Did you know...?

Did you know that the Pilates method which is a method of body conditioning involving a unique system of stretching and strengthening exercises was actually developed over 100 years ago by Joseph H. Pilates.

The Pilates method began with a small group of elite athletes and dancers in New York City and went on to become rather popular in other areas of the world, during the 1990's.

Since the 1990's, 2007 IDEA Health and Fitness Association Program and Equipment Survey found that 68% of program directors at fitness centers offered Pilates mat classes on a weekly basis, as part of their group fitness class schedule.
