Just What is Pilates?: Pilates was invented by a physical trainer and gymnast from Germany, called Joseph Pilates in the first half of the Twentieth Century, and is an exercise system that he called "Contrology". Pilates became increasingly popular at the end of the 20th Century and is widely practiced globally, though more widespread in regions such as the United States, Canada and Great Britain.

Joseph Pilates designed elaborate pieces of apparatus on which to practice his workout routines, at the start with a simple mat (still the most favoured today) and advancing to apparatus that he called the High "Electric" Chair, the Spine Corrector, the Reformer, the Wunda Chair, the Cadillac, the Ladder Barrel and the Pedi-Pole.

As well as the different designs of apparatus you will find a similarly confusing variety of Pilates methodologies on offer in Llandudno, each with its specific instructors and aficionados. Numbered among the many kinds of Pilates styles are Classical Pilates (sticking rigidly to the techniques of Joseph Pilates), Contemporary Studio Pilates (carried out in fully equipped studios with trained instructors), Fletcher Pilates (integrating dance and movement with traditional techniques), Clinical Pilates (focusing on a specific injury), Group Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Mat Pilates (still the most widely practiced), Powerhouse Pilates (strengthening and stretching the muscles while not adding bulk), Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural shape of the spine) and other less well known ones.

Most of these came about because Joseph Pilates chose not to trademark his techniques and his numerous students and followers later went off and established their own variants of the regime, some later became leaders in their field and include among them the likes of Eve Gentry, Kathy Grant, Bruce King, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Carola Treir (the 1st to open up her own Pilates studio), Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph), Robert Fitzgerald, Lolita San Miguel, Romana Kryzanowska, Maja Wollman, Mary Bowen, Bob Seed, Jay Grimes, Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice) and others, these were later referred to as the "Pilates Elders".

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