Standards are consistently high and have led to these referrals.
The business provides three services
• Fitness Pilates group classes
• Clinical one-to-one sessions

The studio opened in September 2011 and was profitable from day 1. The owner suffered her own personal experience with back pain and sought a solution that would work, subsequently developing this business.
The business has grown year on year since the launch through the good services etc. that are on offer.
The brand name of the business is well known and respected in the pilates industry. Many referrals are gained from hospitals and physios who recommend their patients to do pilates.
The business has intelligent apps, IT systems etc. to stay connected with clients, which has reduced costs to the business substantially.
Exercise programmes are tailored specifically to the individual s needs and adapted as the person develops. Designed to help each client achieve the correct balance of flexibility and muscle tone from body sculpting to rehabilitation and injury prevention to better coordination and endurance. Clients leave a session with greater body awareness and control and a reduced level of stress.
The vendor consistantly reinvests in the busienss, it was renovated in March 2018, new reformers and other equipment.
The studio was never built to be based around the vendor and so will happily survive without the owners prescence. All the certified teachers bring years of experience to create a safe and caring environment to transform clients bodies.
This is a super opportunity for a qualified Pilates instructor to acquire this successful profitable business or alternatively a physiotherapist as an add-on to their existing business or anyone interested in the health industry or a career change.

This sector is a booming industry with a very good market outlook. Focused marketing and new thinking to go beyond the present owners vision could gain 100 percent growth.
With focussed thinking a future owner could double the business.
One therapy room is available to rent out or hire staff for services such as massage, physio etc.
Currently there are 65-70 classes spread over the 7 day week operating at 68 – 70% capacity, more classes could easily be added for additional growth.
