Welcome to Sports Answers. What would you like to know?

Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates in Germany.

The system focuses on creating good posture and breathing. An over-simplified way to describe pilates is to think of it as a faster-moving version of yoga. Instead of holding poses as in yoga, pilates tends to do "reps" like in aerobics or calisthenics.
