Ron Fletcher Reformer™

Based on plans given to Ron by Clara Pilates.


"The Fletcher Reformer that Balanced Body® makes to my specifications is top-quality, superbly crafted with attention to detail."
–Ron Fletcher

Based on plans given to Ron by Clara Pilates.

Ron Fletcher was a dancer when he began his studies with Joseph and Clara Pilates in 1946. After Joe passed away, Ron continued to work with Clara. In 1970, he opened a Pilates exercise studio in Beverly Hills, attracting a Hollywood clientele and establishing Pilates on the West Coast.

Balanced Body has built custom Reformers for Ron since 1985, based on apparatus plans Clara Pilates gave to Ron. The Fletcher Reformer features adjustable latigo leather straps and handles, a pair of extension straps, a 3-position footbar, and four springs. It is hand-built to Fletcher's specifications, using Balanced Body's updated materials and mechanical techniques.

Classic in design, size and function, the Fletcher Reformer is slightly narrower than our Studio Reformer®.

Limited Lifetime Warranty.
