#217: Julie Cartwright, President of Pvolve

Presented by

Today, I’m joined by Julie Cartwright, president of Pvolve, an innovative low-impact fitness program with in-studio and at-home offerings.

Founded in 2017 by Rachel Katzman, Pvolve leverages resistance-based functional movement training to help exercisers restore body alignment and health. Ditching the no pain, no gain mantra, the company is proving fitness doesn’t have to hurt to be effective.

In this episode, we talk about the brand’s signature equipment and workouts. Plus, we discuss key partnerships, retail opportunities, and franchise expansion plans.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How actress Jennifer Aniston got involved with the company
  • Julie’s advice for standing out in the competitive boutique franchise market
  • Pvolve’s omnichannel strategy spanning digital content, equipment, and studios
