Pilates, as it is known today, is a rapidly growing exercise program practiced by more than 15 million people in most major countries around the world. It was developed by German born physical trainer Joseph Hubertus Pilates (1880-1967). In 1926 he arrived in New York with his wife Clara, and the New York City ballet community embraced his exercise regime for its obvious strength and flexibility benefits.
