The Pilates Method is a physical fitness system that was urbanized in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates. Joseph Pilates called the method The Art of Ontology, which refers to the way the method encourages the use of the mind to control the muscles. It is an exercise program that focuses on the core postural muscles that help keep the body balanced and are necessary to providing support for the spine. In particular, Pilates exercises teach awareness of neutral arrangement of the spine and strengthening the deep postural muscles that support this alignment, which are important to help alleviate and prevent back pain.

      In World War I, Joseph Pilates served as a medic for the captured German forces locked up in Britain. He was investigating ways that soldiers could rehabilitate themselves while bed-ridden. Thus the creation of a series of movements that could be done in this position was createtrol, precision, breathing, and flowing movement (the Pilates Principles) that result in increased flexibility, strength, muscle tone, body awareness, energy, and improved mental meditation.

d. The Pilates Cadillac is based off an old hospital bed.Instead of performing many repetitions of each exercise, Pilates preferred fewer, more precise movements, requiring control and form. He designed more than 500 specific exercises.

      The most frequent form, called "mat work," involves a series of callisthenic motions performed without weight or apparatus on a padded mat. He believed that mental health and physical health were necessary to one another. Pilates created what is claimed to be a method of total body conditioning that emphasizes proper alignment, centering, concentration, con

      Joseph Pilates also designed five major pieces of unique exercise equipment that he claimed should be used for best results. Although the two components are often taught separately now, the method was always meant to combine both mat work and equipment exercises. A recent development is gravity Pilates. In all forms, the "powerhouse" (abdomen, lower back, and buttocks) is supported and strengthened, enabling the rest of the body to move freely.

      Joseph Pilates practitioners use their own bodies as "weights" in training, to build strength, and flexibility this is under attack without a focus on high-powered cardiovascular exercise. Today, Pilates is used in the rehabilitation process by many physical therapists. Pilates is an old move toward to movement re-education that is becoming popular in the field of fitness and rehabilitation. The Pilates environment can be used as an assistive situation that optimizes the acquisition of movement with a reduction of destructive forces and can be used to progress individuals through more challenging movements that represent their day-to-day activities.

      Research and theories in motor learning, biomechanics, and musculoskeletal physiology help support the phenomena experienced by many Pilates-based practitioners; however, the Pilates-based approach needs to be subjected to the rigors of investigate to better evaluate its efficacy in the field of rehabilitation.In recent years, many Pilates students have seen important parallels with the Alexander Technique, and the discoveries of F. Matthias Alexander. It has been used to train dancers in suppleness and physical strength. The first official Pilates Studio was opened in New York in 1926. In recent years it has become a popular fitness modality, with many stars attributing their successful weight loss and augmented muscle tone to Pilates.
