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.
