Claire Mitchell knows numbers! In her job as a Financial Planner, Claire knew things weren’t stacking up for her. She needed to make a change in her career, and a big one. She wanted to do something that was varied, that added spice to her life and that gave her the passion she needed to jump out of bed in the morning. As a client of Studio Pilates Ashgrove, Claire became addicted to her workouts, and soon realised that this was the change she was looking for.
Lizzie Ryan had been a school teacher for years, and like many women, had her 3 beautiful children and took the time away from work to focus on her family. But now, it is Lizzie's time! "I didn’t want to go back into teaching, and wanted to do something that I was passionate about. So when the email came saying that the studio I was attending was selling, I said to my husband 'let’s buy it, it is exactly what I want to do!'
I have to pinch myself most days that I am doing something that not only do I love, but people love me for doing it! I get thanked almost daily just for being open. What an amazing feeling knowing that our team are affecting lives daily. I could never have affected so many people in this positive way if I had opened a pilates studio on my own. But with the SP Franchise model, it has been tried and tested to make sure that we don't fail if we put the effort in. I am so grateful every day that I took this leap!
We’ve gotten what we have always wanted - we wanted to do something that would make a positive impact in people’s lives via healthy lifestyle choices, but at the same time have the opportunity to create wealth for ourselves. We now have two studios with the objective to open several more franchises in Australia, and soon enough we will explore further expanding to our homeland of Indonesia. We would recommend this business to anyone who is driven to be successful."
There are not enough words to express how I feel about being a part of this amazing model and system. Helping clients achieve their health and fitness goals by becoming longer, stronger and leaner is by far, the most rewarding job on the planet. I have so many stories to share and each and every one of them genuinely fills my heart with a tremendous amount of pride and gratitude.
If you have ever thought about becoming a Pilates Instructor or buying a franchise, then the only place to go is Studio Pilates International. They have literally changed my life forever.
