R8-Pro Pilates Reformer

CA$2,300.00

The R8 stands for Retro (8 wheel) as the Reformer has been designed to replicate many features of Joseph Pilates’s original “classic Reformers”. This includes the carriage and foot bar distances, carriage dimensions, spring bar positions, foot bar height, and Reformer height. Whilst the R8-Pro uses height-adjustable rope risers and our Silent Ropes instead of leather straps, the design ensures the pulley position closely resembles that of a classic machine. Despite these classic features, the R8-Pro is a contemporary Reformer which has been designed with 4 foot bar heights, including a flat position and many rapid adjustment systems.

Description

The R8-Pro is our new entry level light commercial Reformer launching in late 2023.

The R8 stands for Retro (8 wheel) as the Reformer has been designed to replicate many features of Joseph Pilates’s original “classic Reformers”. This includes the carriage and foot bar distances, carriage dimensions, spring bar positions, foot bar height, and Reformer height. Whilst the R8-Pro uses height-adjustable rope risers and our Silent Ropes instead of leather straps, the design ensures the pulley position closely resembles that of a classic machine.

Despite these classic features, the R8-Pro is a contemporary Reformer which has been designed with 4 foot bar heights, including a flat position and many rapid adjustment systems.

The R8-Pro comes with 4 Springs, but uniquely has the option (and space) for adding a 5th spring should you wish. It also includes our patented Rapid Change spring bar with 3 Spring Bar positions for quick and seamless carriage position adjustments. The R8-Pro ropes can also be quickly adjusted using our Pro Rope adjusters that conveniently sit behind the shoulder rests.

The R8 is our first Reformer in a “light commercial” category, meaning it’s ideal for both home studios or those commercial set ups with light usage. For a full list of differences, please refer to our Reformer Comparison Tool on our website, but please note that this Reformer cannot accommodate a Half Cadillac Tower. The R8 Pro warranty covers domestic usage and includes limited light commercial usage — up to 20 hours per week. This Reformer also has a user weight limit of 120kg. For a full breakdown please see the warranty.

This is an incredibly compact Reformer which does not sacrifice on quality or performance. You can free-stand the R8 Pro with an optional Jump Board, and it’s portable too with wheels to reposition or move, meaning it’s a great choice for a multi-purpose Studio.

Overall, the R8-Pro is the best value light commercial Reformer on the market. Its appreciation of classic Pilates Reformer geometry — combined with ease of use, longer travel, and a wider range of adjustments to suit different body shapes and sizes — makes this a great all round Reformer and a modern take on a classic theme.

Loved it

This reformer has truly changed my life. A game changer for all pilates enthusiasts!
February 20, 2024
What’s included in my R8-PRO Pilates Reformer?

The R8-Pro includes all Springs, Ropes & Handles to enable you to practice straight after the assembly of the Reformer.

What is the Rapid Change (RC) Spring Bar and how does it differ from a normal spring bar?

The Rapid Change RC Spring bar is the new patent pending Spring bar from Align-Pilates. A traditional spring bar is used in conjunction with a separate carriage stopped and this can take up to 12 actions to change on a 5 spring reformer. The RC spring bar features integral carriage stoppers and is adjusted with the springs attached, it can be moved with one hand in a single action saving 3 to 11 additional actions every time you move the spring bar. The RC spring bar is a game changer in group reformer classes and it also prevents incorrect carriage stopper positions and the possibility of leaving your springs in a stressed position, which will reduce their life and performance.

Can I purchase my R8-Pro Pilates Reformer with a different leg height?

Leg extensions are sold as an extra accessory for the R8-PRO.

What are the benefits of the different leg heights on the R8-PRO Pilates Reformer?

There are multiple considerations about getting the right Leg Height for you and your clients. Whilst primarily it’s a preference, you may wish to consider people’s comfort on sitting on a low leg Reformer vs. those sitting on a machine higher off the ground. Furthermore, if you or your client will be doing standing exercises, the user may feel more at ease performing lower to the ground. As standard all A & C series Reformers are supplied in low-leg form, but each has the ability to raise in height, at any time, should you require.

Can the R8-PRO add a Full or Half Cadillac?

Unfortunately, you cannot add a Half Cadillac and Full Cadillac to the R8-PRO.

How will my reformer be delivered?
