Pilates equipment maker Balanced Body named NK Trading as its exclusive distributor in South Korea. NK Trading is based in Seoul.

“We are proud to partner with NK Trading as their commitment to quality and service is unparalleled in South Korea, and that’s what Balanced Body customers expect,” said Tony Tran, area manager supervisor for Asia sales with Balanced Body. “The Pilates market in Korea is experiencing significant growth and NK Trading is perfectly positioned to capitalize on that growth with their comprehensive customer service programs, and specialized delivery and installation services.”

In June, NK Trading produced the fifth annual Balanced Body Pilates on Tour Seoul event, with a record attendance 325-plus guests from 12 different countries. This was the largest-ever Pilates on Tour event, a 14-year-old continuing education conference series for Pilates and movement professionals.

With more than 40 years of state-of-the-art engineering and product innovation under its belt, Balanced Body was the first to substantially update Joseph Pilates’ original equipment.

The company’s founder and CEO, Ken Endelman, has been awarded 28 U.S. patents for his Pilates-related inventions. Balanced Body has more than 200 employees and is headquartered in Sacramento, CA, where most of its equipment is manufactured.
