Reformer Trapeze Combination™
Two extraordinary machines in the space of one.
The Pilates Reformer Trapeze Combination™ from Balanced Body is ideal for single practitioners, home use and any setting where space is limited.
It combines a complete Studio Reformer® with a Trapeze Table, – a deluxe machine with top-of-the-line features and functionality that requires no more floor space than a Reformer. Originally created by Balanced Body® for Marika Molnar in 1994.
We are pleased to introduce recent improvements for the Reformer Trapeze Combination that we think you’ll love.
- Stainless steel frame: the canopy frame is now built of stainless steel instead of chrome. You will love its sleek look that it is smooth and easy to maintain. It is also resistant to chipping, pitting, corrosion and discoloration, and its fabrication is more environmentally responsible.
- Slide System for the push-through bar: repositioning the bar is a fast, one-person job that will not interrupt the flow of your session. Bonus: it is quiet to use and maintenance-free.
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, twin mats lift off to reveal the Reformer concealed in the frame. Then just lift the risers, insert the shoulder rests and raise the footbar.
Note: Optional Face Rest requires factory-drilled mounting holes on your Reformer Trapeze Combination, which must be requested at time of ordering your new machine. Stock item: Strata® Rock Maple, black upholstery.

- a. 14” (36cm) — Standard height, great for all exercises including standing work and lunges, and for facilities with low ceilings.
- b. 18” (46cm) — Easy reach and less bending for instructors, and good height for older clients and wheelchair transfers.

Footbar & Springbar
We recommend the revolutionary Revo Adjustment System™. It gives you the greatest flexibility and enables you to create the ergonomically correct position for every user. The Revo combines two radically redesigned components: the locking footbar and the 5-position Springbar. The system easily adapts your Reformer to better fit the user’s size, range of movement and ability.
The Classic Footbar with No-Roll Springbar is also available.
