If it's Pilates you want to get started with then Reformer Pilates is superior to mat based Pilates as the repertoire of exercises available is greatly increased providing far more variety. 

The exercises work muscles through a large range of motion which is ideal for building and toning muscles as well increasing stability through the joints.

Reformer Pilates works more areas than matwork as matwork is mostly core whereas reformer works the entire body and more the peripheral muscles of the arms and legs.

Reformer Pilates is great for rehab purposes too as it allows you to exercise in a horizontal plane of motion and not be vertically loaded and weight bearing through their legs. 

For example if you have had knee surgery or a knee injury, this horizontal plane enables you to strengthen the muscles of the leg through a larger range of motion using a lighter resistance than their body weight, speeding up recovery through controlled movement.

Reformer Pilates can be used as a sport specific cross training tool. Reformer Pilates works on core stabilisation which is vital to any athlete as well as muscle endurance, lactate tolerance, peripheral joint stability, muscle strength, balance, co-ordination and much more.

Pre and post natal on the Reformer is a great place to ensure you stay active during your pregnancy and after. Ideal to keep your pelvis stable and also build pelvic floor strength. For post natal you are welcome 6 weeks after normal delivery and generaly 12 weeks with c-section. 

Our Kick Start Reformer Pilates package is all you need to get started on the reformer. It costs £149 and includes:

- 1-1 Fundamentals Reformer session with a trained Pilates teacher (valued at £45)
