Spring into Action with Your Pilates Reformer
SPRING INTO ACTION WITH YOUR PILATES REFORMER
As we enter the spring season, perhaps your resolve to get (or stay) in shape is beginning to fall by the wayside. Don’t let that happen! Pilates is a great way to fulfill that resolution, especially if you need to lose some weight. The single most sophisticated piece of Pilates equipment you can possibly own in terms of the versatility of the exercises you can perform with it is called the Pilates Reformer. Springs are used to adjust the machine for different exercises and different tension levels, so you’ll be springing into action in more ways than one. Let’s take a look at the different models that are available.
The Pilates Reformer
The basic Pilates Reformer does not include a trapeze, but it is a solid piece of equipment for sure. There is a moving carriage that makes it possible for the platform on which your body rests to glide easily back and forth. In addition to the weight loss benefits of Pilates, the exercises possible on the Pilates Reformer will help you build core strength and flexibility. One word of caution is in order here. When you’re buying a Pilates Reformer, make sure to invest in one that is made out of quality materials. You may feel like you’re saving money up front by purchasing a less expensive model, but in the long run, you’ll just be throwing your money away.
A piece of equipment is available which combines the features of a Pilates Reformer with a trapeze table, which is another well-known piece of Pilates equipment. It’s called the Pilates Reformer with Half Trapeze. One of the best things about this particular piece of equipment is the fact that it’s really easy to switch between reformer and trapeze table functions. What’s more, when using either function, adjustments are just as easy to the tension levels as they would be if you were using the individual machines themselves. That means that no matter what exercise you want to perform, and no matter what tension level you prefer, it will be very easy to get set up for it.
The Pilates Reformer with Full Trapeze
As its name implies, the Pilates Reformer with Full Trapeze is even more versatile than the Pilates Reformer with Half Trapeze. This combination piece of exercise equipment offers virtually everything you will ever need to perform any Pilates exercise you ever want to. Plus, it’s just as easy to set it up in the first place as it is to switch between its functions.
