How is reformer Pilates different than mat Pilates?
Reformer Pilates adds the twist of a special apparatus for more resistance. The reformer has a sliding carriage, foot bar, pulleys and springs. You do the exercises while lying down, standing, sitting or perched on the machine.
While mat Pilates primarily works the abdominals, the reformer works the legs and arms, as well as the core, for a more intense, full-body workout.
Who does reformer Pilates?
Anyone who wants to improve their flexibility, core strength, endurance and posture, while sharpening mental awareness.
Also, many tennis players, golfers, skiiers and other athletes work out on a reformer to improve their game. It’s great for correcting muscle imbalances, improving body awareness, enhancing range of motion, and increasing core strength and stability.
We recommend a strong foundation in mat Pilates before trying a reformer class. (For Weymouth Club’s mat Pilates classes, view our Group Exercise schedule. We also offer Hydro Pilates in our warm water therapy pool.)
How do I sign up?
Due to the equipment and small class sizes, reformer Pilates requires pre-registration. For information about rates and signing up, please Melanie Vaux at [email protected] or (781) 682-5826.
