Pilates is a series of controlled movement exercises aimed at strengthening the body and mind. It has become a very popular approach for individuals of all ages to promote health and fitness within gym environments, studios, sports halls, parks, or in the home.

The Level 3 Diploma in Instructing Pilates Matwork uses a combination of online learning and practical workshops to give fitness professionals the knowledge and skills needed to safely and effectively plan and deliver Pilates exercise sessions.

The qualification looks at the 34 original Pilates matwork exercises, the benefits of utilising Pilates workouts, and its applications for developing muscular fitness, core stability, flexibility, coordination and balance.

At the end of this qualifications attendees should understand the principles of Pilates Matwork and the phases within a well structured class, and be able to competently deliver a range of Pilates exercises.

The course is therefore aimed at any fitness professional as a means to potentially venture into employment within a group-exercise setting as a Pilates Matwork Instructor, and receive the associated financial benefits. Achievement of this qualification will also expand the skill-set of the trainer (for use during one-to-one or group-training), enhancing their CV, and improving their reputation and functionality within a fitness environment.







Some experience of Pilates classes is highly recommended

This qualification also requires some physical exertion and individual participation is essential; therefore, a degree of physical fitness is necessary. There is also an element of communication (speaking, reading and writing) involved, and learners should possess basic communication skills.
