Balanced Body


CenterLine™ Reformer

Joseph Pilates’ original designs meet state-of-the-art craftsmanship.


Created in collaboration with Amy Taylor Alpers and Rachel Taylor Segel of The Pilates Center in Boulder, CO, and meticulously tested for two years, the CenterLine™ equipment suite replicates the exact, smaller measurements Joe used on his original components – from carriages to springs to straps - upgraded with Balanced Body's unparalleled craftsmanship and materials.

Made to the same exacting dimensions as an original built by Joseph Pilates, the CenterLine™ Reformer is the smoothest, quietest ride on the classical market. Softer, textured carriage wheels provide increased carriage resistance. This facilitates and improves balanced joint and core activity, as does the size and smooth swiveling action of the strap handles. The Reformer also has curved shoulder blocks and a headrest that is flush with the carriage – just like Joe’s original.
