At home pilates got some SERIOUS upgrades this year! The microformer dropped mid-2020 to the public. It’s a smaller version of the massive megaformer you are used to seeing in Lagree fitness studios + but still packs the same fiery punch!
In this shrunken down version there are some seriously big pros + a few cautions you will want to know about before buying.
Let’s start with what we love about this pocket sized punch to butt corners:
- SIZE: Without handlebars, you can store this baby under your bed OR have it out full time in your home gym, leaving enough room for weights or a Peloton.
- GOOD SPRING TENSION: Even though this thing is small, the springs provide you with PLENTY of tension to make all your workout dreams come true.
- ENTERTAINING INSTRUCTION FROM HOME: @pilates___club offers the best microformer classes out there! Carolynn & Chelsea are funny + real AF, which makes the classes go by so much quicker!
Now to the gritty part. What you need to know.
- HANDLEBARS: if you are going to invest in the handlebars only buy one pair! Because you can remove them, they are unstable and quite frankly a lot of exercises on the feel like SH*T. You can do most exercises without them!
The best attachment to get for the microformer are the microformer straps. Snag TWO, one for the front platform and one for the carriage. The straps allow you to anchor your feet, which makes exercises like bear + skating feel so much more effective!
