Counting from the age of exercise Pilates is on the younger side. Pilates was first created by Josef Pilates in the early 90's. In the beginning he created Pilates to help strengthen those who were injured laying in hospital beds. From there dancers were the first to take to the routine and concept of Pilates. Today it seems that everyone has heard of it, tried it or is participating in Pilates.
A significant amount of research through the years has been done to help others understand the benefits of incorporating Pilates into a regular routine. There are many benefits from exercise but what can Pilates provide you. Well in this research it has been proven by just adding Pilates twice a week in an average persons work out week that you will see a difference in flexibility and abdominal and upper body muscular endurance. When the average person includes Pilates 1 hour a day 5 days a week then there has proven to be significiant waist circumference reduction and BMI percentile reduction.
