Best Pilates Personal Training in London
Where can you find the Best Pilates Personal Training in London?
With so many Pilates studios in London offering Pilates one-on-one training, you must ask yourself where can you find the best Best Pilates Personal Training in London?
Here’s some advise from an highly experienced, fully qualified Pilates instructor and registered Osteopath.
The first thing often people go for when they choose a personal trainer, is their personality.
If you get on with the instructor, its very likely that you are happy to stick to your training.
No doubt, you must like the style and personality of the instructor. But beyond that, their credentials, training and experience are equally important. Personality and charm realistically should not compensate for lack of training knowledge and accreditation in a trainer. In order to find the best Pilates personal training in London you must look for the following:
What to look for in a prospect Pilates personal trainer
Find out: Where they trained? Did they complete the final examinations? What level of training did they achieve (full certification)? Did they complete their advanced certification? Ask about specialty training (rehabilitation, athletic performance, pre-post natal, older populations, special populations)
The level of training is much greater in someone who completed their full certification in all pieces of equipment versus someone who only finished the reformer course. Therefore, if you are only planning on working on the reformer, you might be happy with the latter instructor.
I strongly believe that in order to really get the greater picture of the client, an instructor needs to have trained in all pieces of equipment and all levels, including the advanced repertoire. As a result, only then one can truly understand the scope of the complete Pilates work.
Certification programs vary from institution to institution. Nowadays anyone can obtain ‘quicky’ in-house qualification from a Pilates studio and teach Pilates. However, this doesn’t mean that the programme is worldwide accepted or recognised by exercise accreditation body, as REPS.
Look for instructors that have graduated from prestigious worldwide-recognised Pilates institutions such as STOTT PILATES®, Body Balance, BASI or the very classical New York methods.
Contemporary method STOTT PILATES® is based on modern principles of exercise science and rehabilitation, which make it safer and available to people of all levels and abilities.
When it comes to delivering the best Pilates instruction, experience does plays a major role but it’s not everything. An experienced instructor will have the experienced eye for precision and will have been working with bodies for years. However, less experienced instructors are not necessarily less capable. I have sometimes seen less experienced instructors who have just completed full certifications and are eager to deliver with passion their newly acquired knowledge. That is to say that they have done their homework, they possess a true talent and passion for Pilates and have that drive that is needed to teach.
Freshly qualified instructors who keep learning and absorbing information and are able to deliver good training.
In contrast, some seasoned instructors stop learning or never complete their full training. Therefore their teaching can become stale and outdated. There are also those instructors who have been teaching for years but who actually never completed their certification exams or maintained their professional development and continuing education credits.
Consequently, there is a fine balance of finding an experience instructor who certified fully and continues to learn and keeps the passion and interest throughout his/her career.
In order to get the full breath of the Pilates work you will need to train on all the Pilates apparatuses. Your top choice one-on-one Pilates instructor should be fully qualified in all pieces of equipment: Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair and Barrels. Interestingly, the reformer is not the only Pilates piece of equipment. You must train on all the pieces of equipment to really understand Pilates. The best Pilates personal training in London will be with an instructor who is qualified in all levels, in pieces of equipment and can deliver personalised modifications for you.
Train with the best quality equipment, such as STOTT PILATES® equipment.
You must like your personal trainer, relate to him/her and be able to have a laugh. His/her personality will determine whether you stick around for more training or not. Your best Pilates personal training in London should be client focused.
