What is Pilates?
Pilates, developed in the 1920s by legendary physical trainer Joseph H. Pilates, is an exercise system that focuses on improving flexibility, strength and endurance without building bulk.
It focuses on the abdomen, lower back and buttocks (the "core" or "power center") with the goal of promoting strength, muscular harmony and balance using efficient exercises based on control of the body and correct breathing.
Pilates is a conditioning program for the entire body in which all muscles are evenly developed and the overuse of specific muscle groups is avoided. The Pilates system consists of many different exercises allowing for exercises to be adjusted as you improve, so Pilates is suitable for beginners to advanced users and all ages.
