New Balanced Body Education® For Fitness Instructors endorsed by Active IQ

24 Apr 2024
In the UK, the Group Reformer education program can be delivered as an onsite developed to meet a customer’s specific needs / Balanced Body
Balanced Body ®, global leaders in Pilates equipment and education, have received Active IQ endorsement for its newly launched professional education programme specifically designed to upskill fitness instructors with a Group Reformer Pilates certification in direct response to global market demand.

The Active IQ Professional Recognition Service has now confirmed that both the Balanced Body ‘Reformer 1 For the Fitness Professional’ and the ‘Reformer 2 For the Fitness Professional’ programmes have received a Silver License, covering both courses.

Active IQ’s Professional Recognition service complements its suite of regulated certifications and organisations to enhance the status of their own non-regulated training programmes by gaining the Active IQ professional kite mark of quality.

Regarding the courses, Joy Puleo, Director of Education explains: “Created for fitness professionals, our aim was to develop an accessible, flexible education program that holds relevance to the instructor’s wider work with clients. Our “Group Reformer for the Fitness” curriculum meets the instructor where they are, upskilling them in the Pilates method with strong emphasis on quality of movement, proper breathing technique and the connection of mind and body in motion.”

“Some Pilates education has a reputation of being long, expensive, rigid, and esoteric. We are breaking down those barriers whilst maintaining our exceptional education standards.”

The program fully aligns to Balanced Body’s incumbent Pilates Reformer Instructor program. If instructors complete the new Group Reformer education and feel they want to extend their knowledge and learning, they can seamlessly join the Reformer Pilates Instructor training.

In the UK, the Group Reformer education program can be delivered as an onsite developed to meet a customer’s specific needs, at one of our partner venues or at the Balanced Body Training Centre.

The Group Reformer education program is available for booking now.

Testimonial
" Every Studio we’ve opened since 2007, we’ve equipped with Balanced Body Reformers - including our new Kings Cross flagship studio. There are good reasons why they remain our brand of choice. One, the relationship we have with Ken, and the Balanced Body team. And two, the equipment you use says a lot about you as a brand. They’re not cheap but you absolutely get what you pay for. Their reformers are rock solid, easy to adjust and practically indestructible - despite some of our clients’ best efforts!"
– Justin Rogers, Creative Director, Ten Health & Fitness
Testimonial
Balanced Body equipment was essential in providing LifeTime customers with premium Pilates experiences. They are exceptional in terms of quality, timeliness, and customer service. Our account manager provided on-time consultation, equipment, and parts delivery for our 200+ locations. Balanced Body even customized a reformer to meet the needs of our discerning Pilates instructors! I highly recommend Balanced Body as the best Pilates partner.
– Eduardo Perez, consultant, Pilates club industry and former Director of Pilates, LifeTime Inc
