Active IQ Pilates Teacher Training Program

Active IQ are one of the UK’s leading Awarding Organisations for the Active Leisure, Learning and Wellbeing Sector. They are an awarding organisation recognised and regulated by Ofqual within the Active leisure sector designing qualifications that support clearly defined career pathways.

Our Pilates teacher training programs have been officially recognised by Active IQ and also display their recognition across our certification. This meaning that our programs have been carefully assessed by the Active IQ to ensure that they meet their official guidelines for training providers and that our students come away with a professionally recognised certification.

Our programs enable the learner to be able to go on to teach Dynamic Reformer Pilates Group and one to one classes. They are designed specifically for fully qualified Pilates instructor to expand, develop and further their teaching knowledge and education.

Although you must be suitably qualified to take part in our programs, you do not need to be qualified in reformer Pilates itself; a mat work qualification alone will suffice as our Beginner/Intermediate teacher training Program is a fully comprehensive program. However we do specify that all students should have completed at least ten reformer Pilates classes, be it Dynamic style or Classical. It is also preferred that students have had experience teaching group classes (Pilates or other fitness group classes) if this is what they plan to go on and teach thereafter.

Where will my certificate allow me to teach?

There are a limited amount of studios that specifically offer Dynamic Reformer Pilates in the UK, especially outside of London. Therefore, learning this style and gaining this certification is an excellent business opportunity should you wish to open your own studio or perhaps franchise a Power Pilates UK studio.

If you already own/teach in a studio it may be a good opportunity to introduce Dynamic Reformer Pilates to your/their timetable. And if you plan on approaching other Dynamic Reformer Pilates studios, then although a few offer in house training, it would be advantageous for any studio to employ a new trainer who has a certification proving their knowledge and ability of the style in hand and some studio may not chose to train you up.

If you live locally to our studio, there may also be the opportunity for selected student to teach for us at Power Pilates UK.

Once certified, your certification will not expire, however it is recommended that you continue your training with us to complete at least the Advanced program and then the specialised programs in Cardio Bounce and HIIT Pilates if you so wish to go on and teach these classes.

It is always recommended as a trainer that you continue to regularly take part in classes to inspire and keep you up to date with new exercises. And as part of our franchise opportunity, you (and your trainers) would be trained quarterly by us throughout the year on refresher training days.
