Pilates apparatus utilise spring loaded resistance, gravity and movement to challenge the body during exercise. The support and feedback given by the apparatus allows specific muscle groups to easily be identified and targeted.
Equipment classes demand a high level of personal, individual attention and are of particular benefit in the rehabilition of injuries and as exercise regimes for people with specialised conditions or specific training goals.
The most well-known Pilates machine is named the Reformer. Invented by Joseph Pilates himself, it is the most commonly found apparatus in studios worldwide because of its versatility. Other popular apparatus include the Cadillac, the Wunda Chair and the Ladder Barrel, all of which can be found at the Core Sense Studio.
