The Pilates Method was developed by German born Joseph Pilates (1880-1967). Pilates was a sickly child which led to an interest in health and wellness at an early age. Pilates was a gymnast, boxer, and circus performer. Pilates was interned at the Isle of Man during WWI along with other German citizens. It was at the camp that he began to attach springs above the beds to exercise sick detainees. Pilates later moved to New York where he opened a fitness studio. Pilates believed that it was important for the mind to control the body. He felt that a limited number of correct movements were more important than many done incorrectly. Pilates spent his life defining his method which included the development of numerous pieces of equipment and mat exercises.
