International Training School

The FITNESS PILATES FORMULA training School and Body Mind Gym, Ltd have partnered together to provide an “alliance of excellence” to the Pilates world.
FITNESS PILATES FORMULA is well known for its pragmatic vision that is in line with the demands of our time. Fitness Pilates Formula excels through the application of an innovative teaching methodology that utilizes advanced cognitive systems of learning that facilitate the elaboration, assimilation and storage of information. This avoids information overload, energy waste and distress. Utilizing modern and highly advanced educational methods, the learning methodology speeds up the assimilation of the entire Pilates system.

The student easily learns how to embody the essence of each exercise, how to lead, guide and cue others, while simultaneously progress in his own personal exercise practice.

FITNESS PILATES FORMULA capitalizes on a wide range of sophisticated learning approaches derived from the most recent application of Neuro Linguistic Programming, Sports Psychology and Advanced Super Learning Systems.
Our advanced Pilates study programs cover the field of anatomy and biomechanics by providing “hands on” training in the comfort of your studio, health club, clinic or hotel.

FITNESS PILATES FORMULA combines multidimensional learning modalities that optimize learning. The use of creativity is encouraged along with a precise utilization of cognitive strategies that awaken our bodies intelligence to develop deep knowledge.

Our programs create highly qualified Pilates instructors ready to work and join this profession with passion, expertise and professionalism.
Our goal is to promote training at the highest level, in order to set up a strong foundation that enables students to develop effective programs for a wide range of clients. Part of the curriculum will focus on developing the student's ability to use interactive, explicative and synthetic communication methods to maximize their professional exposure.

The FITNESS PILATES FORMULA professional manuals provide a strong theoretical background for students and describe in detail all 250 exercises and their modifications.

Fitness pilates formula philosophic teaching

It isn't the quantity of time invested in teaching or learning, but the quality of teaching that determines how much time is needed to learn.

Make one hour of teaching equal to ten hours of class time.

Make difficult matters easy to comprehend and learn.

Use simple language that conveys your deep knowledge when teaching the material. In this way you create a powerful educational tool for students and clients and facilitate marketing your Pilates practice.

The best anatomy book is our body, the best mechanical model is our movement. We discover them by studying Pilates and learn about anatomy and human biomechanics during our hands-on practice.

Once you are on the REFORMER … you are already feeling better !

Elastic strength keeps our bodies and mind young.

You can know all there is to know about Pilates, but if you don't know how to share your time teaching your clients with empathy, you'll never be a great Pilates teacher.

Clients are looking for the “Pilates experience”. You are the facilitator, the guide and the instructor.

It isn't how many years you teach or practice Pilates, it's -how- you teach or practice.

The map isn't the territory. The Pilates exercises must be adapted to meet individual differences. The ability to adapt a program to fit each client’s needs is what makes a simple teacher into an artist.

The best teachers are your clients !
