Club Pilates Opens First Studio in Bellevue

Club Pilates Bellevue PlazaClub Pilates Franchise Enters Puget Sound Market with Studio in Downtown Bellevue

Club Pilates, the nation’s largest and fastest-growing Pilates franchise, has brought its inclusive and positive studio atmosphere to the Bellevue Plaza Shopping Center at 143 106th Ave. in Bellevue.

The Club Pilates studio in Downtown Bellevue is the first to open in the Seattle area, and hosts a variety of 50-minute classes that range from beginner to intense Cardio Sculpt workouts. The 1,200 square foot studio is equipped with reformers for all classes, exo-chairs and springboards, as well as mats, balls, dumbbells, magic circles, and ballet barres.

“Pilates is good for all and can be done by everybody. From Hollywood stars like Jennifer Aniston and Lady Gaga to top athletes like Lebron James and Peyton Manning, baby boomers to new moms, more and more people are turning to Pilates to meet their health and fitness goals,” said studio owner Nikki Adams. “My intent in opening this studio is to create a space where people of all fitness levels who are serious about their health and well-being can work in small groups or individually with expert and personalized instruction.”

Adams has been practicing Pilates since 2001 and actually won the studio through a Club Pilates franchise giveaway.

Club Pilates Bellevue currently offers 36 classes per week, seven days a week, that start as early as 8 a.m. and as late as 7:30 p.m., so there’s almost always a class for even the busiest of schedules. Class times and reservations are all accessible online, and the studio has discounted monthly memberships and class packages starting as low as $10 per class. The studio also has introductory specials perfect for those new to Pilates.

In addition to group classes, the studio offers private instruction by appointment.

“The whole premise of Club Pilates is to make Pilates accessible to every body type, regardless of age, fitness and activity level, or gender,” Adams said. “It’s meant to be affordable and accessible.”

Adams has committed to opening three studios total in the Seattle area, and is looking to open the second studio in Kent by the end of the year. A third location is planned for the Capitol Hill area in 2016. Company plans call for having as many as five studios in the area over the next few years.

Since its inception in 2007, the Irvine, California-based franchise has rapidly expanded throughout California, as well as many other states including Arizona, Colorado, Michigan, Nevada and Wisconsin. A studio recently opened in Australia as well.
