Joseph Pilates History

The Pilates method was developed by the late Joseph Pilates, born 1880 in Germany. He was a keen sportsman who developed talents in sports as varied as diving, gymnastics and boxing. He studied many different disciplines and, drawing from each of them, formulated a system that worked for his own body - this became known as the Pilates method. After moving to New York in the 1920's he has established his first Pilates studio in New York City. The Pilates Method is an exercise system focused on building strength without adding bulk, balancing that strength with flexibility and achieving the perfect harmony between mind and body.
