Pilates is one of the rare workouts that provide a holistic approach to your fitness and well being. It makes sense why many who are already practicing Pilates at a studio want the flexibility to also do it at home.
Stamina Products have recognised this need and made the otherwise large-scaled equipments compact enough for use at home. The most popular of all Pilates equipment is the reformer. Over 250 Pilates exercises can be carried out on this one machine, so it’s no wonder why the reformer is also called the all-in-one exercise machine.
The reformer can be a bulky equipment to have at home but Stamina’s AeroPilates 700 Premier is streamlined yet large enough for a comfortable workout. It comes with a stand, neck pillow, cardio rebounder, and workout DVDs, which are added bonuses to help enhance your Pilates training.
There are basic features important to address in a reformer: the carriage, platform, resistance springs, and the footbar. The Stamina AeroPilates 700 Premier is designed with the user in mind and focuses on the functionality of these basic parts. The machine comes with 3-year frame and 90-day parts warranty and has:
- A larger, trapezoidal carriage and cushion for added support (tapers from 23” down to 21”, to 29”long)
- 24”wide footbar that is curved and wider than average
- Oversized patented Free-Form Cardio Rebounder that is 2”taller than standard
- Detachable head and neck support pillow for additional comfort and support
- Headrest with 3 adjustable positions with oversized high density foam shoulder pads for added support and comfort
- 2 workout DVDs: AeroPilates Level 1 Workout and AeroPilates Cardio Workout featuring Pilates expert Marjolein Brugman
- Full-colour workout wall chart
- 4 heavy-duty, elastic cords providing 4 levels of workout resistance
- Adjustable ropes, straps and hand grips

- Suitable for users up to 6’4” tall and maximum user weight of 300 lbs
- Folds and rolls for easy storage and transport
- Dimensions: 85” x 23” x 27” (L x W x H)
What Customers Are Saying
“The equipment itself is very sturdy and well made.”
“Wow – If you are looking for a reformer that comes close to a professional one- look no further- LOVE IT!”
Users were really happy with the quality and sturdiness of the AeroPilates 700 Premier. People found it easy to assemble, and the size and smooth movement of the reformer were extra thumbs ups. That said, although it is a good size for home use, a few users mentioned it was on the fuller/larger size of portable reformers and may need a semi-permanent docking place for it. One user thought that it gave a ‘grumbly’ noise as she moved up and down, but not to a bothersome point.
There is probably no piece of Pilates equipment more versatile than the reformer. When you plan to be performing exercises lying down, sitting up, standing, upside down, sideways and all thinkable positions on one piece of equipment, you will want a piece that is sturdy, strong, long-lasting, yet comfortable to work on. Stamina’s AeroPilates 700 Premier is that equipment, albeit being on the larger side if you want to travel with it.
