"Keep Calm and Pilates On" Joseph Pilates
The exercise system called Pilates was the work of Joseph Pilates back in the early 20th century. Originally known as 'Contrology' but renamed to pay homage to Joseph Pilates, its Creator, Pilates is a series of exercises performed on various equipment including Reformer and Mat. As laid out in Joseph's book 'Return to Life through Contrology' his primary philosophy is that "physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness". He designed his exercises to strengthen the core, lengthen the spine, increase body awareness, build muscle tone and gain flexibility. Pilates = Powerhouse, a body boasting strong abdominal & postural muscles to support the skeletal system.
The Pilates Reformer in case you're wondering is a piece of equipment invented by Joseph Pilates. It contains a flat bed (or carriage as it is known) which moves back and forward against resistance. This resistance comes by way of a set of springs attached to the carriage at one end of the Reformer, these springs are varying in degrees of resistance as the carriage is pulled or pushed along the frame. The Reformer also has long straps with handles that are attached to the top end of the frame. They can be pulled with arms or legs to move the carriage against the resistance. There is a myriad of exercises you can perform on the Reformer, in fact hundreds and hundreds of varying exercises. You will LOVE it!
