Positive Action Pilates has been involved in both the Fitness and Pilates industries for over 30 years as Coaches, Trainers, Presenters and Authors.

Marena and Chris Digby are one of the most highly qualified Pilates teams in Australia.  From a dance and sports background, they became Pilates devotees in 1988, they have since trained in several styles of Pilates including ‘Stott Pilates’, ‘Fletcher Pilates’, ‘Traditional Pilates’ and ‘Classical Pilates’.  As well as training within Australia, Marena and Chris have traveled to Los Angles and New York to study the Authentic Pilates method with several Romana trained teachers including Brooke Siler, Alycea Ungaro, Alisa Wyatt, Brett Howard and the highly respected Jay Grimes who studied with Joseph Pilates himself.  Their Pilates Teacher Training programs reflect this vast knowledge, experience and diversity.

Marena and Chris have presented consistently at Filex over the last 10 years and are one of the few teachers from Australia who have ever been invited to present at the IDEA Fitness convention in Los Angeles on the subject of Pilates. They design and assess Pilates training programs to meet with current Australian standards. They were also involved in the process of setting guidelines for the fitness industry to ensure Pilates is practiced safely in health clubs and personal training studios.

The Positive Action Pilates training is designed in a way that will give the fitness instructor / trainer both theoretical and practical tools to teach the Pilates principles for one on one personal training as well as within a group environment.

Our Pilates Certification courses have the support of leading Gyms and Fitness Centres and are considered one of the premier providers of Pilates training for the Fitness Industry.

The Positive Action Pilates, Pilates Certification Courses have been designed in consultation with leading Osteopaths and Physiotherapists.
