The wife of Australian Cricketer, Matthew Wade, is shaking up the island’s fitness industry, one KX Pilates workout at a time.
Julia Wade, Hobart local, mother, and wife of Australian Cricketer, Matthew Wade, is forging her own path in the health and fitness arena, launching and running Tasmania’s first KX Pilates Studio, located at 88 Bathurst Street, Hobart. This will also mark the 50th studio for the KX Pilates franchise.
With a long standing involvement in the wellness industry, a background in Physical Education and a creative flare working in events in Melbourne, Julia is on a mission to support KXers on their journey to happiness and health.
Walking into her first KX Pilates class in Melbourne 7 years ago and trained by founder and CEO, Aaron Smith, Julia knew she had discovered something special, inspired by the unique KX experience: the intimate studio space, personalised approach and community feel.
Now, after landing back in Tasmania 12 months ago to settle down with her family, Julia believes there is a need for the KX way of life to be introduced to the Hobart community.
“I want the community to understand that true health grows from the inside out by focusing on not just physical, but mental and emotional fitness as well,” says Julia. “That’s what KX will provide Hobart locals, the ability to grow, recharge, nourish and give the mind, heart and body the time and love it deserves”, Julia said.
KX Pilates offers a fast paced, high intensity, body-toning workout in just 50 minutes, fusing elements of traditional reformer Pilates with cardio and endurance workout. KX Pilates was launched in 2010 and will celebrate its 50th studio with the opening of the Hobart location.
Aaron Smith, CEO and founder KX Pilates, said, “I am really excited that Julia is not only opening our first Tasmanian studio but also our 50th studio.
“Julia was one of my first clients when I launched the business in 2010 and she has continued to train with us since. She understands the physical and mental rewards that come from the KX experience and I believe she will do an outstanding job running Hobart.”
The new studio will boast an open, fresh environment, with ample space whilst keeping a boutique and intimate feel. The studio offers complimentary towels and chilled water, while seven KX-trained staff will be running the daily classes, and available for ongoing support and advice.
The official opening day for the studio is Saturday 25th August 2018.
