I just started teaching reformer classes today at The Pilates Fitness Center in Pacific Palisades... as my first client left, she said to the owners "that was the best Pilates session I've had here in years." It made me feel so confident about my teaching ability.
I thank you and all the staff there at Mercury Fitness for the solid training I have received, as it has allowed me to make a transition and career change that is more aligned with how I've always envisioned living my life... with balance. I have much more happiness and energy, zero pain in my joints, and I very much enjoy helping people and seeing the changes in their body. Big huge thank you!
Lara and her team are phenomenal! You know you're learning from the best. You definitely feel a quality in the training you're receiving, and you complete the course feeling confident and capable!
I decided to pursue my pilates certification, I thoroughly researched a number of programs throughout the San Francisco area and after taking just one class at Mercury Fitness, I knew I'd found a style of pilates that I could become excited and passionate about. Lara's approach is energetic and challenging -- pilates that will make you sweat! And, the training program exceeded all of my expectations -- Lara and her wonderful team gave us a solid background in the history of pilates, the classical methodology and the pertinent anatomy. The intimate class sizes allowed for tons of hands-on practice and very meaningful question-and-answer dialogue. Additionally, the staff at Mercury has been incredibly generous in accommodating the student teachers observation and practice hours. As a personal trainer, the certification from Mercury fitness has added a whole new dimension to what I can offer clients and I'm already using it on a daily basis.
I recently went through the Mercury Fitness Pilates Certification Program for the Mat & Reformer and I am currently working to fulfill all of my requirements to reach certification. Lara is an energized and nurturing teacher who provides students with the knowledge and skills they need to not only teach Pilates, but teach it with genuine understanding and passion . Additionally, the weekend program schedule was great because it didn't interfere with my busy work weeks!
