Over the years the original floor work and reformers have grown to a system of over 500 exercises that can also be implemented with a bed-like apparatus that has a sliding platform with pulleys, cables, and springs, otherwise known as the Reformer. Use of your own weight and resistance from the springs is what creates total body strengthening without strain. Various positions can be performed on the Reformer, such as standing, lying down, sitting, kneeling, and jumping. All of these positions are specific to targeting large and small muscle groups. In addition to the whole body workout, Pilates exercises are designed to increase core strength, tighten abdominal muscles, and protect and strengthen the back.
