I completed my first Pilates Certification with Ariel in 2009 and it was that experience that made me fall in love with Pilates and gave me the determination to pursue Pilates as a Lifestyle and Career. In 2012, I opened up my own Pilates studio in Jacksonville Beach, FL with the desire to share my love and passion for Pilates with others. Ariel is a mentor to me. If you want to be the best, you have to learn from the best. I have continued my Pilates education under Ariel and have encouraged my instructors to learn from him as well. He has always made himself available to me if I have any questions regarding Pilates or if I need any business advice. He wants people to be successful! His love of Pilates is demonstrated by his willingness to make others great teachers. I have offered my clients workshops with Ariel and they have been very grateful to have had the opportunity to work with a teacher at his level. He is both passionate and knowledge about Pilates and he is everything I strive to be as a teacher and as a leader. Thank you Ariel for your encouragement and guidance!

I found Pilates over 10 years ago. After 2 years of taking I knew I wanted to become an instructor. After taking from many instructors and researching different certification programs I found Ariel. I completed my comprehensive Pilates training under the tutelage of Ariel. I have met many people in our industry and I can say I have never met anyone that is more passionate about Pilates and people. Ariel is a true inspiration and an asset to our industry. I am proud to call him my friend and mentor. (Ariel let me know if you are looking for something different or if this will work). I have talked to Kelly and Kathie and we where wondering if maybe in the near future we could come to Lake Mary for maybe a 1 day workshop with you at your studio? Let me know if you have availability in March.

The team at GHF Pilates absolutely LOVES having master instructor Ariel Hernandez as part of our extended family. Not only does Ariel enforce and teach all of the fundamental Pilates movements and techniques, but he also incorporates fun new ways to keep our program fresh and exciting. In the past year our program has almost doubled the number of classes we offer per week and our revenue has increased by 40%. I have no doubt that Ariel's passion for Pilates and for teaching has played a major role in our program's success. Ariel not only takes the time to drive to our facility and teach, but he is also available to us when we have questions or concerns about the business of Pilates itself. We are so lucky to have such a huge support system and look forward to continuing to grow together.
