5.1 Pilates Studio Apparatus Induction


Studio Apparatus Induction :-

This 20 hour course covers the needs of Studio Owners and the UK Fitness Insurance industry to ensure that all instructors completing the module and its formative and  summative assessment are competent in 3 areas.

1)      Health and Safety (Studio in general and equipment specific)

Participants will be taught the  Health and Safety requirements of running a Pilates studio and will be shown how to produce Risk assessments for their studios,  the equipment within it and for each of their clients, and update as necessary.

Participants will be shown how to maintain, clean and check for wear and tear the key parts of each piece of apparatus .

2)      Safe Teaching and demonstrating on the Apparatus

Participants will be taught how to operate all components of a range of brands of Pilates apparatus effectively and safely,  both as a participant; when demonstrating,  and as a teacher when supporting a client or clients.

3)      Effective Induction of new clients on studio Apparatus

Participants will be shown, and then be expected to demonstrate the ability to deliver a clear, comprehensive induction for a client or member of the public attending a studio for the first time such that following the induction the client would feel comfortable to attend an equipment based class  or one on one without being overwhelmed.



Participants on this module must either be Medically qualified Physical Therapists (Physiotherapists, Chiroptactors, Osteopaths or similar) or they must be able to show evidence of a Level 3 or equivalent Pilates Matwork qualification.

In some circumstances, for those who are teaching Pilates Matwork without evidence of an awarding body certification we will consider evidence of having attended a recognised Pilates Matwork course in conjunction with current evidence from a UK insurer that you are insured by them to be teaching Pilates Matwork.
