Alexandra Adams

Once a professional dancer, our guest today transformed her grace on stage into a thriving Pilates empire in Northern Virginia. Alexandra shares her story with us, you’ll be captivated by how her dedication to the art of movement led to the creation of a studio with a waitlist that spans half a decade. It’s not just a tale of a business triumph; it’s a heartening glimpse into the life of a woman who, despite the rigors of entrepreneurship, finds joy in being a wife, sister, and aunt. This episode is a rhythmic blend of professional insights and personal revelations, detailing the meticulous expansion from a humble basement to a bustling hub in McLean, and the strategic collaborations that have shaped a robust community around Excel Pilates Northern Virginia.

Embark on an auditory journey through the ebb and flow of a business that managed to not just survive but flourish in a post-pandemic world, where the shortage of skilled instructors only fueled a more personalized approach to Pilates. Our guest lays bare the industry challenges, including the dilution of the Pilates brand, yet keeps us anchored in the hopeful message that Pilates is a transformative practice for everyone. Whether you’re a high school athlete or someone in their golden years, this episode underscores the inclusivity of Pilates and invites you to explore the potential of this practice to enhance your own life’s rhythm.
