When it comes to our world-class Studio Pilates Instructors, many of them started out as clients and decided they wanted to turn their passion for Pilates into their profession, and that’s exactly what Sarah Czarnuch did. The 30-year-old model and journalist fell in love with reformer Pilates 4 years ago and had toyed with the idea of completing her instructor training ever since. In 2022, she decided to take the leap and completed her Reformer Pilates Instructor Training through Studio Pilates Education.
We took five minutes with Sarah to find out a bit more about her experience with Studio Pilates Education and what she plans to do with her new qualification.
Name: Sarah Czarnuch
Occupation: Model/ Journalist / Designer
How long have you been doing Pilates for? I took my first Pilates class just under 4 years ago and have been obsessed ever since.
What is your favorite thing about Pilates? I love that there is always a way to challenge yourself in Pilates. When you think you’ve mastered a sequence there’s always a way to level up.
Has Pilates helped you overcome any major hurdles or obstacles in your life? I used to be a cardio girl and train with a lot of high impact exercises. Pilates has taught me how to move and strengthen my body without putting it under too much stress. I now no longer get injured and have noticed my flexibility improve.
What was the catalyst that inspired you to undertake your instructor training? I initially toyed with the idea during lockdown and thought it would be a great idea as a long term career. It’s also really helped to improve my own practice.
How did you find the process of the training? I loved it, while I find online training a little challenging the modules were set out so clearly that it was a breeze. Then the face to face training was where it all really came together, I definitely noticed my confidence improve after the first day.
What was your biggest takeaway from the course? To get your client moving. I’m a perfectionist by nature so was initially focused on getting every single cue perfect, but with the guidance of studio Pilates I’ve learned how to relax and really enjoy instructing.
Do you have plans to start instructing? Absolutely! This is a career path I really see myself pursuing in the future, maybe even one day having my own studio. Time will tell…
What would you say to anyone looking to do a course through Studio Pilates Education? Absolutely do it, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I had zero experience in the health and fitness industry prior. However I was an enthusiastic participant, if you’re motivated and eager to learn then I could not recommend Studio Pilates more highly.
