Created by Joseph Pilates, the Reformer is designed to provide resistance to what he calls your body’s powerhouse: your abs, lower back, hips, etc. The reformer offers all the benefits of Pilates including overall strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance. These things, in turn, lead to daily life improvements like better posture, graceful and efficient movement, and for many, relief from pain associated with physical imbalances such as back pain.
The Pilates powerhouse muscles – the muscles of the core – are paramount for building strength. Flat abs, strong backs, toned buttocks, and firm thighs are all results of this emphasis. This method is suitable for people of all ages, from beginners to active athletes.
