Special Note: Pilates has existed for over 80 years as an effective and safe form of exercise, when taught and applied correctly by a qualified "Certified Instructor" however in the past 25 years the word Pilates entered the mainstream as a result of an intellectual property lawsuit whereby a US federal court ruled the term "Pilates" generic and free for unrestricted use. Unfortunately this law enabled countless Copy Cat Pilates studios and Wannabe Trainers to make false claims that have given them entrée into the Pilates market to capitalize on this specialized fitness art and as a result, the general public now faces conflicting information about what Pilates is, how it works and what credentials they should seek out when looking for an instructor.
