How to find 400 sq. ft.

Consider using movable walls to section off a space in an existing gym or clinic. Perhaps there is a utility area or unused office that you can re-purpose. Maximize existing floor space by getting creative with how you store props and other light equipment. Most importantly, evaluate what equipment or floor space you have that is under-utilized and isn’t offering the same kind of ROI that a Pilates program could.

Space saving alternatives

If a permanent Pilates space is not in the cards, there are still ways to add these profitable services to your business. Consider adding SPX® Max Reformer with Vertical Stands to your facility. The machines easily store standing upright, making it a snap to combine different disciplines with Pilates in the same room. This might be a great opportunity for you to grow your program over time as you build up demand and a qualified Instructor base.
