Just got my copy of IDEA Fit Tips, and what a nice article by Mary Monroe about Pilates!
CNBC reports that Pilates is the nation’s fastest-growing fitness activity. An amazing 8.6 million participants! A 450% increase since 2000. WOW!
Even though the economy has been a bit shaky, Pilates participation is holding strong. What a great testament to the benefit of the work, and important value that’s being placed on maintaining whole-body health, regardless of what’s going on in the world around us.
Joseph Pilates said he was 50 years ahead of his time… I know his spirit is looking down at all the great Pilates happening in the world with a giant smile – since the time has arrived and Pilates continues to grow and blossom, reaching more and more people with life-changing benefits for better mind-body health.
