Quick Start

Easy as 1, 2, 3... Purchase the Course. Pass the Test. Print Your Certificate


1. Purchase the Course
Create your Free personal student account here on our site in 30 seconds or less. Choose and purchase any Pilates Course you want, starting with the basic level. Choosing multiple courses is permitted. (For students with limited fitness experience we recommend taking and completing one course at a time.) There are 3 levels for each Pilates program. For example, the Reformer Program consists of Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced course levels. The basic level must be completed before access is granted to the intermediate level, and the intermediate must be completed before moving on to the advanced.

24/7 access to our “virtual classroom” is available for all students. Proceed through the course(s) on your own schedule, morning, noon, or night. Learn while at the beach or from the top of a mountain, the choice is yours… Purchase your Pilates Training Manuals and Pilates Guides at our online store. These resources will greatly enhance your learning experience. We recommend ordering these materials when purchasing the course. Visit our online store for other valuable products and equipment.

2. Pass the Test
At the end of each level there is a timed, multiple choice, online test, which students must pass before gaining access to the next level. There are 3 tests per program. After completing all 3 levels, and successfully passing each test, you have satisfied the requirements for your course completion certificate.*

3. Print Your Certificate
You can now print your official Course Completion Certificate! All certificates are issued by The Pilates Studio® of Los Angeles and are signed by Melinda Bryan, Principal Pilates Master Teacher Trainer. Your name and student identification number will be printed on each personalized certificate.

*For reduced pricing on all courses, choose from the Combined Course Catalog.

Select "The Complete Pilates Program”  and receive all 5 courses required for Full Pilates Certification at the most substantial savings.

Note: At the end of each course each Student Member receives a printable "Course Completion Certificate" which will include his/her full name. These "Course Completion Certificates," are typically used and or presented as proof of basic Pilates knowledge, to secure employment, to gain acceptance for Pilates apprenticeship by other Pilates centers, or for continued education purposes. Students may print as many "Course Completion Certificates" as they desire.

These "Course Completion Certificates" differ from the Final "official" Pilates Instructor Certificate. Final Pilates Instructor Certification Certificates, with official logo and seal, are not printable online. Pilates Instructor Certification Certificates are signed by Melinda Bryan only, and are mailed to students directly from our Los Angeles office upon completion of all certification requirements.
