Since I received my reformer I have used it everyday with no issues or problems. I am very satisfied with the product. My 5 year old grandchild watched as I used the reformer. She is very active and after a few days she wanted to use the reformer for legs. With guidance and making sure she didn’t hit the stop she really likes doing legs.
I had a cheaper reformer years ago, and I enjoyed that, however I was looking to get back into pilates and wanted a higher quality reformer. However, I'm not a pilates guru, so I didn't need something with every bell and whistle, so the more expensive reformers just seemed unnecessary for what I wanted to do at home. I kept coming back to this one; good price, nice looking, and good reviews. I'm so glad I did! It was very easy to put together, has a VERY smooth carriage, and all of the items that are adjustable are easily adjustable. For someone who wants to do pilates at home and wants a solid at home reformer, this is perfect.
Some tips: the box is GIGANTIC! It really is at least a 2 person job to get the box in the house. I was able to assemble the reformer by myself, but it might have been a bit easier to have a second person for the job, especially when you care attaching the legs to the frame.
Shipping: I had to arrange to have it delivered at a specific time. So if you don't work from home, you may need to figure out how you're going to be home when the delivery people show up. I had heard other people who waited several weeks for their reformer to be delivered, but I'd say mine was to me in under 2 weeks from when I ordered it.
I have ZERO regrets ordering this reformer. I actually look forward to exercising every day now.
Very sturdy reformer. Easy to assemble. The spring colors are a big different from Balanced Body reformers, so online class spring color changes don’t translate exactly. Also - the jump board has not arrived yet - back ordered (which I didn’t know when I ordered).
