The Pilates system was devised while working with injured servicemen during the First World War. Using breath and stretching technique, the Reformer’s many attachments increase the range of modifications that can be made to the exercises, This capability, combined with the support given by the resistance the machine provides, allows people with limited range of movement or injuries to safely do modified exercises. The reformer offers overall strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance. These things in turn lead to daily life improvements like better posture, graceful, efficient movement, and for many relief from pain associated with physical imbalances such as back pain. The Pilates equipment is great for those with osteoporosis because the springs provide the resistance needed for bone strengthening and offer limitless movement possibilities.
