Master instructors are exceptional Pilates professionals with years of experience and the ability and passion to train new instructors. MIs either own studios that are education centers, or work at facilities where they lead trainings. All Peak Pilates® Master Instructors are dedicated to representing Peak Pilates® education with the upmost integrity and commitment. They are independent contractors who receive a fee for services when conducting trainings.
A Peak Pilates® Education Center is a facility where Peak Pilates® teacher trainings are offered to the public. Our Education Centers are an integral part of the Peak Pilates® education program and have a full studio of Peak Pilates® equipment. Our education partners represent the quality and dedication that Peak Pilates® stands for in both education and equipment quality. In order to become an MI you must own your own studio or work in a facility that will host our education programs and workshops. Education centers schedule and hold trainings throughout the year, and help to market and promote the trainings to prospective students. They share a commitment with Peak Pilates® to develop excellent Pilates instructors, and they also share in the rewards, receiving a generous portion of the training revenue.
Once a studio is established as a Peak Pilates® Education Center, it is required to schedule a minimum number of comprehensive trainings, mat trainings and continuing education workshops per year. In most cases, this is two mat trainings, two Level I trainings, one Level II, one Level III, and 4-6 continuing education workshops.
Education Centers and Master Instructors enjoy the recognition of representing the esteemed Peak Pilates® education program and playing an integral role in furthering the development of the professional Pilates community. They also enrich their careers and businesses with new income streams.
