Pilates is accessible to a wide range of people, young and old, athletic or not, sedentary or in physical therapy. It is for individuals who want to improve their strength and flexibility. Pilates aids in preventing muscle and soft tissue injury. Ultimately discovered by physical therapists and orthopaedic practitioners, Pilates was found to be an exceptionally beneficial addition to the rehabilitation of patients. A rise in the demand from a health conscious public for a safe and effective exercise system has shown a growing number of people who embrace Pilates as their primary exercise regimen.

Pilates has been a fundamental part of dancers fitness regimes throughout the world for many years, yet only recently has it become an adjunct to Olympic and professional athletes, sports teams and private fitness centres.

Throughout our everyday activities such as sitting, standing, running, playing sports, or dancing, many forms of exercise help to strengthen some muscle groups, but often leave others weaker and underdeveloped. The resulting muscular imbalance may never be noticed as such, but it can eventually become a source of fatigue, discomfort, pain and even immobility. Pilates facilitates muscular harmony and balance. People who regularly practice Pilates find that without conscious effort they improve posture, move more gracefully, sleep better, and develop firmer, sleeker and more powerful muscles.
