Pilates Instructor Sinead Frisby this week opens the City’s first Reformer Pilates Studio at Precision Pilates at the Six Cross Roads in Waterford.
Sinead opened Precision Pilates Studio in late 2014 and is delighted to unveil a brand new ‘Reformer Studio’ at the school. Reformer Pilates involves using specialised equipment which builds strength and conditions muscles in the body which cannot be done through mat classes to the same extent.
Invented by Pilates founder Joesph Pilates the reformer is a bed-like frame with a flat platform on it, called the carriage, which rolls back and forth on wheels within the frame. The carriage is attached to one end of the reformer by a set of springs. The springs provide choices of differing levels of resistance as the carriage is pushed or pulled along the frame. Body weight and resistance of the springs are what make the carriage more or less difficult to move therefore creating a unique challenge for each user dependant on their strength and flexibility.
Commenting on the opening of her Reformer Studio, “I’m delighted to bring a Reformer Pilates Studio to Waterford City. Pilates is much more than just an exercise regime, it is a true overall body workout. A Reformer Pilates session offers a huge list of benefits to its users from the more basic but hugely beneficial day to day benefits like better posture and increased strength to increased fitness, flexibility, coordination, and balance. Pilates mat classes are the basis of all Pilates movement and provide the ultimate foundation for improving strength and flexibility, however the Pilates Reformer offers a great challenge for those who wish to take the next step in their Pilates tuition. ”
