The Diploma of Clinical Pilates Makes You an In-Demand Instructor Who Gets the Best (Highest Paying) Group & Private Clients

Here’s The Proof


According to Payscale.com, more experienced Pilates instructors in the U.S. can earn 27% MORE than the average hourly rate.

The Diploma will give you this experience and, based on the statistic above, can increase your annual salary by up to $18,000 PER YEAR. You can almost double your investment in a single year.

The experience, knowledge and skills you’ll gain inside the Diploma will turn you into an in-demand instructor for private clients too.

The Pilates in America Study (2016) showed most clients in the survey spent between $100 to $999 on private classes over six months.

You only need a handful of these higher paying clients who demand the best instructors – which the Diploma will turn you into – to get a return on your investment.

You can even generate MORE than your investment in the Diploma by teaching a weekly online class with 10 clients who each pay $20 per week for a year.

10 clients a week each paying $20 each is $200 per session. 52 sessions a year will make you an extra $10,400.

I’m not saying any of this will happen to you.

Rather I want to give you perspective to show you how quickly and easily you can get a significant return on your investment in the Diploma.

And a few ways the Diploma can transform your future career as a Pilates instructor.

As usual it’s 100% backed by my air-tight money-back guarantee.  

My Personal “You’ll Experience a Transformation” Or Your Money Back Guarantee


I understand this is a significant investment. I want you to feel completely comfortable in your decision.

I truly care about guiding you towards future success like we’ve done with so many others in the past.

The transformations and successes of the 3000+ Diploma graduates speak for themselves.

If you don’t experience the results we’ve promised, we’ll personally work with you 1 on 1 until you do.

If it’s still not right for you, we’ll give a 100% refund of your investment.

I want you to commit to taking action before you make this investment.

We’ve helped over 3000 Pilates Instructors from all walks of life, backgrounds and financial situations transform their careers.

We have a 100% track record.

I promise it will work for you too.

But only if you put in the work and take action.

All I ask is that you show me you’ve:

 P.S. Worried about how much it costs?

Let me put things into perspective:

According to Research.Collegeboard.org, the average cost PER YEAR for a 4-year college degree was $10,740 for in-state residents and a whopping $27,560 PER YEAR for out of state residents in the U.S.

That doesn’t include the yearly $10,000++ for accommodation, food, living expenses etc.

If you wanted to get a degree in physiology, you’re looking at paying around $90,000 if you study in your own state and $150,000 if you study in a different state.

University degrees – both undergraduate and a Masters – have similar insanely high price tags in the UK and Australia too.

I did a four-year degree, and while it gave me a foundation of knowledge, it wasn’t enough.

Nor did it give me the practical steps to implement my knowledge in the real world with real clients who have real injuries.

When I created the Diploma of Clinical Pilates, I did so to condense far more than you’d learn doing a university degree into a one-year program.

Since 2008 we’ve certified more than 3,000 Pilates instructors around the world.

The reasons the Diploma is so popular is because of our incredible community, state-of-the-art learning design, ACE accreditation, and high-touch support both during your program, and after you graduate.
