Pilates Instructor, Brigid DiPaolo, Becomes One of 25 PMA Certified Instructors in Ohio
HUDSON, OHIO (May 24, 2012) – LifeCenter Plus Health and Fitness Club Pilates instructor, Brigid DiPaolo, recently became certified by the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA), entering her into an elite class of Pilates instructors in the world.
“We’re very happy to have Brigid teaching at our club as one of the only 25 PMA certified instructors in Ohio,” said Jerry Lynch, co-owner of LifeCenter Plus. “She learned a lot from her extensive training and I know she is eager to help people through the benefits of Pilates.”
The PMA requires 450 hours of training and mentoring from a PMA recognized instructor. After training, DiPaolo had to pass an exam covering anatomy and accommodating many physical conditions. In comparison, basic certification does not require as much knowledge or rigorous training. She is one of only 1,500 PMA certified instructors in the world.
DiPaolo teaches Mat Pilates and Reformer Pilates. Mat Pilates centers on the continuous flow from one movement into another. Reformer Pilates concentrates on the use of a unique exercise machine that enhances movements. DiPaolo also teaches private small group and one-on-one sessions, at the club.
Pilates aims to strengthen core muscles for good posture and better support in everyday activities. It is recommended to aid in mobility, pain relief, cardio exercise, and improving sports performance.
A full list of classes is available online at www.lifecenterplus.com. Mat Pilates classes are free to members of LifeCenter Plus. Group and one-on-one Reformer Pilates rates are available for members and nonmembers. LifeCenter Plus is located at 5133 Darrow Road, Hudson, Ohio.
