Mary Steiner gathered with her friends, fellow business owners, clients, Mayor Richard Udd and Cedaredge humorously dubbed Queen Cathy Meskel on Wednesday, March 15 2023 to cut the purple ribbon representing the opening of her studio, Aspire Pilates. The event was organized by the Grand Mesa Business Guild, a new nonprofit in the Surface Creek area gathering businesses to shine together.
Meskel opened the ceremony with a welcoming spirit and talked about her experience getting to know Steiner, owner of Aspire Pilates.
“I have learned about how dedicated you are to what you are doing," Meskel said. "Your passion is amazing in helping people learn about Pilates. Your journey is powerful and is also to be commended. You help people feel better physically and emotionally, and your goal is to give back to the community with the help of Pilates and that is quite a passion."
Meskel welcomed Steiner to the community.
With a countdown, Mary cut the ribbon symbolizing the gift of her studio, expertise, equipment and passion being open to the Surface Creek community and all folks visiting the area.
Steiner thanked everyone for coming to the ceremony and invited everyone present to come in for a session and try the reformers.
"When my husband and I moved here, we moved because it was such a special sense of community," Steiner said, "and ever since we moved here, everyone has welcomed us into the community. Thank you so much to everyone for showing up.”
Mayor Udd offered further encouragement.
“This kind of thing going in on Main Street really shows where this town is going," he said. "Not many towns have a whole Pilates studio, so thank you for doing this.”
Steiner is Peak Pilates certified and is said to personalize every session to each individual body. She customizes experiences for men and women of all fitness levels, mothers-to-be, athletes, golfers, folks with back issues, fishermen and more. She also partners with physical therapists as further effort to develop health, balance and strength. She is currently offering private and duet sessions and specialty mat classes.
