So, you want to become a Pilates Instructor? That’s amazing! I still remember the day I made the decision to sign up for a program. I was elated and NERVOUS! I mean what was I getting myself into? What would I do after? Where would I teach? How much could I make? Was this a hobby or my new career? Actually, the list of questions that buzzed through my head after I charged my credit card for the training was longer than the list of questions I had heading off to college.
Which is why we are here. To help you weigh out all the options, think of as many scenarios and make a well-informed decision. First, do you want to become a Pilates Instructor? Second, how to make the most informed decision on which program to pick.
What this course is not: I will not be promoting any one particular program. I will not be pushing you to become a Classical or Contemporary instructor. I only want to prepare you to make the best-informed decision for your Teaching future that I can.
When I wrote my book, “Profitable Pilates: Everything but the Exercises,” I was motivated by my experience interviewing new teachers and experienced teachers that I could not hire due to the lack of training they had gone through. Pilates equipment they were not trained on, exercises concepts were not taught, no business skills, and sadly many were not even aware of these gaps in their training. I want you to be able to weigh out all of the options. Really know what it is you are about to embark on. In my book, I spend a chapter on picking a program and what it is like as an Apprentice. This course will cover:
• What is a Pilates Instructor?
• How to become a Pilates Instructor?
• Questions to ask potential Pilates programs
