In Focus: Pilates

Joseph Pilates developed this discipline while interned in Germany in the 1910's. He trained fellow patients in hospital with springs rigged to hospital beds which gave origin to the particular equipment used in some Pilates classes.

Now a mainstream discipline, it is estimated to employ more than 11,000 people and is part of over 2,000 businesses in Australia, according to an Ibis World Report.
