The Peak Pilates Mat Certification Program provides a solid foundation in the Classical Mat exercises, while delivering the tools necessary to progress individual clients and group classes safely and effectively in a health club or studio setting. All levels teach the corresponding exercises, while layering in Building Blocks, Modifications, and Exercise Guidelines designed to make you a more confident and effective teacher. We focus on "real life teaching," helping to prepare for the reality of what happens after the course is finished, and how to set yourself—and your class—up for success.
This 17.5-hour course teaches the foundations of Pilates with an examination on how to execute the exercises, as well as an introduction to teaching the classical form of Pilates in a very clear and concise manner. This course also introduces the Peak Pilates 5 Part Formula for Success – a powerful tool to help you develop your full potential as a Pilates instructor.
Certification Requirements: The training includes 16 course contact hours, plus a 2-hour assessment on the second day. A Basic Mat Certification will be awarded upon completing the 16-hour course, successful completion of the assessment and completion of 30 logged hours within three months following the workshop.
Course Materials: The course materials include the Peak Pilates Mat and Fundamentals Instructor Manual and the Peak Pilates Basic and Intermediate Mat and Dynamic Mat DVDs.
Prerequisite: None. 15 hours of Classical Mat classes are highly recommended.
