It’s been almost two months since Sarah McKenzie-McHarg and Mark Bowen took over the operations of the KX Pilates studio in Bay Street, Port Melbourne. And so far, the new business owners are loving everything that comes with the job – the clients, the Bayside lifestyle, the work/life balance and being part of such a vibrant, active and energetic brand.
The journey to becoming Franchise owners began two years ago, when Sarah had just started as a KX Pilates trainer after making the big career transition from working in Public Relations for over 10 years at both L’Oreal and Nike.
When Sarah heard that Aaron Smith, Founder & CEO of KX Pilates was planning to sell the Port Melbourne studio earlier this year, Sarah and Mark quickly jumped at the opportunity and realised this was their chance to fully immerse themselves in the KX way of life.
With Mark’s extensive background in Project Management, Business Development and Finance; coupled with Sarah’s Public Relations and Marketing experience, they are the perfect pair to take on such a business and are excited to continue to grow and expand the business.
Sarah and Mark also have an 11 month old son Hugo who has already proven to be quite the charmer with clients whenever he makes an appearance down at the studio…!
So if you’re new to the Bayside community, or have simply not given KX Pilates a go, come down, meet the family and take advantage of the current Introductory Offer – 5 classes for $50 (to be used within 2 weeks).
And as we all know, there’s no better time to kick start or reboot your fitness coming into Summer!
