At Trainor Movement Co., we're passionate about empowering our community through mindful movement, and our STOTT PILATES Reformer is at the heart of our practice. Designed to provide support, resistance, and endless possibilities for movement, the Reformer is a versatile piece of equipment that caters to individuals of all fitness levels and goals.

Let's start by exploring the foundation of the Reformer: the rails. Crafted from sturdy materials and precision-engineered for stability, our Reformer frames provide a secure base for your workouts, ensuring safety and confidence as you move through your Pilates routine. You'll learn new exercises every class - some that include using the rails! (Hi Bear Crawls, we're talking about you.)

Next up, we have the carriage, the central platform where all the action happens. Upholstered for comfort and equipped with adjustable springs, the carriage glides smoothly along the rails, offering resistance and support to enhance your movements and engage your muscles fully.

Attached to the carriage are the straps and ropes, essential accessories for adding variety and challenge to your workouts. Whether you're performing leg straps, arm exercises, or working with the ropes for upper body strength, these attachments provide endless opportunities for sculpting and toning your body from head to toe.

We use soft green loops for comfort and style. Plus there's no metal attachments, which makes it a quiet, sensory-friendly experience.

Now, let's talk about the springs, the powerhouse of the Reformer. With various resistance levels to choose from, the springs allow for progressive overload, enabling you to continuously challenge yourself and progress in your practice. Whether you're looking to build strength, improve flexibility, or enhance coordination, the springs provide the perfect amount of resistance to meet your needs. Just like calisthenics, Pilates uses springs to focus on eccentric muscular control!

Adjustable to different heights and positions, the footbar accommodates a wide range of body types and movement patterns, ensuring a customized and comfortable experience for every practitioner.
