Research is now backing up what users have known for decades. The AeroPilates Pilates Reformer is hugely effective at changing the body for the better, lengthening and strengthening every muscle, reducing stress and eliminating pain.
Reformer Pilates focuses on strengthening and toning muscles while also improving balance, flexibility, and posture. It involves the use of a machine called a reformer, which uses a series of springs or cords, and pulleys to create resistance and assist with movement. This type of exercise has gained popularity in recent years due to its many and profound benefits for both physical and mental health. Here are some of the key benefits of Reformer Pilates:
Most people have some kind of physical pain from years of incorrect movement, over zealous exercising and compounded injury. Joseph Pilates understood the negative effects of repetitive stress and touted the benefits of training the body as one integrated unit, in a symmetrically balanced way, on your back, on a machine that supports all structural weaknesses and challenges specific areas to simultaneously stretch and strengthen.
In today's chaotic, stress-filled world, a little exercise goes a long way to adding joy and vitality to your day. If you do nothing else, at least find 10 minutes to slowly stretch your whole body. Stretch to your full extension, relax in that position by exhaling into the stretch and then stretch a little more.
Joseph Pilates developed his method of working out to be performed on various pieces of equipment, the most common of which are the mat and the reformer. Both forms build strength, tone your body, improve your mental clarity and teach you how to use your breath. But there are some key differences between the two you should be aware of before you choose one route over the other.
