Have you seen your hours cut in 2020?

Have you been feeling burned out treating so many clients at once?

Are you tired of watching from the sidelines as others succeed with
their fitness business?


We know that times are tough for Therapists in 2020. If you are looking like every other PT out there with your skill set, not unique at all, then what is your plan? Are you tired of treating patients and them leaving after PT but not being strong enough to your likings?

Tired of losing clients to the personal trainers that do not have your education? I have seen all of this in previous PT jobs before opening my own place and focusing on Pilates instead of PT.


Do you want to have 15 year clients because of your Pilates program?

Do you want to serve clients virtually with exercise?

Do you want half your income to come from a wellness program?

Do you want to keep clients in a fitness program so that when they are
injured or need PT that you are already in their circle?

When we opened our studio in Austin, we were sick and tired of dealing with HMO’s, Workers Comp, Physician Owned Clinics. We took 2 private insurance plans for a decade and then went completely out of network in 2016. We built it around combining Physical Therapy and Pilates.

It worked and we have successfully built a studio with half our income from PT and half from our fitness side of Pilates/Gyrotonic private sessions and group classes. We have a full studio of equipment with 5-7 Pilates trainers working with us at a time…

I love to tell the story of when I was training for a half marathon in 2002. My training was an integral part of Cheryl and I finding Pilates.

I had just heard the word Pilates from a potential PT job but didn’t know anything about it. While training for the marathon a few weeks later I saw a Pilates Studio and then saw an ad in the paper that they were hiring. I started working there as a PT and we started our Pilates Teacher Training a few weeks later.

After doing Pilates from February to May I had started to notice some changes in my posture and breathing. I did a practice half on May 5th. Then on June 23rd I did the half in Hawaii that I had been training for… What was interesting was that I shaved over 15 minutes off my time in that short period of time.

This improvement was from Pilates as mu awareness had really improved in those few short weeks. The rest is history as it became my go to with every patient and they loved it… Kept coming back for more.

So Join NOW and get access to a video library to consume at your own pace.
