Pilates Background Information
Joseph Pilates was born in 1880 in Germany. As a child he was unhealthy, but through hard work he became accomplished in several sports, such as boxing, diving and gymnastics. Having moved to England in 1912, Joe was interned as an enemy alien at the outbreak of World War I in 1914 along with other German nationals. During his internment on the Isle of Mann, Joe worked in the camp hospital initially as an orderly. During this time he progressively developed his system of exercise. In the hospital he used bedsprings and hospital bed frames to rig strengthening devices that were the precursors to later equipment designs. The bedridden injured soldiers were strengthened with these devices, speeding their recovery. He was eventually put in charge of camp fitness, and when the world-wide flu epidemic struck in 1918, it killed 25% of the population of Western Europe, but Joseph Pilates was widely given credit for the fact that there were no deaths amongst his followers in the POW camp.
