Deliver safe and effective Pilates sessions to a whole new client base by combing the Older Adult Award with a specific older adults Pilates workshop.
In the words of founder Joseph Pilates: “We retire too early… Our prime of life should be in the 70s and old age should not come until we are almost 100.” For those who practice Pilates, this popular form of exercise can be used to reduce stress levels, improve balance and strengthen the core. When it comes to age-related conditions such as osteoporosis and arthritis, Pilates has been proven to be incredibly effective in alleviating the symptoms.
Our Level 3 Pilates for Older Adults course is designed to upskill current Pilates teachers, enabling them to safely and effectively work with this rapidly growing special population. It’s also incredibly useful for other fitness professionals wishing to expand their client base.
While on course, you’ll receive individually-tailored support from our expert team of tutors and assessors. This is also unlimited with no caveats, so you’ll be able to access as much help as you need.
This specialised qualification enables an instructor to safely adapt and modify traditional Pilates exercises for older clients.
The following is by far an exhaustive list, but this course includes:

Delighted to have successfully completed the Level 2 Gym Instructor course. Not being in the fitness industry and learning something outside of my day-to-day job, I wasn't sure if I could achieve this, but I did.
I was delighted with my experience with HFE during my period of study for the Diploma in Exercise Referral. From my initial telephone enquiry, through to marking of my final assignment staff were helpful and responsive.
Just completed my first ever fitness course, ETM with HFE. Could not have asked for a better course, loads of information given, regular contact was made to ensure I knew exactly what was going on and when...ideal for a total novice!
The learning materials both in hard copy and through the HFE App are brilliant as I can learn on the go. The new Learner Engagement System is very simple and easy to use, but still has many high-quality resources within it. Looking forward to my upcoming training course!
