Pilates Trainer Professional

Overview

The goal of Pilates, according to its founder, Joseph Pilates, is the “attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body with a sound mind, and the ability to perform life’s daily activities with zest and ease”. Indeed, people who do Pilates regularly feel they have better posture, are less prone to injury, and experience better overall health.

Pilates is a body conditioning routine that seeks to build flexibility, strength, endurance, and coordination without adding muscle bulk. For decades, it's been the exercise of choice for dancers and gymnasts (and now Hollywood actors).

This course is designed to develop you as a professional Pilates trainer, offering you the flexibility to study, and then teach, without giving up your day job. If you already work in the fitness industry, adding Pilates to your CV will enhance your opportunities to teach more classes and add variety to your week.

Each lesson teaches you the fundamentals of the Pilates system and guides you towards running your own classes. Over the course of eight lessons you will build up a compendium of over 100 exercises which you can integrate into a wide range of other disciplines, such as yoga or dance, or simply teach as a specialism. The opportunities are wide and varied!
