MOVE ON PILATES ACADEMY (MPA) was born with more than 10 years of experience behind. Julio D. Papi founded FIF Pilates Academy in 2005 after years of study and dedication into the Pilates Method. FIF Pilates School was ruled by Julio until 2009 and took a relevant place inside the Pilates Fitness market in Italy. Today MOVE ON Pilates Academy has educated hundreds of instructors in Romania.
MOVE ON PILATES ACADEMY proposes the Pilates technique in a unique way, making it effective and beneficial, at personal trainer level, but also, very important, at group level. The Pilates technique was born as an individual training. Because of this, Move On team has adapted cueing, communication processes and progressions, making possible the saying "Pilates for everyone".
MOVE ON PILATE ACADEMY respects the standard technique and follows the main principles of J.H. Pilates. Instructor can learn the complete Mat Work Repertoire, and infinity of variations to approach the practice. We offer different courses that build a valid and solid Pilates background.
MOVE ON PILATES ACADEMY Team is composed by a pull of international presenters in exchange with international Pilates Academies, and a Romanian team. Our national team has been trained for months in Romania as well as abroad, in specific Pilates Training actions designed by Julio Papi. All our trainers follow courses and educations in Romania and abroad. Also they are invited to international events and conferences in other countries.

Rules are made to help students to achieve the goal: Learn the basics of the Pilates technique. Pilates method needs discipline and effort, dedication and love. With effort, dedication and love we offer this course to our students.
a) Course is taught in Romanian and English. Manuals and exams are available in Romanian and English. Some parts are taught in Romanian but most of the course is in English with translation to Romanian when needed.
b) We respect all other Pilates Schools, but we cannot validate their certifications as our working method is different. We invite all Pilates trainers already certified to join us at the complete course. We will provide with discount in the price if you present another valid Pilates Certification made before.
c) It’s mandatory to follow all weekends to get certified.
d) No assistance to one-day education means that student must attend that day in other moment or in future educations. Student will get his certification after he completes the 100% attendance. If our trainers are available, absences can be solved by attending to Pilates Personal Trainings with them.
e) Certifications of other schools will be studied in order to evaluate possible theoretical exam exemptions. But assistance to all weekends and to practical exam is mandatory in the Basic Level, as well as 100% assistance to the Advanced Level.
f) Students are supposed to have a previous practice into the Pilates Method. Basic Skills are needed. If you never practiced Pilates before try to make an intensive period of training previous to the course, especially CORE and Postural oriented. That will be helpful. You can also book your Pilates personal training sessions with some of our masters if you think is necessary.
g) Pilates is made barefoot. If you care about your hygiene you can always bring wipe towels to clean your feet after the practices. Clothes must be simple and must let the teachers appreciate the all body posture. Leg in are mandatory for the exam. Don’t come with clothes that cover all your body as big Hoodies, Extra-large T-shirts, or baggy fashion pants…
h) Filming during the classes is not allowed. But you are more than welcome to bring your cameras and record your exercises and practices during the breaks, or immediately after the practice day.
If you are searching for a serious and highly professional course, this one can suit to you. We wish you to have you in our next course and will be glad to share our knowledge with you.
