These Pilates profiles and plans focus on the Reformer, but the reality of how I would approach treating these women is I would also draw on Pre-Mat, Mat, Theraband and Physical therapy exercises to achieve the clients’ health goals and as fast as possible. I would truly want to encourage them to complete some of the non-Reformer assisted exercises at home. Also, while I am making note of recommended repetitions, I am omitting tension ranges because I really just need to see how a client completes each exercise, and adjust the tension on the fly.
