What is a Pilates reformer?
The reformer was invented by Pilates founder Joseph Pilates, it is a bed-like frame with a flat platform on it, called the carriage, which rolls back and forth on wheels within the frame. The carriage is attached to one end of the reformer by a set of springs which provide choices of differing levels of resistance as the carriage is pushed or pulled along the frame.
The reformer has long straps with handles that are attached to the top end of the frame. They can be pulled with legs or arms to move the carriage. Body weight and resistance of the springs are what make the carriage more or less difficult to move.
How is a reformer used?
The reformer is very versatile and exercises can be done lying down, sitting and standing training many parts of the body in lots of different ways.
All kinds of exercises are possible to promote length, strength, flexibility and balance for beginners to the most advanced.
What are the benefits?
