07 Dec What is Pilates Reformer?
Jess from Beam with Grace is now offering Pilates Reformer sessions on Mondays and Fridays at Halo, giving you the chance to Bend, Energise, Align and Move your body, using Pilates techniques on our brand new Allegro 2 Reformer.
What is a Pilates Reformer?
The Pilates Reformer is a structure that looks like an old fashioned bed frame. Originally made of wood, our Allegro 2 Reformer is made of aluminium.
The carriage of the Reformer is loaded by a number of springs that attach the carriage to the frame. When the carriage slides, horizontal resistance is created. A number of ropes and pulleys are also attached to the carriage and frame, and can be used to create additional resistance, or alleviate it, as required by our clients.
The level of resistance level is normally adjusted by the number of springs attached – one spring would provide the least resistance, whereas five springs would normally represent the maximum resistance.
Why choose Pilates Reformer?
Reformer Pilates is considered a more dynamic and intense workout to MatWork Pilates.
With Reformer Pilates, you work through greater ranges of motion with resisted springs and bands.
The Reformer is great for both the beginner and seasoned Pilates pro, enabling you to improve strength, flexibility and posture.
