Taking part in reformer Pilates classes has the potential to have transformative effects for many people. So, how quickly might you see results?

Our reformer Pilates classes in West Ryde may provide you with a broad array of benefits as you work towards your health and fitness goals. Find out more about reformer Pilates and when you might see results.

What is Reformer Pilates?

Traditional Pilates was developed over one hundred years ago. The structured exercises aim to engage certain muscle groups, improve flexibility, strength and posture, and enhance body awareness.

Reformer Pilates utilises the approach and techniques involved in traditional Pilates and adds different elements that you may find enjoyable and advantageous.

Whereas traditional Pilates is typically performed on a mat with minimal or no equipment, reformer Pilates involves the use of a specialised piece of equipment. The reformer consists of a horizontal frame with a flat platform, known as a carriage, which moves along the frame on wheels.

There are resistance springs on one end of the frame that connect to the carriage. These adjustable bands, as well as straps that can be used with your hands or feet, allow for differing levels and types of exercises.

What Happens in a Reformer Pilates Class?

Our physiotherapists develop a tailored program for you that incorporates your needs, abilities, and goals. This may include exercises that have you lying, sitting, kneeling, or standing on the carriage. These can be modified to suit you and can vary from beginner to advanced levels.

Prior to your first class, your physio will provide a thorough assessment of your abilities and relevant medical history and any current symptoms or concerns you may be dealing with. They will also discuss with you your goals and preferences.

Our classes are limited to 4 people. This is because we aim to maximise your time and increase the safety and effectiveness of your sessions. Your physio can adjust your technique and exercises to optimise the outcomes.
