Learn to work against the resistance of springs, straps and pulleys to enhance the workout experience. The body is challenged in a variety of different positions such as lying down, sitting, standing, pulling the straps, pushing the footbar, sitting on the footbar, perched on the shoulder pads. Add on equipment such as jump boards and boxes allow further positions including hanging upside down and sideways. Adjustable settings and varying levels of resistance allow the exercises to be modified to enhance balance, control, strength and flexibility. With just one piece of equipment, the Reformer can train many different body parts in a variety of different ways. The systematic approach allows for a whole body workout, that totally sculpts the entire body.
The Reformer offers all of the usual Pilates benefits including strength, flexibility, coordination and balance, which all help to improve posture and movement efficiency. Bones become stronger and joint mobility increases. As the body becomes aligned and balanced due to corrective postural exercises, students often experience a reduction in pain caused by muscle imbalance.

These sessions are only available on a private lesson basis at our Sunderland Studio
Single Session Credit - We recommend this option for first time users. Although it is a slightly more expensive option, you don't have to commit yourself to purchasing a whole course of lessons. The advantage is that this option allows you to try out your chosen class to see if you like it or not. The disadvantage is that it is more expensive and you only get 7 days to use your lesson from the date of purchase. This means that you have to wait until the last minute to book your chosen class, which may mean that it is already fully booked if it is a popular class.
Six Session Credits - We recommend this option for regular clients who have already tried out our different classes. You get 8 weeks to use up your 6 credits. You can use your 6 credits for any class on any day or time, with any instructor and for all of the different movement methods. The advantage of this option is that it is cheaper than a single session but you are able to book up for your chosen class up to 8 weeks in advance. This means that you are likely to be guaranteed your place on your chosen class if a particular class is very popular.
Twelve Session Credits - We recommend this option for regular clients who have already tried out our different classes. This option is designed for students who wish to attend classes at least twice a week. Effectively, you get your second class at half price. However, you only get 8 weeks to use up your 12 credits. This means that the system forces you to come to at least two sessions a week. You can use your 12 credits for any class on any day or time, with any instructor and for all of the different movement methods. The system allows you to book up for your chosen classes up to 8 weeks in advance. This means that you are likely to be guaranteed your place on your chosen class if a particular class is very popular.
