Today I’m joined by Bryan Myers, the President & CEO of [solidcore] — a Pilates-based boutique fitness brand with more than 70 locations across the US.
In this episode, Bryan talks about transitioning into the CEO role earlier this year. Then, we discuss COVID’s impact on the business, raising new capital to support expansion, and [solidcore]’s digital partnership with Equinox+. Bryan also shares his approach to building culture and persisting through the pandemic.
