What is a reformer?

Core Kensington features the highest quality STOTT PILATES® equipment on the market. Created by Joseph Pilates, the Pilates reformer is a bed-like frame with a flat platform on it called the carriage, which rolls back and forth on wheels within the frame and works with spring tension resistance.
