Joseph Pilates created many pieces of apparatus on which to practice his exercises, in the first instance with a basic mat (still most popular today) and progressing to apparatus that he called the Cadillac, the Spine Corrector, the Ladder Barrel, the Reformer, the High "Electric" Chair, the Wunda Chair and the Pedi-Pole.

Combined with the different kinds of equipment are a similarly perplexing variety of Pilates methodologies on offer in Shipley, each one with its specific instructors and followers. Among the many forms of Pilates styles are Mat Pilates (still the most widely practiced), Stott Pilates (for restoring the natural curves of the spine), Clinical Pilates (targeting a specific injury), Contemporary Studio Pilates (carried out in properly equipped studios with trained instructors), Power Pilates (stretching and strengthening muscles without adding bulk), Fletcher Pilates (integrating dance and movement with traditional exercises), Classical Pilates (keeping rigidly to the methods of Joseph Pilates), Group Reformer Pilates (which just uses "The Reformer") and other more obscure ones.

A number of these were developed because Joseph Pilates omitted to trademark his exercise program and his many followers and students then diversified and formulated their own particular variations of the program, some went on to become leaders in their field and include the likes of Mary Bowen, Robert Fitzgerald, Lolita San Miguel, Carola Treir (the first to open her own Pilates studio), Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Kathy Grant, Bob Seed, Bruce King, Maja Wollman, Eve Gentry, Jay Grimes, Clara Pilates (Joseph's wife), Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Romana Kryzanowska and others, these were later to be named the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern day book about Pilates was printed the early 1980's and was authored by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this publication talks about six key concepts of Pilates, control, precision, breathing, concentration, centre and flow and those principles have been principally adopted by present day Pilates instructors.
