It’s quite simple: dynamic resistance and a moving surface. The springs that attach the sliding carriage to the reformer’s frame, which are added and subtracted throughout the session, make Pilates a whole new adventure.
The resistance from the springs allows you to isolate specific muscle groups. The straps allow you to put your body into various positions to strengthen the different muscles of your body without “cheating” or compensating in other areas of the body to produce an effective and safe result.
