Joseph Pilates built various pieces of equipment for individuals to practice his workouts, at first with an ordinary mat (still most popular at present) and advancing to apparatus that he named the High "Electric" Chair, the Spine Corrector, the Wunda Chair, the Ladder Barrel, the Reformer, the Cadillac and the Pedi-Pole.

In addition to the various kinds of apparatus you will find an equally bewildering variety of Pilates methodologies offered in Shutford, each one with its own instructors and aficionados. Numbered among the numerous forms of Pilates styles are Classical Pilates (adhering closely to the methods of Joseph Pilates), Contemporary Studio Pilates (done in fully equipped studios with skillful instructors), Clinical Pilates (directed at a specific injury), Group Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Fletcher Pilates (combining movement and dance with traditional techniques), Stott Pilates (to restore the natural curves of the spine), Power Pilates (stretching and strengthening muscles while not adding bulk), Mat Pilates (still the most widely practiced) and other less well known ones.

Most of these came about because Joseph Pilates didn't trademark his methods and his numerous followers and students consequently went off and conceived their own personal adaptations of Pilates, some became leaders in their field and include the likes of Carola Treir (the 1st to open up her own studio), Maja Wollman, Eve Gentry, Kathy Grant, Robert Fitzgerald, Mary Pilates (the niece of Joseph Pilates), Mary Bowen, Jay Grimes, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Bob Seed, Lolita San Miguel, Clara Pilates (Joseph's wife), Bruce King, Romana Kryzanowska and others, these were known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern book on Pilates was published in 1980 and penned by Gail Eisen and Frank Philip Friedman, this publication outlines the six fundamental aspects of Pilates, control, breathing, concentration, centre, precision and flow and these principles have been for the most part adopted by modern day Pilates instructors.
