Based on the work of Joseph Pilates.


Pilates is a body conditioning method that works in a different way to other fitness techniques. It works by building strength from inside out! One is encouraged to breathe more efficiently by breathing laterally into the lower ribcage. The creation of a ‘Girdle of Strength’ targeting the deep ‘Core’ postural muscles that stabilise the torso is one of the primary aims and correcting imbalances bringing the body into correct alignment. It helps reshape your body, which will become longer, leaner and more toned. It will also improve your posture, achieving the perfect balance between strength and flexibility. Precise, controlled, following movements mean that muscle ligament damage is avoided. The Pilates method offers both mental and physical training, teaching you to be in ‘Control of your Body’.

Pilates for men:

Are they too macho for the likes of Pilates exercises? Try telling that to the top sportsmen all over the world for whom Pilates classes are compulsory to help prevent injuries, premier league footballers, the England cricket athletics are well versed in the benefits of doing Pilates. Pilates is an effective form of exercise because it develops core strength and improves your posture, something all men can benefit from just as much as women. Those core muscles that Pilates targets so perfectly can help alleviate back and shoulder problems so many of us suffer with from muscle imbalance.

So remember only real men do Pilates!




Since 1996, Body Control Pilates has been at the forefront of the international growth in Pilates. We pioneered the development of group matwork Pilates by creating innovative training programmes for teachers that ensured that, for the first time since Joseph Pilates developed his method almost 90 years ago, almost everyone would have access to the benefits that Pilates offers.

Today, Body Control Pilates is widely seen as a benchmark for safe and effective teaching of the highest quality, with teachers working in more than 40 countries. It is Europe’s largest professional Pilates organisation with 1,100 teaching members and all of our certified teachers have, at a minimum, completed a comprehensive training course in Body Control Pilates matwork (Level 3). They work to a Code of Practice governing teaching standards, professional ethics and continuing education. This ensures that teachers continue to build their own skills and knowledge on an ongoing basis, with all Body Control Pilates teachers having access to a programme of more than thirty further courses after initial qualification.
