Just What is Pilates?: Pilates was developed by a gymnast and physical trainer from Germany, named Joseph Pilates in the first part of the 20th Century, and is an exercise system which he termed "Contrology". Pilates became particularly popular in the latter part of the 20th Century and is practiced globally, although more widespread in nations such as the United States, the UK and Canada.

Joseph Pilates produced unique pieces of equipment on which to practice his exercise movements, at the start with a plain mat (still the most popular nowadays) and progressing to apparatus that he named the Wunda Chair, the High "Electric" Chair, the Spine Corrector, the Cadillac, the Ladder Barrel, the Reformer and the Pedi-Pole.

Combined with the various sorts of apparatus you will find an equally perplexing assortment of Pilates methodologies on offer in Perth, each with its specific instructors and aficionados. Among the various forms of Pilates styles are Contemporary Studio Pilates (carried out in fully equipped studios with qualified instructors), Classical Pilates (adhering rigidly to the methods of Joseph Pilates), Fletcher Pilates (combining movement and dance with traditional exercises), Reformer Pilates (which just uses "The Reformer"), Powerhouse Pilates (stretching and strengthening the muscles while not adding bulk), Clinical Pilates (directed at a specific injury), Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural shape of the spine), Mat Pilates (still the most favoured) and other more obscure ones.

A number of these were developed due to the fact that Joseph Pilates decided not to trademark his methods and his many followers and students eventually went off and established their own individual adaptations of Pilates, some became leaders in their field and include the likes of Kathy Grant, Maja Wollman, Bruce King, Jay Grimes, Robert Fitzgerald, Carola Treir (the first to open her own Pilates studio), Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Mary Bowen, Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Lolita San Miguel, Eve Gentry, Bob Seed, Romana Kryzanowska, Clara Pilates (Joseph's wife) and others, these were later called the "Pilates Elders".

The first contemporary book on Pilates was printed the early 1980's and was written by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this book outlines the six main concepts of Pilates, concentration, centre, breathing, precision, control and flow and these six principles have been chiefly implemented by present day Pilates instructors.
