Be the first in your market with a certificate to instruct this breakthrough wellness program, Poolates.®

Courses are designed for fitness and wellness professionals who are ready to teach our methods to anyone, including those whose conditions require special exercise considerations. The income opportunities are excellent and if you are involved with bodywork, chiropractic, osteopathic or physical therapy services, Poolates® is a great companion program to offer your clients.

While the in-class training courses are short, they offer in-depth education, and, in each course, participants will be required to pass a short answer, concept-based written exam and a practical teaching exam. Once the course is finished, instructors will have specific recommendations as to what to practice and improve on before teaching their first class.
