Pilates equipment

Pilates was first created using the apparatus, it was then translated to the mat to make it more accessible. When you hear about famous people using Pilates to create their physique’s it is the studio equipment classes they are referring too.

The Cadillac, Tower, Wunda Chair, Barrel, Reformer and Spine Corrector. Joseph designed the apparatus to help accelerate the process of stretching, strengthening, body alignment and increased core strength, therefore challenges you in ways the matwork can not.

The feedback and support allows you to activate the correct muscles and can support you in taking your practice back to the mat.

Only available in our private and duet sessions.

Ultimate Tower pilates

Ultimate Tower classes combine the fluidity of the Pilates matwork with the spring resistance like the Pilates Reformer, utilising other pieces of the small equipment such as the spine corrector, fitness balls and the wonderful gliders.

The Towers are based on the traditional Cadillac designed by Joseph Pilates an extremely versatile piece of studio equipment which allows you to do the same repertoire you would do on the Pilates Reformers with added extras that you will feel working.

Tower classes are an excellent introduction to the use of Pilates equipment.  The resistance from the springs help you to develop powerful, supple muscles that will be stretched while building strength and stability from the centre.

The Tower classes are particularly effective at working different areas of the body in isolation, allowing you to develop strength in both the deep stabilising muscles of the body as well as the global muscles in your arms and legs.

MOTR

Move over Reformer and make room for the new MOTR

Combines the comfort of a foam roller with the challenge of three weight level resistances, giving you a challenging and incredibly diverse workout tool. Exercise categories include cardio, balance, functional training, mind-body, agility, strength training and more.

MOTR’s unique and innovative design allows you to work out in eight different body positions, and quickly switch resistance while targeting different areas. It is an excellent group exercise or personal training option.

It would be easier to describe what you CAN’T do with a MOTR!
