Happy 131st Birthday Joseph Pilates

Joseph Pilates turned 131 years old today, born Dec 9, 1883. He was a sickly child, with rickets and poor muscle tone.He was bullied alot. He admired the Greeks and Romans for their physical and spiritual vigour, and he set out to develop exercises that work the mind and the body simultaneously. By age 14, he was a model for anatomy books! His legacy of strength, tone, endurance, and mind-body passion lives on today!
