I have my certification from Spencer Pilates. And like I told John, I use it every day for my clients. Spencer Pilates is a blend of strength and flexibility training that improves posture, creates lean muscles and aids breathing and concentration. I am so happy to be offering this to my clients. I have a background in personal fitness, but did not have much knowledge in Pilates. I was happy when I began to read the information John sent me that this was the course I wanted to take. Not only did I learn how to teach and perform Pilates, but I also was taught the history of the Pilates programs. This is a great program! If you are a trainer or just want to learn about Pilates on your own, this is the course! Thanks John, we’ll be talking soon.

I am so grateful for the NESTA certification programs. I completed the Spencer Pilates program in the beginning of January, and started my own business two weeks later. The program is extremely well designed. It effectively combines written text along with a series of videos, which enable the student to thoroughly grasp each concept. I truly appreciated the accessibility to Dr. John Spencer Ellis and his staff. They are available to answer all questions, and encourage you to achieve your goals. There is absolutely no other certification program like it. After completing the program, I felt 100% confident in my ability to pass along my knowledge to my students. As I mentioned earlier, I now have my own business in South Orange County, and I absolutely love what I do. Helping people attain their fitness goals and making a living doing it is a dream come true. I would encourage any fitness enthusiast to complete this program! Thanks so much NESTA!
