Pilates At A Glance

More than seventy years after its introduction, the Pilates Method of Body Conditioning has become one of the most popular forms of fitness training available.
Not only has the professional dance community embraced it as the premier method of core-strength training, but athletes and celebrities have used it over the decades to develop the svelte, powerful bodies that their professions demand.
Despite this somewhat glamorous background, Pilates training continues to be one of the fastest growing exercise methods for all walks of life — from pre-teens to octenegarians, Pilates is embraced not only as a form of specialized training and physical rehabilitation, but as a deeply effective method of achieve health and well-being.
Simply put, Pilates feels good. As Joseph Pilates himself said “You will feel better in 10 sessions, look better in 20 sessions, and have a completely new body in 30 sessions.”
Pilates exercises were primarily developed to align, lengthen and strengthen. Movements are generally not “aerobic” in nature, particularly in the beginning. Instead, Pilates exercises vary in dynamic depending on the exercise.
Control and precision are emphasized, repetitions are fewer and focus on isolating muscle groups and developing core strength. Joseph Pilates developed hundreds of exercises, most of which can be modified to suit various body types and injuries.
