Furthering its breadth and depth of relevant health and fitness education

The International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) brings to market a one-of-a-kind Virtual Pilates Instructor Program, allowing fitness professionals to enhance their offering and increase revenue.

Students will learn the basic principles of exercise, fitness, and health and how to program and deliver a safe and effective Pilates teaching session based on individual client needs, goals, and movement limitations.

"Pilates offers a host of physical benefits including improved balance, flexibility, and core strength, and also plays a role in healthy aging and managing physical conditions," said ISSA CEO Andrew Wyant. "Incorporating Pilates into our offering aligns perfectly with our continued quest to increase our breadth and depth of relevant education that will help fitness pros improve people's lives."

The course delivers a greater understanding of human anatomy and physiology as well as basic and advanced Pilates movements and how to foster health, safety, and welfare in a fitness environment. Students will be able to modify a client's Pilates workout plan as needed, either increasing or decreasing its intensity based on their situation and desired results. This program is designed for any practitioner - not only for those who wish to teach but also for those looking to learn more about the practice of Pilates and incorporate it into their own lives.
