Hoboken welcomes Xtend with open arms

Andrea Rogers made an impact yet again on the sold-out Xtend crowd at Renaissance Pilates. These devotees are a loyal crowd of women that give their time and devotion to Danielle's haven for enthusiasts. The students learned 'soon to come' new moves and applauded the Xtend founder as she ended the class.

This 'core' group has nothing but amazing things to say about Xtend and it was a beautiful thing to come and see the new bodies that have been sculpted by the program.

Congratulations Renaissance for keeping the pace for Xtend in the NYC area!

A new-age workout for young aspiring dancers

Andrea Rogers gave an all-out stellar Xtend Master Class to several members of Broadway Dance Center tonight from 4:30 to 6pm. The class ranged from teen boys to a young 14 year old aspiring dancer who recently moved to NYC from Florida to pursue a career in dance to many women in their 20's who gave it their best with our new Xtend moves. This was our first opportunity to introduce the class to the open door of dance aficionados that hover the halls and dance their hearts out in this mega capital of stars-and it proved to be a success. Comments made after class include:

“Wow, you need to come here more often to teach,” and

“When are you coming again?”

“How can we get this class at BDC all the time,” and the classic,

“OMG! That was hard. Amazing, but hard.”

If you were in the class or were one of the dancers watching from the window, thank you for your interest and support and keep the good buzz going around BDC- we’d love to come back many times!

Studio Letter-Get Yours

The time has come for all studios to realize their potential. Are you loosing clients that share your time with the gym? If you answer yes to this question, it may be a good idea to implement Xtend at your studio. Xtend can be viewed as "cardio Pilates" or even "boot camp" for Pilates. Either way, you have the chance to work their 'cores' and work their cardio at the same location-YOURS.

Our licensees take advantage of a VIP members only area where they can utilize and download specific marketing and PR tools that can lead to building their business. We're giving you a hint. Mostly all of these products are password protected, but the studio letter is one that isn't. Take a peek and see what you could be doing to get more from your clientelle.

Xtend is the TRUTH...
