Thanks for everyone who helped make Saturday so special for us! Our first ever open house was a huge success, and we couldn't have done it without each and every member of our amazing team! From the unreal catered food, to the clients who brought their friends to experience our studio, we love you all and couldn't be more grateful!
Our morning started with preparing the studio to look fabulous. We decorated everything with balloons and goofy cut outs of Sergey, the one used for Pin the Sergey on the Reformer, and finished all little final touches before the crowd arrived. We decided to hang sign up sheets for each of our mini classes to make it a first come first serve opportunity. Luckily we had 14 people interested in our 2 mini classes, which was the perfect number!
After giving all of the awesome new clients a taste of Sergey's Pilates, we jumped straight into our first game! Pin the Sergey on the Reformer! This was a blast, and left everyone giggling. The object was to pin the little Sergey cut out on the blown up poster of a reformer! We would spin each person 4 times and give them an exact location to pin Sergey, with their eyes closed of course! The winner of Pin the Sergey won a Sergey's Pilates tote bag, T Shirt, and sticker!
We then moved on to Pilates Trivia! Sergey and Somer asked everyone 10 multiple choice Pilates questions.
