Joseph Pilates named his fitness program “Contrology”. Pilates continued to make innovative and appropriate improvements in his methodology, until his death. After realizing the fact that these exercises can increase mental well-being and fitness levels of a normal individual, Pilates entered the mainstream around the world as an efficient and practicable work out type. Right after its development, Pilates was not very famous among the people, and it didn’t get the due importance until 21st century. Pilates gained popularity in the early years of the 21st century, especially in United States. Now many people from all over the world are practicing Pilates, either individually or at a Pilates Centre.
