Here is what others are saying.
The weekend training was amazing! The teacher was phenomenal, and I learned much more than I expected to. You all shared a wealth of knowledge in a wonderfully supportive environment, and I left feeling completely charged up and inspired. My greatest challenge was (and always has been) speaking in front of groups and that experience alone afforded me the greatest growth! So thank you, I hope to come back as often as my schedule allows to take classes at Power Pilates, and continue to grow as a teacher.

I definitely had a great experience during my training. The instructor was great! She was really positive and took a lot of time to get to know her students and help us along the way. Again, the weekend was invigorating and intense. There is always something more to learn! I love how this training helps us teach! It’s all about your student! I feel like I got a lot out of the weekend and can’t wait to further my education!

Top Reasons To Get Certified in Pilates
An Increased Fitness Level
If you are considering becoming a Pilates instructor then you are already familiar with the amazing health benefits that Pilates brings. During your instructor certification training, you will drastically increase your knowledge of how the body works from an anatomical and biomechanical point of view. This, most importantly, will provide a huge value to the clients you work with but will also significantly improve the effectiveness of your own workouts.
The Satisfaction Of Helping Others
We all know the saying, “It’s better to give than to receive” and nothing drives home this point like being a certified Pilates instructor. Having the knowledge and ability to transform people’s lives into a better version of themselves is an incredible feeling and will bring both satisfaction and fulfillment to your new career.
Having A Career That You Are Passionate About
Finding joy in your work is a must for anyone. There are too many jobs out there today that drive people to an unhappy state in their lives. Getting certified in Pilates is the type of career that brings a passion for health and happiness to a whole new level. Being surrounded by positive people with the same health and fitness goals as yourself makes a huge difference in how you view your life and future. To put in simply, Pilates instructors not only love what they do but also make a difference every day in the lives of people around them.
