How does the equipment work?

The Pilates Reformer builds muscular strength not bulk. The machine is composed of a rectangular platform with a carriage, springs, ropes and modern hydraulics mechanisms to create resistance against movement.

The moving carriage works with interchangeable resistance so it is possible to perform the exercises at all levels of difficulty.The foot plate allows for jumping, plyometrics and cardio exercise. The reformer provides unique exercise resistance that allows an individual to work with absolute precision whilst developing good alignment, core strength, flexibility and mobility.
