ipilates win small business award
BBC Dragon Theo Paphitis showed his support for iPilates unique Pilates downloads on Twitter by re-tweeting a message sent to him by this small Wilmslow business.
Dragon Chooses Wilmslow Studio as Business Winners
iPilates was started by Tracey Corcoran and Julia Jackson, following Tracey’s diagnosis with Breast Cancer in 2007. Chemotherapy meant that Tracey had to give up her role as a teachers at The Physio & Pilates Centre, Wilmslow and was also unable to attend classes at the studio.
Realising that getting to exercise was an important part of her recovery, Tracey asked Julia to record some workouts for her, and iPilates was born.
Theo’s Small Business Sunday #sbs helps small businesses promote their products and services to a wider audience. The star of Dragon’s Den receives thousands of tweets on a Sunday evening and chooses just six of his favourites to share with over 225,000 of his followers on twitter.
Following Paphitis’ re-tweet, Julia and Tracey has been invited to the #sbs winners party in Birmingham at the end of March.
