KX Pilates, is located on Foveaux St, Sydney Social 101 had a chat with co-owner Aaron Smith about how it came to be such a success (he and his partner, Andrea Fiorenza, moved to Sydney in early 2014 and are co-owners of the Surry Hills studio).
KX Pilates is favoured by local celebs including; Natalie Bassingthwaite, Maddy King, Carrie Bickmore, Samantha Lane and Nadia Bartel.  Smith and Fiorenza are hoping to find similar success here in Sydney with the KX group, which also offers Barre, Yoga and international retreats to Bali and Vanuatu.

Tell me about KX

KX is all about high performance boutique fitness. Our Dynamic Reformer Pilates brand started 5 years ago and since then we have broadened our brands to include Barre, Assisted Yoga along with taking guests on international retreats to Bali and Iririki Island in Vanuatu.

How did you get involved

I’ve been involved in the fitness industry for over 10 years and I found the style of Dynamic Pilates whilst living in the UK. I instantly fell in love with it, although I thought with a strong brand I could create a better offering. 6 months after moving back to Australia KX was born!

Where is your fave place to eat out in Sydney?

I’d have to say Miss G’s in Potts Point is a favorite.

Describe a typical day 

My typical day starts with waking up to a long black and hitting the gym. Emails for a few hours and then meetings most afternoons. Add travel at least one week a month between Melbourne and Sydney too.

What advice would you give to people who want to begin a new exercise regime?

Start slow and work your way up, and understand it’s consistency that is the key to getting results. Motivation can only get you so far so plan ahead, set your goals and make sure that you are doing something every day to be one step closer to achieving them.
