I was disappointed by this chair, it’s exceptionally bigger than other chairs I have used (balanced body, Gratz). This makes it difficult for exercises such as horseback and going down the front. The split pedal is interesting and doesn’t feel exceptionally sturdy. It was also really challenging to put together. The directions were not very intuitive and honestly, way to many pieces for this piece of equipment. I would have sent to back but I don’t want to take it all the way apart again. I am going to learn to live with it.
Great sitting box to go with the F3 reformer. With all the exercises I have to practice the sitting box was the best first accessory to get.
Buying this reformer was the best investment I’ve made in the last 2 years. Having a reformer at home has been amazing these past few weeks. It is exactly what I needed for teacher training. It’s very easy to move from room to room, but it is a bit heavy. Also very easy to assemble. Delivery was fantastic as well.
This is a very nice gondola pole. Solid hardwood. It has a semi-shiny lacquered finish and the brand name is tastefully engraved on one end. Not made in UK, which was surprising.
I purchased this Reformer/Tower combo and am very satisfied with how the Reformer functions. It has the smoothest glide that I've ever used. It's a very sturdy and the springs are of very good quality. I like the wide footbar and wide Tower. The push through bar is weighted which is nice because I think it gives you a little more feedback when doing Teaser. The only this I don't like about this Reformer is the foot strap setup. It's a cheap piece of material along with a cheap small fuzzy strap. Only time will tell if this Reformer holds up but after a couple of months of use I like it so far.
Perfect reformer for the price and shipping time! Came quickly and works like a GEM. Easy to assemble and medium priced. AWESOME for a home gym - I use it every single day! VERY sturdy like my studio reformers. I'm still getting used to the spring adjustments - which colors mean what - but I am very pleasantly surprised by the quality!
The quality of the reformer is great. My issue is that they didn’t reach out to me regarding when they’d be delivering (like customer service said they would). The package arrived within a week (totally unexpected as the time frame said 1 month). Furthermore, they used a 3rd party delivery service. This service wasn’t aware of any need to deliver to my door (I live on the second floor). The poor delivery man, well into his 50s, and I carried this 250lbs package up my stairs. I was so scared he was going to break a bone.
Imagine this- you run a private pilates studio and working 10-12 clients a day, and you are six months pregnant. I was in desperate need of more machines. I was in desperate need to run classes and not just privates. If anyone knows the pilates equipment industry, you know that all the machines for most companies are unavailable or the back order time is at least 20 weeks. I searched and scoured the internet and then finally came upon casa pilates equipment. I found exactly what I needed and I couldn't be more relieved. My business is thriving and the machines are spacious and luxurious. I was always contacting the company for all kinds of updates in the delivery and they were right there. My belly is growing and my am so relieved that I have more machines. thank you so much!
I visited the Casa Pilates showroom after making an appointment online. Cory did an excellent job of explaining the different Pilates reformers and equipment, options, current shipping ETAs and pricing. I was so comfortable and happy with the experience that I purchased the Reformer in the showroom. The Reformer arrived with the expected ETA and Cory was very accessible and helpful with questions during the entire experience. He personally came out to help with unboxing and assembling the reformer. The entire experience from beginning to set up of the Reformer was exceptional. I would highly recommend!
I love my ELINA PILATES® ELITE CADILLAC-REFORMER BUNDLE. I haven't had a chance to do everything but the quality of the product is amazing. It will be so fun to learn more with the Cadillac part. I am so happy with my purchase and would highly recommend the product. My only complaint was the lack of instructions in setting it up. There was a video, which was helpful but I would have liked written instructions as well.
I love this reformer! It has anything that I could wish for an affordable, sturdy reformer.
Love my new machine . Casa Pilates did a great job with the purchase & answering any questions afterwards . I am
Thoroughly enjoying having a reformer in my home studio
I am so pleased with my CASA reformer. It feels and performs like a the reformers I’ve used at Pilates studios.
Extremely pleased with the Align Pilates ladder barrel from CASA Pilates. From the purchase, (made easy online), to the service support representative Kerri, who did an over-the-top job with a delivery problem generated by DHL, down to the design of the Ladder Barrel, construction directions (easy to follow). I couldn't be happier!
Editorial comments, if I may.
Joseph Pilates invented, multiple pieces of Pilates equipment (thank you Joseph), in my opinion, the ladder barrel and the Wonda chair are the paramount pieces of equipment for our bodies core, and for any studio to have for their clients. If you have a Ellie Herman spring wall with a push through bar . . . It is . . . . studio nirvana! The Pilates reformer is a versatile piece of equipment for the client and used extensively. However, my preference for Pilates routines and exercises are the "Wonda Chair", Ladder Barrel, Spring Wall, Mat Work, as well as a TRX routine!
It suits my at home workout needs perfectly. While it’s a little heavy—it folds up nicely.
The Align foldable reformer is an excellent reformer that provides the same quality as larger professional reformers. The carriage and straps glide so smoothly and all of the attachments fit perfectly with the system. It is so nice to have my own portable reformer that has a small footprint. The system was so easy to set up and has run perfectly since I started to use it. Also, CASA's customer service has been exceptional. This reformer is well worth the purchase for a pilates devotee.
Great Reformer!!!!! Easy to unfold and fold back up. Yes, it’s heavy but totally manageable. Only complaint is the medium springs are easy. I may order an extra heavy spring. We’ll see.
This is an excellent apparatus! As big of a fan as I am of the classic, this reformer is the perfect blend of the classic (with some wood) and a more modern version (adding the metal)! It looks contemporary and sleek and beautiful! Aside from its look, its function is perfect. You absolutely get the feel of a studio reformer with one exception; the carriage itself seems a bit shorter than others I have used. That aside, it is sturdy and quiet and of amazing quality. Assembling it took no time at all as it comes basically built except for adding on the legs, shoulder blocks, and risers and ropes. I was able to assemble it in under an hour and I am SO glad I chose this one. I would highly recommend this reformer to anyone seeking to build their home studio with a modern look!
I recently received my CADILLAC-REFORMER COMBO BUNDLE. It is top of the line quality! Even better than some of the studios in town. Casa's customer service was also outstanding!
Received the combo chair with in a month's time- think I got lucky. I Like everything about the chair - it is light weight -which I wanted. As an instructor I just have to sit on it when client is working on the floor using pedals. It does not transition from single pedal to double pedal easily. It needs to have a quicker more efficient mechanism.
This is a functional work of art that I will be able to use for the rest of my life. This is all I need. My husband has a room dedicated exclusively for exercise equipment. I have a small corner and can do more in that corner than I can in the exercise room.
Delivery was okay. I had no warning or tracking information. The delivery called to say they had something to deliver, but didn’t know what they were delivering. If I had some tracking info, then I would have known it was the machine. The assembly was very easy to schedule; assemblers we’re prompt and courteous. It didn’t take long to assemble either. The machine is very good quality. I think it’s nicer than the ones at my gym.
If you have space issues, I highly recommend this reformer without sacrificing quality. Very well made and easy to fold and store when needed.
