“I saw a limitation on the amount of tension that Pilates provides because it wouldn’t really also give a good strength-building workout,” explains Pilates Power Gym inventor Kevin Abelbeck. “Pilates equipment [reformer] is basically a platform that moves on a linear track. So what I had to do was to come up with a way to increase the tension other than just with the springs… I made an incline.”
As a result, both men and women can get an intense workout on this type of Pilates reformer with its multiple levels of height elevation. In addition, four different tension bands also increase the variation in strength-training and resistance available in your workout.
“The four bands are four different tensions, so you have the combination of these four which can be used for every exercise,” Abelbeck continues. “You have a great deal of variability in the amount of tension you can provide. The idea is that you can make it suitable for everybody.”
