Slider Course


Join the ranks of top trainers around the world who are using slider equipment to challenge their clients and develop enhanced strength and endurance. The sliders are all about combining functional training with enhanced body resisted exercises to transform your clients’ bodies and help them to achieve even better results.

In the past, the sliders have been used more in the gym setting. But in a world first, Studio Pilates is reinventing the slider through the Pilates repertoire to give you a workout like no other.

This Slider Course is one which all Pilates instructors should complete for the sheer versatility and effectiveness of the sliders. In fact, you don’t even necessarily need to purchase equipment to teach these exercises. You can even use a range of household items such as face washers or tea towels to perform the exercises! So the sliders are the ultimate versatile piece of equipment for your Pilates classes.

Not only does the slider provide an unbeatable all over body workout, it is a fantastic piece of equipment to use with injured clients such as those with back pain, neck pain, knee pain, hip pain and pregnant clients as it gives so much flexibility with the positions that you can put clients in to receive a safe and effective workout. The movement of the slider also aids in activating the deep stabilising muscles of the body and improves balance and coordination.
