The Growth of Pilates Collectives

 

By Nicole Rogers

It’s been a little more than a year since Pilates-Pro.com reported on a Pilates collective forming in the San Francisco Bay Area in August 2008, but in that short span, something seems to have taken hold. Other regional collectives have surfaced across the country, and the Bay Area group—which quickly ballooned to the state level—is now taking its program national. These collectives were inspired by a desire to build Pilates community spirit or a local Pilates network, and some, on a more pragmatic level, organized for a shared business advantage. For all, the rewards of sharing information, comparing notes and pooling resources are only beginning. There is, after all, strength in numbers.

We were able to catch up with a few of these groups to bring you this update on grassroots-style Pilates organizing. Read on to find out what the various Pilates collectives are up to now. 

Support for the Business of Pilates
The Bay Area Pilates Collective, now known as the United Pilates Collective , was one of the first to materialize. It started in 2008 when Tracey Sylvester and Nancy Myers, owners of EHS Pilates in San Francisco, thought to hold a mixer for Pilates studios in the Bay Area. “We invited trainers and studio owners within a 25 mile radius to chat about business, and it was immediately obvious that there was a need in the community for this kind of support network,” Sylvester says. She and Myers, as business owners, saw a need for studio owners and independent contractors to share information, such as where to find a lawyer who understood the Pilates business or where to get good liability insurance.

First Bay Area meeting, Aug. 9, 2008The organization quickly grew into a statewide California Pilates collective. As word of the meetings spread, Sylvester said, they began to receive calls from interested studios and trainers all over the country. Now, as the United Pilates Collective, they’re establishing a national organization focused on helping Pilates professionals thrive as business people. “Although similar groups have existed in the past and continue today, we were looking to provide a platform for both business and practice discussion and to create collective bargaining power for a group that had mostly worked alone,” Sylvester said. They’re hard at work on creating an umbrella organization for local and regional collectives that emerge across the U.S.

The UPC is now offering group health insurance plans on a national basis. In California, they’re offering  several types of business insurance . They’ve organized liability, property insurance, and worker’s comp insurance for California members and are even offering a four-tiered liability plan for independent contractors that is specifically tailored to Pilates. They’re now finishing up negotiations for similar group rate structures in New York S...
