The Pilates Reformer is a machine used to incorporate Pilates exercise techniques for a challenging and intense workout. Springs, control and body weight are used as resistance while performing movements targeting specific muscle groups. The reformer adds increased resistance as you work your muscles through a controlled, full range of motion.
Benefits of using the Pilates reformer are increased muscular endurance and stabilizers, increased core strength, improvement of posture, increased flexibility which decreases strain and stress on your joints and muscles, improves your breathing to become deeper and less frequent, resulting in improved relaxation, and reduces body fat. Muscles are lengthened and strengthened and give you the increased endurance to perform everyday tasks without fatigue and help you increase performance in sport or exercise specific workouts.
The variety of exercises can be done lying down, sitting, kneeling, standing, pulling the straps, pushing the footbar, up on the footbar, on the shoulder rests, with additional equipment, upside down, and sideways.
