Joseph Pilates believed that the modern lifestyle, bad posture, and inefficient breathing were the roots of poor health. His answer to these problems was to design a unique series of life-enhancing physical exercises that help to correct muscular imbalances and improve posture, coordination, balance, strength, and flexibility, as well as to increase breathing capacity and organ function. While interred at a German prison camp, he began refining and teaching his minimal equipment system of mat exercises that later became “Contrology.”
