A new Mercer Island business — Club Pilates — is planning to open its doors to the community in Spring 2018.

Club Pilates was founded in California in 2007, and is the largest network of premium reformer-based group Pilates studios worldwide, with nearly 300 locations.

The Mercer Island studio will be at 2601 76th Ave. SE, Suite 103, in the Hadley building, and is owned by local husband and wife, Vishrut Shah and Meghna Jani.

“We passionately believe that Pilates is the finest strength-training workout available for anyone, at any age, and for any fitness level,” according to a press release. “It’s a path to a fuller, richer, healthier and more fulfilling life.”

Club Pilates’ state-of- the-art studios are equipped with reformers, EXO-chairs, springboards and TRX apparatus, as well as mats, balls, weights and barres.

“We provide the world’s finest Pilates equipment, instructors and education while incorporating sophisticated digital technology platforms to enhance the member experience and deliver an engaging, impactful workout,” the release states.

The club offers a variety of signature classes designed to fit the needs of many clients. Ranging from beginner Pilates classes to advanced Cardio Sculpt workouts, classes and private training sessions run seven days a week, and are inclusive and accessible to everyone.

The owners have been living in the greater Seattle area for more than 12 years.

“We are so excited to share the benefits of Pilates with the Mercer Island community,” they stated. “It is very gratifying to know that we will be helping residents change their lives by improving their overall health and fitness level. Whether your goal is to recover from an injury or chronic pain, to lose weight, or to improve your core strength — Pilates is for everybody.”
