Utilising the benefits of world-class Reformer machines to spice up your Pilates regime and reap the health benefits.
The Physio Pilates Proactive reformer classes are dynamic, fun, and that little bit different from your usual Pilates class. The reformer machine combines a sliding platform with a frame, and is spring-loaded to provide resistance and challenge your muscles to work harder.
What to know
Participants can expect a full body workout in a variety of positions, with an emphasis on strengthening and toning the body but without bulking up, like more traditional gym work. Many of the exercises are done in standing and because of the platform’s moving base, balance also improves.
At more challenging levels, you will also get your heart rate up, increasing aerobic fitness. Reformer classes provide huge versatility and can be scaled up or down depending on the person’s ability level.
Reformer classes run for 45 minutes and are generally a more intense workout than other Pilates classes. Perfect for anyone wanting a faster paced, more dynamic class whilst still following correct and safe Pilates technique. Smaller class sizes create a sense of camaraderie and allow for more personal attention to technique. Not suitable for pregnancy.
