This review is from: Stamina Aeropilates Reformer (Sports)
First, I've taken lessons and worked out on professional reformers. I also read every single review on this site and the other stamina reformers on here as of summer of 2016 as this is such an expensive purchase. Many exercises you'll get the same benefits from on this machine and it is substantially less expensive - but of course not of the same quality as the much more expensive (professional) models. I do not use the bounce attachment - I just use as a Pilates reformer. I also ordered the pullup bar and the box and pole so the total cost was about $700.00. You're still well below $1000.00 less than balanced body or Stott or even way more than $1000.00 below in cost. In hindsight, I'll probably actually buy a professional machine some day because this cured my lower back pain due to DDD and aging, too much sitting, etc., and it was time to switch to Pilates for me (I'm now a Pilates addict!). For now I'll stick with this Stamina machine, though, and it's working great... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A great new way to exercise., June 4, 2014

This review is from: Stamina Aeropilates Reformer (Sports)
Although the Pilates method of exercise was developed by Joseph and Clara Pilates about 100 years ago, to me it's all pretty new. I had heard about some of the mat exercises but not the Pilates reformer machine. I read about this just a few weeks back in a book called Pilates-2nd Edition which I read for a review. After reading about it and watching a few videos on YouTube I decided that this could be an interesting way to exercise and increase my core strength, balance, and muscle tone. I mostly just walk for exercise but this looked like a good way to create resistance in a little bit different way than lifting weights and doing other exercises. So I decided to do some research and see if I could find a machine that I could use at home and if there was one that I could afford. Many that I had seen cost thousands of dollars. After...

3.0 out of 5 stars 4 to 5 stars for beginners and people under 5'6", January 17, 2018

I like this a lot. The reason for 3 stars and not 5 is that to change out the rebounder to the stable bar, you have to unscrew two knobs, pull the rebounder out, put in the bar, and screw back in the knobs. No tools needed, but it would have been easier to just drop the bars in and out. Also, I am only 5'6" and it's just about 1-2 inches too short for me when I do full range of motion leg work, I can't extend my legs all the way without hitting the stopping point. Also, I can't bounce/jump as much as I want to on the rebounder, as I hit the "stopping" point. For most people, especially beginners, it will work fine. I have a large range of motion, strong legs, and have been doing Pilates exercises for a long time. So probably I needed a more robust reformer. I know I can add more resistance to avoid hitting the stopping point, but I want light resistance, multiple reps, as I'm going for flexibility and cardio, not bulking.
