"The mind, when housed within a healthful body, possesses a glorious sense of power."

-Joseph Pilates, letter to clients, 1939

"Patience and Persistence are vital qualities in the ultimate successful accomplishment of any worthwhile endeavor."

- Joseph Pilates, Return to Life Through Contrology

Pilates helps your body stay young, fit, and full of vitality. As Joe himself once said, "With body, mind, and spirit functioning perfectly as a coordinated whole, what else could reasonably be expected other than an active, alert, disciplined person."
