Get The Facts


Do I need to be a fitness instructor to do this training?

No, you don't need to be a fitness instructor or in the health and fitness field to do our Courses. You simply need a passion for fitness and helping others to achieve their health and fitness goals. We always highly recommend that as part of your journey to becoming a barre and/or Pilates instructor that you also complete a Certificate 3 in Group Fitness. We'll chat more with you about this during the Course.

Help! I don't know whether to do barre or Pilates?

We know it's a tough decision. Pilates is a great one to kick off with because it provides you with the foundations of Pilates. And Pilates is a key element of teaching barre which is a fusion of ballet technique and exercises with Pilates. Having the foundational Pilates knowledge is a great platform to then learn barre. However, everyone's circumstances are different and we encourage you to reach out to and we can chat further about your specific situation.

Can I receive recognition of prior learning ...

Yes! if you are a clinician and are well versed in anatomy and biomechanics, we recommend our clinician stream where we focus on teaching you to use your skillset and apply Pilates and/or barre to the clinical setting. All other requests for RPL will be taken on a case-by-case basis.

I can't attend in person, can i still do this course?

Yes absolutely. In addition to the face-to-face Intensives we run online "face-to-face" Intensives via Zoom. Meaning you can join us from anywhere in the World. Much like our IRL Intensives you will undertake all the practical on zoom with other Students and break into 'rooms' to practice and we'll come back together as a group to share.

Do I have to pay upfront?

You have 2 options to pay for your course! You can either pay upfront or we have a Payment Instalment plan available. All you need to do is pay via the deposit option and we will be in contact to set up a weekly direct debit.

Please be aware that you will not officially graduate your course until all instalments have been paid.

If you complete early and still have remaining payments you have the option to completely pay off your course early and receive your course completion certificate.
