Fitness with PJ/The Studio support women who are ready to take control of their health, willing to try and to put in the work, and who value their health and time. When women are strong physically they become stronger mentally, spiritually and emotionally. Our purpose is to give women the tools (and the motivation) to accomplish that. The Studio brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in the health and fitness field, as well as years coaching women. They bring compassion, empathy and a little tough love when needed to help support their clients meet their fitness goals.
Question: How are you supporting other local businesses?
Answer: We use local suppliers to purchase our inventory of fitness equipment. We work with several vendors and have an informal policy to buy from local companies – 100% of them are based in B.C. All our service providers are either B.C.-based or Canadian companies. This includes all our accounting & bookkeeping, coaching & leadership, consulting and professional services providers. Also 90% of our other products like cleaning and office supplies, are purchased from B.C.-based companies.
