What exactly is Pilates?
Pilates is a method of exercise that consists of low-impact flexibility and muscular strength and endurance movements. Pilates emphasizes use of the abdominals, lower back, hips and thighs. Pilates is named for its creator, Joseph Pilates, who developed the exercises in the early 1900s.
A Pilates routine typically includes 25 to 50 repetitive strength training exercises. Pilates is similar to calisthenics, such as sit-ups and pushups. In fact, some people call Pilates the ultimate form of calisthenics.

How does Pilates fit into a total fitness program?
If you’re a healthy adult, your weekly exercise routine should include:
- At least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity — or 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity
- Strength training exercises at least twice a week Pilates can be a good strength training workout, but it isn’t aerobic exercise. You’ll need to supplement it with aerobic exercises, such as brisk walking, running, biking or swimming.
