Don’t Skimp On Your Education

01

Qualified Pilates professionals are in demand. Education and training is the most important investment you’ll make in your future as a Pilates professional. Not all Pilates training is created or regarded as equal. It’s important for your future job prospects to choose a well regarded certification.

There’s no way to get properly trained and certified as a Pilates Instructor from a single weekend course. If you’re already a fitness professional, and just want to add a couple basic Pilates exercises to a routine, then perhaps a weekend course will do. However, if you’re driven to help people understand the benefits of Pilates and how it improves everyday life for everyone, from high level athletes to the elderly, and if you want to help people rehabilitate from injury or be able to teach clients about the biomechanics of movement and the benefits of Pilates — then you need to invest in comprehensive training.

Arming you with internationally recognized qualifications, a STOTT PILATES® certification will give you the tools you need to succeed at the highest levels.

“Any nerves I had quickly subsided thanks to the encouraging and supportive environment created by Holly. Approachable, kind, and willing to help in any way she can, Holly’s instruction and guidance created the perfect conditions needed to teach future teachers how to thrive.”
— DANNY, PENNSYLVANIA
“Holly is the embodiment of passion! It was my absolute pleasure to learn from you this weekend. You went over so many exercises I have not been exposed to except when doing the training. An eye opening weekend it was!”
— MERYL, NEW JERSEY
Blue Sparrow Pilates has the best teaching faculty! The faculty are extremely knowledgeable about the body and movement. I enjoyed each course and personally learned a lot about my body movements and how to teach others. I highly recommend this in depth Pilates education.
