FIF Pilates School was ruled by Julio until 2009. In the last decade FIF Pilates School took a relevant place inside the Pilates Fitness market in Italy. Also FIF teachers are presenting in many international events. That’s why in a first stage, Move On chose FIF School for establish the basis of the academy development.
MOVE ON PILATES ACADEMY today 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, Julio Papi and his team studied how to adapt 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 will learn the complete Matwork Repertoire, and infinity of variations to approach the practice.
MOVE ON PILATES ACADEMY Team is composed by Julio Papi, 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, FIF and EFA, the European Fitness Association. Also the National Team committed itself to keep studying and updating knowledge and skills in a never ending process of self-development. All our trainers follow courses and educations in Romania and abroad. Also they are invited to international events and conferences in other countries.
With all these premises the first PILATES MATWORK INSTRUCTOR COURSE was born in autumn 2013. MOVE ON PILATES ACADEMY is one of the most active MOVE ON projects and is permanently modified and improved by our team of professionals.

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) One absence it’s enough to don’t get the final certification. Final certification will be given when all attendance is completed. 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) No assistance to one day education means that student must attend that day in future educations. If this is the case during a Basic Level Education he could not make the exam until he completes the 100% of attendance. If this is the case during an Advanced Level, he will get his certification after he completes the 100% attendance.
g) 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.
h) 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 Indian fashion pants…
i) 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.
