Adding the Jumpboard to our Reformers brings additional plyometric and cardio benefits to Reformer Pilates. The additional upper body exercises, along with the range of movement and control required, will challenge your muscles, body awareness and core control significantly more than a regular cardio class will.
Is it right for me?
Try Cardio Reformer if you’re enjoying your Reformer Pilates sessions but are looking for more variety in your routine, or for more of a cardio workout. This is not a class for complete beginners; you should have a few classes under your belt, be reasonably body-aware, and be looking to work harder and push yourself further.
What will it be like?
An unapologetically demanding workout. The cardio/plyometrics/pilates combination is every bit as tough as it sounds. The routine involves lots of jumping, kicking, pressing, lifting and rotating movements, all designed to challenge and fatigue. So expect to sweat, and feel your legs (and lungs) burning.
Results and benefits
The combination of Reformer Pilates, Plyometrics and Cardio is a great way to help you push past any plateaus in your training, while the extra variety will help keep you interested and motivated.
Expect to see improvements in muscle tone, strength and integration, core activation and cardiovascular endurance, along with better functional body awareness, and with it, reduced pain from any postural misalignments.
