Join the growing Absolute Pilates and Barre movement


The boutique fitness industry is the fastest growing segment in fitness. Seventy percent (70%) of the 2,300 new health club facilities that opened in 2015 were boutiques and studios, according to the 2016 U.S. Industry Report from The International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association.

Pilates is one of the most popular programs in boutique fitness. With roots in classical Pilates, it is a proven, safe and effective method. Absolute Pilates’s dynamic programs provide people looking to achieve a fitness goal what they’re looking for: RESULTS.


The Absolute Pilates and Barre programming business model has been tried, tested and proven. Allison Zang, the founder of Absolute Pilates and Barre, launched the program in 5 studio’s in PA to not only seed the brand, but to test the method and markets. The franchise model emerged from real world learnings.

Today, franchisees are supported by a corporate team of experts in Operations, Marketing, Education / Training, and Retail. Owners are guided step-by-step through the process of opening a studio.


The Absolute Pilates and Barre network is Centralized in PA but is looking to span the USA.

Our owners are passionate and savvy business owners who come from diverse backgrounds – from dance to law to finance to marketing. The common ground lies in their shared goal to not only build a great business leveraging a proven model, but to spread the best workout to communities around the world.
