I am familiar with NCCA accreditation with respect to group-ex and personal training certifications. However, I’m not familiar with the pilates segment of the fitness industry. If you’re a pilates instructor, can you please tell me how important PMA accreditation is to you and to your ability to get work?
Also, since my first post, I’ve taken my next 25 hour training module with another 20 hours of practice teaching before incorporating those skills into my classes. And I pay for reformer / chair classes with a friend of mine who has her 500-hour Stott certification.
The more I take, I do appreciate the way pilates is laid out as a system, and I’ll eventually do a full PMA course. At the same time, the reformer is a tool, like any other tool in a personal trainer’s toolbox. A tool that can be learned and built into a personal trainer’s programming.
