Club Pilates (US) Debuts in Canadian Market
06 Aug 2018 - First Studios to Open in Vancouver and South Surrey, British Columbia and Calgary, Alberta in October
Following its rapid growth in the United States, Club Pilates, the world’s largest Pilates franchise, announced today its first international studio development in Canada. With the boutique fitness trend rapidly gaining popularity in the country, it is the perfect time to introduce a low impact niche fitness concept where consumers can feel benefits to both mind and body. The Canadian expansion will begin in October with the following locations:
Club Pilates Royal Oak: 8650 112 Ave. NW, #4101, Calgary, Alberta
Club Pilates South Surrey / White Rock: 2245 160th St., Unit 20, Surrey, British Columbia
Club Pilates Kitsilano: 2682 West Broadway, Vancouver, British Columbia
Currently, Club Pilates has more than 400 locations open in the United States and is on track to have 600 locations open by the end of the year, with an additional 300 opening in 2019. The brand’s extensive domestic growth has led Club Pilates to turn its attention to Canada.
“With incredibly high consumer demand coupled with our highly successful business model, Club Pilates has seen immense success in the United States,” said Shaun Grove, President of Club Pilates. “With over 400 studios open nationwide and hundreds more in development, Club Pilates has never closed a studio. We’re now excited to bring this incredible success to our neighbors to the north to further our mission of making Pilates accessible to everyone.”
These first studios in Canada are kicking off what expects to be rapid studio growth in the country. “We are expecting to have over 100 locations open in Canada by the end of 2019” says Grove. “There is so much consumer and investor interest. With such a strong brand in the US, we expect expansion to be even faster than the pace we’ve set domestically.”
Club Pilates offers a variety of class options including group and private Reformer Pilates classes, providing consumers a tailored, high-end workout at an affordable price. With nine signature class types offered at four different levels, there is a workout perfectly suited for every fitness level and age. In addition, Club Pilates is the first Pilates brand to create a 500-hour Teacher Training Program created to thoroughly and safely teach group Pilates apparatus classes along with TRX, Trigger Point, and Barre. Teacher Training will be scheduled in the fall at the new Club Pilates studios.
