SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — March 21, 2017 — Netpulse, the #1 provider of mobile apps for health clubs, announced today that Club Pilates is its newest customer. The new Club Pilates mobile app makes class schedules, booking, purchasing classes and tracking workouts seamless for members.

Founded in 2007 and franchising since 2012, Club Pilates is the nation’s largest and fastest growing Pilates franchise. The concept has taken off quickly: there are over 400 locations sold in 33 states and 2 countries. Its growth has been led by CEO Anthony Geisler, former LA Boxing / UFC Gym owner. The studios have been so successful in part due to their required minimum 500 hours vs. the common 40 hours of instruction for trainers. The result is a wildly popular fitness franchise that employs over 500 instructors who will deliver over 7 million workouts to tens of thousands of members in 2017.
