Reformer Pilates HQ

Two months ago I decided to up my exercise game with Reformer Pilates. Signing myself up to an intensive course  (three times a week) using a machine that looks like a torture device or something out of Fifty Shades of Grey can be off putting – but how wrong was I!



So what is Reformer Pilates?

Reformer Pilates is a machine with a series of springs with different resistance levels, to allow for a deeper and aided stretch.

What are the benefits of Reformer Pilates?

– It helps strengthen your core

– Helps maintain a good posture

– helps sculpture long and lean muscles

-improves flexibility

-helps with relaxation and breathing



What are Mrs J’s personal benefits?

I personally have found that my posture has improved.  I am always moaning about back pain (which Mr J can vouch for) and since doing Reformer Pilates I have noticed less pain and fewer knots in my back.  My sleeping pattern has also improved and I think that’s down to my body being more relaxed and stretched out from a day of sitting at my desk.  I have also taken early morning classes at 7am or 8am, and yes at the time it is very tempting to stay in bed, but after starting my day with a few stretches I am more focused and happier in general.  If you haven’t tried Reformer Pilates yet then I would definitely recommend it. There are different classes available throughout the day: Beginners, Intermediate, Cardio and Fat burn.  Each teacher also has a different style so if your not a reformer pro my advice would be to start with a beginners class when going to a new instructors.  Each class is also limited with a maxinum of 8-10 people for any given lesson, so you do get full attention and each posture is checked by the instructor.

There are many Reformer Pilates Studios around London.  The one I go to is Pilates HQ in Angel Islington.
