KIM CARRUTHERS HAS WORKED WITH MANY CELEBRITIES AND STUDIO EXECUTIVES, BOTH AT PHYSICAL PERFECTION, HER PILATES STUDIO IN HOLLYWOOD, as well as on movie sets, but it’s the organization she founded, Pilates in the Hood, that she finds most fulfilling.

So I founded Pilates in the Hood, a community-based program for adults and children who don't have the same options as others due to financial difficulties, exposure and geography. My inspiration was the prevalence of obesity, lack of healthy options and knowledge of mindfulness in the inner cities.”
