One form of exercise that you might look at trying out, if you've not previously attempted it, is Pilates, which was designed to increase posture, core strength, body condition, flexibility, mental awareness, muscle strength and balance through the use of certain apparatus, from readily available mats to much more complex equipment.

What is Pilates?: Pilates was invented by a physical trainer from Germany, called Joseph Pilates in the first part of the 20th Century, and was an exercise technique that he called "Contrology". Pilates became extremely popular at the end of the 20th Century and is widely practiced all over the world, although is more prevalent in places like the UK, Canada and the United States.

Joseph Pilates produced many pieces of equipment on which to practice his exercise techniques, initially with a plain mat (still the most favoured today) and advancing to apparatus which he named the Ladder Barrel, the Cadillac, the Spine Corrector, the High "Electric" Chair, the Wunda Chair, the Reformer and the Pedi-Pole.

Together with the various kinds of apparatus you will discover there are a correspondingly baffling variety of Pilates methodologies offered in Langridgeford, each one with its specific instructors and followers. Among the various forms of Pilates styles are Clinical Pilates (aimed at a specific injury), Classical Pilates (sticking closely to the methods of Joseph Pilates), Contemporary Studio Pilates (done in properly equipped studios with professional instructors), Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural curves of the spine), Group Reformer Pilates (which just uses "The Reformer"), Mat Pilates (still the most widely practiced), Fletcher Pilates (combining dance and movement with traditional techniques), Power Pilates (stretching and strengthening muscles while not adding bulk) and other less popular ones.

Many of these were developed because Joseph Pilates failed to trademark his exercise program and his many students and followers then went off and created their own personal adaptations of the program, some went on to become frontrunners in their field and include the likes of Kathy Grant, Carola Treir (the 1st to open up her own Pilates studio), Eve Gentry, Bob Seed, Mary Bowen, Romana Kryzanowska, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Bruce King, Maja Wollman, Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph), Robert Fitzgerald, Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Lolita San Miguel, Jay Grimes and others, these were known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first contemporary book on Pilates was released in 1980 and authored by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this publication sets out six fundamental principles of Pilates, breathing, concentration, control, precision, centre and flow and those six principles have been fundamentally followed by present day Pilates instructors.
