Pilates Clubs & Pilates Studios for Sale

Pilates is a type of mind-body exercise developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, after whom it was named. Pilates called his method "Contrology". It is practiced worldwide, especially in Western countries such as Australia, Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. As of 2005, there were 11 million people practicing the discipline regularly and 14,000 instructors in the United States. Pilates developed in the aftermath of the late 19th century physical culture of exercising in order to alleviate ill health. There is however only limited evidence to support the use of Pilates to alleviate problems such as lower back pain. Evidence from studies show that while Pilates improves balance, it has not been shown to be an effective treatment for any medical condition other than evidence that regular Pilates sessions can help muscle conditioning in healthy adults, when compared to doing no exercise.

Starting vs Buying a Pilates Business for Sale

Starting or buying and running a Pilates Business or Beauty, Fitness related businesses such as Pilates Studios FOR SALE, Center, Pilates Club for Sale businesses or complimenting and supporting services such as ... etc., can be an exciting, challenging and a rewarding experience especially, to those who are passionate about their work.

If you are interested in starting a small Pilates business or related company, buying an established Pilates business or an existing Pilates franchise for sale near you or buying a Beauty, Fitness related online business, can be one of the best ways to start your own small business. It is fairly easy to start a business in current times but making it profitable and keeping it profitable is not easy and only a small percentage of startups stay in business beyond five years and only a few reach consistent profitability. There are several advantages in buying an existing Pilates or Beauty, Fitness related business with an established customer base when compared to starting a new Pilates company and it may also be easier to finance an existing business than to obtain financing for a new start-up, wherein the banker will want you to show assets and collateral along with a solid business plan, before even considering providing any financial assistance. This is no different than financing a vehicle or real estate with a small down payment rather than paying the full price but and the lender is happy to finance as long as the business is cash flow positive, instead of paying the full amount but only in case of buying a business, the amount can be so large that most people do not have the money to make an upfront purchase and even if they do, most small and large businesses are financed via debt or equity financing.

You may consider buying an established Pilates Studios FOR SALE, Center, Pilates Club for Sale ... etc., Instead of just thinking about the main product or the business, also think about other opportunities that may exist with regards to services centered around a Pilates business or if it is possible to rebrand or introduce complimenting or other related services such as ecommerce, distribution, and customer acquisition possibilities, etc., While there are many considerations, when it comes to buying a business and the purpose of this page is not meant to outline all the details on how to buy a Pilates business, the first and foremost factor is that, one would want to find a profitable business to buy and it is great if it is with business financing arrangement in place with pre-approval for a loan from a SBA qualified lender or a third-praty lender and better if it is a owner financed company but in some cases established businesses and aged shell companies are bought even if they are not profitable. In many cases the company or product can be re-branded later or additional services can be added to existing business to acquire and expand market share but also to finance and even to go public, such as a recent example of an electric vehicle start-up that bank rolled their startup by acquiring a shell company and went public. Also, keep in mind that while starting a new Pilates company is not too hard, running a business is not easy and making it consistently profitable and growing it is another thing because a vast number of small business that are started will usually fail within first few years and a small number of them are consistently profitable. Hence, buying an existing Pilates Clubs & Pilates Studios or franchise with cash flow can be a better option, depending upon the type of business and its finances.

Buying a Small Pilates Business from a Business Owner vs Broker

Many users seem to be searching online for Pilates Studios FOR SALE, Center, Pilates Club for Sale & and ... related business for sale by owner and may be it is because buyers are led to believe that they can negotiate better with the owner or get a better deal.

There are also other advantages of dealing with a qualified and experienced broker but in the end whether it is an FSBO business or listed by a broker, everything depends on the real value of the business, current market conditions.

Whether you are buying a Pilates business from an independent small business owner or form a broker, the most important factor or the first step is to evaluate the business to make sure the business is priced right or at a discount.
