Who, Why, and How?
Pilates is not just for middle aged women in colour coordinated Lorna Jane outfits with a latte date to boot (skim milk only thanks). Pilates can be performed by both men and women, of any age, from any level of exercise tolerance or background.
The Pilates method was founded by Joseph Pilates in 1925. He himself was a sickly child who was determined to overcome his weak state. He went on to experiment and train in yoga, gymnastics, skiing, self defence, dance, circus and weight training.
