Amy Mewborn

I'm Amy Mewborn and in 2010, I left my 15 year six figure finance career to open my first barre studio!

That first year, I made over $75,000 of mistakes. 7 months later, I opened my SECOND studio and it was over 3 times more successful.

I helped write franchise manuals and have helped launch over 75 studios across the world - offering barre, yoga, pilates, spin, cycle, bootcamp, cardio dance, TRX, and more!

Today - I help you open your own successful studio - without the costs and restrictions of a barre franchise!


This FREE GUIDE will show you the secrets that the big fitness franchises don't want you to know.  Learn how to open your own fitness business without the fitness franchise.

Real Success Stories...

After receiving a glowing testimonial from another client of Amy’s, my decision was simple - I went all in. It was one of the easiest (and best) decisions I have made.

While the abundant information and resources in the SIB portal are valuable time and money savers, I have found the most value and support in my direct contact with Amy (my “Amy Dates”).

Our entire process of opening our studio was just a few months and Amy’s analogy of “drinking water through a fire hose” was spot on! In addition to her vast knowledge and experience (lease negotiations build out, staffing, marketing, etc.),

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Amy's Studio in a Box program. I highly recommend it for anyone dreaming of starting a studio without the franchise fees, while maintaining true creative freedom.

I had contemplated opening a Barre franchise but I had always heard that you were buying yourself a job when you buy into a barre franchise...which is what I wanted to leave. They also required very high liquidity and required me to quit my job. I thirsted for the freedom to do what I wanted and to have the flexibility without rules and fees, but also wanted (and needed) the support. I would not have gotten my loan or a real estate agent to take me seriously without the documents provided for a business plan and financial projections within the program.

If you have a dream of owning your own studio, Amy’s so worth it!

As I started out my dream of having my very own studio, I really didn’t think I would be able to NOT go with a Barre3 franchise. I just didn’t think I had enough business and marketing knowledge to start up a studio from scratch. As I looked deeper into the world of franchises, I realized how limited I would be, financially and creatively, to start up this dream.

I can’t imagine the stress I would be under if I had decided to go with a franchise--the fees, the monthly royalty payments, the lack of personal expression… the list goes on.
