JetSet Pilates Signs New Franchise Deals, Eyes 600 Studios

As Pilates booms, the Miami-based JetSet is expanding to locations including New York City, Texas and Australia

One of the top wellness trends of 2024, Pilates is rapidly taking over the nation. JetSet Pilates, a Miami-based boutique fitness franchise, is capitalizing, expanding well beyond its home state with studios planned across the U.S. and internationally.

Known as a “modern Reformer Pilates experience,” JetSet offers 50-minute workouts guided by curated playlists. Eight studios are open, with twelve in development across Tampa, West Palm Beach, Orlando, Doral, Coral Gables, North Miami, Coconut Grove, Pinecrest and Aventura.

Outside of the Sunshine State, JetSet has signed several development deals throughout Texas (McKinney) North Carolina, New York City (SoHo) and Georgia while the brand eyes 600 franchised studios across the U.S. as it expands. JetSet also has an agreement signed in Australia.

“JetSet is dedicated to cultivating a robust franchise community, grounded in trust and enriched by comprehensive support and training, to ensure our partners excel in delivering Pilates experiences,” said Bert Albertse, CEO of JetSet Pilates. “Each and every JetSet instructor is trained to create personal connections with clients so everyone can reach their personal goals.”

Pilates Power

Pilates has come a long way since it was developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, a German physical trainer who created the movement system while suffering the experience of being a prisoner of war, finding that movement and stretching were key to the human body.

Fast-forward to 2024, and the whole-body exercise modality is renowned for increasing flexibility, building strength and rehabbing injuries. The Pilates boom has also hit TikTok, with #PinkPilatesPrincess and #PilatesPrincess trending, further spreading the practice among young social media users who embrace fitness, wellness and ‘ballet core.’

Tamara Galinsky, JetSet Pilates founder, has long known the benefits of the practice, taking a leap of faith to launch the fitness brand in 2010. She recently spoke with Athletech News in an exclusive interview about JetSet’s remarkable growth, crediting the brand’s immersive class experience and certified instructors.

“Each session at JetSet is not just a pilates class; it’s a meticulously curated journey,” Galinsky told ATN in February. “What began as a single studio has burgeoned into five corporate locations, with 29 franchised locations in development and poised to expand to over 600 franchised studios domestically. This journey has been nothing short of extraordinary.”

Although she had desired to move to a franchise model early on, Galinsky said she was mindful of doing it at the right time and only after assembling the best in the industry.

“Today, I can confidently affirm that our franchising team possesses a level of expertise that few, if any, emerging brands can boast at this stage,” she said.

JetSet Lands in Australia

As for its international endeavors, Kathryn Woodfine, JetSet franchise owner, is bringing the boutique Pilates experience to the Australian market. Enthusiastic about the brand and the workout, she shared that the experience is unmatched.

“As a fitness enthusiast who has tried just about every group fitness class out there, I’ve found JetSet to be unrivaled and am confident it will thrive in Australia and around the world,” Woodfine said.

While Melbourne will be JetSet’s first international location, the Pilates franchise plans to focus on establishing flagship studios in other influential cities.

“Our team is dedicated to empowering franchise partners with operating systems, financial planning tools, technology, training, support and products that are second to none,” said Sarah Buie, head of franchise development. “We are passionate about these partnerships and bringing JetSet to communities worldwide.”
