Why Choose GB Sports Physio Reformer Pilates?
It’s about you. At GB Sports Physio you’re a person, not a membership number. We guarantee personalised focused attention. Reformer sessions are limited to two clients, just as Joseph Pilates intended, unlike gym-like set-ups.
What Is Reformer Pilates?
Pilates is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercise using a floor mat or a variety of equipment. It evolved from the principles of Joseph Pilates and can dramatically transform the way your body looks, feels and performs.
The Reformer is a sophisticated machine with a system of springs, straps and pulleys that allows the user to perform over 200 different types of exercises. The Reformer glides forwards and backwards on rollers and uses the springs, leverage and own body weight for resistance for a wide variety of exercises and positions (i.e. lying down, seated, and standing) and you can use the springs to apply extra external resistance.
At GB Sports Physio our clients have access to Allegro 2 reformers from Balanced Body, they are the most modern and safe reformers in the Pilates market.
The benefits of Pilates combine controlled movements designed to strengthen the muscles while focusing on your core and alignment to strengthen posture, improve flexibility, balance and enhance mental awareness and coordination.
Reformer Pilates is no-impact (and therefore easy on the joints) and accommodates full-range motion which is great for increasing flexibility and building strength – making it very suitable for patients with injuries.
The exercises and machine are adjustable depending on the client level of skill and objective, which makes exercising with the reformer possible for anyone, at any level of fitness and especially those with injuries.
At GB Sports Physio we first look at your joint movement, then we consider muscle imbalances, your programme is then designed around what your body requires, resulting in a tall lean posture, reduced physical and mental stress, defined abs, arms, legs etc. A true overall body workout.
Clients attending Reformer classes will be carefully matched to their ability and have their progress constantly monitored.
