Lovely social media feedback from Acorn Health on the quality of APPI tuition:

"An early start today - up at 5:30 AM to head in to London to help out my sister Mel with her APPI Health Group Pilates instructor's examination.

I'm always excited to go along to these sort of events as they give a really interesting insight into the training others go through and the skills they learn along the way- I was really impressed with the quality of the instruction and the depth of knowledge displayed. As health and fitness professionals, I think it's SO important we all understand each others' strengths and how we can work more closely together to care for our patients, so it was great to be part of it. Wishing my sister best of luck with her results which she gets in a few week's time!" 🏆
