Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, after whom it was named. Pilates called his method "Contrology". Pilates developed in the aftermath of the late 19th century physical culture of exercising in order to alleviate ill health. There is however only limited evidence to support the use of Pilates to alleviate things like lower back pain. Evidence from studies show that while Pilates improves balance, it has not been shown to be an effective treatment for any medical condition other than evidence that regular Pilates sessions can help muscle conditioning in healthy adults, when compared to doing no exercise.

I do Pilates as much as I possibly can. With any regularity, no, but I go in spurts. Sometimes I'll do it a couple times a week, and then I'll skip two or three weeks. But, I do it as much as I possibly can because it makes my body feel so strong and healthy, more than any other workout routine. [I started Pilates] after I had my first baby.

I like to box. I like Pilates but I don’t love working out. It’s hard and it hurts.

All that flexibility training comes in handy, however, as another one of Miley's favorite ways to work out happens to be Pilates, known for its ability to majorly strengthen and sculpt your abs.

I really wish I was better about health. I don’t take vitamins, and I eat like an 11-year- old orphan. But I exercise! I do Pilates and I run.

It has become a part of her normal routine, and she's been alternating between cross-training and Pilates. "She does 60-minute sessions that include cardio, circuit training, and Pilates ... She's found a routine that's working for her and is enjoying it more."
