If you take a peek at a Pilates class, you might think, "Hey, these are some twisted abdominal presses." Or, "Looks like fun, that's exactly what I need!" And all those thoughts will be true.

The goal is to achieve balance, improve blood circulation, relieve stress, increase endurance. The system of stretching and strength exercises was developed more than ninety years ago by the German Joseph Pilates, who was obsessed with the idea of restoring his health and body. His personal history is compelling enough to make you attend at least one Pilates class. With a sunken chest and suffering from asthma, over time he managed to overcome his weakness and became an excellent gymnast, skier, diver, yogi and boxer. With the help of Pilates, Joe was able to maintain top physical shape even at the age of seventy. While in an English concentration camp during World War I, he used his system of exercises to help wounded soldiers recover from injuries, even while lying on their backs. In reality, Pilates borrowed from yoga, ballet dancing and gymnastics.
