Pilates is named for its creator, Joseph Pilates, who developed the exercises in the 1920s that he called Contrology. Pilates training, is a system which biomechanically reprograms and reconnects all the movements of your arms and legs to your abdominal “core”. This will allow you to work your abdominals every time you move. Yes, even in your bed! Pilates training is used to strengthen your “core” by bringing each of your muscle groups into balance, creating a BEAUTIFUL body.
