstein, the founder of Pilates for Buff Bones, a medically endorsed system that combines Pilates, functional movement, strength training and therapeutic exercise with bone-strengthening and balance techniques to optimize the health and safety of bones, according to the buff-bones.com website. “It just made so much sense and I really liked how she put it all together,” Lavinsky says.
