"Method Putkisto works because it respects the boundaries and current conditions of every human body. It is systematic and has a logical progression promoting the potential of human biomechanics and physiological structure providing the foundation for each and every movement of the body. The quality of MP is in its unique teaching method and exercise regimes - all well thought out. It is suitable for everyone and works on each person's structure moving them toward their optimum and closer to their ideal body. It is also taught by well-educated instructors".

Professor Esko Mälkiä
