    How Strong Pilates was built - with Michael Ramsey

    This week on a special edition of The Big Deal, Tredders is joined by co-founder of Strong Pilates, Michael Ramsey.

    Strong Pilates is a franchise company which has set its sights on a $35 million turnover a year.

    After launching pre-pandemic in 2019, Strong Pilates has reached 58 studios across Australia and New Zealand, with expansion heading to the States and more.

    Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Ramsey started the business after breaking his ankle and turned to reformer pilates.

    Alongside his business partner Mark Armstrong, they used the profits from their former ventures to establish the business.
