PTC13 Level 1Congrats to our newest Pilates Technique Certification Trainees. Level 1 Lecture was last weekend. The new group did a great job learning, teaching and executing the Level 1 exercises. Some of the Trainees expressed how they had found muscles they didn't know they had. At the end of the Saturday lecture, most everyone couldn't believe that day was over as they thought it so much fun. They said the day went be really fast. The Second day went equally fast and the trainees expressed how they didn't want the lectures to end. Now, the new trainees have begun working on their hours. Over the next 5 weeks, they will be practice teaching, self-working out and Observing. For those of you who missed this round of certification, don't worry....Our next Lecture series will begin in September.

Happy New Year from Pilates Technique Certification!

The New Year is a great time to remember to make a commitment to yourself and your health! Joseph Pilates was far ahead of his time; his concepts still ring true today.  He believed you should exercise your body every day with controlled, moderate movements.  Doing so keeps your body healthy and ready for the harsh stressors of the day. When you make Pilates and other exercise part of your daily ritual, you get blood circulating, nerves stretched and muscles conditioned to take on whatever the day has to offer.

Exercise where the movements are moderate and within the body’s range of movement, are healthiest for your joints.  Joseph Pilates had people move their joints within a defined range of movement.  This range of movement is different for everyone.  I have heard people say, " I could never do Pilates, have you seen some of those pictures on the Internet of people upside down!"  These are advanced movements, done within the range of the person's body in the picture. Know that Real Pilates Technique.....

“What type of Pilates certification do I need to become a successful Instructor?”

We get asked this question a lot.  First and foremost, who is the main instructor of the program? You want a teacher that has many years of experience and who has worked as close to Joseph Pilates as possible. And a program that has certified countless successful students who have went on to teach and open their own studios.

Know that in order to be a Pilates Instructor that works on a regular basis, you should get a full certification.  You are learning a vocation, to become a confident  expert in your field.  An intensive course that is 9 months long, will be much more beneficial to your career, than a program that is a weekend certification or only a few months. Putting the time and effort into your education will directly correlate to the amount of work you will get as a certified Pilates Instructor.
