Balanced Body® Announces New Reformer/Half Trapeze Combination

Sacramento, Calif. - June 27, 2002

Balanced Body, the world's largest manufacturer of Pilates equipment, has combined two popular Pilates machines to form one versatile, space-saving unit. The Reformer/Half Trapeze Combination offers all of the features of the company's Studio Reformer® combined with the essential elements of Balanced Body's Trapeze Table, or Cadillac.

“Our Reformer/Half Trapeze Combination is ideal for professional or home studios where space is an issue,” said Ken Endelman, Balanced Body's founder and chief executive officer. “This machine not only offers versatility for Pilates workouts, it's also very easy and safe to use. Conversion from the Reformer to the Half Trapeze unit can be completed quickly, and the stability of the vertical frame enables people to move through their exercises with confidence that the equipment will support them.”

The Reformer/Half Trapeze offers several unique features, including:

  • Easy conversion from Reformer mode to Trapeze mode. The Reformer carriage is recessed within the wood frame, so the Trapeze Table mats can be dropped in without turning over or removing the carriage.
  • Twin Trapeze Table mats can double as floor mats. The double mats feature non-skid feet to hold them firmly together in place on the floor.
  • The vertical frame is through-bolted to the Reformer at the end and sides with custom-engineered L-brackets, ensuring superior safety and stability.

Prices start at $3995.
