The Reformer is a bed-like apparatus that facilitates a seemingly unlimited number of exercises. The design gives the user the advantage of training specific muscles with ease, stretching and lengthening while strength training the body’s core to improve appearance, balance and flexibility. It’s done through the use of a carriage with wheels gliding on a frame. There are springs connected to the carriage to offer varying amounts of resistance. Additionally straps, ropes, a foot bar and various accessories such as balls, weights, a magic circle, a box, and the tower add to positive outcomes. Clients can also use a jumpboard to mimic a trampoline and improve cardio. Use of a reformer can be as challenging as a user would like. Beginner or Advanced, it’s effective and it’s fun!
