Training on a Reformer gets you quick results, as you are working on your core during the entire training. You will burn more than 500 calories in one hour.

When practicing Pilates, the focus is on balanced training of the muscles around the joints. Pilates is three dimensional: there is movement in all planes of motion. Pilates prevents overtraining. A workout in the gym often concentrates on the short and big muscles, while Pilates works to lengthen the muscles and focuses more on deep muscle layers. Because of this, you work on better balance, posture and more flexible movement. Pilates results in strength in combination with flexibility. While doing Reformer Pilates you burn as much as 500 calories per hour and you tone your body at the same time. Pilates and strength training complement each other well.

When practicing Pilates regularly, the severity of the back pain will reduce in most cases and it will improve overall physical condition.
