Most likely, you've heard of Pilates and seen the seemingly endless crop of pictures featuring celebrities fresh from a Pilates workout. So what is Pilates, and what sets it apart from Hollywood's numerous flavor-of-the-week exercise programs?
The Pilates method wasn't created overnight, and it wasn't created by an overzealous entrepreneur looking to start the next craze in fitness. Pilates has achieved mainstream popularity, but has been developed and studied for nearly a hundred years. Maybe Pilates is the exercise solution you've been searching for, and maybe its not, but Pilates is undoubtedly rich in history, and its principles could prove to be applicable and beneficial in your daily life.
