Using a Pilates Reformer can be an excellent way to add variety to your exercise routine. Pilates can improve balance, coordination, flexibility and overall strength. One of the benefits of the Pilates Reformer is that it allows for a full range of motion which simultaneously improves flexibility and strength. Muscles lengthen as they push or pull against the springs, carriage and body weight. Pilates promotes flat abs, toned glutes, and a strong back by engaging the Pilates powerhouse muscle: the core. Through the instability of the carriage and different spring settings, balance and core strength will improve tremendously. Everyday activities such as, posture and basic movements become easier as your Pilates technique advances. Physical imbalances that cause back pain can be restored through Pilates as well. One of the greatest benefits of Pilates is that anyone with any fitness level can do it. Add a Pilates Reformer session to your routine once a week and bask in the positive results!
