What is Classical Mat?

" What is Classical Mat? Classical Mat is a series of exercises that Joe Pilates created and developed. The Advanced Pilates Mat Routine is meant to be performed in a specific order with a specific number of repetitions in a specific amount of time (35 minutes) and with specific, smooth transitions. It is meant to be a workout! It is meant to be fluid and flow from one exercise to another with little to no break. Think of it as one long exercise! It also meant to be strong and challenging. Pilates sometimes is incorrectly thought of as slow and soft and not hard enough! Well those people aren’t doing it correctly or with the right instructor if they think that’s what this exercise is! Joe Pilates was very athletic and this workout showcases that! "  - [ from http://www.whatthefitness.com ]
