Q:

How do you become a Pilates teacher in Glasgow?

A:

Becoming a Pilates instructor in the United Kingdom requires a Level 3 Diploma in Mat Pilates, which replaces the Level 3 Certificate in Pilates Instruction that was the industry standard prior to 2012. Training is available at many locations in and around London and at the EnergyWise Academy in Edinburgh. Some training also is available online.

Course work for obtaining a Level 3 Diploma in Mat Pilates consists of a combination of didactic learning, demonstrations and hands-on experience. At Pilates Training Solutions in Surrey, for example, the curriculum includes anatomy and physiology for health and wellness; health, safety and welfare in a fitness environment; and principles of exercise, fitness and health. Additional classes on planning, teaching and delivering a Pilates course also are included. Some providers require the learner to possess a teaching qualification and evidence of having passed a recognized anatomy and physiology exam before beginning the Pilates course, so it is important to check qualifications before enrolling.

The Level 3 Diploma in Mat Pilates is not inexpensive; fees typically are about £1995. However, many training establishments allow learners to pay a small down payment and the balance in installments.

Most Pilates studios in Glasgow require trainers to have a diploma from a school recognized by the Register of Exercise Professionals, an independent organization that grants various qualifications to fitness professionals throughout the United Kingdom. Typically, these courses also have Central YMCA Qualifications, which include a wide array of fitness qualifications awarded to private trainers, schools and other organizations in the United Kingdom and internationally.
