Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Amy Hirsch, Founder of Precision Pilates and Wellness, located in Nesconset, NY, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Precision Pilates is a boutique Classical Pilates studio. We service men and women who want to be pain-free and feel good in their bodies without debilitating workouts.
Tell us about yourself
Precision Pilates started out of a need to be home more and be present; I am an exercise physiologist and have always moved in some way, shape, or form. Swim, dance, lacrosse, and runnings were my go-to. I fell in love with Pilates and the method because it changes bodies and changes lives. Each day I get to help my clients move better, make them feel stronger and able to accomplish tasks that they could not do in years.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
My biggest accomplishment is seeing my vision come to life. It's surreal at times. Going from a home studio in my basement to Zoom, then my back porch, and now in a high-end boutique 2000 sq foot studio. In a year, I have doubled my membership. Just this month, I hit 724 visits for the month.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
I find the hardest part is taking off the friend hat and switching to the business.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Set boundaries.
- Charge what you are worth.
- Dream big.
