TAMPA, Fla.  Club Pilates, the nation's largest premium Pilates franchise, will open in Tampa on Monday, June 5. Located at 940 South Howard Avenue, the new studio will offer members total body workouts that help with posture, balance, flexibility and strength. To celebrate the new location, May 30 through June 4, Club Pilates will offer limited complimentary classes and 20 percent off memberships for the first three months.


The light and bright, 2,000 square foot studio welcomes members into an inspiring atmosphere where they can choose from dozens of private one-on-one and semi-private group classes that utilize a variety of equipment, including reformers, EXO chairs, TRX, springboard and Barre.


The Tampa location is owned by husband-and-wife team Jim and Catherine Griffin, and is operated by general manager, Katie Amrein.  Amrein comes to Club Pilates with more than 10 years' experience teaching Pilates, and was interested in being part of the brand's premium service and impressive growth trajectory. The Griffin's plan to bring two additional locations to the greater Tampa area, slated to open later this year.


"I became passionate about Pilates through my own fitness journey; I have experienced firsthand how basic mind and body principles can directly manifest through all aspects of life. I am excited to share the Pilates Method with others looking to improve their overall physical and mental states," said Amrein. "The demographics of the Tampa area make it a natural fit for a Club Pilates studio, and we are currently seeking comprehensively-trained Pilates instructors and motivated sales representatives to join our Club Pilates team."


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. Club Pilates has more than 140 locations in 35 states.
