More positions. More adjustable. A better challenge.


High-Precision Gearbar System Upgrade

With 50% more gearbar positions (six positions) than our traditional system, our new Precision Gearbar System offers superior ergonomic spring placement and adds superior adjustability to meet user needs. Spring slots provide secure anchoring of the springs with six different options for spring tension. To make adjustments, simply pull two spring-loaded pins and slide the entire mechanism forward or backward and lock the gearbar in place to any of the six stopper settings.

(optional upgrade on all new professional Reformer purchases)

Add a Vertical Frame and Mat Converter

Reformer Vertical Frame

Increase your
programming by 80%
without adding more space.

Adding a Vertical Frame and Mat Converter to your Reformer dramatically increases programming options—about 80% of Cadillac exercises can be done on one machine. You don’t need to increase your floor space to expand your programming.

Mat Converter

With a Mat Converter in place, you can offer Matwork classes on the Rerformer at an accessible height for mobility-challenged and older clients.

Vertical Frame

Travelling pulleys on the Vertical Frame offer multiple options for adjusting the angle of pull and spring placement. This multi-planar, biomechanics training tool provides an increased range of motion, making it the premier tool for sports-specific rehab and cross-training. You can attract new clients with sports-specific classes that can improve golf swings and overhand throws.

Reformer Extension Upgrades

Tall clients? Need a little extra length? An extension upgrade adds an additional 6” to both the frame and the carriage on your Reformer. For additional support the extension also includes mid-rail legs. A great option for tall clients (6’4” +) or those with long torsos. 

Simply order your reformer and add an Extension Upgrade. If added to a Bundle, we will substitute the Extra Long Reformer Box with Footstrap in place of the regular Reformer Box.

A family of Pilates Reformers designed for every studio

Which Reformer is right for you?

Choosing just the right Pilates Reformer when there are so many compelling options can be challenging. Your practice, your clients—your potential clients, and your studio size all need to be taken into consideration when making this critical purchase.

Rehab V2 Max Series

The Rehab V2 Max Reformer is intended for Rehab practices or any studio that has a wider variety of clients. Built higher off the ground for easier mounts and dismounts, this Reformer is designed for working with mobility-challenged clients, as well as taller clients who find the shorter machines too close to the ground. As with all our professional Reformers, this machine is fully upgradable with a Vertical Frame and a range of accessory boards.

V2 Max Series

So much more than just a Reformer, this refined machine performs with its signature “whisper-quiet ride”. The V2 Max is higher off the ground than the SPX, which offers easier access for clients. A wider carriage at 24” accommodates larger body sizes. Considered the ultimate professional quality machine, this unit is ideal for both boutique and in-club Pilates studios where exceptional durability and programming expandability are paramount.

SPX Series

Weighing in at 128lbs, this is the most cost-effective entry-level professional Reformer we offer. This Reformer is a great choice for studios where space is at a premium (multiple units can be stacked away when not in use) but professional quality and performance is still needed. This model is built lower to the ground, with a narrower 22” frame to accommodate multi-use facilities.
