Some FAQ About Conni Ponturo

When did you start your business?

I started teaching in 2001 and took over the studio in 2007.

What obstacles or challenges have you faced or overcome?

I bought the studio in July 2007, and by 2008 we were in a full-blown recession. The first thing people cut out is exercise. I limped through the next couple of years innovating as much as I could. This year I’ve been around for 15 years. Amazing. I was closed for 2 years and that’s where I innovated again and opened up my membership site absolutely grounded.

What are you most proud of?

Staying in the game, ten studios around me closed. How well my clients thought the pandemic.
