The growth, expansion and popularity of Pilates has spawned an evolution in the training of instructors to the classes being taught to students. I was recently given the task of finding Pilates Reformer instructors to teach for the facility that I work for, only to find this to be a very difficult task. In an effort to find instructors trained and certified three specific types of Pilates methods, I found several of newly developed Pilates trainings throughout the Chicagoland area available to individuals looking to become Pilates instructors. My search for instructors and training were done on the internet and below are two of the studios and trainings that I found in my on-line search.
Pilates Chicago is a one such facility using the foundation of Joseph Pilates original programming Pilates Chicago offers a very comprehensive, detailed reformer training program. Head instructor/owner Jennifer Golden Zumann is passionate about the program that Chicago Pilates offers and loves to share her knowledge of Pilates to all who want to learn and teach others about the positive benefits that Pilates has to offer. I was able to speak briefly with Jen and I learned that her instructor program is so good that local clubs hire her students the minute they complete her instructor training classes.
