His purpose for developing an exercise system was for individuals to develop their physique to high levels of strength, flexibility and beauty by practice of one’s own mental control. The method represents a simple way of combining static stretching and aerobic breathing in a series of controlled, non-impact movements. He believed that his method which was called “contrology” resulted in uniform development, alignment of the skeletal system, and control of the movement, core strength, balanced use of all the muscles, coordination, flexibility, joint mobility and more.
