floor, standing straight up, lunging forward or doing variations on the push-up.
Learn more than 75 exercises that can be performed on the Pilates Chair.

Once again, adjustable spring resistance is the key to challenge with this
specialized piece of fitness equipment. While pressing down on the step with
arms or legs, the much of the stabilizing work is up to the torso - it's harder
than it looks. This apparatus activates the lower back, buttocks, shoulder,
transverse abdominals and pelvic region and heightens neuromuscular
coordination. From a rehabilitation perspective, the Pilates Wunda Chair or
Stability Chair is particularly effective for stretching and rebalancing muscles
that have been strained or injured.

The Cadillac (also known as the Trapeze Table) is one of the most effective

apparent and it continues to be a bridge between exercise and physical
