Club Pilates Debuts in Charlotte Market, Offers Members Complete Strength-Training Workout


Club Pilates, the nation’s largest premium Pilates franchise, will open in Matthews on Monday, Sept. 11. Located at 2211 Matthews Township Pkwy in Sycamore Commons, the new studio marks the first to the Charlotte metropolitan area, offering members total body workouts that help with posture, balance, flexibility and strength.

The light and bright 2,200-square foot studio welcomes members into an inspiring atmosphere where they can choose from more  than 30 group classes that utilize a variety of equipment, including reformers, EXO chairs, TRX, springboard and Barre.

The Matthews location is owned by local entrepreneur, Julie Harrington. Harrington’s firsthand experience with Pilates helped her overcome Lynch Syndrome and restore, reconnect, and rehabilitate her body after battling six cancer diagnoses and four major surgeries. Harrington decided to invest in Club Pilates to make mind-body principles and high quality equipment-based Pilates affordable to everyone.

“Pilates has truly changed my life; it has made me stronger, more flexible and happy. I am thrilled to be able to share the Pilates Method with others in the Charlotte metropolitan community looking to improve their overall physical and mental states,” said Harrington. “Club Pilates Matthews offers a low impact, 50-minute full-body workout fit for people of all ages and fitness levels at affordable rates.”

Club Pilates is the first Pilates organization to create a proprietary 500-hour Teacher Training Program designed to thoroughly and safely teach group reformer Pilates classes along with TRX, Triggerpoint, and Barre. With more than 230 locations in 35 states and nearly 400 anticipated to be open by the end of 2017, Club Pilates is seeking additional franchise partners.
