Replicate the Reformer

In any Pilates workout, controlled resistance is key. While you can effectively use your body weight on the mat, a Reformer’s pulleys and springs offer a range of new challenges. But since making it to the studio isn’t always easy or accessible, this program will help you replicate the reformer at home using creative movements and simple props. It’s perfect for filling in the gaps between studio visits, or adding more power and versatility to your regular routine.

Week 1

Pilates

This well-rounded workout will challenge your muscles in new ways while teaching basic reformer principles and technique. Begin with footwork, practice a seated arm series with optional weights, then use your props to add resistance in moves like box work and clams. You'll fire up your whole body, then end with a nice stretch. Props Needed: A resistance band and a set of light weights.

Week 2

Pilates

Level 2 30 mins

Revisit the series you learned in your first class, adding in more challenge and variety. With a bit longer practice time, you'll explore some harder variations and creative new moves.

Props Needed: A resistance band and a set of light weights.

Week 3

Pilates

Level 2 45 mins

Use all the confidence, skills, and strength you developed in the first two classes in one powerful sequence. Practice smooth transitions as you revisit moves like the single and double leg series, backstroke, and clams, then grab a set of gliding discs for a dynamic new challenge. You'll work to keep your body controlled as you skate, lunge, and slide through series of fiery gliding movements. Props Needed: A resistance band, a set of light weights, and gliding discs.
