January 26, 2021

2021 is finally upon us! The BODYBAR Pilates franchise development team is gearing up for some exciting initiatives over the course of the new year, including the expansion of our Reformer Pilates concept in new and existing markets across the country. 

In this first quarter of 2021, we’re looking forward to two studio openings – one in Alpharetta, Georgia, and one in Keller, Texas. The Alpharetta studio, owned by Shannon Renegar, will be the first BODYBAR location in Georgia.

“Pilates is the one exercise that everyone can do – it’s good for people of any age, and it doesn’t have a shelf life,” said Renegar. “BODYBAR doesn’t just provide a workout, it adds a modern twist with multiple choices for every level of experience.”

Founded in 2012, BODYBAR quickly became a health and wellness hit in the Dallas – Fort Worth area. Known for our modern take on Reformer Pilates in an environment that is conducive to building communities filled with members who love, respect, encourage and motivate one another to be strong, healthy and happy human beings, the new Keller studio will be our fifth location in the state! Co-owners and husband-and-wife duo Cory and Nikki White look forward to raising the bar by offering a new workout experience to their neighbors in Keller. 

“After our son was born, Cory and I were looking for an opportunity to open our own business and find financial independence,” said Nikki. “But we wanted to find an opportunity that allowed us to be part of an industry and movement that we were genuinely passionate about. We’re confident that we’ve found that in BODYBAR Pilates.”

Now is an exciting time to become a part of the BODYBAR movement. With demand for an accessible and effective workout at an all-time high, we’re kicking off the new year strong with 12 locations currently in the development pipeline. Current signed agreements include Atlanta; Boston; Farmington, Utah; Plano, Texas; and Kansas City.

As we continue to flex our franchising muscles and find balance in new communities far and wide, we’re seeking qualified franchise prospects eager to pursue their dreams of business ownership with a growing concept. Ideal BODYBAR franchisees have an interest in fitness and a pioneer mindset – this is your chance to get in on the ground floor as we become everyone’s “favorite happy hour,” one studio at a time!
