Reebok Pilates Reformer
Most people have heard about Pilates now days. It is becoming increasingly popular. It is the new fad exercise. It has been around for a long time but has only recently caught major national attention. Windsor Pilates is probably what most people are familiar with. They are advertising extensively on television. In fact, you've probably never seen one of these people using an exercise machine for Pilates. Hmm...that's because you don't need one! All you need is yourself and some comfy clothes. But as usual, where there's money to be had there are products to be advertised. This machine, as good as it is, is one of those.
I've never done Pilates before trying this machine. My girlfriend has been doing it for years and so have a few of her friends. My girlfriend and her best friend decided to buy this. It fits well in their apartment and was inexpensive as far as exercise equipment goes. I've used it less than a dozen times. I prefer to do Pilates without the machine. But it does provide great resistance.

- Smooth, Gliding Bench
The Good & The Bad:
The drawbacks to this machine are the resistance levels, it doesn't get really tough, but I suspect it's not supposed to. Also, for Pilates you don't need an exercise machine. So, you could consider this either a frivolous expenditure or a great tool in achieving great health. In any case, I think the bench could be padded a little better and perhaps made a few inches wider. I'm 6'4" and 215 lbs so the larger size bench would be helpful. But the bench moves smoothly on the rails and the pulleys work well too. The construction is sturdy and will last a long time. There is no recommended weight limit for the machine that I could find, but I'm sure anyone under 300 lbs will be fine. As with Pilates the Reformer works your whole body.
Size: 19-1/2" W x 82-1/2" L x 24" H
Extras Included: Workout Poster, Video, Guide Book
My girlfriend and I put it together in about 30 minutes or less. It is really simple. The instructions are clear and concise.

I know this machine will help many people get into shape who may otherwise not have looked into buying an exercise machine. The low impact, relaxed feel and energizing workouts are perfect for older folks and many women enjoy the slimming affect that Pilates has (without "bulking up").
I highly recommend the Reebok Pilates Reformer!
