Pilates aims to strengthen the body in a balanced way, with a particular emphasis on core strength as the foundation to general fitness and wellbeing. 


Pilates was developed by German-born Joseph Pilates. He believed mental and physical health were very closely connected. His methodology was influenced by Western forms of exercise, including gymnastics, boxing, and Greco-Roman wrestling.
