Pilates is a system of exercises that use resistance and weight bearing to strengthen the body from the inside out. The goal is to create alignment, strength, and balance. A lot of people notice that their bodies become longer and leaner as a result.
But it’s more than just an exercise system. Pilates is a path to a healthy, balanced life. When Joseph Pilates developed it in the early 20th century (he called it Contrology), he promoted it as a way to improve poise, self-confidence, and vitality. Decades later, more and more people are trying Pilates and learning firsthand that Joseph Pilates was right.
Pilates is flexible. It’s great for beginners and accomplished athletes alike. It’s the ideal practice for people with injuries, weaknesses, or other considerations that have made it difficult to get in shape. Those who are already in good shape will tap into their full potential with Pilates’ time-tested exercises.
