Exactly What is Pilates?: Pilates was created by a gymnast and physical trainer from Germany, named Joseph Pilates during the first half of the 20th Century, and is a system of exercise that he called "Contrology". Pilates became very popular in the latter part of the 20th Century and is widely practiced around the world, though more prevalent in regions such as Canada, the United States, and Great Britain.

Joseph Pilates introduced certain pieces of apparatus on which to practice his exercise movements, at first with a basic mat (still the most favoured today) and advancing to apparatus that he called the Wunda Chair, the Reformer, the Spine Corrector, the Cadillac, the Ladder Barrel, the High "Electric" Chair and the Pedi-Pole.

As well as the different designs of Pilates equipment you will discover a correspondingly confusing variety of Pilates methodologies on offer in Linton, each one with its particular instructors and followers. Amongst the numerous forms of Pilates styles are Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural curvature of the spine), Contemporary Studio Pilates (practiced in fully equipped studios with trained instructors), Powerhouse Pilates (strengthening and stretching the muscles without adding bulk), Mat Pilates (still the most widely practiced), Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Fletcher Pilates (integrating movement and dance with traditional techniques), Classical Pilates (adhering rigidly to the methods of Joseph Pilates), Clinical Pilates (aimed at a specific injury) and other more obscure ones.

Some of these came about because Joseph Pilates never trademarked his exercise program and his numerous students and followers ultimately went off and developed their own personal adaptations of the program, some later became giants in their field and include among them the likes of Robert Fitzgerald, Kathy Grant, Maja Wollman, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph), Eve Gentry, Romana Kryzanowska, Carola Treir (the 1st to open her own Pilates studio), Mary Pilates (the niece of Joseph Pilates), Lolita San Miguel, Mary Bowen, Bob Seed, Bruce King, Jay Grimes and others, these were known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern day book on Pilates was printed the early 1980's and was penned by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this guide describes six major concepts of Pilates, breathing, precision, control, centre, concentration and flow and those 6 principles have been generally implemented by modern day Pilates instructors.
