Whether you’re ready to take on the rewarding role of teaching Pilates to others or simply want to enhance your own knowledge and practice, Pilates teaching courses are an invaluable resource. However, not all Pilates teacher courses are created equal and it’s essential that you find high quality training which will provide you with the skills you need to teach others. Let’s take a look at how you can find a reputable Pilates teaching course in Melbourne.
Do your research online
If you look online for Pilates training, you’re likely to come across literally thousands of options and not all them will be credible. If you see a course you like the look of, the first thing you need to do is visit the website and take a closer look to ensure that it’s reputable. Does it clearly outline what’s involved with the various courses? Are there testimonials on the website? Does the website seem professional? All of these factors will help you determine if it’s a legitimate training course.
Speak to your Pilates teacher
One of the best resources when it comes to finding a quality Pilates course is your regular Pilates teacher. Speak to your teacher about your desire to pursue your Pilates journey further and see if they have any recommendations. If you like the look of a particular course, ask them if they’ve heard of the course before and see if they can give you any insight into the reputation of the school.
Look for a certified course
For peace of mind that you’ll be undertaking a quality course, look for a program which is endorsed and/or accredited by reputable bodies in the fitness industries, such as the Fitness Institute of Australia and Fitness Australia. Also, look into the qualifications of the teachers running the courses to ensure they have the necessary experience to be carrying out the training.
Check what the course involves
Although it’s normal for an introductory Pilates courses to be short, once you get into a more intensive Pilates training course you should expect that you’ll receive the necessary training to be able to go on to teach effectively. Look at what is covered in the various modules and how many hours of hands on training you’ll receive. A high quality course will not only support you during the course itself but will also have post course requirements where you’ll need to participate, observe and co-teach before you are able to teach by yourself.
