Pilates was originally designed by Joseph Pilates in the 1930s and 1940s as a body conditioning training method to build endurance in the legs, arms, hips, abs, and back. Two books were published my Mr. Pilates in 1934 and 1945 that formed the basis of what we know as “Pilates” today. Later, in the 1980s, the principles of Pilates were defined by Gail Eisen and Philip Friedman in the book The Pilates Method of Physical and Mental Conditioning. These principles were defined as Concentration, Control, Center, Flow, Precision, and Breathing. These six principles have become widely adopted by the Pilates community.
Equipment such as Stamina AeroPilates reformers were designed with the core principles of Pilates in mind. What makes AeroPilates reformer unique (and highly effective & fun) is the integration of a rebounder. Not only does the addition of a rebound make the workout more effective by adding a cardio component, it also makes it much more engaging. This specific style of reformer has been embraced by both Pilates professionals and enthusiasts.
