FAQs

What is the difference between BarreConcept and other barre workouts?

BarreConcept is the only barre course in the world to gain international accreditation. We now have accreditation in the UK (Register of Exercise Professionals), America (American Council on Exercise and Pilates Method Alliance), Canada (Canfitpro) and Australia (Fitness Australia and Australian Pilates Method Alliance).

Our instructors are not only trained in the BarreConcept method but also on how to be a great teacher and role model for their clients. Each barre course will vary slightly in content and all will have a similar yet different approach, so there is a course to suit everybody. Our philosophy is that it takes a minimum of twp days to learn all of the comprehensive exercises and then choreograph each of the elements together in a flowing non-stop routine that is fun, challenging and enjoyable.

It is difficult to be a great teacher on a course that is less than two days as exercise knowledge and repertoire will be somewhat limited. Our ethos is to support our students and teachers and to create a warm, welcoming community environment which people want to be part of.

Not only do you receive a lesson plan that is already devised for you, so that you can get up and running immediately upon certification, but you are taught how to choreograph your own routine, so that your classes are always changing and therefore interesting as well as challenging for your clients. The ongoing educational support that our instructor members receive is via the online workouts. This assists our teachers in planning classes and takes the work out of choreographing routines.

What Do Others Think?

"Emma has given me a new lease of life teaching Pilates"

"Emma has helped me recently in so many ways. I have completed her detailed on line courses and feel competent to teach the techniques and exercises straight away after the brilliant videos and instructions. Having had a few issues myself over my teaching and my own business, and loosing some confidence, I contacted Emma who spent time out of her crazy schedule emailing me giving me support and advice which helped so much. Emma has given me a new lease of life teaching Pilates and made me believe in myself again. Thank you so much. "
