Joseph Pilates built elaborate devices on which to practice his exercises, at first with an ordinary mat (still the most popular today) and progressing to apparatus that he named the High "Electric" Chair, the Wunda Chair, the Ladder Barrel, the Spine Corrector, the Cadillac, the Reformer and the Pedi-Pole.

Along with the various kinds of equipment you will soon realise a similarly puzzling variety of Pilates methodologies available in Swindon, each with its own instructors and followers. Amongst the many forms of Pilates styles are Powerhouse Pilates (stretching and strengthening the muscles while not adding bulk), Fletcher Pilates (combining movement and dance with traditional exercises), Group Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Contemporary Studio Pilates (carried out in fully equipped studios with trained instructors), Clinical Pilates (focusing on a specific injury), Classical Pilates (adhering closely to the methods of Joseph Pilates), Mat Pilates (still the most favoured), Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural shape of the spine) and other more obscure ones.

Most of these were developed due to the fact that Joseph Pilates decided not to trademark his exercise system and his many students and followers eventually went off and formulated their own specific versions of Pilates, some later became leaders in their field and include among them the likes of Eve Gentry, Mary Pilates (the niece of Joseph Pilates), Mary Bowen, Lolita San Miguel, Carola Treir (the 1st to open her own Pilates studio), Bob Seed, Robert Fitzgerald, Romana Kryzanowska, Maja Wollman, Kathy Grant, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Jay Grimes, Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph), Bruce King and others, these were later known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern book about Pilates was printed in nineteen eighty and authored by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this publication talks about 6 chief concepts of Pilates, control, centre, precision, breathing, concentration and flow and these principles have been mainly used by today's Pilates instructors.
