Just What is Pilates?: Pilates was developed by a physical trainer and gymnast from Germany, called Joseph Pilates in the first half of the Twentieth Century, and is an exercise program which he named "Contrology".

Joseph Pilates designed numerous devices for students to practice his workout routines, starting with a simple mat (still most used at present) and advancing to apparatus that he named the Spine Corrector, the Wunda Chair, the Ladder Barrel, the Cadillac, the High "Electric" Chair, the Reformer and the Pedi-Pole.

In addition to the different kinds of Pilates equipment you will discover a similarly baffling variety of Pilates methodologies available in Slaley, each one with its particular instructors and aficionados. Amongst the various types of Pilates styles are Contemporary Studio Pilates (carried out in properly equipped studios with trained instructors), Power Pilates (strengthening and stretching muscles while not adding bulk), Group Reformer Pilates (using only "The Reformer"), Stott Pilates (for restoring the natural curvature of the spine), Clinical Pilates (directed at a specific injury), Classical Pilates (adhering closely to the techniques of Joseph Pilates), Mat Pilates (still the most popular), Fletcher Pilates (combining dance and movement with traditional exercises) and other less well known ones.

Many of these came about due to the fact that Joseph Pilates failed to trademark his techniques and his many followers and students eventually went out and established their own specific variants of Pilates, some became leaders in their field and include the likes of Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Mary Bowen, Kathy Grant, Lolita San Miguel, Bob Seed, Eve Gentry, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Robert Fitzgerald, Maja Wollman, Jay Grimes, Romana Kryzanowska, Bruce King, Carola Treir (the first to open her own studio), Clara Pilates (Joseph's wife) and others, these became known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first up-to-date book about Pilates was released the early 1980's and written by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this guide outlines the 6 key concepts of Pilates, control, precision, breathing, concentration, centre and flow and these principles have been for the most part followed by modern day Pilates instructors.
