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

Along with the various types of apparatus you will discover there are an equally baffling variety of Pilates methodologies on offer in Medmenham, each one with its specific instructors and enthusiasts. Numbered amongst the various types of Pilates styles are Reformer Pilates (using only "The Reformer"), Clinical Pilates (focusing on a specific injury), Contemporary Studio Pilates (practiced in fully equipped studios with trained instructors), Power Pilates (strengthening and stretching muscles while not adding bulk), Mat Pilates (still the most widely practiced), Classical Pilates (adhering closely to the methods of Joseph Pilates), Fletcher Pilates (incorporating dance and movement with traditional exercises), Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural shape of the spine) and other less popular ones.

Many of these were developed due to the fact that Joseph Pilates decided not to trademark his methods and his numerous followers and students later diversified and created their own individual versions of the regime, some later became giants in their field and include among them the likes of Robert Fitzgerald, Kathy Grant, Lolita San Miguel, Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Carola Treir (the 1st to open up her own Pilates studio), Bruce King, Maja Wollman, Mary Bowen, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Bob Seed, Eve Gentry, Clara Pilates (Joseph's wife), Romana Kryzanowska, Jay Grimes and others, these were later to be named the "Pilates Elders".

The first contemporary book about Pilates was printed in 1980 and was penned by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this book sets out the 6 main principles of Pilates, centre, precision, concentration, breathing, control and flow and these principles have been generally implemented by today's Pilates instructors.
