The origins of Joseph Pilates’ exercises were spring-loaded machines to guide the body into the correct form while doing an exercise. Mat exercises require use of your own body weight as resistance, while the machines provide the additional spring resistance. In addition to the Reformer, Pilates Defined also provides the Cadillac or Trapeze table, the EXO Chair, Split Pedal Chair, Spine Corrector and the Ladder Barrel, among many other small props.
The machines incorporate all the key principles of Pilates such as postural alignment, breath, core control, flexibility, and concentration. They are low-impact.
