Pilates… It’s All The Same, Right?!
Do you think you’ve already tried Pilates…at your local gym or at your country club?
Well, think again.
Did you know that the Pilates industry is not regulated?
There are innumerable, cheap programs around, and poorly trained instructors that have taken advantage of the outstanding reputation of Pilates.
You can even buy a certification off of the internet without ever having to demonstrate knowledge and teaching skills.
Working with a poorly trained instructor you may not get the benefits that Pilates promises, and you could even get hurt by working with inadequately trained instructors.
