WHAT IS DYNAMIC REFORMER PILATES?
Rather than mats, Dynamic Reformer Pilates classes involve exercising on Reformer machines, based on a century-old invention by Joseph Pilates himself. Imprisoned in a First World War camp, Pilates wanted to help bedridden fellow inmates keep their muscles moving and stop them wasting. Using patients’ hospital beds and bedsprings, plus any materials he could lay his hands on, he created a clever system of springs, straps and pulleys – enabling resistance exercise while lying down.
Expertly designed and totally safe, our Reformer machines are essentially a sophisticated version of Pilates’ original design, providing a highly effective, no-impact stretching and toning workout. They are kind to your skeleton and joints, and help lengthen and strengthen your muscles. As for the dynamic part of our workout, you’ll find a Bootcamp Pilates class highly energetic, invigorating, inventive and enjoyable: something different every time and with a stimulating soundtrack to boot. As a result, it’s a fantastic way to lose weight and gain a more aligned, toned body in a matter of weeks.
