Reformer Pilates Class Image

Pilates has long been recognized as one of the best movement systems for improving core strength and stability, but it’s also one of the most effective methods for toning and sculpting the abs, hips, waist, and thighs. With summer just around the corner, there’s no better time to incorporate reformer Pilates into your routine because remember, summer bodies are made in winter!

The real beauty of reformer Pilates is that it’s not restricted to specific body parts, in fact it’s a phenomenal workout for your entire body. Yes, Pilates moves focus on your core and trunk, but that doesn’t just mean your abs. It’s important to know that the core includes your entire trunk, which is the abdominals, the hips, the inner and outer thighs, and the back – so expect an all over workout.

As some of you will already know our workout requires you to work against resistance that can be adjusted using the springs on the reformer. Training with resistance builds strength, and although it often doesn’t look like it’s burning a ton of calories or breaking a sweat, the long-term benefits of greater lean muscle mass are great, including an increased metabolism.

Perhaps more important than the physical benefits, the magic of Reformer Pilates runs so much deeper than a flat tummy. Beyond your toned physique your body will be transformed from the inside out. You’ll not only notice the difference in how your body looks and moves, the calming power of reformer Pilates is immense enough to help clear your mind, leaving you de-stressed, relaxed and fresh for summer.
