About Pilates

About Pilates

Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates (1880-1967). Born in Germany Joseph was a sickly child who suffered from rheumatic fever, asthma and rickets. Over the next 50 years he worked at regaining his health by developing an exercise system he called 'Contrology', or the study of control. The movements were geared toward emphasizing your body's core - the abdomen, obliques, lower back, inner and outer thigh, butt, and so on. For this reason, Pilates develops much of what exercisers need - strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, coordination, balance, and good posture - with a much lower chance of injury than with other forms of exercise. The discipline emphasizes correct form instead of many repetitions exhausting the muscles and losing form. With so many exercise variations and progressions, you will have a hard time getting bored with Pilates.
