Learn more about how you can develop the skills to excel in the industry!

Dear friend,

Are you interested in taking your Pilates to a place where people will pay YOU good money to teach them Pilates?

Have you ever looked into becoming a teacher?  It is very hard to compare apples to apples, so here’s what you’re going to want to look for:

  • Training that goes beyond the moves of the exercises so that you will be confident teaching ANY client
  • A program that works with your daily life and isn’t overwhelming
  • Access to teacher trainers to get feedback and encouragement on your teaching ongoing as well as to answer ALL your questions (not just when you’re in the studio)
  • Understanding of muscle balancing so that teaching really is detective work – FUN and engaging!
  • Strong skills so that you will retain clients and get referrals

That’s to be a good Pilates instructor that enjoys their job. 

But in order to be profitable, you’ll need some business training as well because passion alone won’t make money.
Almost 40% of Pilates Instructors stop teaching after less than 2 years.WHY?
They don't have the skills and tools to sustain - it's not because they don't love Pilates!

Pilates Freedom training will help you build a sustainable, profitable, & satisfying career

This Could be you!

Are you ready to step out of what you’ve always done and ENJOY getting to help others?  

Do you want to be the expert that everyone respects and wants to work with?  

This is your chance to set your own schedule, make great money, and be fulfilled by your job.

Have you ever had back pain?

I was a dance major studying to go to physical therapy school when my back started hurting.  The physical therapists said that it was due to my scoliosis and were treating it regularly.  But it NEVER. STOPPED. HURTING.  I was scared – if this was what my health was like in my 20s, was I resigned to back pain for the rest of my life?  How could I do the job of a physical therapist if I was in pain just standing up?  

I was introduced to Pilates and my teacher pointed out that my left foot arch was collapsed.  We started working on correcting it as well as addressing my body’s asymmetries and not only did the pain go away but now, over 20 years and 7 births later, it has not returned!  

I was hooked and decided to take training to become a Pilates instructor instead of going to physical therapy school.  But the first training I went through was sorely lacking, there was very little content and not much feedback on my teaching.  So I took another one that had a lot of content but it left me on my own completely to learn how to teach. I wanted to really understand the nuances and develop the skills to empower clients – where was that?  I felt like I was running in place and spending money recklessly in the search of being a great teacher.   Now, I have taken 4 separate basic training programs as well as over 50 workshops and conferences and gotten my skills, but this clearly was not the most efficient route to becoming a great instructor!  And nowhere does anyone talk about the business side of things which is key to a successful career.

You don’t have to go through what I did!

You can benefit from my experience and avoid the common pitfalls of Pilates teacher training

Now after having been a Pilates teacher trainer for over 20 years, I have seen what works and what doesn’t – what skills students need to have to succeed and where the problems always seem to occur in the process.  And for the first time, by leveraging technology, we are able to amplify the positives and eliminate the negatives so that you can become your personal best Pilates instructor in as little time as possible.  

Save time & money and make sure you become a brilliant Pilates instructor!

Frequent Concerns & Questions

When you're interested in Pilates teacher training you should ask LOTS of questions to fully understand the process and end result you will be getting

This program utilizes the Balanced Body curriculum which is the industry gold standard and exceeds all the NPCP standards and requirements.

We also enjoy the best manuals and streaming videos in the industry.

We have seen this be a huge blocking factor.  Our program is 100% online which means that you don’t need to be near a local training studio or travel extensively in order to get a top-notch education!

Most training programs do their training in a series of weekend modules which we have found overwhelming and hard to schedule.  

Instead, we have bite sized pieces so that you can fully absorb the material and integrate the training into your daily life.  

You will be able to do our whole program out of the comfort of your home!  If you don’t have the small equipment and Reformer, we have an option to include these in your training bundle.  We’re happy to walk you through this decision.  

For Pilates certification, there are a certain number of observation, personal session, and teaching hours that you have to complete.  With many programs, the personal sessions can add up to costing as much as the training modules!  

When you complete our program, you’ll have these finished and just need 100 teaching hours which you can do as part of your first job, meaning you can earn money while finishing up.

Most studios do not require a certification in order to teach which is often because they are so desperate for instructors.

What they really care about is that you have the skills to take good care of their clients.  In this program, we are not only going to teach you the exercises but also make sure that you are skilled at teaching them so you will be invaluable to any studio!

You will be able to go anywhere in the world and be welcomed with a Balanced Body certification.  This is not just a local studio training which may not be recognized in other locations. 

NONE!  

The more Pilates you have done (mat and Reformer particularly), the better as it will make your classwork easier.  

You will actually have multiple Pilates teacher trainers to give you feedback on your progress and teaching, answer your questions, and mentor you.  Our program actually gives you 70% of your hours live with the teacher trainers  which is more than the in-person programs.  You are not left on your own to get your hours done with no feedback.

You will also have access to our online forums where our students interact with each other and with the teacher trainers.  Even if you are not physically near each other, you will have a tribe that is continually developing your Pilates skills together.

When you are in the program you will be working with other students primarily.  Yes, we encourage you to work with your friends and family for the rest of your hours – that is if you don’t already have a job!

The best part is that we’ll give you all the tricks and tips to getting a job or starting your own business.  You will not be left without any clients!

There are many possibilities!  
We coach students to choose the right format for them right from the beginning.  Many students choose to work for established businesses while others choose to be their own boss.  The choice is yours!

The four basic formats are 1) traditional studio  2) group class studio 3) home studio and 4) online studio.  Within these four options are lots of combinations and options to find the perfect fit for everyone.

Think of your training as going to college – because it will open up doors based on real skills you develop so that you can grow personally, help others, and enjoy a lucrative career!

What career is there that you don’t have to go to college for and after 5 years earn over $100k in bigger cities?  

No, we can help you with funding options.  Connect with us and we can figure out a good fit for you!
