Pilates Principles For Fitness Professionals

Course Description:

Think Pilates for Fitness Professionals is a simple as a few 1minute plank holds on the mat?! Think again! Pilates for Fitness Professionals will inspire you as a trainer, to ensure that your clients and gym goers have the most functionally sound and strong core for their exercise needs. Throughout the workshop we’ll show you how to incorporate Pilates based moves within your training practice, and how to get maximum benefit from postural correction and an understanding of the biomechanics behind some of the most popular moves.  Pilates can be a bit of a grey area for many PTs, but the benefits of core strength are well founded in terms of decreased injury and increased client mobility. This course has been developed specifically to give Fitness Professionals an understanding of the basic Pilates Principles to assist clients with these goals.

Attendee Reviews:

Lisa provides the perfect balance of focusing on technique & letting you work on your core to know how the exercises should really feel – highly recommend this course as an intro to Pilates fundamentals. I feel much more confident in programming client core work in sessions. Charlene Bowman

I’ve participated in Pilates classes before but never really felt like I could teach others the finer points of the movements, Lisa explained clearly about the muscle activation and technique involved and taught us some really cool new core exercises – loved it! Tristan Snowfitn
