Bolton & Bury's Pilates Reformer Studio
The 'Reformer' is a specialized piece of equipment. It has a unique combination of sliding carriages, springs, and straps.
All kinds of exercises are done on the reformer to promote length, strength, flexibility, and balance.
You will use your Centre 'Powerhouse' to move your body weight and the spring-loaded reformer carriage.
In the class, you will lie, sit, kneel and stand, stretching, extending the body entirely, and accessing a full range of movement.
It develops balance and coordination and strongly affects the entire body, not just isolated muscle groups—the workout results in a uniformly developed body with strong back and abdominal muscles.
In other words, the reformer can train many parts and dynamics of the body in so many different ways with just one relatively sleek piece of equipment!
