Just What is Pilates?: Pilates was invented by a German physical trainer called Joseph Pilates during the first half of the Twentieth Century, and was an exercise system which he named "Contrology". Pilates became increasingly popular in the latter part of the 20th Century and is widely practiced globally, although is more ubiquitous in countries like the UK, Canada and the United States.

Joseph Pilates invented particular pieces of equipment for individuals to practice his exercise routines, starting with a plain mat (still most used at present) and moving on to apparatus that he called the High "Electric" Chair, the Spine Corrector, the Cadillac, the Wunda Chair, the Ladder Barrel, the Reformer and the Pedi-Pole.

Along with the various kinds of apparatus are a similarly perplexing assortment of Pilates methodologies on offer in Taunton, each with its own instructors and enthusiasts. Numbered amongst the many forms of Pilates styles are Group Reformer Pilates (using only "The Reformer"), Fletcher Pilates (combining movement and dance with traditional techniques), Contemporary Studio Pilates (done in fully equipped studios with skillful instructors), Classical Pilates (adhering rigidly to the methods of Joseph Pilates), Clinical Pilates (directed at a specific injury), Powerhouse Pilates (strengthening and stretching muscles without adding bulk), Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural curvature of the spine), Mat Pilates (still the most favoured) and other less popular ones.

A number of these came into being due to the fact that Joseph Pilates never trademarked his exercise program and his many followers and students eventually went off and formulated their own particular variations of the regimen, some went on to become frontrunners in their field and include among them the likes of Jay Grimes, Mary Pilates (the niece of Joseph Pilates), Bruce King, Lolita San Miguel, Carola Treir (the 1st to open her own Pilates studio), Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Maja Wollman, Romana Kryzanowska, Bob Seed, Kathy Grant, Robert Fitzgerald, Eve Gentry, Mary Bowen, Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph) and others, these were known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first contemporary book on Pilates was released the early 1980's and penned by Gail Eisen and Frank Philip Friedman, this guide talks about the six primary principles of Pilates, precision, concentration, centre, breathing, control and flow and those 6 principles have been mainly implemented by present day Pilates instructors.
