Who was Joseph pilates? 

Joseph H. Pilates was a German emigrant who first brought his exercise method, Contrology, to the United States in 1926. His work was quickly embraced by the dance community in New York City. George Balanchine was counted among his clients. By the time of Joe's death in 1967 his method was being practiced across the country.

Today the Pilates principles can be seen in rehabilitation level movement all the way up to cross training for elite level athletes.
