Reformer Pilates

Pilates Reformer And The Benefits - Ellen


What is Reformer Pilates?

Reformer Pilates is Pilates performed on Reformer. One of the most adaptable and effective pieces of exercise equipment available, the Pilates Reformer allows a greater number of exercises than is possible just using a mat. The Pilates Reformer is a low frame, with a sliding platform (or carriage) on which you lie, sit, kneel or stand to perform different routines. The carriage is connected to the frame by a series of springs that can be adjusted to provide more support, and thus make an exercise easier, or to increase resistance and/or instability to increase the difficulty and challenge of the routine.

10 benefits of Reformer Pilates

  1. It’s a great, highly effective and time-efficient full body workout.

  2. It strengthens the core – the muscles that support the hips, spine and neck - really important for anyone who spends hours a day at a desk, or hunched over a laptop or a screen because it improves spinal alignment and reduces the risk of posture-related pain or injury.

  3. It improves muscle strength, endurance and tone.

  4. It improves posture, flexibility and balance – often lacking in sedentary lifestyles.

  5. It’s helps prevent injury.

  6. It’s mindful and immersive - a valuable time-out from the pressures of work and day-to-day life. It is a great way to reduce anxiety and stress.

  7. It’s low impact, and suitable for people of all ages and abilities.

  8. It’s great for improving strength and control of your Pelvic Floor – one of the most important, but most overlooked and under-trained muscle groups in the body.

  9. By improving your posture, strengthening, toning and lengthening your muscles, you’ll stand taller and look leaner.

  10. You feel and see the benefits fast. As Joseph Pilates said “In 10 sessions, you’ll feel better, in 20 sessions you’ll look better, and in 30 sessions you’ll have a completely new body.”
