What is Equipment Pilates?
As the name suggests, equipment Pilates uses specialized fitness equipment designed for Pilates. The primary piece of equipment used is called a ‘reformer’. Invented by Pilates founder Joseph Pilates, the reformer resembles a bed-frame with a flat platform atop (called a carriage). This platform rolls on wheels forward and backwards. Underlying springs provide varying levels of resistance as the carriage is pulled or pushed along the frame by your legs or arms.
At Wild and Woolly Pilates we also use other equipment such as the Wunda Chair, Cadillac, Tower, Spine Corrector, Ladder Barrel, Ped-o-Pul, and Arm Chair. All designed by Joe Pilates himself!

That said, given the added resistance of springs, equipment Pilates is an often-ideal choice for those who exercise regularly or who have achieved some level of fitness.
