One of the nation’s hottest selling franchises has opened a new Tampa Bay location with two other locations slated for November openings. Florida Retail Partners negotiated three leases for Club Pilates on Florida’s Gulf Coast. The first opened in January at Village Center in Tampa’s Carrollwood suburb leasing 2,000 square feet. A second 2,000 square foot facility will open this month at the Shops of Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel. Bradenton will get a 1,820 square foot Club Pilates in November at Lockwood Commons.
Kalyn Brandewie of Florida Retail Partners, an X Team partner, represented Club Pilates in the three deals. The Carrollwood and Wesley Chapel clubs are operated by franchisees Nathan and Ayesha Philyaw with the Bradenton club operated by franchisees Braden River, Gary Keith and Peter Kilcullen.
Nathan and Ayesha Philyaw, who hail from the pharmacy world, are new small business owners. “We were attracted to Club Pilates’ by its family atmosphere both corporate and local. Both our locations will be active in the community encouraging our members and associates to take part in local activities like fundraisers, member appreciation events, and free workshops. We look forward to continuing the Club Pilates principal ‘Do Pilates, Do Life.’”
Club Pilates is the largest premium network of group Pilates studios in the world, with more than 350 locations slated to open throughout 2017. Ranked No. 4 in Inc. Magazine’s 2017 Inc. 5000 and 500, Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2017 Franchise 500, Club Pilates provides an established executive model and completely scalable business. Born in San Diego in 2005, Club Pilates has expanded across the nation, bringing Pilates to hundreds of thousands of people. In 2016, they served up over 2.2 million workouts to dedicated members. Pure to Joseph Pilates’ original Reformer-based Contrology Method, but modernized with group practice and expanded state-of-the-art equipment, Club Pilates offers high-quality, life-changing training at a surprisingly affordable price.
