Frequently Asked Questions
Aside from the magic circle and Pilates reformer, there is still other Pilates equipment that provides you with a greater range of motion and develops your overall physical agility and strength.
- Pilates chair: Sometimes known as the Wandu chair offers more than 75 Pilates positions and some practitioners believed that’s how it got its unique name, Wandu. It’s a compact device that lets you develop your strength, balance, and flexibility. It was mainly designed to work on your legs and improve blood circulation around your body as well as enhance your cardio.
- Cadillac: The Cadillac is not a car but a suspended bed with a steel structure on it where the practitioner can hang in different positions using ropes and pulleys. It can be made of wood, steel, or semi-rigid mat. One of the first devices invented by the founder of Pilates, Joseph Pilates, the Cadillac Pilates Trapezium, is the perfect communion of the many traditional weight machines: the high pulley, high and low bench press, and the trapezius, all packed in one Pilates equipment.
- Ladder barrel: Also coined as the barrel, is the most straightforward Pilates equipment out there, and only uses your body weight to start the exercise. As its name suggests, the ladder barrel is a small ladder combined with a barrel using rails that can be adjusted to adapt to the user’s body length. Most barrels are made of wood and specifically designed to correct posture and focuse on the power centre, your core. It is the friend of novice Pilatos as the movements are easy to replicate and does not need a Pilates teacher’s coaching to know if you are doing the exercise the right way.
- Pilates mats: Mats are not optional but a necessity for Pilates practitioners, especially for exercises that challenge your balance and those that need to be done lying down flat on your back, sides, or tummy. Don’t just buy any mat, there are distinct differences between a yoga mat, an exercise mat and a Pilates mat. Pilates mats are thick, about the size of a pencil (3/8”) or the thickness of your comforter (1/2”), have slick surfaces, and are wider in size than yoga mats.
- Pilates resistance bands: If you have seen Pilates DVDs and observed in some Pilates studios in your area, you might have noticed that Pilates bands are ribbon-like elastic strips with varying lengths. Resistance bands made of rubber tubing are also available, but they are not barefoot friendly. As for ribbon Pilates resistance bands, they are flat, easy to manipulate around the body, and are much softer to the feel.
- Weights: Weights for Pilates practice are your dumbbells, ankle weights, or small-sized kettlebells. These small, light weights can give extra resistance to your Pilates routine.
- Pilates balls: Combining your Pilates moves with exercise balls can create a dynamic balance training that will surely bring you to grooving class. Your body will learn to endure the resistance brought about by your body and the Pilates exercise itself, practice posture stability, and improve your reaction time which are the key elements in gaining strength and flexibility. One of the best utilities of exercise balls in Pilates is abdominal work that can also be very monotonous and boring without the added challenge of the ball.
- Rubber roller: Rollers are used to massage the muscles during Pilates exercise. They can be instrumental in maintaining balance and strength in each posture. It makes you enjoy the session more since it provides a massage to the deepest muscles of your body and back. With the release of tension and muscle pain at every roll, you’ll be sure to have a satisfying and refreshing Pilates practice at home.
