Pilates is a form of exercise that was developed during, and refined post, world war one by Joseph Pilates. He coined his new found exercise regime as ‘The Art of Contrology’. Initially it was performed as ballistic exercises over a large range of motion, this has since been refined to create a repertoire that is appropriate for the general population. But the principles by which it was developed still hold true. Modern day Pilates has a particular focus on deep core endurance, strength and ultimately control. This control is then challenged by a range of movements/exercises completed against resistance or body weight.
