Pilates Quote: Physical Perfection

It’s sad to think that when Joseph Pilates wrote this quote, exasperated at the amount of time and money people were spending in an attempt to achieve physical perfection, it was in 1934!  His frustration on this topic was penned almost 80 years ago… and it’s very safe to say that in the last eighty […]
