Reformer beds were invented by Joseph Pilates in the 1930’s and have been used around the world. They are composed of a flat bed that has a carriage that rolls back and forth with ropes and pulleys. Springs can be adjusted to suit the exercise, the strength of the participant and the overall objectives of the class. The reformer helps with strength and stamina.
How a Reformer Is Used
A wide variety of exercises are performed on the reformer to promote length, strength, flexibility, and balance. Most reformer exercises have to do with pushing or pulling the carriage or holding the carriage steady during an exercise as it is pulled on by the springs.
One of the best aspects about the reformer is its versatility. Exercises can be done lying down, sitting, standing, pulling the straps, pushing the footbar, perched on the footbar, perched on the shoulder blocks, with additional equipment, upside down, sideways, and all kinds of variations.
