Have you always dreamed of being a studio owner, but didn’t have the resources or know-how to pull it off? Now you can: The Club Pilates Studio Giveaway will award a complete franchise package to a lucky winner. “This is an amazing opportunity because a Club Pilates franchise means that you can own and operate your own Pilates studio using the business model that Club Pilates has perfected,” says Allison Beardsley, founder and CEO. “All the details are taken care of for you, including the logo, business practices, website, legal documents, teacher-training manual and so much more.”
The winner will partner with Club Pilates Studio and have all of his or her business expenses—equipment (including 10 Balanced Body Reformers), rent, advertising and staff payroll paid for by Club Pilates for up to two years. After that, the winner will become full owner of their profiting Club Pilates Studio. He or she will also be featured in an article in Pilates Style; get an opportunity to star in a Club Pilates video; win a four-day, all-expenses-paid franchise training trip to San Diego, among other prizes.
To apply, you must have completed a 450-hour comprehensive Pilates certification and have at least one year of teaching experience. The first round of the contest, which runs July 1 through August 31, 2014, is voting based.
Round One winners must develop a business plan, a 50-minute video teaching a group apparatus class and a 10-minute video essay of why they should be selected. They must also complete a Club Pilates Franchise Application and fulfill other requirements before moving on to Round Two.
Round Two runs September 1 to September 31, 2014, with the final winner selected by Club Pilates judges on September 31, 2014.
