"In 10 sessions, you will feel better, in 20 sessions you will look better, and in 30 sessions you will have a whole new body,"-- Joseph H. Pilates, founder of Pilates.
Joseph Pilates intended to call his method of exercise "contrology".
"Contrology is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit. Through Contrology you first purposely acquire
complete control of your own body and then through proper repetition of its exercises you gradually and progressively acquire that natural rhythm and coordination associated with all your subconscious activities."
