Will Pilates be your next at-home
With the high costs for training and the pandemic limiting affordable

providers are growing.
Pilates is one of the best functional workouts popular among
celebrities and pro athletes alike. Now everyone can benefit from

Onyx Interactive just announced its campaign for pre-

January 18th on the IndieGoGo platform.
So why Pilates? Pilates is one of the
best functional workouts rooted in
exercises centered around a
machine called a "Reformer".
As Christian Jones, a Pro linebacker in the

as I thought, after just one Pilates workout."
So what should you look for in an at-home Pilates reformer workout brand? 1. Dual tension design
to allow a workout that is focused forward. 2. Space-saving, modern design. 3. Community that
builds success. 4. Best-in-class instruction that puts the fun in functional.
Most Pilates reformer workouts use
spring tension with handles to allow
for pulling and pushing exercises.
Tension from the front and rear of the reformer
allow for a focused forward facing workout so

takes time and practice to loop the handles back through the cleats and pulleys.

Hybrid Pilates reformers are great because

well as the new high-intensity, athletic style
movements that are seen in Legree and Solid
Core classes around the country.

platforms, compare them across the
board and chose the one that fits your
