Problems we wanted to solve:
-Create a space where you can get Pilates AND Strength Training AND Cardio all in one space
-Meet people where they are at and give them a health/fitness plan that they are the focal point... not our program
-Help people achiever their ideal fitness, body, and health.
-Help people move their best
-Help people remain injury free by providing more personalized attention in each class
-Help our clients get the most out of every workout by performing exercises with the right form for their bodies
-Provide better alternatives to Crossfit, Boot Camp and Yoga classes
-Provide group classes where you don't get lost in the pack.
-Provide the same quality workouts and coaching mega celebrities' and professional athletes are getting to shape their ideal bodies at a price they can afford.
-Provide an environment where you are treated like family with your progress and well-being at the top of our priorities.
-Only promote and provide products and services we believe in and get real results for our members.
We started off our training careers at a commercial big box gym. Lindsay a Pilates instructor and Greg a personal trainer and nutrition coach. We found more and more we were bouncing clients back and forth so they could achieve their goals. Some of our clients were spending nearly $1,500 a month in 1 on 1 training fees and that didn’t even include the cost of their gym membership!
It was heartbreaking to have to turn down people who just wanted to have the energy to get through their day, be able to play with their kids without feeling pain, or drop some weight so they could feel confident in (and out) of their cloths, just because they couldn’t afford it.
We saw hundreds of members who couldn’t afford our club services gravitate towards the large group classes that were included with their membership. A great value, but they barely got correction or guidance from the instructor who was in front of 20 other people. Many weren’t reaching their goals… some got hurt and were worse off than when they started.
We dreamt of a time where we could not only support our 3 children, but also take the amazing results our premium clients were getting and bring that to the everyday gym goer.
Opening our own studio in 2016 we finally had our chance. Our first priority is to treat every member like they are a part of our own family. We have personalized and small group programs that more people can afford and we reward people who stay committed to their goals. We keep the class sizes big enough to still have that pop of energy, but small enough that everyone in class is getting the attention they deserve. We offer memberships that allow our clients can get the right mix of Strength Training classes and Pilates classes through the week. We are able to offer personalized nutrition coaching for EVERY client who seeks it.
Today we couldn’t be happier, and either could our ideal family.
We know with our one of a kind blend of Reformer Pilates and idealFIT classes you will be to!
