More info on Group Reformer for Fitness Professionals
Our Group Reformer for Exercise Professionals course is a comprehensive course covering
suitable exercises for beginners and deconditioned clientele, through to high level athletes
and seasoned Pilates devotees.

This course is for any exercise professional taking a job in a Group Reformer studio through
to a health professional wanting to establish their own studio and to deliver programs that
are well founded and involve some “clinical reasoning” We deliver a course that will give
you a deeper understanding of exercise delivery, planning and specificity and the confidence
and understand of the dynamics of what you are delivering.

Our point of difference is this course is designed by a Sports physiotherapist who comes
from a space where the inclusion of an exercise and at what level it is given is validated by
sports science and anatomy knowledge. We train you to understand the movement and the
science and to assess your client.
