One sort of exercise that you could have a look at trying out, if you haven't previously attempted it, is Pilates, which was developed to increase core strength, flexibility, body awareness, posture, body condition, muscle strength and your sense of balance through the use of special apparatus, from the ubiquitous mat to quite sophisticated equipment.

Exactly What is Pilates?: Pilates was invented by a German physical trainer and gymnast called Joseph Pilates in the 1920's, and is an exercise system that he referred to as "Contrology". Pilates became increasingly popular in the late 20th Century and is practiced around the globe, although more widespread in nations like the British Isles, Canada and the United States.

Joseph Pilates formulated many devices on which to practice his workout routines, at the start with a plain mat (still most used nowadays) and progressing to apparatus that he named the Cadillac, the High "Electric" Chair, the Ladder Barrel, the Reformer, the Spine Corrector, the Wunda Chair and the Pedi-Pole.

In addition to the various types of apparatus you will find there are a similarly puzzling variety of Pilates methodologies on offer in Truro, each one with its particular instructors and aficionados. Numbered amongst the many kinds of Pilates styles are Powerhouse Pilates (stretching and strengthening muscles without adding bulk), Contemporary Studio Pilates (done in fully equipped studios with experienced instructors), Clinical Pilates (directed at a specific injury), Group Reformer Pilates (using only "The Reformer"), Classical Pilates (keeping rigidly to the techniques of Joseph Pilates), Stott Pilates (for restoring the natural curves of the spine), Mat Pilates (still the most favoured), Fletcher Pilates (integrating dance and movement with traditional techniques) and other less popular ones.

Several of these came into being because Joseph Pilates didn't trademark his exercise system and his various students and followers subsequently went out and developed their own particular variants of the program, some went on to become frontrunners in their field and include the likes of Lolita San Miguel, Robert Fitzgerald, Mary Bowen, Kathy Grant, Maja Wollman, Jay Grimes, Bob Seed, Eve Gentry, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Bruce King, Romana Kryzanowska, Carola Treir (the 1st to open her own studio), Clara Pilates (Joseph's wife) and others, these were later referred to as the "Pilates Elders".

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