How long does it take to get started?

If you already are a fully qualified Pilates Instructor and you’re ready to make starting your own Pilates studio your absolute priority, you could begin this weekend. Realistically, most people will take about one to two months to work through all seven steps for starting up their Pilates business.

We know that most people are juggling multiple priorities; family responsibilities, studying as well as freelance instructing. It may take up to six months to plan for and create their ideal Pilates Studio business.  It really depends on your own personal circumstances, and that’s fine too.

What’s included in the program?

A lot!! This online program is ideal if you are the sort of person who is looking for a comprehensive and easy to follow guide that outlines the seven key steps you need to take to get started in your business.

This course is designed for you as you think and plan your own Pilates Studio business. It is also suitable for you if you started your Pilates Studio within the past 12-18 months.

What do the Modules cover?

Your Strategy & Planning – Do these words make you want to run for the hills? We show you how to create a plan for your Pilates business that gets you excited and doesn’t make you go cross-eyed.

Your Brand – Creating your own Pilates studio is your chance to define who you are and what you want your world to be like. Your Brand tells your story, including what you stand for and your values.

Your clients – Who are they? Why do they choose you? What are looking for? When it comes to providing value, you do this through your sessions and your classes and your expertise. What are you really providing or your clients? This is one of the most interesting modules in the program.

Your Marketing – Where will your clients come from? We’ll show you how to discover the best way to connect with the ideal clients for your studio. We also take a good look at who is your competition? and you may be surprised at who we find.

Your Business Finances 101 – You don’t need to be a maths genius to understand the difference between making money and losing money. We’ll show you how to calculate how to make your Pilates business viable.

Your Business – Running a business means understanding about compliance, insurance, regulations etc. We help make this easy for you with step by step easy to follow roadmap for getting your business basics just right.

You – Being in business for yourself is different to teaching Pilates in someone else’s studio. You’ll still have your wonderful clients and you will be running a business as well. What does it take? Who do you need to be? Where will you find the time? Who will support you and help you along the way?

Yes please, I’d like to get started right away!
