The Future of Pilates

Just got my copy of IDEA Fit Tips, and what a nice article by Mary Monroe about Pilates!

CNBC reports that Pilates is the nation’s fastest-growing fitness activity.  An amazing 8.6 million participants!  A 450% increase since 2000.  WOW!

Even though the economy  has been a bit shaky, Pilates participation is holding strong.  What a great testament to the benefit of the work, and important value that’s being placed on maintaining whole-body health, regardless of what’s going on in the world around us.

Joseph Pilates said he was 50 years ahead of his time…  I know his spirit is looking down at all the great Pilates happening in the world with a giant smile – since the time has arrived and Pilates continues to grow and blossom, reaching more and more people with life-changing benefits for better mind-body health.
