Club Pilates, the nation’s largest Reformer-based Premium Pilates franchise, is celebrating the grand opening of Club Pilates Tysons Corner, marking the franchise’s tenth studio opening in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area in just over a year.
Located at 1521 Boyd Pointe Way, Ste. B Vienna, VA 22182, the 2,150 square foot studio will host its grand opening event on Saturday, January 19th and Sunday, January 20th offering special pricing that weekend: 20% off memberships for the first month in addition to waiving enrollment fees, plus 20% off retail, as well as studio giveaways.
True to Joseph Pilates’ original Reformer-based Method, Club Pilates enhances the 50-minute group practice by incorporating 11 different pieces of equipment in addition to the traditional Reformer, including the EXO Chair, Bosu Ball, Triggerpoint, TRX, Barre and more. With 8 different signature class formats to choose from and 4 levels of practice, programs are catered to exercisers’ fitness levels and focus areas (i.e.: cardio vs. restorative vs. balance, etc.).
The Tyson’s Corner location is owned and operated by D.C.-native and entrepreneur Michael Grams who was the first to introduce Club Pilates to the Washington metropolitan area in Dec. 2017 when his first studio – and the first in the area – opened its doors in Pentagon City. The Pilates-fusion workout has since taken over the DMV – and the nation. With Grams’ second studio opening marking the 10th location for the DMV, Grams expects there to be at least 18 total studio locations in the D.C. surrounding areas in the future.
Club Pilates was named Inc. Magazine’s Fastest Growing Fitness Franchise in the Inc. 5000 and 500 two years running and Entrepreneur Magazine’s 2018 Franchise 500 for the second year running. Locations in the area include: Pentagon City, Tysons Corner, Burke, Fair Lakes, Potomac Falls, Ashburn, Bethesda, North Bethesda, Germantown and Olney. With a Club Pilates Passport Membership, members can attend classes at all the local studios, and virtually all Club Pilates nationally, providing an unbeatable value for members.
“After seeing great success with Club Pilates Pentagon City, I’m thrilled to be opening my second location just down the street from the bustling Tysons Corner Center,” says Grams.
“This workout is like nothing you’ve tried and its rapid expansion comes as no surprise. As health and overall wellness become more important, people are looking for a workout that provides more than just weight loss. Club Pilates merges a variety of exercises that complement the traditional Pilates practice, making it an effective workout for body and mind--and resulting in a significant difference in your posture, balance, flexibility and strength.”
Hybrid workout classes are one of the biggest fitness trends emerging in recent years. With fun, dynamic and time effective workouts, Club Pilates offers something for everyone from cardio, to strength training, recovery-focused classes and more.
