What is Reformer Pilates?

Here at Excelsia Studios we focus on reformer pilates. So what exactly is reformer pilates?

The reformer is a bed like frame with a platform that rolls back and forth on wheels. IT was invented by Joseph Pilates and has become a large part of many pilates classes and exercises. The Reformer machine uses springs for assistance and resistance to achieve proper muscle length and strength in an organised way. The reformer machine is excellent at assisting you to achieve the goals of pilates which include coordinating movements with emphasis on posture and control. This is why reformer pilates is so good for core strength.

What is the Reformer Pilates Machine?

The Reformer as it is commonly known, is the most famous piece of Pilates equipment.

The frame, called the ‘carriage’, moves around on wheels and is attached to one end by a set of springs. It is these springs that provide resistance as the platform is moved. There is also a footbar and long straps, which can be used by the legs and arms, and shoulder blocks for stopping the user falling off when working out.

The reformer machine can be used in many ways to benefit strength, flexibility and balance. The majority of the exercises involve pushing or pulling the platform against the spring resistance and controlling the movement back, or holding it in place. This can be done by either sitting, standing, upside down and using all the different elements of the reformer.
