Pilates Reformer:

  • Makes it easy to execute movements in the precise way, with correct biomechanics and joint positions;
  • Offers a HUGE variety of exercises with maximum number of muscles being trained, and with specific focus on the core and joint stabilisors;
  • Encourages working in the full range of motion to increase flexibility while building strength;
  • The rolling carriage challenges stability and balance and further develop core strength;
  • Use of springs encourages eccentric muscle contractions, when a muscle lengthens as it resists a force. This is one of the keys to achieving the long, strong muscles without bulk;
  • For people with injuries, physical limitations or joint problems the Reformer is an ideal exercise machine, because it makes possible to have a complete control over the range of motion, speed and intensity of exercises.
