Core Reform Certification


CORE REFORM™ is the modern adaptation of traditional pilates and functional fitness specifically designed for teaching large group classes. It focuses on functionality, strengthening, lengthening and toning the body while applying the Smart Movement® concepts of stabilization.

The combinations are easy to follow yet challenging and effective. The choreographed routines are an energetic, safe and fun workout that can be combined with music to motivate and inspire. All the playlists from the Core Barre and Core Suspend System can be used for Core Reform group classes.

While the emphasis of the movements in Core Barre are of an isometric nature, Core Reform™ introduces the challenge of building strength in the eccentric / lengthening phase of the movements. The system adds resistance and plyometric training for more of an athletic workout that really takes traditional pilates to the next generation...but without losing the essence of mindful and Smart Movement®.

Learn to teach a fun flowing workout, connecting breath and movement, while working the body at all times in a tension free manner.

Be inspired to teach as clients develop muscle and motor control in pre-programmed exercises that challenge the body in multiplane movements with exercise variations that take the Reformer to a whole new level!

Incorporate the use of small props such a weighted balls and the theraband with the pilates Reformer. Learn variations and modifications that are suitable for all levels of fitness.

Core Reform™ is a simple and appealing approach to movement that promises to strengthen, lengthen and tone.
