About Tori Froemke:

Tori is the owner/operator of Bayside Pilates. A group reformer-based Pilates studio in Corpus Christi, TX known for its skilled instructors, empowering community and challenging classes that leave you feeling like a badass! Tori’s journey began when she became a Pilates instructor in 2017. Desiring a massive career change – Tori obtained her Comprehensive Pilates Certification, threw herself into teaching and worked hard to develop her skills. Shortly after beginning her new career as a Pilates instructor, the original founder of Bayside Pilates put the studio up for sale. At the time Bayside Pilates was the only group reformer studio of its kind in the area and it was Tori’s home. Knowing there was no one in the area who could buy the studio and keep the same heart of the business, Tori decided even as a newer instructor she wanted to take on the challenge of owning and running her own studio. So, in 2019 Tori became the proud new owner of Bayside Pilates. Navigating taking on an existing business, followed by a pandemic, new competition in the local market and the thousand other things that come with running a business, Tori has taken Bayside Pilates from 5 reformers to 12, a larger staff than ever and 150 active members.

The most important single concept to make $100k in Pilates

By Make more money

If you want to make $100k next year teaching Pilates, there’s one critical concept to understand.

This will take about 5 minutes to read.

The concept in this blog might be the opposite of what you’ve been taught.

It might be a completely different way of thinking.

But when you understand and start applying this concept, we can promise you’ll start making more money.

That’s how important it is (and why Raph spent so much time writing this blog for you).

Write this down.

Print this and read it over and over.

Tattoo it on your arm so you eat, sleep and breathe this concept…

Pilates is not your product. You’re not selling Pilates. You’re selling a result

Raph is holding a live workshop in the next two weeks showing you exactly how to apply this concept to make $100k a year teaching Pilates. Secure your spot here.

——————————————————————–

Let me show you by giving you an example of how it applies in your own life.

What do you do when your sink is blocked?

You’ll probably call a plumber.

You are a client of your plumber.

I’m going out on a limb here to say on most days, you don’t sit around thinking about the benefits of plumbing.

Let’s face it. You have zero interest in plumbing.

But when your sink is blocked, you wonder how to unblock your sink.

Your future clients are like you

They don’t care about plumbing or, in this case, Pilates.

They care about alleviating their back pain.

They care about living longer and feeling less stressed.

They care about liking what they see in the mirror more.

Your future clients don’t sit around thinking about Pilates. Just like you’re not sitting around thinking of plumbing.

Your future client is at home right now thinking about how sore her back is…

She’s thinking that she needs to do something about it.

It’s becoming a problem because her back pain is impacting her ability to concentrate at work.

It’s making her short-tempered with her kids.

Here’s what introduces your future client to Pilates

Your future client is sitting at home.

She feels terrible because she missed an important meeting with her boss.

She yelled at her child when she got home.

Your future client sits on the sofa with a glass of wine.

Her back is killing her.

She’s mentally drained and emotionally numb.

She scrolls through social media to distract herself from her life for a few minutes.

And comes across an ad saying “Get rid of your back pain in 6 weeks”.

Do you think she’ll feel a spark of interest, excitement, or even hope?

Without a shadow of doubt it will.

You’ve shown her the life preserver that could save her from drowning.

You’ve shown Pilates will give her the result she wants (less pain).

This person will be an amazing client.

She’ll pay you whatever you ask. She’ll show up to all her sessions because she’s motivated – she has a big, painful problem, and she’s desperate to solve it.

(Like you would pay your plumber whatever he asked AND take the day off work if it meant unblocking the ONLY toilet in your home…)

The conventional, wrong “Pilates IS your product” scenario

What if, as she was scrolling through social media, she saw an ad selling Pilates like:

  • “6-week Pilates course starts Monday”
  • “The 12 benefits of Pilates”
  • “Intro offer – 5 Pilates sessions for $50”

Do you think that would attract her attention?

No. It wouldn’t.

She’s too busy wallowing in pain and exhaustion to even contemplate getting fit – it’s not on her radar.

Her problem is back pain.

Not a lack of Pilates.

She won’t come to you for Pilates. She’ll come to you to ease her back pain.

Alleviating back pain is the result. Pilates is the delivery mechanism.

Remember this one concept.

Pilates is not your product. Your product is the solution to your client’s problem. That’s what the client is paying for. A result. Less back pain

If you take anything away from this, I want you to remember this concept.

Your. Future. Clients. Don’t. Care. About. Pilates.

Don’t sell Pilates. Sell the solution to your client(s) problem.

Selling results instead of sessions solves every stage of the client journey. When you understand that Pilates is not your product, it’s simple to make $100k a year teaching Pilates.

This is how you get more clients who pay higher fees & are easier to work with.

It’s the cornerstone of building a client-centered business so you can make 100k a year or more teaching Pilates.

If you’d like to know exactly how you can build a client-centered business and start making $100k a year next, I’d urge you to secure your spot to the workshop on Feb 28 / March 1st depending on your timezone.

>>> I want to make 100k a year teaching Pilates

Replays will be available if you can’t attend live.

But if you’re serious about getting this result, I’d encourage you to join live so you can have answers to any questions you might have.

2) Download our free report: “3 Myths about Posture in Pilates“. Ditch the myths and get the facts on posture. For Pilates instructors and movement enthusiasts alike.

How to start a solo Pilates business and make great money, with Jean Campbell and Raphael Bender

By Make more money

Being a solo-preneur is a dream for many Pilates instructors. The independence of being a small business owner is appealing, but without calculating the cost correctly, you might be setting yourself up for more hours with less pay than if you remained an employed Pilates instructor. Today we’re joined by Jeanne Campbell–a yoga teacher who has been perfecting her low-cost, minimal hours solo business model for the past two decades. With so much crossover between the yoga and Pilates industries, her advice is highly applicable to anyone looking to start their own solo Pilates business without losing money and working too many hours. 

What You Will Learn: 

  • A blueprint for a low cost solo business model with almost no overhead
  • Common myths about the cost of running your own business
  • Tips for optimizing your website specifically as a movement professional
  • How to get more clients without pressuring them to come to your classes
  • How to retain clients with commitment agreements and requiring self-practice

The Real Cost of Running a Solo Pilates Business

Starting a small business can be stressful when you put all the figures together, only to realize that you just don’t have enough money. But Jeanne’s blueprint minimizes startup and long-term overhead costs in a way that allows solo-preneurs to work minimum hours and love what they do. She and Raph go through the calculations of starting a solo practice in a realistic way. That means, planning for the worst case scenario. Cancellations, sick kids, and parking issues… these situations happen all the time, so you’ve got to charge an appropriate fee for your classes. If you feel funny charging more, it may be because you lack confidence in your skills. Jeanne and Raph touch on imposter syndrome and confidence issues, and why you’ve got to change your thinking if you want to decrease overhead and increase profit margin.

Commitment for Retention

Jean has a somewhat rigid structure of commitment which she requires clients to adhere to. Sticking to casual drop-in classes and allowing roll-overs seems like the nice thing to do, but it’s also encouraging clients to avoid commitment. Ultimately, it means less bodies in your studio. Jean also shares how she gets clients to commit to coming to classes and doing at-home practice. Ultimately, it lands more money in your pocket, more clients in your studio, and real results for clients. You’ll learn what a commitment agreement looks like, and how to enforce it. It’s tough love, but everyone wins when clients see results and you improve your confidence in your skills… and make more money, too!

Common Mistakes that Stop You From Making Money

Jean goes through the math of owning your own studio with her yoga teacher trainees, and shares what they usually think of as good ways to make money. They often think of teaching at a gym, renting space, and covering other teachers’ classes. But when she reveals the overhead of these endeavors, students are shocked. The most common ways we think to make money as solo-preneurs usually are not the best ways. Jeanne and Raph break down the math of running a brick and mortar studio, website costs, scheduling software, equipment, and more. They offer alternative ways to run a Pilates studio–such as online practice– that save you time, money, and stress.

The New Future of Pilates with Lesley Logan

By Make more money

 

In this conversation I talk with Lesley Logan of Profitable Pilates and Online Pilates Classes. We share our thoughts on the current situation with COVID-19 lockdown and the closure of Pilates studios around the world.

Both Lesley and I see this as an amazing opportunity to “Reset to Factory Settings”, to let go of things you have been holding on to out of fear or inertia. It is also an incredible time of change and opportunity in the Pilates industry. Things are not going to return to the way they were before – here’s how we think you can take advantage of this seismic shift and turn this into an amazing opportunity for yourself, your teaching, your clients and your business. And we want to encourage you to charge what you’re worth!
