Retired rugby league star Robbie Farah becomes KX Pilates franchise owner

Retired rugby league star Robbie Farah becomes KX Pilates franchise owner
January 11, 2022

KX Pilates, Australia's largest Reformer Pilates brand, has announced that former professional rugby league star Robbie Farah, and sister-in-law Laila Farah, are the new owners of the 81st KX Pilates studio to open in Australia.

Robbie Farah is known for his career as the Captain of the NSW Blues team while Laila Farah already owns KX Pilates studios in Arcadia and Alexandria with her husband Eddie Farah.

Robbie Farah was inspired to start training in Pilates at a young age by his brother Eddie, who is now a physiotherapist.

Needing to strengthen his core after back surgery, the retired NRL player is a huge believer in the benefits of Reformer Pilates.

Laila Farah was a KX Pilates client before she opened her first studio in Arcadia and then her second in Alexandria.

The studio opened in the Sydney suburb of Concord in late November.
