What is Pilates?: Pilates was introduced by a German physical trainer and gymnast named Joseph Pilates in the early Twentieth Century, and was an exercise system which he termed "Contrology". Pilates became increasingly popular in the latter part of the Twentieth Century and is practiced worldwide, although more widespread in places like the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.

Joseph Pilates designed some rather strange pieces of apparatus for students to practice his workouts, starting with a basic mat (still most used today) and moving on to apparatus which he named the High "Electric" Chair, the Ladder Barrel, the Spine Corrector, the Cadillac, the Reformer, the Wunda Chair and the Pedi-Pole.

Combined with the various kinds of Pilates equipment are an equally puzzling assortment of Pilates methodologies offered in Stoodleigh, each with its specific instructors and enthusiasts. Amongst the many kinds of Pilates styles are Reformer Pilates (which just uses "The Reformer"), Power Pilates (strengthening and stretching muscles while not adding bulk), Clinical Pilates (aimed towards a specific injury), Mat Pilates (still the most widely practiced), Contemporary Studio Pilates (done in fully equipped studios with trained instructors), Stott Pilates (for restoring the natural curvature of the spine), Fletcher Pilates (combining movement and dance with traditional techniques), Classical Pilates (adhering closely to the techniques of Joseph Pilates) and others.

Most of these came into being due to the fact that Joseph Pilates never trademarked his techniques and his numerous students and followers eventually went off and established their own specific variations of the regime, some became leaders in their field and include among them the likes of Robert Fitzgerald, Mary Bowen, Carola Treir (the 1st to open up her own Pilates studio), Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Maja Wollman, Bob Seed, Kathy Grant, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Jay Grimes, Bruce King, Eve Gentry, Lolita San Miguel, Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph), Romana Kryzanowska and others, these were later known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern book on Pilates was released the early 1980's and was written by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this guide sets out the 6 primary aspects of Pilates, precision, centre, control, concentration, breathing and flow and these six principles have been chiefly put into practice by today's Pilates instructors.
