The author of this fitness direction is Joseph Hubert Pilates. He was born in the year 1883 in a small town located near Düsseldorf in Germany. The boy was weak, suffered from rheumatic fever, asthma and other ailments.

However, thanks to his own perseverance and his love of sports, he managed to overcome all his illnesses, became a professional athlete and taught physical education.

Many women begin to feel the beneficial effects of Pilates classes after three to four weeks of regular exercise. Of course, a lot is individual and will depend on how often you practice.

Pilates which I am inviting you to try with me does not need many equipment. Only a few light weight dumbels, yoga mat and some gimmick ball or Fitness balls.
You can choose your Pilates styles below:
1. Power Pilates
- this is a workout with some light equipment like dumbels . Power pilates can only be started by sufficiently trained people who have been practicing for more than one month.

2. Stretching.
- This type of activity does not bring much benefit in the field of weight loss, but it is mandatory for people who want to consolidate the result and have a flexible slim body.

3. Pilates Ball.
- Classes are conducted using a large gymnastic ball. Allows you to develop not only flexibility, but also learn to keep balance.

4. Classic.
- This sub-catagory is suitable for everyone and allow people of any ages and any level of training experience. Classes need just yoga mat.
Training can be done at indoor or outdoor places.
