What is Fitness Pilates?

Fitness Pilates was created by Rachel Holmes in 2002 as a fitness/group exercise version of traditional Pilates delivered in a contemporary style for qualified Fitness Professionals.

It began as a workshop called Equilibrium which fused Pilates with Stretch and Yoga and transformed into Fitness Pilates in 2002/2003.

Rachel began running workshops and training course around the UK, Europe and North America from 2003.

The training updates annually and incorporates new exercise and movement science but has its roots firmly in traditional Pilates and Controlology.

Fitness Pilates is a group exercise class that focuses on the body as a human kinetic chain. By applying the fundamental Pilates technique and exercises Fitness Pilates aims to offset musculoskeletal imbalances, improve posture, movement quality, mobility, flexibility,  mental cognition, core strength, form and function in a non-intimidating, highly accessible and enjoyable way. 

The aim of Fitness Pilates is to identify basic postural  and movement imbalances and through Pilates based exercises and breath:

  • Increase muscular balance and strength.
  • Improve clients posture.
  • Facilitate the clients’ ability to optimally function occupationally and recreationally.
  • Improve core strength.

    I did this course with Kelly Reed Banks, it was great. Kelly was really knowledgeable, very helpful and patient. It was packed with information and you always felt you could ask if there was something you were unsure of.
    The two days went so quickly (and I was sorry it was over) I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this course.

    I did Rachel’s Fitness Pilates course many years ago and it is one of my most successful classes.
    The course provided lots of material to allow me to create an interesting and varied class from day one, and there are always new ideas and variations being posted through her Facebook groups. I thoroughly recommend Fitness Pilates for any Group Fitness Instructor. I ran classes in the UK for several years and then brought them out to Australia where they are going from strength to strength.

    I trained for this qualification back in 2016. All i can say is that it is one of the best moves i have made! Great content, and i started teaching straightaway. You do need to be practicing Pilates before going onto the course, this helps. Really recommend this as as a gateway into teaching Pilates.
