The Pilates Reformer is an exercise machine used to incorporate the Pilates exercise technique for a challenging and intense workout. The reformer is comprised of Springs, a footbar, pull straps, and a moving carriage. The springs and a person’s body weight are used as resistance to pull or push the carriage while performing movements targeting specific muscle groups. The Pilates reformer helps open the door for hundreds of strengthening and stretching exercises.
The Pilates Tower is an add-on item to the reformer to further increase exercise options. The tower is attached to the head end of the reformer and includes a roll down bar, push through bar, and multiple springs and attachment points for a versatile workout.
The EXO chair is based off the original design of Joseph Pilates’ Wunda Chair. The chair consists of a seat, a split pedal, and adjustable springs attached to the pedal. There are a wide variety of exercises that can be performed on the chair. Movements are done in seated, kneeling, supine over the chair, and standing position. The exercises on the chair require core strength, control, and balance in order to perform properly.
The Combo Chair has a similar look and functioning as the EXO chair. The added benefit of the combo chair is its heavy duty build and the extendable handles that aide in balance and control.
