There is likely no more famous piece of Pilates equipment than the AeroPilates reformer. Although the machine may be a bit intimidating when you first see it, the truth is that a reformer can greatly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your Pilates workout. But what makes the AeroPilates reformer so special? Today, the team at Stamina Products will discuss the benefits of a reformer and how it can take your athletic performance to the next level.
What is an AeroPilates Reformer?
A Pilates reformer, at its most basic, is a bed-like frame which rolls back and forth on wheels on the frame of the reformer. The platform is attached to one end of the reformer with springs, which allow adjustable levels of resistance. Before Stamina Products and Marjolein Brugman developed the AeroPilates reformer, these machines were only found in Pilates studios. With the inception of AeroPilates, this incredible machine was finally available for home gyms.
Now, the incredibly low-impact, total-body strengthening workout can be done from the comfort of your home. Below, we will address some of the incredible health and fitness benefits you can achieve with an AeroPilates reformer.
Improves Core Muscle Strength
Pilates has long been known as a fantastic way to target the core muscles of the body. In these workouts, you roll, twist, and curl in ways that most workouts simply cannot match. From your hips to your shoulders and everything in between, Pilates is world-renowned for targeting these core stabilizers.
The AeroPilates reformer takes these incredible benefits to 11. The resistance of the pulley and spring system offers more resistance than what you can get with just bodyweight. You’ll achieve better coordination and body balance with regular work on an AeroPilates reformer.
One of the best benefits of improved core strength is the impact it has on your posture. Using the deep core muscles of your body — the abdominals, back, and pelvic floor — allows your shoulder, neck, and head to relax and move freely.
Improved posture has a huge range of benefits, including joint pain relief, improved balance, and increased flexibility. You will move more efficiently, have improved muscle function, and relieve pressure on your internal organs, just to name a few benefits.
Reformers are Great for Beginners and Experts Alike
Although an AeroPilates reformer may be intimidating, the truth is they can actually help you improve your Pilates workouts faster than mat workouts. The machine helps guide your body to the correct range of motions, ensuring you don’t overwork your muscles while you adjust to the exercises.
Reformers are not just for beginners, however. Thanks to the adjustable difficulty inherent in the spring and pulley system, even seasoned AeroPilates veterans can improve the efficiency of their workouts. Best of all, Stamina Products offers a wide range of instructor-led AeroPilates workouts to guide you from start to finish in your fitness journey.
