Quality Service

The gentlemen who installed my reformer where just that 'gentle'. They took extreme care with the equipment as well as the walls in my home.

Everything was functional when they left and they removed all of the packing materials from the house. Great job!

Elina Elite Reformer with Tower

It took a long time to come because of the pandemic but it was worth the wait. I love it and I'm enjoying regular workouts.

Every feature works perfectly on this high quality product.

Love ,love, love my reformer!

It took a long time to get here, but truly worth the wait. This piece of equipment is everything I hoped for and more. It is beautifully engineered and as good, if not better , than the Balanced Body I have used in the professional Pilates studio I attended prior to Covid . Regretfully it closed. But on a positive note I now can enjoy the same workout at home and on my own time. My husband is also becoming a fan. I rate it five stars- well worth the investment.

Wonderful piece of equipment

I've used a Pilates chair for three years in class and love the versatility of the device. There's a big bang for the buck for such a small piece of equipment. It's perfect for sitting in my guest room where I beckons me visibly whenever I walk down the hallway. I am impressed by the quality of manufacture of this device. I know it's studio quality and I know it will last at least as long as I do. One reason I ordered this specific brand, BTW, is because I can adjust the spring tension very easily from the front of the machine. I also want to say that I was surprised by how fast the chair arrived and the quality of its packing materials. The chair had not the slightest dent or scratch, all items were in the box and my husband was easily able to extract the chair. No set up required, another refreshing plus.

Peak Pilates reformer

So happy with this equipment
