STOTT PILATES® Reformer for the Older Adult

Explore the benefits of working on the Reformer for the older adult in this interactive workshop, developed by the Merrithew Health and Fitness™ team. Despite decrements associated with aging, the ability to adapt to endurance and strength training is well documented. The Reformer provides widely variable spring tensions to address both upper and lower body as well as core training. Modifications of exercises and considerations for limited mobility and strength issues are discussed with a view to enhance core stability, increase lean muscle mass, increase range of motion and improve body awareness.

  2. Understand how movements may need to be modified for older adults.
  3. Discover why STOTT PILATES exercise is beneficial in cases of restricted mobility.
