One method of exercise which you may have a look at trying, if you have not already done, is Pilates, which was designed to improve body condition, physical strength, posture, flexibility, core strength, body awareness and balance through the use of special apparatus, from the ubiquitous mat to rather sophisticated equipment.

What is Pilates?: Pilates was created by a German physical trainer named Joseph Pilates in the 1920's, and is an exercise technique that he termed "Contrology". Pilates became especially popular in the late Twentieth Century and is widely practiced around the globe, though more common in regions like Canada, Great Britain and the United States.

Joseph Pilates invented elaborate pieces of apparatus on which to practice his exercise routines, starting with a basic mat (still most popular at present) and progressing to apparatus that he called the High "Electric" Chair, the Cadillac, the Ladder Barrel, the Spine Corrector, the Wunda Chair, the Reformer and the Pedi-Pole.

As well as the different sorts of Pilates apparatus you will find there are a correspondingly confusing assortment of Pilates methodologies offered in Allensford, each with its specific instructors and followers. Amongst the various types of Pilates styles are Power Pilates (stretching and strengthening the muscles without adding bulk), Contemporary Studio Pilates (practiced in properly equipped studios with qualified instructors), Clinical Pilates (aimed towards a specific injury), Group Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Stott Pilates (to restore the natural curves of the spine), Classical Pilates (keeping rigidly to the techniques of Joseph Pilates), Fletcher Pilates (incorporating movement and dance with traditional exercises), Mat Pilates (still the most widely practiced) and other more obscure ones.

Many of those came about because Joseph Pilates did not trademark his exercise program and his many followers and students consequently diversified and established their own adaptations of the program, some later became giants in their field and include among them the likes of Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Bob Seed, Kathy Grant, Mary Bowen, Robert Fitzgerald, Bruce King, Jay Grimes, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Carola Treir (the first to open up her own studio), Maja Wollman, Romana Kryzanowska, Eve Gentry, Lolita San Miguel, Clara Pilates (Joseph's wife) and others, these were known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first contemporary book about Pilates was released the early 1980's and penned by Gail Eisen and Frank Philip Friedman, this book sets out six main principles of Pilates, centre, control, precision, concentration, breathing and flow and those principles have been principally adopted by present day Pilates instructors.
