We had the good fortune of connecting with Tiffany Bowers and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tiffany, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I’ve dedicated close to 25 years in the fitness+wellness industry … teaching and managing group fitness classes, creating and writing fitness programs and motivating others in my community. And after being immersed in the industry for this long and watching trends and people come and go, I now strongly believe that you should exercise in a different way every single day. Methods and workout styles should address flexibility, recovery, cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, creativity, brain+cognitive health and simply … your overall happiness. Most successful entrepreneurs know that you need to fill a void, solve a problem or provide a valuable service as a strong part of your business model. The boutique fitness studio offerings in Palm Beach County all provide just one style or modality of group fitness …whether it’s just yoga, just Pilates, just kickboxing or just barre. There’s not one studio offering it all. So opening a variety-based group fitness studio does fill this void and provides value in our community. This was my thought process behind starting Tribe Studio.

What should our readers know about your business?
Tribe Studio is a boutique studio space offering a wide variety of cutting-edge group fitness classes for women and men taught by passionate and professional instructors. I am most proud of our uniqueness. Each class at Tribe has its own personality. Tribe’s class variety is truly our strength. No ‘branded’ programs here – just freestyle, creative Instructors teaching from the heart. All of us are certified, all trained to understand music, tempo, speed, safety, form, alignment and most of all – results. You will see many different classes on the schedule…HIIT-style strength and cardio, kickboxing, barre, dance, kettlebell, balance, mind/body, recovery and more. There is a different class format every day and at every time slot, which means our members will never have to repeat a workout. So, what I would like the world to know is unlike most Instructors who have chosen to focus on one style or teaching modality, I made it my mission to learn and get certified in as many formats as possible so I could not only train other Instructors to teach with this variety-method in mind, but to also demonstrate the importance of this training style to our members. The lessons I have learned is that there are a lot of trends that come and go in the group fitness industry and as tempting as it is to immerse yourself in the newest craze or trendy piece of equipment, it’s best to stick to what truly benefits the human body. Follow safe practices that improve balance, posture and true strength – and that replicates functionality in every day life. Strapping on a bouncy pair of boots or speed jumping on a mini-tramp looks fun, but I always ask myself what that might do to someone’s ankles and knees if taught in the group setting before investing my time or money in to bringing on this new trend at our studio.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We are fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful places on the east coast of the US. Our first day would start with a long walk along the Jupiter beach. Walking down on the sand with our yoga mats and flowing thru a few sun salutations would be a great start to our walk. After a quick shower back at the house, my husband would take us for a boat ride to Guanabanas in Jupiter. We would start with an A1A Lemonade cocktail and have some fish tacos for lunch. After a stop across the street at Blueline Surf and Paddle for a little shopping, we would slow cruise back home admiring the beautiful houses along the Intracoastal. Of course day number 2 would start out at Tribe Studio for one of the best group fitness classes ever. A day at the beach relaxing with Prosecco and Stick Figure on the wireless speaker would definitely have to follow that up. Dinner at The Cooper in Palm Beach Gardens is the perfect ending. Each day would very similar. Lots of salt and sun and great restaurants like Stage and Riverhouse in Palm Beach Gardens, Lynoras in Tequesta and Frigates in North Palm Beach. And more shopping at local small businesses like Vagabond Apparel and Palm Harbor Boutique!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My husband, Dan Bowers, deserves a shoutout for sure. For as long as we’ve been together (almost 30 years!) Dan has been the ultimate partner. Through the births and raising our three children, along with multiple moves + house renovations and changes and growth in his own career, Dan has always supported me in everything I’ve wanted to do. He became my official business partner when we decided to open Tribe Studio and helped me with everything from lease negotiations and construction build out all the way up to grand opening day.
