Rapid Cdn Growth Anticipated……

Introduced in California in 2007, Club Pilates is a chain of over 400 fitness studios operating in the United States with plans of having about 600 operating by the end of the year. An additional 300 studios are anticipated in 2019 too.  The fast-growing franchise chain is also looking at the Canadian market with its British Columbia and Alberta launch beginning in October with the first three studios opening in BC’s Lower Mainland region and in Calgary. The studio openings are at 2682 West Broadway in Vancouver’s Kitsilano area and at 2245 -160th St. in Surrey.  And the first Calgary location at 8650 – 112th Ave. NW.  "We are expecting to have over 100 locations open in Canada by the end of 2019," says Club Pilates President Shaun 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."   The Club Pilates studios offer strength-training workouts for all ages. The classes are designed to challenge all levels with state-of-the-art equipment and a knowledgeable team of instructors trained to address the many imbalances and injuries that people face in day-to-day life.  The membership-studios generally require 1500 to 2000 square foot locations in food anchored neighbourhoods centres that have signalized intersection access.  In-line locations are preferred as equipment is mounted on both sides of the rectangular space. At least 20 feet of frontage is required and pilates, barre and yoga is required as an exclusive use.  Areas with 100,000 people within a five kilometre radius are preferred and females with medium to higher income levels are targeted.  Perri Zimmerman and Don Gregor at Aurora Realty Consultants Inc. is handling the site selection in Canada for the chain. Ontario sites are currently being reviewed for early 2019 development.
