The course information and DVD were valuable in my learning process. The test was great! I am still waiting to get my offical certification in the mail.

FiTOUR® Modern Pilates Certification

The book by Rael Isacowitz is extremely thorough.
Posted August 9, 2011 by Linda Navarro from Hollywood, FL
There was so much involved with the information in this book. It would have been helpful to view a DVD of some of the different exercises on the equipment (maybe mat exercises, too). Unless you've worked on this equipment there is no sure way of knowing the full scope. I recommend a 2 day workshop for this certification. I know I need additional training other than reading and trying the mat exercises on my own.

Easy to follow

The video portion of this certification was very helpful and detailed. She didn't just read from the manual and demonstrated all techniques for easier understanding. The manual was a great review for general fitness information and has great examples for a beginning instructor to utilize for their first classes!

The group exercise certification is a very basic study IF you have already studied fitness. If you haven't it is good beginning and the affordability is perfect for a beginning fitness professional. Reading the book first and then watching the DVD for review really helped instill the knowledge

Really enjoyed the course. Technical information was shared very easily. Once you hit the water, all the information was very user friendly. Instructor was very professional; her knowledge was in-depth, yet on a level that the class could understand.

Covered all major topics. Very clear in format

The video in conjunction to the manual is an excellent way to drive home the subject manner. I thought this course was very well taught and put together.
Covers All The Basics Very Comprehensively

I'm doing this on the way to the Master Practitioner certification and the main feedback I would offer is true for any online exam like this where it is possible to be open book - as it would be impossible to police this anyway. I would give no more than one minute of time per question otherwise you leave way too much time for people to hunt for answers and to not really learn the material. This reduces the passing rate for sure but it ensures at least some measure of "memorized" knowledge. I would also suggest mixing up the order of the questions so that they don't run in order with the order of the study material. This again accomplishes some of what my first point was all about. I greatly appreciate the fact that you guys strive to make these certifications affordable but would be a little hesitant to hire a trainer with only these certifications. They do make for great continuing ed and for doing this in a much more economic fashion than many providers out there which is probably the FiTour niche in many ways anyway. Thanks and very solid product. Some typos throughout where words are cut off at bottom of pages. The body comp sites for men seem to be impossible to see and the model appears to have a touch of gynecomastia ( sorry but I've been around a lot of fitness models and bodybuilders over the years ). I'm also not sure if the body fat equations in the booklet are clear enough or perhaps innaccurate. Please don't display this review; some might take it negatively and I wouldn't want that at all. You guys serve a very necessary part of our industry.
Yoga Certification Primary

The certification was good. Just a few suggestions: focus the exam more on the poses and check your spelling for the exam. I found a number of misspellings that caused me some confusion on poses and vocabulary.
Good information, inexpensive certification

If you have limited exposure to yoga, this is probably not the certification for you. I've had exposure and had a very helpful mentor throughout my studying/training, which helped greatly. The study guide is somewhat disjointed, but has everything I needed for gym yoga.

I had questions on some of the questions asked in the test and submitted an inquiry. I hope this helps in increasing my percentage of correct answers.

Just one thing, your mind should "wAnder" on wonder on the candle.

Material in the book/dvd is useful and practical. The exam reflects the material presented in the book/dvd.

A few of the statements regarding running I do not agree with. The overall experience was a good one.
