Joseph Pilates developed some rather strange pieces of equipment on which to practice his workout routines, initially with a basic mat (still the most used nowadays) and moving on to apparatus which he named the Spine Corrector, the Reformer, the High "Electric" Chair, the Ladder Barrel, the Wunda Chair, the Cadillac and the Pedi-Pole.

Together with the various sorts of equipment you will soon realise a similarly confusing assortment of Pilates methodologies available in Tunstall, each one with its specific instructors and enthusiasts. Numbered among the many kinds of Pilates styles are Mat Pilates (still the most popular), Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural curves of the spine), Clinical Pilates (focusing on a specific injury), Group Reformer Pilates (only using "The Reformer"), Fletcher Pilates (combining movement and dance with traditional techniques), Contemporary Studio Pilates (practiced in properly equipped studios with skilled instructors), Powerhouse Pilates (stretching and strengthening muscles without adding bulk), Classical Pilates (sticking closely to the techniques of Joseph Pilates) and others.

Many of those came into being due to the fact that Joseph Pilates failed to trademark his exercise system and his many followers and students consequently went off and established their own individual variants of Pilates, some later became giants in their field and include the likes of Mary Pilates (the niece of Joseph Pilates), Kathy Grant, Mary Bowen, Romana Kryzanowska, Robert Fitzgerald, Jay Grimes, Carola Treir (the 1st to open up her own Pilates studio), Bruce King, Eve Gentry, Maja Wollman, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph), Bob Seed, Lolita San Miguel and others, these were later to be referred to as the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern book about Pilates was published in nineteen eighty and authored by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this publication talks about the 6 main aspects of Pilates, concentration, precision, control, breathing, centre and flow and those six principles have been mainly implemented by today's Pilates instructors.
