A High Speed Internet Connection is required to fully experience our online learning materials in the manner they were intended.

Important mobile device User Note: While it may be possible to register for and view these online programs on a small screen mobile device, WE STRONGLY DISCOURAGE THIS. Due to the smaller screen size and inconsistency of carrier coverage areas and speeds, smartphones may not allow you as a user to gain the full experience and Personal Best Pilates Instructor Academy does not intend it's online learning materials to be accessed in this manner

For the best experience, a high speed internet connection is highly recommended. Lower bandwidth connections may still allow you to register for and access our online videos and download any included documents, but you may experience buffering or extended load times. Many internet providers (ISPs) supply connection speed information to their customers on their company websites. Please consult your ISPs' technical specs or help resources to ensure your connection speed is sufficient prior to purchasing materials.

Please Note: At times, connection speeds can increase or decrease due to the volume of traffic on the internet and the ability of ISP servers to handle the amount of traffic they are receiving or other factors may cause connection speeds to fluctuate. It's recommended that you verify your current connection speed, before you begin an online course, using an online speed test (which are provided free of cost to you).
