READY AIM EMPIRE : Podcast Episode 134: Meet the Mother-Daughter Team That Are Transforming Boutique Fitness in NYC {And Taking The Next Big Leap to Franchise Their Method}

Rachel and Lauren Piskin got introduced to my life in a roundabout way.

You see, my first Pilates certification was with The PhysicalMind Institute.

Lauren, after decades of establishing herself as a go-to fitness professional with organizations such as CBS, opened the PhysicalMind’s NYC certifying studio, and quickly became an icon that I’ve kept on my radar for years.

Fast forward just a few years, and her daughter, Rachel, joined her to develop, The Reinvention Method and Chaise Fitness. 

What do I love about this duo?

Well, they’re the first mother-daughter duo I’ve had the chance to spend time with on this journey {and my momma who’s been alongside me was doing a happy dance that we weren’t the only one}.

They each bring unique strengths to the table, but both lead with a visionary mindset as to what boutique fitness should be….

And, what’s that you ask?

Customer driven…

Extraordinary experiences…

Staff that embody the family this business literally is…

And, a growth plan to take the same stellar service throughout the country as they franchise their model.

What sets them apart from the masses is their drive to build a methodology so distinct that there are no competitors, so well taught that every customer has an amazing experience, and with a team so strong that you can grow a multi-location business with the operational systems to make it, well, almost easy.

Join me on this episode as we share:

  • You can always start over!
  • Why Lauren got certified in Pilates and how she applied it to her niche
  • Rachel’s journey in transitioning from a career in dancing to running a business with her mother
  • The one thing that sets them apart from other businesses
  • How they’ve used internal referrals as the number one source of new business
  • Ways they maintain relationships with their community
  • Why they hold their certifications like an audition!
  • The importance of developing your staff

With grit + gratitude,

Lisé

Marketing Planning for January, February, March with Tara Zirker

In the boutique fitness space, we’ve spent the past year hyper-focused on recovering from the pandemic and bringing our businesses back up to pre-Covid levels.  But in the process, many of us have ignored the BIG marketing pivot that iOS 14 brought about with its shift in privacy laws.  The digital marketing landscape has changed […]
