Frequently asked questions

Is the Pilates course recognised?

Yes: by REPs, CIMSPA and ACSM.

What do I need to attend?

The Pilates Instructor course is delivered part time. You’ll complete as home study the online course material, and complete the 20 hours of practicum (where you observe a qualified Pilates instructor in a commercial facility) and portfolio consisting of worksheets and session planning.

You’ll book onto and attend a Stage 1 Pilates training weekend and a Stage 2 Pilates training weekend, in that order. You’ll then need to book onto a scheduled Pilates assessment day on which you’ll hand in your portfolio and perform your practical assessment. You need to bring three participants with you for the practical assessment, unless you arrange with us beforehand to submit a video for the practical assessment (for which you’ll need six participants). Conditions and additional fees apply to the video option, so please call the Learner Support team for more information. You’ll submit the practicum evidence before the assessment day.

What support is available during the Pilates course?

Learner Support – As well as the support you receive from your tutor on a Pilates training weekend, you’ll also have access to our Learner Support team, dedicated to assisting you with study questions and queries. The team is generally available via phone, email or through the Help Desk Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm; and Saturday and Sunday 11am to 4pm GMT, excluding bank holidays and office closures.

eClasses – We offer a library of eClasses on a variety of topics covered in your course, during which we go over content and answer questions you might have about it. Once enrolled, the library can be found under My Account on our website.

Feedback Service – During your course you’ll be assessed in various ways, including via portfolio, and theory and practical assessments. You’re able to send us a video of what you intend to do for your practical assessment and or what you intend to submit as your portfolio beforehand and one of our qualified assessors will provide you with feedback. You need to do this at least two weeks prior to the due date of the assessment or the submission date of the portfolio. Additional fees apply.

What are the pre-requisites?

You’ll need a basic level of English and Maths to understand the content.

You don’t need a prior fitness qualification to enrol on the Pilates course; however, if you already hold a Level 2 Certificate in Fitness Instructing qualification you might be eligible for exemptions from certain parts of this course so that you can start at the Level 3 section. Please call us for more information.

This Pilates Instructor training course requires physical exertion and individual participation is essential, therefore a degree of physical fitness is necessary. Relevant personal experience of participating in Pilates classes is helpful.

With our app* you can complete your online course material, manage your bookings onto assessment days, and view your electronic certificates, all while on the move.

Common Pilates Questions

Do you need to be qualified to teach Pilates?

If you want to teach Pilates, you will need a qualification from a recognised and reputable course provider. You may need your Level 2 Fitness Qualification too, unless this is included in the Pilates course.

If you don’t have your Level 2, you could complete our Level 2 Gym Instructor course and then begin your Pilates studies.

How do I become a Pilates Instructor?

First, you should have an interest and some experience in Pilates. From there you should find a recognised course provider offering REPs accredited Pilates courses. Once you have found the right course, enrol and begin your studies.

How long will it take to get qualified?

This can depend on the course you have selected. If it’s distance learning, you will work through the course material in your own time and attend assessment days. If the course is part time or full time, you will attend the scheduled classes for the specified length of time which can be a matter of weeks or months.

Our course is a blend of online learning, training weekends and assessment days. Work through the online material using our bespoke app and then book into training days with our trainers.

How much Pilates experience do I need?

It is recommended that you have attended Pilates classes before embarking on a course. You don’t have to be an expert, but you should have a basic understanding of Pilates. Your studies will benefit if you have a passion for the subject.

How much can I charge per class?

A Pilates Instructor can charge up to £30 per person for group classes. For a one to one class, a Pilates instructor can expect to charge from £50 per hour. In a health club, pre-set rates tend to be between £20-£25 per hour. Much of what you could earn will depend on location and the type of venue you are delivering classes in.

Where can I work once I’ve qualified?

As a Pilates instructor you have some flexibility. You can work in a boutique studio, from a client’s home, from a home studio, in a gym or health club or in a local hall.

Are there different types of Pilates?

Pilates includes two main styles of exercises, Mat and Reformer. While reformer Pilates may yield results more quickly, Mat Pilates is still an incredibly effective method. Over the long term both styles will yield similar results.
