Sweat Fixx is a boutique fitness studio specializing in low impact, high-intensity full body Row and Sculpting workouts. Owner and ex-college basketball player Elise Caira was inspired to launch SweatFixx to help others discover challenging, fun and effective workouts that won’t put unnecessary stress on client’s joints. After two reconstructive knee surgeries, Elise learned firsthand just how many workouts and group fitness classes put a ridiculous amount of stress on the joints. Combining her skills as a personal trainer, yogi, group fitness instructor, and social media consultant she launched her first SweatFixx studio in January 2017 in Wakefield.
“Working with Tristan enabled me the ability to spend time on other areas of the business instead of having to worry about tracking the financials and staying up with tax requirements.” - Elise Caira, Founder & Owner, SweatFixx
Elise initially hired Tristan CPA for tax services, but once the business started taking off she knew she would need more help. By the time she opened the second studio in Arlington in September 2017 she had gone from 6 contract employees to 1 employee and 15 contractors. Having experienced Tristan’s services for taxes, she trusted he would continue to provide highly skilled work for SweatFixx accounting and payroll. Elise says: “Working with Tristan enabled me the ability to spend time on other areas of the business instead of having to worry about tracking the financials and staying up with tax requirements.”
In just 18 months, SweatFixx has become a brand that people recognize in the area, something that Elise is proud to say that she has accomplished without any investors or other partners. By outsourcing her accounting and payroll early on she was able to grow and scale the business quickly! Asked if she has advice for other entrepreneurs, Elise says: “It’s so much easier to start and stay organized from the very beginning. Keeping good records and having someone help you keep your financials in order from the start will save you so much time in the long run!
