The Pilates Method was developed by Joseph Hubertus Pilates in the early 1900’s in Europe, after helping soldiers from World War 1 regain their strength and mobility through the use of bed springs. Pilates developed his own equipment and exercise regimen from this idea of using springs that could be either resistive or assistive, thus accommodating the weakest to the burliest patient. After Joseph and his wife Clara emigrated to New York, their gym was discovered and frequented by people from the entertainment industry in order to build strength for their athletic roles and rehabilitate from injuries.
Today, the Pilates Method is considered ground-work for all serious athletes and dancers, as well as an excellent entry for those embarking on a new commitment to a full fitness lifestyle.
