Benefits of Reformer
1. HIGH INTENSITY, LOW IMPACT
The use of springs, straps and the carriage in a Pilates Reformer class makes it a low impact fitness option, perfect for treating an injury.
2. GREAT FOR ATHLETES
Not only is Reformer Pilates a popular option for those who want to improve their fitness for health reasons, but sports fans can also enjoy performance-enhancing benefits due to the different variety in springs.
3. INCREASES MUSCLE STRENGTH
The tough springs on the Reformer frame provide resistance as you perform Pilates movements, strengthening your muscles and toning your body.
4. IMPROVES MENTAL HEALTH
Breathing well is essential to mastering Reformer Pilates, just as with meditation and yoga, where a focused practice of inhaling and exhaling calms the mind and helps you get into a more rhythmic flow.
5. IDEAL FOR PREGNANCY
Reformer Pilates provides a safe option for staying healthy and active while pregnant. The low impact nature is perfect for swollen joints, the pelvic floor exercises will help during childbirth and core work will help ease back pain. Exercising during your pregnancy will maintain a base level of tone and fitness, helping your body to snap back more easily after pregnancy.
6. PERFECT FOR POSTURE
Your muscles contract to keep you balanced throughout the movements, thus improving your stability and creating better posture and alignment. Joseph Pilates believed posture was at the root of good health, and fitness experts agree.
7. IMPROVES FLEXIBILITY
Providing a deep stretch for your major muscles groups, Pilates movements are all about quality, not quantity. Reformer Pilates slowly transitions between controlled movements, engages and stretches your muscles as you try to maintain your balance.
The History Of Reformer Pilates
When Joseph Pilates was in the internment camp during World War I he developed Reformer Pilates due to the large number of patients that were bed bound in hospital. To assist with movement, Joseph attached springs to a bed to help patients engage in resistance exercises without having to stand up. Once Joseph opened his own studio in the 1920s, he refined the design of the Pilates reformer and incorporated this into his exercise system. As Pilates has evolved, the reformer has remained an essential piece of equipment and provides an effective and fun way to lengthen and strengthen the muscles of the body. The reformer is able to facilitate a full range of motion which improves flexibility while also providing the necessary resistance to strengthen the muscles.
While Mat Pilates does include some exercises that train your arms and legs, they're usually done with no — or very light — resistance. The reformer works your arms and legs more thoroughly, providing a more comprehensive workout.
The resistance of the reformer means you'll get results from your workouts faster. The tension of the springs on the moving carriage adjusts to different levels of difficulty.
