Joseph Pilates

The Pilates system itself was named after Joseph Pilates who, back in the early 1900’s, created a physical exercise system called Contrology. The Contrology regime consisted of 34 exercises that were designed to tone and condition the whole body. Today Pilates has become a world wide phenomenon and is recommended by physiotherapists, osteopaths and other healthcare specialists.
