Guest Intro

Today’s guest, Aaron Smith, is a trailblazing entrepreneur in the fitness industry whose journey from a passionate personal trainer to the founder of Australia’s largest Pilates franchise, KX Pilates, is nothing short of inspiring.

With a background in science, specialising in physiology and pharmacology, he ventured from Australia to the USA and immersed himself in various fitness cultures. His discovery of dynamic pilates in London sparked the creation of a unique fitness concept that blends traditional reformer Pilates with cardio and endurance elements, giving birth to KX Pilates.

Overcoming initial financial challenges and a steep learning curve in marketing, he has successfully grown his brainchild, KX Pilates, into over 100 studios globally, profoundly impacting lives with the philosophy of continuous improvement.

More than just a fitness mogul, he is a mentor and visionary who believes in the power of community and innovation, having transformed the landscape of boutique fitness.
