Just What is Pilates?: Pilates was formulated by a German physical trainer and gymnast called Joseph Pilates in the early 20th Century, and was a system of exercise which he termed "Contrology". Pilates became particularly popular in the latter part of the Twentieth Century and is practiced across the globe, though is more popular in countries such as Great Britain, Canada and the United States.

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

Combined with the different types of apparatus you will find a similarly confusing assortment of Pilates methodologies on offer in Cross Ash, each one with its specific instructors and aficionados. Amongst the many kinds of Pilates styles are Classical Pilates (adhering rigidly to the techniques of Joseph Pilates), Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural shape of the spine), Contemporary Studio Pilates (carried out in fully equipped studios with skillful instructors), Mat Pilates (still the most widely practiced), Reformer Pilates (using only "The Reformer"), Powerhouse Pilates (stretching and strengthening the muscles without adding bulk), Clinical Pilates (focusing on a specific injury), Fletcher Pilates (incorporating movement and dance with traditional exercises) and other less popular ones.

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

The first contemporary book on Pilates was released in 1980 and was penned by Gail Eisen and Frank Philip Friedman, this publication outlines the 6 chief concepts of Pilates, concentration, breathing, centre, control, precision and flow and these six principles have been for the most part adopted by present day Pilates instructors.
