Amy’s “happy place” is her quaint pilates studio on Main Street of Fountain Inn. Longevity Pilates is her privately owned studio, that welcomes any client looking to increase strength and flexibility. When COVID-19 closed gyms, Amy faced many unknowns about the future of Longevity Pilates. Thankfully, she was referred to CommunityWorks to apply for the Paycheck Protection Program.
Amy received two rounds of CARES Act Paycheck Protection Program funding, allowing her to keep her gym open. She was also able to creatively pivot, adding a back deck to her studio to safely hold outdoors. She has since been able to reopen the inside of her studio, but still enjoys using the back deck when the weather is nice.
Any client of hers will tell you that Amy is not only passionate about pilates but about the people she serves. Each client starts with a consultation to review any limitations, injuries, etc to ensure their unique fitness goals are met. The special attention she provides to each person and group she encounters would be hard to come by in a larger studio environment.
Thank you so much to CommunityWorks for assisting in my PPP loan for the studio. They were fast and fantastic at answering emails and giving me all of the information I needed to get my business the help it needed during hard COVID times. I would highly recommend CommunityWorks to all of the merchants in Fountain Inn and beyond.” -Amy Freytag
