What is Pilates?: Pilates was developed by a physical trainer and gymnast from Germany, called Joseph Pilates during the first part of the 20th Century, and was an exercise program that he termed "Contrology". Pilates became especially popular in the latter part of the 20th Century and is widely practiced around the globe, although is more widespread in countries such as Canada, the United States, and the British Isles.

Joseph Pilates introduced elaborate pieces of apparatus on which to practice his exercises, initially with a basic mat (still the most used today) and progressing to apparatus which he called the Cadillac, the Reformer, the Spine Corrector, the Ladder Barrel, the High "Electric" Chair, the Wunda Chair and the Pedi-Pole.

As well as the various kinds of apparatus you will soon realise an equally bewildering assortment of Pilates methodologies available in Cross, each one with its specific instructors and enthusiasts. Amongst the many forms of Pilates styles are Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural curves of the spine), Mat Pilates (still the most popular), Clinical Pilates (aimed at a specific injury), Group Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Contemporary Studio Pilates (carried out in properly equipped studios with skillful instructors), Powerhouse Pilates (stretching and strengthening the muscles while not adding bulk), Classical Pilates (sticking rigidly to the techniques of Joseph Pilates), Fletcher Pilates (integrating movement and dance with traditional techniques) and other less well known ones.

Some of these came into being because Joseph Pilates chose not to trademark his methods and his numerous followers and students eventually went off and conceived their own individual adaptations of Pilates, some later became giants in their field and include among them the likes of Eve Gentry, Mary Bowen, Clara Pilates (Joseph's wife), Bruce King, Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Carola Treir (the first to open her own Pilates studio), Romana Kryzanowska, Lolita San Miguel, Jay Grimes, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Bob Seed, Robert Fitzgerald, Maja Wollman, Kathy Grant and others, these were later referred to as the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern book on Pilates was published in 1980 and penned by Gail Eisen and Frank Philip Friedman, this book describes 6 main aspects of Pilates, precision, control, centre, concentration, breathing and flow and those principles have been mainly followed by today's Pilates instructors.
