"Contrology [Pilates], is not a fatiguing system of dull, boring, abhorred exercises repeated daily 'ad-nauseam.' Neither does it demand your joining a gymnasium, nor the purchasing of expensive apparatus. You may derive all the benefits of Contrology [Pilates] in your own home."
- Joseph H. Pilates, 1934 Return to Life Through Contrology
