Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by a man named Joseph Pilates. The program focuses on strengthening the deep core muscles which help keep the body balanced and which are essential to providing support for the spine and the rest of the skeleton. Pilates developed and refined his method over a lifetime of intense research, practice and observation.
