Frequently Asked Questions

At what point in my training can I start teaching classes?

While you are training you can get student insurance from a company called Balens in order to teach, but you must declare that you are in training and charge a lower rate than you would if you were a fully qualified Pilates Instructor. You will, of course, need a proof of training letter from us in order to do this, and it will also be subject to eligibility criteria.

How can I fit my training around my life?

Future Fit Training offers flexible training solutions, which means we build your programme around you, your commitments, and the time you can dedicate to study. If your circumstances change, we simply re-work your training plan. Previous students have taken time out to have babies, change jobs, start work – all sorts of reasons.

Most of the theory that underpins the practical part of our courses is delivered via e-learning. This gives you the freedom and flexibility to study wherever and whenever you want. Also, we deliver the largest number of practical mat Pilates courses in the UK, so you should have plenty of course dates to choose from.

How experienced are the School of Pilates teachers?

The teaching team in the School of Pilates are highly experienced Pilates teachers and expert course tutors. Each tutor must pass a comprehensive teacher training programme within the School of Pilates to ensure you get the high quality tuition our reputation is built on. They’ll provide you with the knowledge and information you need to achieve your goals and will do everything they can to support and help you succeed.

How much could I earn as a Pilates Instructor?

As with any other job, income for Pilates Teachers varies according to geographical location, skills and experience. Pilates Teachers are typically paid by the hour from £30 to £100 in either an individual or group setting.

Is it better to take the course in Mat Pilates and add on the extra courses at a later date?

This is entirely your choice. If you are new to the fitness industry and ‘testing the water’, our advice would be to complete the standard Mat Pilates Instructor Course in the first instance. This will give you the chance to learn and achieve each part at a pace that suits you. If you are already a fitness trainer or Personal Trainer, we suggest you complete the Exercise Specialist Pilates Instructor Course as this will give you additional qualifications straight away to offer your client base and open further opportunities to you.

What equipment will I need to study online?

You should find it very straightforward to study your e-learning. All you need is a PC, laptop or Mac, a reliable internet connection, headphones or speakers (some courses contain video), and a printer for printing resources (optional).

In order to get the best results from your e-learning, we recommend that you use a device that is less than four years old with a recent version of Windows or MacOS. We also suggest that you use Google Chrome as your default browser.

Our courses will run on smartphones and tablets. However, we strongly recommend that you use a computer or laptop as your main device for studying. Apart from the small screen on a smartphone, writing notes and case studies on a virtual keyboard can be frustrating. Also, streaming e-learning can be a drain on your battery and won’t provide an ideal viewing or learning experience.

In summary, a computer or laptop in a quiet room will enable you to get the best results from your studying.
