Body Language: pH7 Pilates

Joseph Pilates never had a sex change. While it remains a popular misconception that Pilates is primarily for women, its inventor was, in fact, a man. Not any mere man either, Pilates was a boxer, a circus performer and a self-defense trainer. He could’ve probably kicked most of our @$$-es if he’d wanted to. Thankfully, his boxing opponents’ @$$-es were the only ones he wanted to kick in the literal sense. His Pilates students? Their @$$-es only got kicked in the anaerobic sense. And so can yours (in a good way). Not by its inventor, mind you (Pilates passed away in 1967), but by any number of his living disciples. Denver’s own Cher Aslor, of Capital Hill’s pH7 Pilates, is among them.
