Rated 5 out of 5 by bootsy 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!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Joujou The resistance on the band is very strong and unadjustable making it impossible for me or even for my pilates trainer to do some of the exercises on the dvd. Also the pace of the dvd is rather fast for someone like me who has to pace myself due to a spine injury. That said, it is a useful tool. It made me sweat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KarenCT 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by yogagirlmd great core workout
I ordered this product to try to increase the difficulty of my pilates work outs. It works! The resistance bands definitely add to the work out. I will continue to use it weekly. Great addition to my core strengthening.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SuzTCO It's a great idea but
I have been learning Pilates with a private instructor on the reformer and mat for 3 months now and I thought this would be a great way to augment my classes especially when I'm traveling or can't make it to the gym. I was very disappointed with the product. I've tried it half a dozen times to give it a fair shot and find the stiff and cumbersome to use. Also, perhaps different sizes might help for those of us over 5'5"? I'm 6'1" and I cannot achieve the proper form for pilates exercises with this piece of equipment. Sad to say its going back. Its a great idea but just needs more work.
