Pilates Origins


Joseph Hubertus Pilates (1883 - 1967) was the inventor of the Pilates method of physical fitness.  It was Joseph Pilates' belief that "physical fitness is the first requisite to happiness."  At the outset of WWI, Joe was placed under forced internment.  It was in the camps that he refined his ideas of the Pilates regimen, which he referred to as "Controlology".  He trained other internees, including those who were bedridden. Joe took springs from their beds and used them to create resistance, wherein he began to rehabilitate the other internees.  This led to his later designs and the birth of the Pilates Cadillac, Reformer and Tower, which still function today as remarkable tools in rehabilitation and the development of true muscular balance and strength.
