Abstract

Based on what we know today, Joseph Pilates (Fig. 2.1) lived an exciting and – at least for the first 40 years – highly diverse life. Since the training concept he developed can be better understood in the light of its historical context, a brief overview of Pilates’s life is presented in this chapter.
