This is the industry's most advanced Level 3 Pilates Reformer Teacher courseEnquire today
Learn how to master the most recognisable piece of Pilates equipment and elevate your teaching career to new heights with this hands-on, industry-recognised reformer course.
The Pilates reformer, or universal reformer, is one of the most recognisable pieces of Pilates apparatus available. It’s also highly adaptable as it’s possible to perform over 500 different exercises. Typically, reformer Pilates is associated with the more clinical adaptation of Joseph Pilates’ methodology and this is why you’d typically find reformers in rehabilitation environments such as physiotherapy clinics.
Recently, reformer Pilates has found itself increasingly in the mainstream consciousness. One of the biggest reasons for this is that, as a society, we are unfortunately more sedentary than ever. The prevalence of poor posture, musculoskeletal disorders and back is at an all-time high. People are turning to Pilates, both reformer and its mat-based counterpart to fix these issues and free themselves from pain.
Our Level 3 Reformer Pilates Teacher course has been designed to help you become an in-demand and life-changing Pilates teacher. It’s also fully recognised by CIMSPA and ACSM.
As standard, we’ll provide access to range of learning materials including bespoke hard copy and digital manuals and unlimited phone and email support from a dedicated tutor. Alongside your home study, you’ll also be given the opportunity to plenty of hands-on reformer experience in a leading studio.
This essentials reformer Pilates course will teach you everything you need to know to become a highly competent and proficient reformer teacher. Specifically, the course includes:
Upon enrolment, you will receive print and digital copies of one of the most comprehensive reformer Pilates manual available. You will also be given access to our online Learner Engagement System (LES) where much of your coursework will be completed.
You will be assessed continually throughout your training courses in a variety of ways and they include:
Upon successful completion of the above assessments, you’ll be awarded the Level 3 Award in Teaching Reformer Pilates (CIMSPA & ACSM endorsed) certificate.
This reformer Pilates teacher training programme is suited to anyone who has a keen interest in mastering what it takes to become a reformer Pilates teacher.
Given the scope and depth of the information presented in this programme, we strongly advise that participants attending this course hold a Level 3 Diploma in Mat Pilates qualification (or equivalent).
Applications may also be considered from students with other fitness industry qualifications (e.g. personal trainers, yoga teachers etc), where they can demonstrate that they have extensive experience of performing Pilates as a participant (e.g. attending classes).
Finally, upon enrolment students are advised to attend as many reformer Pilates classes or sessions as they can in order to give themselves the best opportunity of passing this course. It is not advisable to attend the practical training having never used a reformer.
Prior to attending the first practical training weekend we recommend that you take between 6-10 weeks to complete the home-study activities and familiarise yourself with the contents of the training manuals.
Some students, especially those with more time to study (we recommend around 1 hour per day), or who already have lots of experience in Pilates, may be able to reduce this part of the course.
Important note: Due to the specialist nature of our reformer Pilates courses, we usually deliver them in a dedicated reformer Pilates studio. Therefore, in order to maximise your time on the reformer, it is likely that this course will be delivered later in the working day when the studio has delivered its own timetable for the day (e.g. 11:00-19:00 or 12:00-20:00). Please speak with our Careers Team if you need to know more about start and finish times of specific courses.

We immediately bonded as a group, everyone was very supportive and our tutors were lovely. The formal teaching and practice sessions were very good, but the conversations we had during breaks were also very useful (and I got valuable feedback on my ideas for my business and what to call myself).
I have recently completed my Level 3 Diploma in Mat Pilates with HFE. Initially, I called a few companies to see which company would be the best fit for me. From the beginning, the office/call staff at HFE were friendly, informative and happy to answer all my questions.
I found the theoretical material very interesting and easy to learn both from the manuals and the material you could use online, the e-learning slides and audiobooks. All the contact I had with my personal tutor was excellent!
I have booked another course and am asking for a pay rise from my gym now. I have used the knowledge from the HFE learning/course and already see the benefits for clients from my increased knowledge and also confidence in what services I am allowed to deliver.
