Nation’s Largest Pilates Brand Reaches Monumental Milestone; Solidifies Spot as Industry Leader   

COSTA MESA, Calif. – Club Pilates, the largest and fastest-growing Pilates franchise in the world, announced today the signing of its 500th franchise agreement. The monumental news comes on the heels of a recent investment made by TPG Growth, the middle market and growth equity platform of alternative asset firm TPG, the global private investment firm.

Club Pilates has witnessed a record year of growth, primarily in major markets across the country, with studios expected to open in the coming months in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Dallas, Houston, New York City, Chicago and San Francisco.  It also recently announced deals in other previously untapped markets, including New Mexico, South Carolina, Alabama, Montana, and Virginia. Momentum has largely been driven by the brand’s unparalleled and premium service, state-of-the-art equipment, membership packages tailored to each market and empowering atmosphere.

“This milestone reflects the significant momentum we have gained in building a premier fitness concept that caters to people of all ages and fitness levels, with a convenient, affordable and quality workout,” said Anthony Geisler, CEO of Club Pilates. “Our 500th franchise agreement is an achievement we reached largely due to the talented, multi-unit investors who have joined our team. We hope to continue to attract these same quality franchise prospects as we continue to build Club Pilates into a household Pilates brand.”

Club Pilates is the nation’s largest and fastest growing Pilates brand. Founded in 2007, it offers group reformer Pilates classes, providing consumers a tailored, high-end workout at an affordable cost. The brand currently has 191 locations open in 35 states and with over 20 studios opening per month, the brand is on track to have 350 studios open by the end of 2017.

In an effort to help further expand the brand, Club Pilates is seeking qualified franchise partners to develop studios in prime territories across the country, including Boston, Philadelphia, New York City, Portland, Seattle and areas of Northern California. Club Pilates locations require approximately 1,500 square feet of retail space, and the total investment to become a Club Pilates franchise owner ranges from $180,595 to $249,295.
