Pilates is a physical fitness system that includes exercises to improve flexibility, strength, and posture. German-born Joseph Pilates developed Pilates in the early 20th century.
Today, people of all ages and fitness levels practice Pilates to improve their health and well-being. The low-impact exercises can be performed without strain on the joints, making Pilates an ideal activity for people with injuries or chronic pain.
Pilates can improve posture, alleviate back pain, increase flexibility and muscle strength, and enhance mental well-being.
