One method of exercise that you might think about trying, if you have not already attempted it, is Pilates, which aims to boost core strength, flexibility, body awareness, posture, body condition, muscle strength and stability by employing special apparatus, from simple mats to quite complex equipment.

Just What is Pilates?: Pilates was developed by a physical trainer from Germany, called Joseph Pilates in the first half of the Twentieth Century, and was a system of exercise which he termed "Contrology". Pilates became especially popular in the latter part of the 20th Century and is widely practiced globally, although is more ubiquitous in countries like Canada, the United States, and the UK.

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

In addition to the various kinds of apparatus you will find a correspondingly confusing variety of Pilates methodologies on offer in Guildford, each with its specific instructors and followers. Numbered among the various kinds of Pilates styles are Clinical Pilates (aimed towards a specific injury), Contemporary Studio Pilates (done in fully equipped studios with trained instructors), Classical Pilates (sticking rigidly to the techniques of Joseph Pilates), Fletcher Pilates (combining dance and movement with traditional exercises), Stott Pilates (to restore the natural shape of the spine), Mat Pilates (still the most favoured), Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Powerhouse Pilates (strengthening and stretching the muscles while not adding bulk) and other less well known ones.

Many of those came into being due to the fact that Joseph Pilates failed to trademark his exercise system and his various students and followers ultimately went off and formulated their own particular variants of Pilates, some went on to become leaders in their field and include the likes of Bruce King, Robert Fitzgerald, Lolita San Miguel, Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Bob Seed, Eve Gentry, Kathy Grant, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Jay Grimes, Maja Wollman, Carola Treir (the first to open her own studio), Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph), Romana Kryzanowska, Mary Bowen and others, these became known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first up-to-date book on Pilates was printed in nineteen eighty and written by Gail Eisen and Frank Philip Friedman, this guide outlines 6 key concepts of Pilates, breathing, concentration, centre, control, precision and flow and these six principles have been mainly put into practice by present day Pilates instructors.
