The newest Reformer from STOTT PILATES® raises the bar on their equipment, literally. The V2 Max Plus™ Reformer, whichV2Max Plus Reformer - STOTT Pilates Reformer STOTT PILATES® co-founder Moira Merrithew recently debuted in New York, features the familiar carriage and frame of a traditional Reformer/Cadillac duo, with one important distinction: The vertical end of the machine—which anchors the roll down and push through bars—has two adjustable pulleys affixed to it, enabling users to adjust the height of the straps.

With a simple slide of the pulleys, instructors are able to change the tension from knee-height to several feet in the air, changing the intensity and in some cases musculature needed for a certain movement. Merrithew has developed a new sequence of exercises and modifications for the machine, available on a safety and instructional DVD, which is included with purchase. The V2 Max Plus™ Reformer retails for $5,795. Attendees of this year’s PMA conference will be able to test out the machine in-person at the Stott Pilates booth.
