FUSION REFORMER TEACHER TRAINING
We are breaking the mould with Reformer Pilates Teacher Training, and developing a new breed of teachers! This course isn't just for those who want to become a Reformer Pilates teacher, but anyone with a keen interest in how the body works, or just wants to upskill their current knowledge base.
Fusing traditional Joseph Pilates’ principles and modern dynamic functional exercises, you will leave the course with high-quality coaching techniques and delivery methods that will not only empower you to create exceptional Reformer Pilates classes but also exceed industry expectations and standards.
Fusion’s comprehensive course is a thorough and balanced blend of theory, observation, and practical experience, designed and led by Sam Burch, Head Of Pilates at ReDefined.
All our training is endorsed by REPs NZ and qualifies for REPS CPD points. You will get 20 REPs NZ Accredited CPD points for each level completed. Fusion graduates will be able to travel overseas with an internationally recognised Reformer Pilates education.
This is the first course of its kind offered in New Zealand. There is no course that teaches both Classical and Dynamic Reformer Pilates. As Joseph Pilates once said, “Change Happens Through Movement, and Movement Heals".
From our Course Instructor – Sam Burch:
“For me movement is everything, it clears my mind, makes me focused, and simply brings me joy.
I have enjoyed giving a wide variety of sports and different types of exercise a go over the years taking particular enjoyment in functional fitness in the gym environment.
In my later years, I have been more drawn to using exercise and movement to achieve body balance and quality and longevity of life. When I became a certified fitness instructor and personal trainer
I wasn't sure exactly what direction I was heading.
It was when a colleague passed my name to a Dynamic Reformer Pilates studio that my world opened and I knew exactly where I wanted to go. After being trained in this modern Dynamic Reformer Pilates style and taking these fitness classes for a couple of years I was curious to know where it all started. When the opportunity came to learn classical Pilates I naturally jumped at it.
Now I bring the two modalities together to achieve the very best for the body. My specialty is Pilates,
my passion is using Pilates and movement to give quality and longevity of life”
Upon completing the Fusion course, you will be able to:
Teach Reformer Pilates exercises, understanding the exercises theoretically and physically
Verbalise exercises with versatility
Correct postures, principles, and exercises effectively and safely
Modify exercises for a given client and to teach workouts specific to a client's needs
Develop the knowledge and understanding which are needed to safely teach and adjust reformer Pilates classes

Fusion Teacher Training Course is divided into 2 levels and each level consists of a 30-hour, 4-day workshop. For both levels, trainees will receive a Fusion Teacher Training manual, containing a detailed analysis of each exercise required, complete with teaching tips. Upon completion, you will become an effective, safe, hands-on instructor and will know how to confidently modify and teach Reformer Pilates to any client.
