What's so special about Reformer?

Moira Riccio

The Pilates Reformer was originally designed as a rehab machine, about 100 years ago by Joseph Pilates.  Today's modern-day version looks like a bed, actually, with straps and pulleys.  The machine uses spring resistance so that, as you pull or press your whole body weight, the tension is on your muscles the entire time.   Most importantly, you breathe into every move, so you relax as well.

You sit, or kneel, or stand on a moving "bed," called the carriage, so as you strengthen and tone arms and legs, you build CORE stability.  Many of the exercises you do are in the "neutral"position with you lower back, so it's incredibly good to reduce lower back pain and improve your posture.

It's "intelligent exercise with profound results."  (according to STOTT Pilates)

It's functional exercise.

It's a jungle gym for adults!

Try it and see how you feel.....   Call me if you are interested in learning more about it.  I can teach you the five basic principles of Pilates and how they correlate to the Reformer.  It's all good ~ in fact, it's truly awesome!
