5 REASONS TO DO REFORMER PILATES

Reformer Pilates is a full-body system that will improve and maintain overall physical fitness leading to improved strength, flexibility, and balance. In turn, this will improve posture, movement, and mental health. 

What is Reformer Pilates?

Reformer Pilates is for everybody, whatever your age or physical abilities. Exercises can be modified or enhanced according to the individual needs of the person practising. So if you want to improve your physical fitness and strength while developing a better posture and flexibility, Reformer Pilates is for you.

 

5 REASONS TO DO REFORMER PILATES

Here are our top 5 reasons to do Reformer Pilates.

  1. Recovering from injury

If you are recovering from a recent or old injury Reformer Pilates can help you because the springs and ropes are specifically designed to work in the horizontal plane rather than weight-bearing, reducing the load through your body. In addition, the low impact allows for repetitive movements that tone and strengthen the injured area, speeding up recovery.

  1. Improve posture and core strength

Most of the exercises performed on a Pilates Reformer machine target the core while working the peripheral postural muscles. The Reformer Pilates exercises also target your posture, bringing awareness to your posture concerning your spine. A strong core supports the ideal posture.

  1. Recognise and work with imbalances in the body 

The Reformer is a fully balanced machine where springs and straps allow you to move in a supported, controlled way through a full range of movement. The moving carriage gives you intelligent feedback enabling you to identify any imbalances. Your teacher at Chapel Allerton Pilates will then guide you to adjust the Reformer or exercise, so you’re working in the correct alignment for your body. 

  1. Improve strength,  mobility, and flexibility 

Our Reformer Pilates classes provide a wide variety of exercises that target different muscle groups in the body. As a result, you will strengthen muscles and increase your range of motion o
