We normally associate Pilates with women. Actually, it was originally created by a man named Joseph Pilates in the 1920’s. Pilates was formerly called Contrology (“the mind controlling your body to create movement”) and was initially designed for military men as a fitness discipline before it became a favorite of dancers. We men are tight in general. We tend to prefer lifting weights which shortens and tightens our muscles. Pilates is a great neutralizer because it both strengthens and lengthens the muscles. Here we see a man over 70 years of age doing Pilates.
