Sculpt and Core Instructor Training

What type of instructor is this training good for?

Sculpt and Core training is ideal for instructors that want to add a functional, practical movement sequence that increases the heart rate and provides a safe and solid workout for their clients. We focus on longevity of the client and their workout. We prefer safe techniques and proper form, while controlling movement versus faster, harder, heavier.

The Training

We created Sculpt and Core Pilates to provide instructors with a thorough and safe platform on which they can teach a solid mat Pilates and functional training focused interval class. The training is thorough and designed to focus specifically on principles of this class. You will learn anatomy, alignment and form as it relates to Sculpt and Core.

Students will work through multiple break out sessions that give them an opportunity to learn and practice so they are prepared to use verbal and tactile cueing as well as modifications and amplifications to provide their students with the best possible class.

Our recommended format and resources will be provided to students. In our experience working with instructor training programs, there is a lot of time spent on creating and programming the class. With Sculpt and Core, we have taken the guesswork out of the equation. We have a recommended interval format, over 120 exercises that will be reviewed and we have created 100 sets of exercises that can be plugged into the interval format to create an unlimited number of class variations. We created this so that students can spend their time focusing on the anatomy, alignment and form.

Sculpt and Core was created with intention and we believe that if students have an opportunity to focus on details that make a difference in how their clients connect with their movement, we’ve succeeded.

We are proud to be Continuing Education Providers for NASM, AFAA and ACE. If you are certified through one of these providers you will receive the following continuing education credits. NASM 1.9, AFAA 16, ACE 1.6
