Reformer Pilates leads 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. Pushing and pulling with legs or arms against the resistance of the springs, carriage, and body weight is generally strength building. The exercises provide enough resistance and movement variety to help build strong bones. Exercising with the reformer is possible for anyone, at any level of fitness.
