Modern Pilates training programs are designed to be both convenient and affordable. Because of this, there is usually a ton of information packed into a series of weekend courses. It’s often difficult for the instructor to take much time away from the coursework to field questions or address any specific concerns. Once the course is over and you start practicing all you have learned, a thousand questions will pop up. We’re here to answer them.
Our Fusion Online Apprentice Courses will reinforce and help to translate all of the knowledge you’ve gained and will help you understand how to apply it in real teaching scenarios. We also strive to fill in any gaps left by your training.
We offer support and mentoring during this next critical phase as you log the teaching, practice, and observation hours that are required by your chosen comprehensive training program. This program was developed in response to our students who wanted and needed continued guidance and support.
Reading the manual and practicing the exercises is one thing, but the chance to observe master trainers in the trenches is invaluable. And the added opportunity for Q&A, so that you can go from the “what” to the “why,” will improve your work by leaps and bounds.
The Fusion Apprentice Courses will also help you enter the test out for your chosen comprehensive training with complete confidence and will help prepare you for the PMA certification (if you are taking it).
Our master teacher trainers provide the time, knowledge, and depth of experience that is so needed for the student teacher. Come observe, ask questions, and immerse yourself in the challenging and rewarding career as a Pilates Instructor with Fusion Pilates Online.

How We Teach:
We use a multifaceted approach to teaching by taking a look at different angles on the same concept. We use the following innovative techniques to go deep into the work, fully exploring each concept in it’s entirety. The following a are the different features that we use to help you log your hours and understand the why of Pilates, instead of just the what:
Your course includes 2 Video Send Ins™ that will be reviewed by our master instructor’s so that they can provide you feedback on your teaching. And 2 Instructor Conferences where you can ask our Master Instructor your specific questions about anything you’d like.
You will print your Course Packet when you first begin the course. It contains Video Trail Guides to give you hints on what to look for as you watch the videos, space for notes and questions. There are also questions that go with our Mentor’s Cut and Let’s Discuss sessions (more below). Everything is organized by session number, so it’s easy to stay organized.
This is the part of your course packet where you log all of your Observation, Practice, and Teaching hours. it’s organized by session so that you can stay organized in a very easy way. When you’re finished, fax this log to your program as proof of your logged hours!
InstaStudio PopUp™ Video
Each segment starts with an InstaStudio PopUp video. This is a real class or session being taught in a real working studio by a real master instructor. This counts as an Observation hour, but it is so much more. Instead of sitting in the corner of a studio watching a session, you will be able to pause, to rewind, to take notes and re-watch anything you’d like. In addition, we make it a bit more interesting by adding our PopUp graphics, which will appear on the screen every few minutes to bring your attention to something that is happening in the session or class – an idea, a tool, an anatomy tip, or a movement principle that you should be aware of.
Session Video & Articles
The second session of each segment contains a video and an article which take a part of the main concept, and break it down even more. A short video and article which will cover important Pilates techniques that you may have missed in your training.
We assign you Teaching and Practice hours to do on your own time. But we give you guidance too, with some key skills to concentrate on as you log these hours.
Mentor’s Cut™ Commentary Video
Have you ever watched an experienced Pilates instructor and wondered, “What are they thinking? Why did they do that?” Well, here’s your chance to find out. This is an opportunity for you to climb into our master instructor’s head for a behind the scenes look at what their thought process is, and why they are making the choices they make. First, you’ll read through some questions about this session in your Course Packet. Then, you’ll watch the same session or class that you saw in the previous session, but now with an added audio commentary by our instructors explaining what’s behind their process as well as other helpful tips and suggestions which will help guide your practice. As you watch, you’ll answer thought provoking questions in your Course Packet.
