Thank you for my beautiful custom upholstered STOTT SPX Max Plus Reformer!
I ordered the bundle with the tall box to get some additional height of the floor. The bronze upholstery turned out beautifully and all at no extra cost!

I cannot say enough about how much I now prefer STOTT PILATES machines
After teaching for many years at a studio outfitted with professional Balanced Body reformers, I went out on my own, and after discovering the STOTT PILATES Professional Reformers, I decided to buy one for my business. I cannot say enough about how much I now prefer STOTT PILATES' machines. They are beautiful to look at (for a piece of exercise equipment), and in particular, the precision gear bar enables endless options for resistance training and rehab work. The design enables me to make subtle tension adjustments quickly and easily, and as a result, clients begin to understand and appreciate the work even more. The Cardio-Tramp Rebounder is equally fabulous. I used to teach mat classes incorporating mini-trampolines with Pilates based mat-work, and clients loved it because it was fun and just so damn hard to do. So I was thrilled to order the Cardio-Tramp Rebounder for my SPX Reformer, and am having a blast with it.
I love it!
The SPX Max Reformer is small enough to move around fairly easily and isn't too bulky a piece of equipment. I'm rather petite so it suits my needs just fine and I can practice just about all the reformer repertoire on it. For a larger woman or a man it might feel a tad small or tight (mostly narrow), but honestly for the most part it feels just like a regular reformer only closer to the ground...I should also add that I really like how some exercises actually feel more safely performed on the SPX Max - no fear of falling off or losing your balance when doing certain exercises - specifically ones that require balance or where there is less base of support. Easy to step on and off of when doing standing exercises as well.
My Reformer Journey
I decided to buy my own reformer after more than 10 years of learning and practicing Pilates, and I am so happy with the V2 Max Plus Reformer with Vertical Frame! The equipment is sturdy, quiet and well made. I started doing Pilates more than 10 years ago when my orthopedic doctor suggested I try this regime to rehabilitate my spine, I had a slipped disc. I worked with a STOTT PILATES® Certified Instructor during my rehabilitation. When looking to sign up for an instructor course, he pointed me towards STOTT PILATES. In 2015 I became certified. It has been a long journey but now that I have this Reformer, I look forward to getting stronger and helping others do so as well.
The Most Durable Pilates Equipment
Many years ago the Pilates center I was managing in Mexico decided to purchase Merrithew™ equipment and STOTT PILATES® training. After working with this equipment and seeing how durable it was, I knew that going forward, this is the only brand I would buy. Purchasing Merrithew™ equipment is worth the investment. I should know, 10 years ago, I purchased my own SPX Max Plus™ Reformer and to this day it is working as good as new. The Vertical Frame offers an amazing mix of exercises that I enjoy every day. With a little practiced care and cleaning, this equipment will last a life time. Thank you Merrithew™ for your commitment to quality!
Got my new ELINA reformer and I'm very pleased
I work out on it every evening before going to bed. It is so relaxing, so challenging and so effective! I'm 54 and suffer with back issues and arthritis. My regular workouts are helping relieve the arthritis pain (that's the reason I do it before bedtime) and strengthening my core muscles to help with back issues. I see this as an investment because it is an exercise routine made to age with. The quality of the AeroPilates equipment is amazing. The carriage is very smooth, the frame is super sturdy and it's very versatile allowing a large number of exercises you can perform. I am planning on buying the box and pole that go with it to work more on my lower back. Buy it! You will love having your own reformer at home.
I bought the reformer to keep me moving at home
I'm in my mid 60's and I'm very happy with my new versatile convertible Elina Cadillac-Reformer
Thanks, the STOTT reformer is awesome!
