The Pilates Snob was born out of extreme frustration with the standards the Pilates community has failed to uphold for themselves. TPS is an outlet that supports real, classical Pilates while also calling out the fake and unsafe bullshit that’s perpetuated across the Internet and social media on a daily basis.
Meet the betch behind the brand: Victoria (aka “Vix”) Batha. Unlike most, physical fitness never came easy to Vix. Born at 5'11", her given height applied itself only to tap dancing, a skill she honed from ages 5-15. When she realized it was no longer 1955, she quickly ditched her tap shoes and joined the Lacrosse team, an endeavor that fell just short of complete failure. Though her height ultimately led her to the women's Division I Rowing Team at Syracuse University, it wasn't until after her college graduation that she tried Pilates for the first time and fell in love. Now a self-proclaimed "full-blown athlete", Vix has completed two half marathons and enjoys hunting down anonymous competitors in her Flywheel classes.
She currently lives in New York City and teaches at Alycea Ungaro’s Real Pilates, where she graduated from the Real Pilates Teacher Training Program in 2016. She is a fourth generation instructor in Romana Kryzanowska’s lineage. Aside from designing Snob gear, she is also working on her Masters in Applied Exercise Physiology at Columbia University.
