Origins of Pilates

 

Joseph PilatesIt was Joseph Pilates, who in the 1920's developed this method thanks to his understanding of both the muscles and the skeletal system. It is this holistic approach that sets Pilates apart from many other forms of exercise.

 

Joseph Pilates was both a boxer and a self-defence instructor. Although dancers were among the first converts to the benefits of the Pilates method, it is interesting to note that the legendary German heavyweight boxer Max Schmelling was also a regular at his New York studio.
