Susan Lucci’s Malibu Pilates is a recent infomercial which airs quite regularly on television, around the clock. The product being sold is a special pilates chair made available by Guthy-Renker which provides a safe, effective way for people to do cardio/fat-burning aerobics, while shaping, toning and building muscle. The infomercial highlights the success stories of many people who provide their own testimonial stories.
In addition to the everyday people profiled in the Malibu Pilates advertisement, there’s also several celebrities on board who support and use the chair regularly. Susan Lucci’s co-star from All My Children, Cameron Matheson, provides a look at which exercises he uses on the Malibu Pilates chair and claims he loves it to keep himself in shape for his various roles. Supermodel Carol Alt is another supporter of the product as is the beautiful blond star Paige Hemmis from Extreme Home Makeover. Mari Windsor, who is another famous Pilates instructor and infomercial star, also appears to lend credit to the product in the infomercial.
The biggest name behind the product though is Susan Lucci, who has played the role of Erica Kane on ABC-TV’s soap opera “All My Children”. Lucci has played her villainous soap opera role for well over 30 years. She’s been in Broadway productions, has also guest-hosted Saturday Night Live and was named one of “VH1’s Top 200 Icons of All-time”. Bringing Susan Lucci’s name to the Malibu Pilates product was a no-brainer. She’s quite the successful entrepreneur having introduced her Susan Lucci Collection of hair care products in 1991, as well as jewelry, lingerie, shoes, and accessory lines for women of all shapes and ages. Susan regularly appears on Home Shopping Network (HSN) to promote and sell her head-to-toe collection. Susan’s work with Gunthy-Renker also includes the Youthful Essence® product, a personal microdermabrasion system which has sold well over 5 million units since it’s introduction in the summer of 2002.
Creator: Caroll Kreiff is the woman who invented this revolutionary pilates chair, even though the infomercial and product carries the superstar name of Soap star, Susan Lucci. The product was co-created by David Krieff. Caroll grew up in Malibu, California where she excelled at sports since an early age as a hampion equestrian, surfer, gymnast, and marathon runner. She began working as a neuromuscular therapist and discovered Pilates and the wonderful health and fitness results it brings with it. Finding that Pilates workouts made her body leaner rather than bulkier, she quickly adopted it into her regimen using it to change her own body. She entered pilates training in New York with with famed Pilates guru Romana Kryzanowska and then upon heading back to CA, continued training at the Performing Arts Physical Therapy Studio in Los Angeles. Caroll opened her first Malibu Pilates Studio upon graduation, and via word of mouth Malibu Pilates grew in demand. Today, Caroll is the host and lead on many fitness DVD projects, and is considered a go-to source for Pilates information for famous clients. She has also been featured in countless fitness publications.
How it Works: The Malibu Pilates® Chair is inspired by the original Pilates Wunda Chair. Caroll designed the chair with the concept of giving people the best results in the least amount of time. The chair’s major claim is to give a workout offering the best of both worlds: fast-paced yet safe aerobic activity along with muscle sculpting movements. These specific exercises help in promoting weight loss and fat burning benefits for anyone who uses the pilates chair consistently.
