Why Joe?

 The Classical Pilates Difference


“In 10 sessions you’ll feel the difference, in 20 you’ll see a difference and in 30 you’ll have a whole new body.” – Joseph Hubertus Pilates

Through 60 years of research, the Pilates form was developed by Joseph and his wife Clara with the goal of creating transformational exercise. Pilates, now a world renowned workout method, will a create long, lean physique.  Perhaps even more beneficial, Classical Pilates derived from Joe’s original methodology provides a host of corrective benefits — relieving postural imbalances, improving flexibility, easing chronic pain and more.

As revolutionary entrepreneurs, inventors and movement therapists, Joe and Clara  elevated exercise science to art.  Our goal at Aero Joe is promote the integrity, vision and excellence of Joseph Pilates’ work while also enhancing overall health and wellbeing.
