HISTORY OF PILATES



Pilates is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise using a floor mat or a variety of equipment. It evolved from the principles of Joseph Pilates and can dramatically transform the way your body looks, feels and performs. Pilates builds strength without excess bulk while creating a sleek, toned body with a flat abdomen.

It is a safe, sensible exercise system that will help you look and feel your very best. It teaches body awareness, proper breathing, strong and supple core strength, good posture and easy, graceful movement. Pilates also improves flexibility, agility and economy of motion. It can even help alleviate back pain.

No matter what your age or condition, it will work for you, but don’t just take our word for it. In 2013 U.S. alone nearly 11 million people participated in Pilates – a staggering 550% increase from 2000.
