The Pilates Sports Center Difference

fleur de lis 

  • PSC offers 124 hours of instructional time vs. other programs, which may require lots of “outside hours” but not actual instruction time.
  • PSC believes in the anatomically based concepts of “neutral spine” to support the spine’s natural curves, a departure from the “pelvic tilt” to flatten the back.
  • All PSC Masters have achieved a high level of excellence in their field, hold multiple diplomas, have passed rigorous testing, and are PMA Certified Pilates Teachers™.
  • Expensive books, DVDs or classes are NOT required at an extra cost.
  • PSC  both “East Coast”/Classical and a “West Coast”/Progressive execution throughout the program to create a well-rounded instructor. 
  • PSC offers 2 options: – a Comprehensive “All-In-One” 15-week course or a “Modular” program to learn the Mat and Equipment individual.
  • PSC requires an entrance and exit interview / exam to accept and graduate only those who are truly ready. PSC is proud to be an educational leader who cares about the integrity and success of our graduates.
  • Small group size for the best learning experience – plenty of equipment and Instructor time. 12 Participants MAX!
  • PSC teaches the equipment repertoire on the 5 various “models” of the Reformer, 3 types of Wunda Chair, and 2 Types of Cadillac equipment to understand how to adapt to different studio environments. 
  • Students learn how to maintain, modify, and perform safety servicing of the Pilates equipment.
  • Many variations and modifications are taught to assist a client with injuries or special needs. This creates the most capable and skilled trainer.
