There was a real Joseph Pilates

Joseph Pilates was born in Germany in 1880.  He had a lifelong interest in body conditioning.  As a frail child dedicated to improving his strength, he later became an accomplished skier, diver, gymnast, and boxer.

 

Joseph Pilates went on to become a nurse in England during WWI.  During his internment, Pilates designed exercise equipment for his immobilized patients by attaching springs to hospital beds.  This system became the foundation for his style of body conditioning.  He brought this system to New York when he opened his first Pilates studio in 1926 and went on to create what is now known as The Pilates Method of Body Conditioning.

 

“After 10 sessions you will feel better, after 20 sessions you will look better and after 30 sessions you will have a new body!” – Joseph Pilates
