The Pilates apparatus in our studio is a mix of the finest brands of Authentic Pilates Equipment. Most of the equipment in the Halifax location is Pilates Scandinavia, supremely crafted equipment by Pilates teachers Elisabet and Fredric Prag, in Sweden. We also have a number of pieces by Gratz, the only brand ever used by Joe Pilates. Joe Pilates was known for giving the Mat work as homework for his clients. His focus in the studio was on the use of the apparatus to aid in proper alignment and movement patterns. The springs on the apparatus provide feedback that both challenge and assist, providing resistance and support to the body in all exercises.
The large, whole-body focused apparatus are the Universal Reformer, Cadillac, Electric Chair, Wunda Chair, Arm Chair, Ladder Barrel, Spine Corrector, Low Barrel, and Pedi Pole. We have multiple of each of these apparatus so that each client may experience them in their group sessions and private lessons.
The smaller pieces of equipment are used to help your body achieve better form in many exercises and include: magic circles, toe correctors, the foot corrector, neck stretcher breath-a-cizer, sandbags, hand weights, and push up handles. Here at Precision Pilates we also have several of the original TensatonerTM designed by Brooke Siler.
