1 review for Pilates Mat Instructor


    Fitpro is my go-to training institution when it comes to internationally recognized certifications.

    I have completed several courses through Fitpro since 2015, namely Sports Massage, Exercise is Medicine South Africa, as well as various other workshops, with my Pilates Certification being the most recent.

    I highly recommend Fitpro as your choice in helping you take the next step in your career. This institution is by far the most professional, yet challenging, offering excellent value for your money.

    The Pilates certification that I most recently completed, was in every way well-presented. As someone who appreciates good business etiquette, I can only thank the trainer, Sally Ross, for the manner in which she presented this course; she didn’t hesitate to share her knowledge and experience with me, all the while being patient and understanding.

    Fitpro is the way to go. It is a great way to invest in your skillset and training offerings!
