"I've done a lot of fitness certifications and RBTT is the most comprehensive, well-organized Pilates certification program in Austin or anywhere. It was the best investment I have made - both in terms of my own movement skill and my career."
- Lauren Badell, RedBird Teacher
"RBTT was an amazing experience for me. Lee and Elisabeth’s approach comes with great knowledge, passion, care, and expertise. The training is thorough. The trainers are supportive and accessible. I learned from the best and I wouldn't give up the experience for anything! Getting a Pilates certification launched my career."
- Claire VanValkenburgh, RedBird Teacher

The RedBird Teacher Training Program (RBTT) is a 10-month program spread across 5 weekends. Each weekend includes detailed study in the anatomy of joint structure as well as extensive review of the skeletal and muscular systems.
The Pilates Mat and Apparatus repertoire is studied as follows:
Weekend One – Contemporary Mat
Weekend Two – Continuation of Mat / Mid Term written and practical
Weekend Three – Reformer
Weekend Four – Cadillac / Tower
Weekend Five - Wunda/Exo Chair, Ladder Barrel and Step-Ladder
RedBird prepares students to take the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) Pilates certification exam to nationally certify our teachers. PMA requires 450 hours in observation, teaching and class participation prior to testing for Pilates certification. All hours may be accrued at RedBird. RBTT includes a free membership to RedBird for the 10-month program ($2,110 savings) which saves students a great deal of money that would be spent in paying studios for observation and practice time. RBTT includes a 10-week Apparatus Series, which assists students in learning all the equipment ($375 value). It also includes eight team teach hours for Pilates mat and a 10-week apparatus team teach opportunity.
The weekend intensive program includes all weekends of study, practical and written mid-term and final, and 10 Pilates mat classes. Both programs include a lecture manual and four exercise workbooks containing all the Pilates repertoire. We recommend a minimum of 20 Pilates mat and equipment classes prior to embarking on Pilates certification.

Although the RedBird philosophy is to hire from within to insure that all our teachers represent the RedBird method, RBTT is committed to producing excellent, employable teachers for our community and beyond. RB teachers have gone on to create meaningful employment throughout Austin, in other states and even abroad. Participating in the RBTT program does not ensure employment as a RedBird instructor, but completing the RBTT is a requirement to be hired at RedBird.
