I LOVE this Pilates machine! When I read the reviews on Amazon, I knew this was the machine for me. And what a deal! The price was well! below the average.
I have never taken a pilates class but I was surprised at how easy I took to the machine. The reformer is well crafted, sturdy, comfortable and very easy to use and most of all it works!. The DVD gives you well rounded easy to follow instructions. This machine is really close to one of the machines in pilates gyms. I am so happy with this product. I was worried that I would not have the space for a regular reformer but this is a really great alternative. I have had it for two weeks and I already see results! The only problem I have had so far is the cords come un-wrapped when I am doing the leg exercises. Then I go to use them for my arms and they pull all the way through. So now I just double check it and it is no big deal. The tension is fantastic, although I was worried it wouldn't be enough. It was pretty easy to put together (it took about 15 minutes) and it's not hard to roll it out and begin!
I use the reformer at least 3 times a week. I love the results of a trimmer and stronger body without much sweat. I find it replaces free weights and have incorporated it into my daily routine.
