What is Reformer Pilates?

It was invented by Pilates founder Joseph Pilates. The reformer is a bed-like frame with a flat platform called the carriage, which rolls back and forth on wheels within the frame.
The carriage is attached to one end of the reformer by a set of springs, providing varying levels of resistance as the carriage moves.
At the spring end, there’s an adjustable footbar that can be used by feet or hands.
Long straps with handles are attached to the top end of the frame, allowing movement of the carriage using legs or arms.

Therefore, it is common for people to do it for fitness purposes, because it is working on your whole body.
It also improves one’s overall strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance.
It’s particularly effective for core engagement, muscle isolation, and rehabilitation.
