  1. In England, Pilates was jailed for being a German national during World War I. He began to train his fellow inmates with his exercises which would later be called “contrology”. The English Government took note of this and Pilates was sent to a military hospital to help rehabilitate the injured who often couldn’t even get out of their beds. Joseph took the bed springs and attached them to various surfaces to provide resistance for his patients to pull against. This enabled the patients to heal quicker and helped relieve stress and depression that was often suffered by the patients and the inmates in jail.
