What is the Pilates Reformer?
What is the Pilates Reformer? Invented by Joseph Pilates, the reformer is a bed-like frame called the carriage. Carriage has wheels which allows it to move forward and back and is attached by a set of springs that offers different levels of resistance. The reformer has an adjustable footbar that can be used both for hands and feet and hand/foot straps attached to the top end of the frame. One of the best things of the reformer is it’s versatility.
