5 Benefits of Pilates Reformer

Pilates Reformer is for everybody and every body!

Created by Joseph Pilates, Pilates (originally called "Contrology") is one of the best strength-boosting, feel-good, total-body workouts for all fitness levels!  Here are just 5 of the many benefits of Pilates Reformer training!

1. It's gentle on your joints.

Exercises on the Pilates Reformer are done seated, lying down, or kneeling on the bed which means that your joints are always supported.  This unique approach means that every exercise is low-impact, making Pilates an ideal workout for those who want total-body strength training that isn't high-intensity.

2. It exercises your muscles in many different ways.

Isometric, hold-still-and-embrace-the-shake poses.  Resistance exercises where springs are incorporated to allow your muscles to contract, like bicep curls.   Lengthening exercises where your muscles go through a full range of motion, like lowering from a forward fold into a plank.  Exercising on the Pilates Reformer allows your muscles to work in every way possible to maximize results.

3. It's fun and versatile.

A first impression of the Pilates Reformer might be that it resembles a medieval device, but that couldn't be further from the truth!  Pilates Reformer is a time-tested exercise format that has endless possibilities for feel-good movement. Strength training. Stretching. Flexibility. Mobility. Mind-body awareness and so much more.  Each Pilates Reformer workout incorporates foundational Pilates exercises with a mix of unique and creative moves that keep things exciting, fun, and challenging.

4. You control the resistance.

Pilates Reformer workouts are 100% unique to you - your fitness level and ability.  The springs attached to each bed allow for complete customization of every exercise.  Want more of a challenge?  Increase the springs.  Want to lessen the challenge?  Reduce the number of springs.  It's that simple.  And, that ability to customize means that your Pilates Reformer workout can adapt to your needs, depending on how you feel during each session.

5. You'll feel more confident and empowered.

Anytime you do something positive for your overall wellness, you'll feel empowered and confident.  Movement is one way to cater to your wellness.  Movement that provides a mind-body connection takes that empowerment to the next level.  Pilates Reformer's focus on breathing, quality movements, and alignment through each exercise means that you must engage your mind to check in with your body in order to perform each exercise to its full potential.
