Just What is Pilates?: Pilates was invented by a gymnast and physical trainer from Germany, called Joseph Pilates in the first half of the Twentieth Century, and was a method of exercise that he called "Contrology".

Joseph Pilates introduced certain pieces of equipment for students to practice his workouts, starting with a simple mat (still most favoured today) and progressing to apparatus that he called the High "Electric" Chair, the Cadillac, the Reformer, the Ladder Barrel, the Spine Corrector, the Wunda Chair and the Pedi-Pole.

As well as the different types of Pilates equipment you will find there are an equally mystifying assortment of Pilates methodologies offered in Barnsley, each one with its specific instructors and followers. Numbered amongst the various forms of Pilates styles are Group Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Contemporary Studio Pilates (practiced in properly equipped studios with skillful instructors), Mat Pilates (still the most widely practiced), Stott Pilates (to restore the natural curvature of the spine), Powerhouse Pilates (stretching and strengthening muscles while not adding bulk), Fletcher Pilates (integrating movement and dance with traditional techniques), Classical Pilates (sticking rigidly to the techniques of Joseph Pilates), Clinical Pilates (aimed at a specific injury) and other more obscure ones.

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

The first contemporary book on Pilates was released the early 1980's and authored by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this publication describes 6 primary concepts of Pilates, control, concentration, centre, precision, breathing and flow and these six principles have been generally followed by modern day Pilates instructors.
