This is an opportunity to begin didactic training in an approved Pilates program, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM), or the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and to observe, co-teach, role-play, and research best evidence in health and fitness. This 3- to 6-month program also includes workshops in customer loyalty, integrative health care synergy-building activities, and practice modifying instruction for clients of all ages and abilities.
