Pilates, Yoga, Barre and stretching studios
Pilates is booming worldwide, but that hasn’t always been the case. Only in recent years has the mind-body movement become widely understood and sought-after by diverse exercisers. If we are talking about European fitness market – the largest and brightest is the German fitness market, where not only active population but also people over 70 join Pilates classes. Despite Joseph Pilates being a German native, Pilates hasn’t always been a well-known exercise method in the country, its popularity in the country started to rise since 2005 and majorly increased through the last 7 years.
Pilates and Yoga studio can be launched in very different ways: as part of a big fitness club, as a separate studio, as part of the physiotherapy clinic, and take up from a small 16sq.m area up to bigger multi facility location that include various group class setting and private workout premises. It is expected that in the future we’ll see more health-oriented and holistic wellness fitness offerings, so there is a major potential now in the Baltics to set up such projects.
