How does Pilates equipment training differ from Pilates mat?
The Pilates equipment was designed to compliment the exercises on the mat. In order to have the full experience, a person should incorporate mat and machines. The reformer is designed to strengthen, stretch and bring balance to the body much like the mat exercises. However, it uses springs as resistance and your body weight. Reformer training is a safe and effective method for any age or fitness level. With dedication and consistent practice, you will strengthen your core muscles and increase your body awareness. Pilates can be designed to meet each clients needs. It is gentle enough for the beginning exerciser, yet it can be made more challenging for the elite athlete.
