Escape Pilates


While interning in England during WW1, Joseph H. Pilates became a nurse. Using hospital beds and springs he designed an exercise program for immobilized patients that worked to reawaken their bodies through movement, and their minds through conscious thoughts. This method formed the foundation for his style of total body conditioning and specialized equipment. He introduced his unique method of exercise in New York in 1926, and in no time a who’swho of the sports and entertainment world were practicing Pilates.
