Since founding APPI in 2000 ago we have been committed to developing a world leading education program that is strongly supported by the latest research based evidence. APPI is committed to ensuring that its dedicated team of employees, presenters, and members all strive to achieve their goals through this great program.

As of 2009 the ‘Modified Pilates Rehabilitation Program’ is taught across nine countries, with over 2000 allied health professionals beginning their training every year. We are proud to have been involved with all levels of rehabilitation and allied health including – The NHS, the British Military, The British Bobsliegh Association, Premier League football clubs including Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Charlton Athletic and many more.

When we established APPI in 2000, we never imagined the program would become a world leader in its field. As a result of this unparalleled success we now commit to ensuring that the program is continually updated every chance we get. At least, once a year our educational board and presenters meet to review the entire program and ensure we are teaching the latest in scientific evidence. Our educational board meets quarterly to review specific courses, and reply to any feedback we gain from our valued clients. We continually evolve into new areas of teaching stability retraining through the Pilates method.

We are very proud to be able to deliver to our graduates a complete new career. We have seen countless graduates go on to establish thriving businesses and have been happy to mentor them in this process. We are now consulting on many boards at both industry and government level ensuring that APPI is uniquely positioned to influence the opportunities for all our graduates and members.

With such an expansive curriculum our graduates are in high demand throughout the world. We are very proud to have literally ‘changed peoples careers’ through our innovative and unique approach to Pilates based rehabilitation.

We look forward to a future whereby the Modified Pilates Rehabilitation Program is setting standards in health care rehabilitation throughout the world. We will never stop working, never stop learning, and we hope you enjoy this journey with us.
