Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE HOST STUDIO?
This is the Club Pilates studio location where Teacher Training students will practice, observe, and go to the in-studio applied learning practical sessions – most likely the studio where you signed up. Always contact your host studio location with any questions in regards to the program. This is the studio you are granted ongoing access to, in order to complete the program.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE COURSE?
Club Pilates is the only 500-hour comprehensive Pilates educational program that also includes specialties in TRX®, barre, and TriggerPoint®. After graduating from our course, these additional specializations will help to make you exponentially more marketable than your competitors. We are also the first and only program with an interactive, online learning portal where you watch the lecture portions of the program at your own pace and in your own comfortable environment. You will watch and study these portions of the course while taking notes prior to attending the first of the in-studio, applied learning practical sessions. You will have access to all online materials and the studio facilities for one year to aid in your completion of the Club Pilates Teacher Training program.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Club Pilates Teacher Training tuition is $4,750. A $2,000 minimum non-refundable deposit is required in order to start. The additional $2,750 can be paid in five installments of $599 each (including a $49 monthly payment processing fee), or in total at any time before the in-studio practical sessions begin. Once the course begins, you have five months to pay the remaining portion.
WHAT DOES TUITION INCLUDE?
$4,750 includes Club Pilates Teacher Training manuals, access to our online educational materials, access to the Host Studio, and guidance from your master trainer/mentorship for an entire year. Access to the Host Studio is provided for up to 12 months upon date of issued personal student fitness liability insurance. Access to a studio is needed to complete program hours.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER COSTS?
After completing your in-studio practical sessions, students need to purchase Personal Liability Insurance in order to to gaining access to the Host Studio for self-practice and practice teaching hours. Insurance must name Host Studio and Club Pilates Franchise LLC as additional insured. Insurance can be purchased through IDEA or the PMA. Students must also purchase one book (listed below under Materials, along with optional resources). Students may also need to print study guides; while the study guides are free, you may have to pay to have them printed, depending on your situation.
ONCE I ENROLL, WHAT CAN I EXPECT?
You will receive login information for our online learning portal within 1-2 business days; you will have access to the portal for one year. Your Host Studio will then follow up with a phone call prior to the first in-studio applied learning practical session.
WHAT ARE IN-STUDIO APPLIED LEARNING SESSIONS?
Club Pilates Teacher Training includes twelve set days of training, presented in a modular series format for the best learning – typically on Saturdays and Sundays. Each session includes five-and-a-half hours of total learning time, with an hour of scheduled breaks since you will be moving and teaching the whole time. Students are required to attend all 12 In-Studio Applied Learning Sessions for their course. Attendance is tracked.
WHAT ARE THE TWELVE MODULES?
On each of the 12 days on which you attend an In-Studio Applied Learning Session, the information presented is referred to as a Module. There are 12 Modules, each with accompanying online material including lectures on anatomy and biomechanics, informative videos, and breakdowns of all of the exercises. Each Module is one day of training.
As a student, you will read/watch the Module 1 content online, print the Module 1 study guide in the online learning portal, and take notes on the study guide as it correlates with the videos; you will then attend the corresponding In-Studio Applied Learning session for Module 1. This repeats through Module 12. After every training session, it helps to review the notes and videos for the Module you just completed, to gain the most information from your training!
WHAT ARE THE ADDITIONAL MATERIALS I WILL NEED?
Students will purchase and read “The Return of Life through Contrology” by Joseph Pilates.
WHAT DO I NEED IN ORDER TO GRADUATE?
You will need to complete all hours and assignments indicated in the online learning portal. Your progress through the course is self-tracked and overseen by your host studio and mentors; we’ll follow you with guidance on how to stay on-course every step of the way. The last steps of your program include practical and applied learning test-outs, as well as a formal exam.
