Pilates PropsAs Pilates exercise has evolved over the past 75 years or so, different instructors, training institutions and equipment manufacturers have developed new apparatus to enhance and add variety to the repertoire. Some are inspired by Joseph Pilates' own designs and others have emerged through contemporary ingenuity. Still more are borrowed from other fitness and rehabilitation disciplines.
The small props such as Pilates balls, Pilates circles and Pilates resistance bands engage the Pilates principles and can be incorporated into any personal training or group mat class, perhaps in combination with other props for a circuit training program. They also make excellent accessories for exercise enthusiasts who want to practice at home with a Pilates video, plus most props are lightweight and portable enough to travel with. Now going on the road is no excuse to neglect your physical fitness regimen!
