Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do I become a Pilates instructor?

A: Pilates instructors typically take a course and earn a certification in teaching Pilates. Some courses may only teach mat or reformer Pilates, while others teach both. Technically, there are no legal license or certification requirements to teach Pilates, but most studios will only hire trained instructors.

Q: Who was Pontius Pilate?

A: Pontius Pilate was a Roman governor in the 1st century. He served under the emperor Tiberius and is known for being a judge at Jesus' trial. Pilate is thought to have been the one to order Jesus' crucifixion. Some people have credited Pontius Pilate with inventing an early form of Pilates, but this is widely disputed.

Q: Who invented Pilates?

A: Joseph Pilates invented this popular form of exercise. He was a nurse in World War I and experimented with putting springs on hospital beds to help patients tone their muscles. This gave him the idea to invent what we now know as the reformer machine. Joseph Pilates opened his first studio in 1923 in New York.
