hola everybody
I am just getting all my gadgets set up
so that I can record this as well so
that I can put this on to our websites
so if you just bear with me and just
give a chance for anybody who wants to
come on – come on if you have any
questions while I’m chatting away just
pop it into the comment box I will read
that and I will try and pound it into
here but the reason I wanted to do this
was because I get a lot of questions and
emails coming through for people who are
interested in doing their Pilates
teacher training but obviously they have
a lot of questions and there’s been
quite a few questions on this that are
the same so I thought well and do a
little video for you guys and then you
can get the answers so I have about 18
questions that have come through from
everybody so we’ll get started
so the first one has been where are we
based so we are in Newton a bit but it’s
on the back roads between youths and
haven’t talked to you so there’s no
public transport there we’re about a
couple of miles from your train station
you can cycle on that road but it’s not
a very safe way to walk on someone don’t
recommend it if you are coming by train
and you do need transport we can sort
something with you so just let us know
in advance we can help you with that
and then along with where are we we are
in Newton Abbot in Devon and we’re very
lucky to have a studio near the
Airstream which is beautiful and the
accommodation so we’ve actually got some
of our choirs run air B&B so we have got
a couple of rooms that they rent out and
that not sure with the price but it’s
such a very cheap and they stay in
Bishop stains in which overlooks the ash
tree so you will need access to
transport if you’re gonna stay there but
again being in Devon we’re quite used to
needing transport so just get in touch
with us if if you struggling with that
and then also passage house hotel in
Kingston has done as a corporate deal so
I will put all the information in the
feed for you so that is the
accommodation so there’s hotels around
castle chance hotel I think it’s a Best
Western which overlooks the Airstream
and then we’ve got some ladies about
Anna Lane that run air B&B at their
lovely place in Bishop’s Stainton like I
said I’ll put their details from cinema
speed so mimic on how much time will I
need so how you do one thing is how you
do everything so you can race through
this through the course and do the bare
minimum or you could actually put a bit
of effort into it and really study so
the course itself is 300 hours you are
at the studio between 70 and 80 of those
hours with us and then the rest of the
time is pre study for your exam and I’ll
go through those that as well and there
are spaces between the weekends for your
case study and all of that stuff so it’s
it is doable it’s just depending on your
commitment but there’s a lot and if you
can do Excel then there’s a lot of copy
of pace so that will
some time for you and again we’re trying
to do as much as we can in the studio so
that you haven’t got tons and tons of
homework to do but obviously this is a
diploma and there is some work required
so Amanda asked me how much studying is
there so put it this way I’m not
academic at all I’m quite thick when it
comes to studying but what I did is I
registered I can’t remember how long I
registered before my course but I took
the post-it notes and I took the
textbook the textbooks about that big
it’s not massive but you do need to
study and I just put a little pace of
notes on every two pages or three pages
of the dates I was going to study and
what I was going to study so that I had
a study plan ahead of me so it wasn’t
like cramming at the last minute so you
know how you retain information and how
you study I had to really put a lot of
effort into it because I don’t retain
information like a parent I’m a doer I
learn by a lot by doing so there is
there is a fair amount of studying but
it’s it’s achievable so you’re not going
to go and do a degree or anything like
that it’s unfortunately I don’t have one
of the new books but it’s about that
much study and there’s two books so and
then moving on it’s like how are the
exams done so your exams are done on our
computer so you’ll need to bring a
laptop in there multiple-choice
questions and you’re getting your marks
straight away so it’s not the end of the
world if you don’t get through the exam
we do the exam on the first day and then
we do we have allocated a time at the
end of the course to reset the exam and
by then we go through loads and loads
and loads and loads of exercises
teaching you the anatomy and muscles and
stuff but more in relationship Pilates
and what’s actually in the training
manuals but it will definitely help you
with
or exams so while I’d like to say don’t
worry about the exam I know it’s it is
nerve-wracking but it’s multiple choice
and the gravy isn’t the end of the world
if you don’t get through the first one
so try not to stress too much about it
she says that needs to poo and pee and
vomit before every assess so next
question is what are the assessments and
how are they done so there’s various
assessments through the course the
course has some written worksheets and
there used to be three written ones but
now there’s one written one and the
other two are done online on an online
platform which you’ll get access to so
that makes a little bit easier for you
as well and then the other assessments
you will have a group teaching
assessment but again there’s gonna be
plenty of opportunity for you to
practice your teaching through the
course
so we’ll do group teaching you’ll pair
up and practice teaching with that and
then also all your coursework that you
do that gets marked and that’s what part
of your assessments as well so it’s not
just an exam and stuff there’s various
assessment things but you know we don’t
just chuck it in on the deep end we’re
there to support you all the way and
guide you through your preparation for
your assessments oh and I’ll answer next
and heart often will I teach we try and
get your teaching as much as you can and
I know it’s daunting
I wanna yoga teacher training even
though I’m a qualified yoga teacher and
I teach Pilates and I teach things I
still shut myself when I’m gonna go and
teach on my Goga course so it is
completely normal to feel that but when
I’m finished I’m like yes and I really
enjoy it so if you aren’t nervous then
then it’s are you actually that excited
about it so a little bit of nerves is
good for you
moving I’ve got my glasses on I’ve not
done much Pilates before colossal
t-shirts in an ideal world the more
Pilates experience you have the better
it is on one side of it on the other
side of it is we don’t know where you’ve
taught or how you’ve trained or what
your experience is so you may have
picked up some bad habits it’s like
anything else even when they used to be
in the police doing driver training it
was better to have a new person to any
pass then someone has been driving for
20 years because we get all those bad
habits that they’ve put it out of us
first before they can take us through
the proper training so every exercise we
do gets broken down into small pieces we
go through why we do what we do what
muscles it’s working
how you would use this in your class or
was the private client so every single
exercise we teach gets broken down so it
doesn’t really matter if you haven’t got
that much experience but it is nice
especially if you can attempt lots of
classes with different teachers so that
you can pick up different teaching
styles and you can actually start to
reflect on their teaching style and
their teaching techniques and start
learning yeah do you need any other
qualifications no you don’t know
providing you can read and write English
I would assume I don’t think there are
any others in different languages but
yes you need to read and write because
there’s a lot of paperwork but apart
from that you don’t need to do in have
any other qualifications so we’ve had a
mess we’ve had a contact from a few
people that are like do instructors and
so if you have a level 2 exercise and
nutrition certificate you might need to
set that exam
and if you have a level three anatomy
and physiology you might need to set
that exam so like we had a lady on our
last course whose level five
massage therapy so she was beyond level
three and asked me on physiology so she
didn’t have to set that example she just
had to do the level two so it may be
that you can be excluded from one of
them or when I mentioned early about
what if you fell the exams don’t worry
you can reset them again in fact I’m a
someone that’s done that five times so
what does the course consists of so
there’s various elements to the level
three course so the qualification you’re
actually registering for is a diploma at
a level 3 diploma in teaching Pilates
now that is the most recognised
qualification in the UK and most fitness
centers gyms will ask for that
qualification anub is also recognized by
reps which is the exercise register of
exercise professionals and they are
worldwide known worldwide and we are
actually registered with them as well to
teach the plotters so we do our
qualification through YMCA who is one of
the UK’s leading fitness qualification
providers it’s a big sentence of words
for mine mouth so you will probably come
across the same course lots of different
places it’s just how we deliver it might
be might vary from place to place so
what does the course consists of so as I
mentioned you have worksheets so you
might have like what qualities do you
need to become a platitude so stuff like
that and then we’ll have Health and
Safety and history of Pilates and
there’s three of those worksheets then
there’s the group teaching so you have
to teach an hours class you need to have
a private client that you do a case
study for so case study
is we’re going to teach you how to do
posture assessments then you’re going to
do a posture assessments on your client
and write a lesson plan for that the
12-week lesson plan for them so to help
maybe they’ve got an injury and you want
help them with that or get stronger for
a fitness event or whatever it is so
that’s what you’re going to work on and
a routine plan and then of course always
your exams so there’s two elements of
teaching private clients we don’t see
you do your private teaching that is
done at home you need to do three
sessions with them we see you teach in
the grip class you have your worksheets
and that is all you don’t have that’s
all your course so yes and reps I’ve
mentioned already which is the register
of exercise professional do you need to
bring your only husband no you won’t be
doing that at our studio so we have
everything for you so you don’t need to
worry about any conference I’m just
going through the questions make sure
I’ve got everything something that’s so
come up in the past is oh I can’t do so
it’s an exercise does that mean I can
teach so when I first started teaching
Pilates and Mary Claire who taught me
will battle me with my Oakland leg
rockers
I couldn’t get my legs straight they
were bent and it was not very pretty but
doesn’t mean you can’t teach something
so you could have you think of an
Olympic athlete do you think their coach
can run under ten like Usain Bolt do you
think his coach could could do that it
doesn’t mean he can’t cut it so you will
learn different ways of teaching within
the class so you’ll learn by
demonstration how to give cues
and all that kind of stuff is not
necessary that you can do every single
exercise it does help but there are ways
around it so don’t let that put you off
and you know and actually sometimes it’s
nice for clients to see when you can’t
do something because it just shows that
you’re human as well so it’s I don’t
believe it’s necessarily a bad thing
if you can’t do certain things here’s a
little example Paul does not teach
windmill arms because he’s got no
coordination so it’s just you know we
are each individual and what you you
will come out in your own classes your
own personality the stuff that you can
and can’t do and it’s okay if you can’t
do something really is this not the end
of the world there’s war going on in the
world rather than worrying if your
Pilates teacher can do an open leg
rocker or something and then I just
wanted to give you a little bit of
background about me and Paul so try to
think you know I’ve been in the fitness
world for many many many many years my
mom is a bodybuilder being up on stage
back in 1959 was all the big mr.
universes john paul Getty Jayne
Mansfield ask your parents who they are
they’ve they’ll my Paul’s dad has done
obviously bodybuilding as well and he’s
been up on stage so we’ve had a lifetime
of fitness in our blood I did a lot of
running in my younger days I don’t do
any now my knees don’t cope as it admits
but many hours in the gym did lots of
sports at school etc and Paul as well as
big X runner
Paul then went on to do his Sports
Science degree I think it was about 2000
somewhere out there and he’s massage he
does a lot of rehab sports massage and
was
so teachers plotters and pause strength
is with private clients helping them
recover from injuries postural
rehabilitation all that kind of stuff
and my strength is in the classes you
know and I was said it’s quite daunting
when you start teaching classes and we
might get quite nervous when I first
started my whole intention was never to
teach any classes I was shitting myself
at the prospect of even having to start
classes my idea was to teach the private
clients and now to love the classes we
have a right or giggle in them and Paul
does all the private line cities with
classes as well but I thrive in the
classes so try not to let put you off
the prospects although the fear of
having to stand up in front of a class
because you’ll soon get over that and
you will really really enjoy it I
absolutely love it and gone off on a
tangent there so if there is anything
else I’ve tried to answer most of the
questions for you if there’s anything
else that you want to find out from me I
will put a link to the website
underneath it’s got the course dates and
the price for January and for September
and January and I’ll also put those
links for the accommodation for you was
there another link I was going to put on
no so is the accommodation and the
website so I hope that has helped by all
means if you have more questions or I’ve
confused you or maybe or you need more
clarification just send me a private
message and we’ll arrange a chat yeah so
I hope that is everything I’m wonderful
gods on something but have a lovely
evening and I will catch up with you
later
oh wow that’s Denisof there we go
