KINETIC CHAIN® Training Sessions


What is the education?

KINETIC CHAIN® Training Education is based upon the concept introduced by Mechanical Engineer Franz Reuleaux in 1875: One joint is connected to another joint which the movement of one joint would affect the movement of another joint which creates a link of a kinetic chain.


Dr. Arthur Steindler, in 1995, adapted Reuleaux’s theory to the analysis of human movement, sport-specific activity patterns and exercise.  He defined the kinetic chain as a “combination of several successively arranged joints constituting a complex motor unit.”

Why is it beneficial?

KINETIC CHAIN® education at Pilates South Texas is designed to complement fitness science principles of all modalities of exercise.
