Welcome to Pilates3T™

Pilates3T™ is a Pilates Teacher Training program Template that can be used by the independent Pilates studio to implement a quality teacher training program.

The focus of Pilates3T™ is threefold:

  1. to assure that the student participating in the teacher training program satisfies the criteria for certification by the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA),
  2. to facilitate approval of the teacher training program by the studio’s state post-secondary education board, and
  3. to encourage that providers of teacher training themselves have comprehensive training in and have graduated from reputable Pilates training systems.

Pilates3T™ is not a franchise. It is a framework around which the independent Pilates studio can build its own teacher training program. The independent Pilates studio operator purchases the rights to the Template. Pilates3T™ was designed by Marissa Lins, owner of Madison Pilates and the Midwest Pilates Institute in Madison, Wisconsin, after a lengthy and tedious approval process with her state approval board. Midwest Pilates Institute became the first and only state-approved private Pilates school in Wisconsin in August 2011.

Why is Pilates3T™ desirable? For the independent Pilates studio owner who is interested in training students to become Pilates teachers, Pilates3T™ quickly shows what is expected of the studio owner in order to provide high-level training to others; and it promotes minimal standardization, thus enhancing the independent studio’s credibility in the health community while maintaining its individuality.

For schools that have already been operating, Pilates3T™ will assist in expediting the requirements necessary to become state-approved within your own states jurisdiction.

Pilates3T™ has helped schools setup teaching training programs in numerous states throughout the US.
