Join Our Power Circle for Business Owners and Trainers

Professional Training Team

February 8, 2018

and you will soar through the coming year.

Do You Know the Feeling of “Lonely at the Top?”

In your quest to improve your business bottom line, do you wish you had a group of peers or others that have been ahead of you on the path to tell you the pitfalls and successes so you can get there faster? In your quest to be the most effective and informed trainer, do you wish you had a forum to create more effective programing, hone your personal practice, and take you to the next level of training? If you know these feelings well, we have a program to support you and rocket you through the coming year.

Whether you are a studio or club business owner, a Pilates program director, or a Pilates trainer, we invite you to join a Sweatshop Power Circle – which brings non-competing business owners, Pilates/Fitness/Wellness program directors and trainers together to learn from each other and from our experienced leaders: Sweatshop founder and owner, Gayle Winegar, and our newest Director, Vicky Vander Woude. If you want to improve your performance in 2018, join one of our Power Circles – Business or Pro Trainer – and develop a network of your peers to support your growth, solve challenges, and share successes.


…is based on the well-known model in the executive world of professional round tables, where members meet routinely with an agenda to consider new areas of growth, problem solve, review and improve bottom lines, benefit from others’ successes and – more importantly – mistakes! Over the past decade, SweatShop Fitness owner, Gayle Winegar, has led several round tables – both with Minnesota business owners and her peers nationally. When members were asked what they valued most, Gayle’s breadth and depth of experience and willingness to share was most valuable to many members…not to mention the accelerated learning on topics from marketing, social media, Facebook ads, data base management, and staffing issues from compensation and benefits to new hire searches and performance reviews. Everything from expense management to successful program design and development can be on the agenda.

Our new PRO DIRECTOR, VICKY VANDER WOUDE, bring more business, executive, management and marketing experience to the group than we have ever had access to before. Drawing on her background as a Vice President of International Business Development for a local Minnesota company, Vicky specializes in process improvement, creating efficiencies, building a strong team, and scaling your business. Plus, she’s a trainer with STOTT PILATES Full Certification.

We have split the POWER CIRCLE into two areas of focus: BUSINESS and PROGRAMMING management.

Agendas will be custom tailored to the needs and priorities of each group. Both circles will launch April 2018 and run through March 2019. NOW is the time to join because of the extraordinary opportunity for the EXTRA-special invitation to a new workshop with Moira on Sunday, March 4th!
