Two entrepreneurs start new fitness based partnership in downtown Kalamazoo

Lean Body Studio and bent9 Hot Yoga are now partners. 

Nicole Rzeznik, the head trainer for Lean Body Studio Kalamazoo, had operated an in-home studio for the past two years. Now Lean Body Studio will operate from the bent9 Hot Yoga location on the corner of North Burdick and Eleanor streets. Kelli Rapaski owns of the Lean Body Studio, based in Birmingham, Mich.

"Kelli and I are so excited for this next chapter in our businesses," says Tatiana Otto, the owner of bent9. “bent9 has been occupying this space for over two years and has had great success with yoga. So this partnership could not be more perfect to help grow the clientele for both studios and expand beyond the scope to have yoga and cardio plus strength classes under  one roof.”

Though they share a space at 309 N. Burdick Street, #101, LBS Kalamazoo and bent9 Hot Yoga will continue as individual entities regarding class pricing and packages. 

Client package pricing and details are available on the Mind Body app by selecting the bent9 hot yoga studio (under pricing). LBS of Kalamazoo is also on the Mind Body App  within the bent9 Hot Yoga Class Schedule.

"With a recent partnership with bent9 for a few classes, the success grew tons of buzz which has now created our current partnership between the two studios,” says Rapaski.
