Pilates is a form of exercise that has gained popularity among athletes and fitness enthusiasts in recent years. Pilates was developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, who believed that mental and physical health were closely connected. Pilates emphasizes core strength, proper breathing, and controlled movements to improve posture, balance, flexibility, and overall physical and mental well-being. All these would benefit athletes, but many may not realize that Pilates would be an excellent wellness practice in addition to regular workout routines.
