Probably the most versatile piece of exercise equipment you will ever have the pleasure to experience, allow me to introduce you to your Reformer. Designed by Joseph Pilates to accelerate the process of stretching, strengthening, body alignment and increased core strength, this piece of kit is truly for use by everyone, from the novice to the super-fit. Using a simple wooden frame, a moveable carriage, a footbar and adjustable straps, it addresses virtually every part of the body. Springs of varying strength provide resistance and support while you push on the footbar, pull the straps, lie on the box or stand on the carriage. The infinite number of exercises on the Reformer vary from simple isolated movements of the arms and legs to complex exercises involving the whole body. Jumpboards can be attached for jumping exercises to train for power and strength and to provide a flat surface to mimic the mechanics of standing and walking whilst the body is horizontal.
Experience in your own body the imbalances and weaknesses that the perfect symmetry of this beautiful machine will allow you to feel, and then recalibrate, lengthen and strengthen. It’s fun and you’ll love it.
But not only that. The Reformer is just one of a range of other amazing apparatus designed by Joseph Pilates to align, strengthen and balance your body – most of which we have here at the Fab studio – so why not come along and trial a session – feel the difference…
