A program as unique as you are

Club Pilates Teacher Training is the first 500-hour Pilates education program to emphasize teaching group Pilates apparatus classes. Our established, comprehensive program provides a challenging yet nurturing environment, perfect for dedicated practitioners who are ready to take the next step in their journey.

In the program, we dive immediately into the structure of the human body – covering anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and applied kinesiology. You’ll use these fundamentals throughout the in-depth and rigorous studio sessions – first learning how the body works, and then learning how to apply this knowledge through Pilates-evolved and Pilates-based exercises. Our robust online training portal gives you continuous access to support materials.

While mastering Pilates techniques, our student teachers learn how to address the imbalances and injuries that people face in everyday life. Graduates of our training program develop a complete understanding of the musculoskeletal structure and system, gaining valuable insight to help clients suffering from many types of injury, while safely exercising and challenging individuals of all skill and ability levels. We encourage individuality and creativity while teaching you how to safely apply the Pilates fundamentals.
