What is the difference between the STOTT SPX At-Home Reformer and the SPX Max?

At-Home ReformerPilates Home Reformer

Fairly often are we receiving questions here at CASA Pilates Direct about the difference between the STOTT At-Home SPX Reformer and the STOTT SPX Max.

Both machines are modern aluminum Pilates reformers that are designed to be low to the ground and lightweight so that the equipment can be moved easily. The main differences between these two models from STOTT by Merrithew are the spring options, the rope system, the option to upgrade with a vertical frame, and the warranty.

Here are the main differences:

At Home SPX Reformer

  • A great value for the bundle with Reformer Box with Footstrap, Padded Platform Extender, Metal Roll-up Pole and instructional DVDs featuring over 250 exercises
  • No choice of springs package- standard package of 4 x 100% springs and 1 x 50% spring.
  • Traditional rope system- the ropes are tied and tightened with a star knob. It is more difficult to get the ropes to the same length.
  • No option to add a vertical frame.
  • SHould blocks are not removable.
  • Carriage height is 10 inches.
  • Elevated option of 16 inches available.
  • This reformer can only be used in a residential environment and not in a commercial facility or the warranty becomes null and void.
  • Manufactured in China.
  • Immediate shipping available.

STOTT SPX Max Reformer

  • High precision springs package ( 3 x 100% springs, 1 x 50% spring, 1 x 25% spring)The high precision package allows for more flexibility in the resistance and strength of the exercise and user.
  • Retractable rope system - ropes can be adjusted easily with recoiling rope reels –no knots or ropes to untie.
  • Removable shoulder blocks.
  • Vertical frame option.
  • Carriage height is 9 inches.
  • Raised option available.

What a difference!

I love this Reformer, it's smoother and quieter than my last one. I also have noticed that the springs are much better than the ones I would buy for my last Reformer. I'm so glad I was able to purchase this equipment

Amazing Reformer

This reformer is wonderful! The machine itself is not only stunning to look at, but also so incredibly well build and glides like a dream. Everything you need to get started is included. Delivered in box, but super easy to assemble. Would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to add reformer pilates to their workout routine.
Only negative thing was that delivery took a while and customer service did not have accurate delivery date information, but after delivery I can say it was worth the wait.

My Favorite Thing in the world !!

I love my Pilates Reformer!!The quality of the reformer is impeccable ! It glides so smoothly and is so beautiful!
It is the best present I have ever received!!! I would recommend to this reformer to everyone!!

Love my new Elina Elite Reformer

I just LOVE my new Elina Elite Reformer-it is the best!!! It works just beautifully, high-high quality. It was extremely easy to set-up when it arrived. Doing reformer Pilates in my home has been a game changer for me and I love it. Shipment took some time but was worth it. Working with everyone at Casa was also a fantastic experience. I also ordered the stability chair. Thanks so much!

MVE Reformer

Excellent quality, very smooth glide. The double loop straps are a real plus. I purchased without being able to see or test the model and there are a couple of features I’d like changed in next iteration; the foot bar mounts from the inside and doesn’t clear the platform making it unsafe to mount for certain exercises and the connectors for the straps & pulleys frequently come unscrewed. The jump board is a couple of inches too short for my body & doesn’t adjust. Long- short box handles can rub on certain exercises. White glove service was excellent. Great value for the price would definitely recommend.
