Pilates

Pilates is based on the work of Joseph Pilates (1880-1967), who created a series of 'classical' exercises that built strength without adding bulk and balanced that strength with flexibility.  The 'classical' Pilates exercises that he developed may take years to perfect and may well be beyond the capability of the average person, so Pilates teachers break those exercises down so that everyone can enjoy the benefits of Pilates whilst working safely and effectively towards the more advanced exercises.
