Now we’re all rested from our time off and a holiday break, it’s time to look to those new years aspirations. I’m sure getting fit and healthy are high on most people’s lists, having more energy is definitely on mine. Cue the new Clique Studio in Belgrave, whose mission is to help people achieve their fitness goals. Clique Studios is a passion project from Director Alela Pinto who, after having her daughter 17 months ago, decided it was time for a total change. Here’s what she has to say about her new endeavour.
What is it that your business does?
We are a health and fitness studio with a focus on Pilates, Personal Training and Nutrition. Soon to add Yoga, Barre and much more.
What drives you to operate a business in the hills?
After working within the corporate environment in media right in the heart of the CBD it was time for a change. Being Adelaide Hills girls originally both Elle and I were excited to get back to our hills roots and be a part of a community that seems to have a huge focus on health & fitness. On a personal note I was really excited to move to the hills with my family for us to raise our daughter in this amazing and beautiful community. You breathe again when you are in the hills, its incredible.
What is unique about your business, what wouldn’t people already know about you?
We are very goals focused. We are not just Pilates or Personal Training and most certainly not your usual ‘gym’. Our focus is on the individual and tailoring everything to them.
In what ways, if any, do you engage with the hills community?
We are about to start a few charity drives and want to offer ourselves up to any organisation who needs assistance. We look forward to helping out local sporting organisations and schools. We have no intention of staying within our studio walls! We want to be a part of the community as much as we possibly can.
Describe a usual day for you in your business.
We are in around 5am and leave around 9pm! In between there are a lot of classes, a lot of laughs and a lot of coffee!
Where do you see your business in 5 years time?
I see us as a regular part of the community. I see us changing the lives of people who have wanted to lose weight or get fit or just feel healthy again and I see us being very grateful for the opportunity to be a part of such a beautiful place to live and work.
Where can people find more information on your business?
Something else you want us to know? Here is your chance!
First class is always free so come down and check us out for yourself. We also have Mums and Bubs classes for the mums out there who need some time to exercise but don’t have the option of a babysitter.
Most of all we just really enjoy teaching and educating about health & fitness and we love what we do so we hope that rubs off on everyone who comes into our studio.
