Joseph Pilates 1883 - 1967
It all started when...
A young and sickly Joseph Pilates (Joe) with rickets and rheumatic fever was inspired to heal his own maladies. He read anatomy books, studied ancient Greek wrestling, gymnastics and boxing. He was also fascinated by nature and the out doors - he watched and studied the movement of animals - cats were his favourite. From these roots grew his lifelong devotion to training himself and others to have complete command of their mind and body. Over the years he designed and built equipment to help achieve this. Part of Joe's genius was creating individually tailored work that's good for everybody.
