The Alternative to a Club Pilates Franchise

The booming fitness Industry is generating a high level of interest in franchise opportunities . But entrepreneurs want a Franchise that avoids the pitfalls associated with the larger Pilates chains.


Club Pilates is the largest of these, having expanded widely in the USA, but many potential studio owners are looking for an alternative, exploring other Pilates franchise opportunities with a different approach.


And that’s where Studio Pilates International comes in. This fast growing international franchise has figured out robust solutions to all the common pain points that studio owners experience because it was started as a tiny two-person business back in 2002, with the start up funding coming from the credit cards of the two co-founders, when they could not get a bank loan for the $10,000 that they needed.


Fast forward to today and Studio Pilates is expanding rapidly across the USA, Australia, New Zealand and China. Right now there are franchise opportunities across the United States, presenting a viable alternative to their larger competitors. The primary difference and advantage of opening a Studio Pilates branded franchise is when you do, you’re joining a family.


While they are already operating across more countries than any other Pilates franchise in the world, Studio Pilates still remains a family-owned and operated franchise network globally. This flows through into the support and overall experience that their franchisees receive.


This family feel is at the core of the brand, and as a franchisee, always having someone to call and to talk to about what is going on in your studio is a key strength of the organisation and remains one of their key points of difference.


Another key factor in the phenomenal success of the Studio Pilates organisation has been that the co-founders have both instructed Studio Pilates classes for over a decade with husband and wife team Jade and Tanya Winter now holding the roles of global CEO and the VP of Instructor Training respectively.


This practical experience from the ground up has been one of the primary reasons for a rock-solid base of successful businesses. Many franchise systems are run by men in suits that have never instructed a class before, while practical hands-on knowledge is king in the Studio Pilates International organisation.


One of the many pitfalls experienced as a franchisee in most Pilates chains, and as an independent operator, is a shortage of great instructing staff. The Studio Pilates Franchise company solved this problem at the outset, and lead the field in generating world-class instructors rapidly, with a best-in-class training program for staff.  Chronic staff shortages simply don’t exist in the Studio Pilates International franchise network which is a huge advantage for our franchisees.
