Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 40 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use for a Pilates Newbie Even though I'm Petite (5'4") and pretty new to Pilates, I found this Dvd workout easy to use from the get go. I'm flexible in some parts but not all, especially my arms - can not reach back yet with the band. But I try to use the workout at least twice a week and it has gotten easier since I bought it a month ago. I did do Pilates at a sports club a couple of times and have done yoga. But doing this at home has helped me with my endurance. I have RA, FM and other autoimmune illnesses, that make it difficult to go to gyms and maintain memberships. So doing these workouts at home is a very positive thing. March 10, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by coreplus reformer I love the coreplus reformer. The exercises are just the right amount of difficulty. I can do most of the exercises but not the full amount of reps yet. The only problem I have with the coreplus reformer is that I"m tall (5'10") and some of the exercises feel like I'm stretching the bands farther than they should be stretched. For example, when I put the loops around my feet and hands and stretch my hands over my head!! Whoa!! I've noticed that with a couple of the exercises the women in the video's bands are slack before they stretch, whereas mine is already stretched before I even start the "stretch". Maybe they could make the reformer in different sizes like they do the balance ball. Not everyone is the same size!! January 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Core Reformer This product has proved to be an excellent addition to my collection of home fitness gear. I can also take the Core Reformer with me when I travel for work, which is quite frequent. I love the portability and the challenge of this product. An excellent choice. November 20, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Finally found what works! I am 47 years old and I was in the worse shape of my life at 213lbs and only 5'2". My knees hurt, my lower back ached and I couldn't walk up one flight of stairs without being out of breath. In January 2011 I went to a wedding and I was appalled at the pictures of myself, I had enough...I had to do something. I started dieting but was afraid to excercise because of my bad knees, even walking was difficult. One day I saw the CorePlus Reformer Workout with Mari Windsor in the store and I thought let me try it since you do it laying down it won't bother my knees. That was the day my life changed...at first I could barely do any of the excercises but let me tell you...today is July 7th less then 6 months since that wedding and I have lost 54lbs, went from a size 20 to a size 10 and I am not only able to keep up with the CorePlus Reformer workout DVD but while Mari Winsor is talking and explaing the excercise I am doing 2 or 3 times the reps. I have never looked better, even when I was in college! But more importantly I feel so strong, so in control and so powerful, I have definition in my arms without adding bulky muscles, you can see beautiful triceps, I have gorgeous legs and I am wearing short skirts for the first time in 10 years! And I even bought a 2 piece bathing suit. My husband told me the other day he feels like he is having an affair on his wife...with his wife!! LOL!!! I have more energy than I'v ever had, I am more productive at work, with my family and my love life is better than ever. I finally found the answer for me, I watch my diet and do the CorePlus Reformer a minimum of 3 times a week. My knees and lower back no longer hurt, I even started jogging twice a week and I love it! Thank you Gaiam, thank you CorePlus Reformer and thank you Mari Winsor...Mari I feel like I know you personally, I love the last line in the dvd - it sticks in my head all day..."Be consistent, your gonna love the results" I do Mari...I love the results! <3 July 7, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the CorePlus Reformer I love the CorePlus Reformer! Since i got it in the mail 3-4 weeks ago I have enjoyed the exercises and regret when i miss a day. I like the set up that allows me to do legs, arms, or abs (or all 3) depending on how much time i have. i can feel it working on my muscles and already starting to see results on the tummy. Each movement is short and Mari Winsor gives you plenty of time to catch your breath and relax between each rep. i hope they create more dvds with extended workouts for the coreplus reformer. * at first i couldn't do everything the ladies in the video were doing, especially stretch the reformer completely over my head while laying flat on my back but with time i was finally able to do it today!!! ;) May 25, 2011

I bought the Core Reformer awhile ago and I love it but over time the DVD has become damaged and won't play anymore. Can I buy a replacement DVD? Or better yet, a download I can save to my hard drive?  Thanks!

Using the reformer for the first time,  one of the bands disconnected. From the ball joint.  I have tried to reconnect it, but the tubing is very thick and I have been unable to pass the tubing over the ball.
Please advise.

Answer: 
We cannot recommend reconnecting it as we cannot validate that the reformer will continue performing as designed. Please return it at the place of purchase or if located in the US/Canada, please contact customer service at 1-877-989-6321 so we can discuss options to exchange the item.

I have been training in a pilates studio with the reformer, etc., for about three months once a week. Now I want to continue on my own. I need help with choosing between the reformer and the total total toning set.

Answer: 
It really depends on what you are looking for. If you are trying to supplement existing classes I would go with the total toning set since you have access to a reformer in class. If you are discontinuing classes and you enjoy using the reformers I would go with the Core Plus Reformer and then eventually add the total toning set for variety. Resistance training trains muscles differently than weight training so I like to use them side by side.

Answer: 
Weight doesn't really matter with this product, however height could possibly be an issue. I have had complaints from ladies (over 5'8") who have troubles extending there arms above their head while holding the cords like the instructor does. You can still use it, you just might have to modify the movements a little bit.
