Are you flexible and open to change - and want to be part of a rapidly growing company that is on target to be doing huge and exicting things? 

If so.... then we might be JUST the position you're looking for... 

We're a Physical therapy and Pilates studio in Portmsouth, NH that is growing FAST. We're expanding our Pilates and fitness side of things and need your help to do it!

Our next Pilates instructor is someone who works hard, is a team player, can't get enough of learning, and loves to be held accountable for high performance standards. You'll be given key objectives and outcomes that - if achieved consistently - will reward you with substantial benefits and privileges.
