Peak Pilates® casa™ Reformer
Katia T. (Chula Vista, US)

The reformer is excellent! Love the model which is really good price and it works perfect, just like a studio reformer

Good Machine

I am quite pleased with the Private Pilates Reformer/Caddy combo. It's well built, was easy to assemble, and had a must faster shipping time than other brands right now. It's working great and easy to convert. I dislike the particular caribiner clips it comes with (super clunky and hard to open and close quickly), and needed to add clips to the pulley cords for quick changes between foot loops and handles, so that was a bummer, but it was easy to buy replacements at a local hardware store for around $20. No other issues!

Great machine, great experience

Bought the Casa after several years of another home machine. No comparison! It's well built, quiet, and easily adaptable to my needs. It was shipped sooner than expected and customer service was quick to respond to my inquiries. Highly recommend.

I finally got a reformer!!

I just love my new reformer and reformer!!! I've been waiting years for this and I'm so grateful for CASA helping me with it!!

Best Home Gym Addition

I love this reformer! When 2020 hit, the only gyms that stayed open in my area were pilates studios. I had always wanted to try reformer workouts, so I jumped at the chance to fit it into my schedule. Once I was sold on the activity, I began to research machines. I am so happy with my choice! This is a fantastic reformer with great springs, solid construction, and smooth glide. The only heads-up I would give is that if you are used to studio machines, this one does lie lower to the ground. However, after getting adjusted to that one difference, I have been having SO MUCH fun with it!
