The term pilates was named after the German gymnast and fitness pioneer Joseph Pilates. He determined that our modern lifestyle, bad postures and poor breathing are the cause of our poor health. Joseph developed a number of exercises and machines to correct poor posture, strengthen the body and bring us back to good health. The Wunda Chair was one such invention. It has since been adapted by Pilates trainer Carrol Krief who turned it into a full body Malibu Pilates workout for the home.
The Malibu Pilates Chair uses spring resistance to tone and strengthen your muscles. The Pilates Chair comes with three DVDs including the 20-Minute Malibu Pilates Makeover, the Total Dream Body Sculpting Workout and the Cardio Fat Blaster DVD.
The Malibu Pilates Chair is made with real springs to give you a great workout because it requires control and strength to do the exercises properly. The Pilates Chair will fold flat just like a folding chair. There’s no need to have bulky equipment taking up all your available space. Simply fold it up and pack it away.
Included with the chair are three DVDs with all the exercises you need to give you a total body workout. The 20-Minute Malibu Pilates Makeover includes a 10 minute tutorial to get you started doing the exercises with proper form and shows you how the chair works. The Dream Body Sculpting Workout is a challenging 45-minute circuit that will get you toned up and slimmed down in no time. The Fat Blaster DVD is a fast tempo routing designed to get your heart rate up so you’ll drop the pounds fast.

“I find this chair to be sturdy and made of quality materials. It folds up fairly easily and does indeed fit under my bed. I love it. I just ordered the sculpting handles from HSN because I think they’ll add to the workout and make the chair more versatile.”
“Five years of working out and a significant weight loss that I have had, this chair by far is well worth the money! It teaches you to use the transverse abd muscle like you never have used it before. What a world of difference my workouts are now after adding in this chair!”
“The results are amazing and it does not take long before you see the benefits. Here I come in my new hot bikini thanks to Malibu Pilates my 46 year old body is transforming!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Overall the feedback has been quite good. There are a few points to consider before you purchase the chair. Firstly the range of motion of the pedals is slightly less than a studio quality chair. Secondly the springs don’t appear to be interchangeable so you won’t be able to increase the resistance of your workout.
The Malibu Pilates Chair is an ingenious device that will give you a full body workout. The included DVDs will help you get started and give you a number of routines to tone and sculpt your body. With the Malibu Pilates Chair you’ll get a great workout at a fraction of the cost of a studio quality chair.
