"Pilates: what once began as part of the war veterans rehabilitation program in World War I has become a popular way to maintain good mental and physical health. And rightly so, because Pilates has many advantages!"

Pilates is a fitness system devised by Joseph Pilates during the First World War. His hope was that his method would improve the rehabilitation program for war veterans. In Pilates, the emphasis is on those muscles that ensure the body is in the right balance and support the spine.

Pilates therefore called his method 'Contrology', because he was convinced that mental abilities were applied in his exercises to control the muscles. So: mental and physical health intertwined.
