CenterLine® Reformer with Tower and Mat
Joseph Pilates’ original designs meet state-of-the-art craftsmanship.
Updated for 2017—now shipping!
The recently redesigned CenterLine® Reformer is available with a Tower and Mat system, all in the space of a Balanced Body® Reformer. Work in multiple planes of resistance, on a mat or moving platform, and from both sides of the Tower.
Purchase your Reformer and Tower together, or add a Tower to your Reformer later.
Balanced Body’s space-saving system offers flexibility, new programming concepts, and economical use of space.
How do Balanced Body products differ from others that look similar?
- Easiest conversion system available.
- To convert from Reformer to Tower, two lightweight mats fit over the carriage and on top of the frame. No need to lift, flip or turn the carriage.
- To convert from Tower to Reformer, just remove the mats, lift the risers, insert the shoulder rests and raise the footbar.
- Tower frame is stainless steel, engineered and built for stability. Its unique attachment system provides maximum stability and disperses the stress throughout the frame.
- Our Slide System for the push-through bar makes repositioning the bar a fast, one-person job that will not interrupt the flow of your session.
- Mats double as floor mats. Non-skid feet keep them firmly in place.
