Why Club Pilates?

Our intense and intimate studio setting provides the foundation for the course. Club Pilates has an open studio policy for all participants in our Teacher Training program. We provide round-the-clock assistance in the most positive and nurturing way during your journey through the training program.

In the program, we dive immediately into the structure of the human body – covering anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, and applied kinesiology. You will learn the difference in muscle fiber types and how and where oxygen exchange occurs in the body. You’ll use these fundamentals throughout the in-depth and rigorous Club Pilates Teacher Training program – first learning how your body works, and then how to apply this knowledge through Pilates-evolved and Pilates-based exercises.

While mastering Pilates movements and techniques, our student teachers learn how to address the many imbalances and injuries that people face in day-to-day life. Graduates of our training program develop a complete understanding of the musculoskeletal structure and system, gaining insight to help clients suffering from many types of injury, while safely exercising and challenging all individuals.

We spend hundreds of hours together and enjoyment of the journey is our top priority, especially in such an intense learning situation. Club Pilates has built a family of comprehensively-trained instructors. Each Pilates trainer brings their individual background, personality, and experience with Pilates into their individual teaching style – truly the beauty of this work. We encourage individuality and creativity while teaching you how to safely apply the Pilates fundamentals and techniques.

The Club Pilates Teacher Training Program is the first 500-hour Pilates training program to emphasize teaching group Pilates equipment classes to up to 12 people at a time. The program provides a challenging yet nurturing environment for dedicated Pilates practitioners who wish to become Pilates Trainers.

Our graduates are trained in detailed applications of the Pilates Method of exercise and are chosen for teaching opportunities based on their knowledge and ability to adapt the Pilates exercises to clients of all levels.

In addition, our staff is very experienced in handling sports-related injuries, including shoulder dislocations, knee reconstruction, bulging discs, multiple sprained and broken ankles, other injuries, and pre- and post-natal modifications. Our trainers have an in-depth knowledge of kinesiology and safe Pilates practices for those with injuries, and those who are fit.
