What is Pilates?: Pilates was created by a physical trainer and gymnast from Germany, named Joseph Pilates in the first part of the 20th Century, and was a method of exercise that he termed "Contrology". Pilates became very popular in the late Twentieth Century and is widely practiced all over the world, although more widespread in places such as Canada, Great Britain and the United States.

Joseph Pilates produced quite a few pieces of apparatus for students to practice his workout routines, initially with a basic mat (still the most used nowadays) and advancing to apparatus that he named the Cadillac, the Reformer, the High "Electric" Chair, the Wunda Chair, the Ladder Barrel, the Spine Corrector and the Pedi-Pole.

Together with the different types of equipment are a similarly confusing assortment of Pilates methodologies offered in Glenrothes, each with its particular instructors and aficionados. Among the various kinds of Pilates styles are Mat Pilates (still the most widely practiced), Powerhouse Pilates (stretching and strengthening the muscles without adding bulk), Clinical Pilates (focusing on a specific injury), Stott Pilates (to restore the natural curvature of the spine), Fletcher Pilates (integrating dance and movement with traditional exercises), Classical Pilates (sticking closely to the techniques of Joseph Pilates), Contemporary Studio Pilates (practiced in fully equipped studios with qualified instructors), Group Reformer Pilates (which just uses "The Reformer") and other less popular ones.

Most of these came into being because Joseph Pilates chose not to trademark his techniques and his many students and followers subsequently diversified and created their own versions of Pilates, some became leaders in their field and include among them the likes of Maja Wollman, Jay Grimes, Eve Gentry, Bruce King, Bob Seed, Lolita San Miguel, Robert Fitzgerald, Mary Bowen, Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Romana Kryzanowska, Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph), Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Kathy Grant, Carola Treir (the first to open her own Pilates studio) and others, these were later called the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern book about Pilates was released in nineteen eighty and was penned by Gail Eisen and Frank Philip Friedman, this publication sets out 6 main concepts of Pilates, breathing, control, centre, concentration, precision and flow and those six principles have been largely followed by today's Pilates instructors.
