Shine Studio is a boutique fitness studio that offers a wide variety of workout formats, from Cardio Dance to Barre to Pilates. Owners Hillary Lewis and Yaya Margarita opened the business in 2016 and have both been involved in dance and fitness most of their lives.
“Our #1 motivation is to change the way people look at fitness.”
What is your company doing that is unique?
“Our classes are incredibly unique, and we created most of our formats from the ground up! The mixture of cardio and strength training in our classes are an optimal combination for getting the most out of your workouts and getting in the best shape of your life.”
What would you like potential clients to know about Shine Studio?
“We created a positive, nonjudgmental, inviting space so that wherever you are in your fitness journey, you should feel comfortable starting with us. Whether you’re new to working out, bored with the same old gym routine or just had a baby (like Yaya!), we want each and every person to feel welcome joining our #ShineSociety!
We work hard to create a sense of community and support, and it’s amazing seeing our clients become friends, hold each other accountable for showing up and just enjoy taking class together! From creating our own meal plan to partnering with local brands for events, we are consistently coming up with new ways to engage our clients and make fitness more fun and accessible.”
How do you support your clients?
“Our #1 motivation is to change the way people look at fitness. Healthy living doesn’t have to be a chore or something you force yourself to do. Yes, our classes are going to challenge you, but you are also going to laugh, smile and feel amazing afterward! We try and keep things lighthearted, because working out doesn’t always have to be taken to seriously!”
What has been the most rewarding moment in your business so far?
“In the short time we’ve been open, we have had several people tell us that Shine’s classes have changed their lives! Some had never worked out before or they could never stick to a routine until they discovered Shine. We could not be more humbled, and that’s what pushes us every day to continue on this journey to make Shine a successful brand and business.”
