"A few well-designed movements, properly performed in a balanced sequence, are worth hours of doing sloppy calisthenics or forced contortion."
 
-Joseph H. Pilates, creator

 
The Pilates system of exercise was developed in the 1920s, by creator, Joseph H. Pilates. 

Originally dubbed "Contrology" by Pilates, this method of exercise is designed to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body. The focus is on improving health and vitality through better posture, body mechanics, correct breathing, and spinal flexibility. 

Over 90 years ago, Pilates engineered the equipment, specifications, and tuning required to teach the exercises now referred to as "Pilates."


There is no question that the original approach can work wonders when facilitated by a qualified instructor who understands how to tailor a Pilates workout suited to your body and capabilities. When executed correctly, the Pilates method of exercise is proven to make you look, feel and move better!


There is only one type of Pilates...the type that originated from the instruction of Joseph and Clara Pilates. There are other varieties out there--fusions and combinations of exercises done on Pilates apparatus, so the term Pilates gets thrown about a bit. At JWinters Pilates, the classical version is taught on classical apparatus.
