We offer teacher training in the Reformer, Cadillac, Tower, Chair, and Mat work placing importance on anatomy, movement biomechanics, exercise adaptations, functionality, and the art of teaching Pilates and leading Pilates Classes. Trainees can interact within a dynamic studio, to get a sense of the inner workings of a Pilates studio and have the opportunity to work with a variety of clients.

When we audition to hire Pilates instructors for our studio, we look for people who are creative, knowledgeable in the fundamentals of Pilates, can lay out a challenging workout, people who are leaders, and who have a strong work ethic. Once we’ve done that, we look for the X-factor. That 381/2th dimension to the instructor’s personality that gives our studio that extra edge to set it apart. These are exactly the attributes we incorporate into our Pilates Certification Program, so you can take that fire and passion out into the world and work at the Pilates studio of your choice. After all, you can learn the basics of Pilates anywhere, but to be able to teach students and have them want to come back is an art you’ll find only at Mercury Fitness.
