I'm a huge fan of Pilatesology and find them far superior to PilatesAnytime or any other Pilates streaming site. In addition to the workouts, they have the "observe & learn" videos that break down...

The used Merrithew Reformer seems overpriced for $1900, since it's not a studio model. If you can get it for $1000 or less it would be a good deal though. I tried one similar to it at a sporting...

I definitely don't recommend buying a Reformer if you've never used one. If it looks like a "good deal", it's most likely junk - Reformers from reputable manufacturers like Gratz, Peak,...

Pilatesology, in my opinion, is far and away the best Pilates streaming site. Every instructor on it is classically trained, most of them directly with Romana Kryzanowska, and a few even with Joseph...

I'm more hungry and crave unhealthy foods when I'm stressed, so any exercise that lowers my stress levels helps keep my appetite and cravings in check. For me, that exercise is Pilates (Pilatesology...

I prefer to do them every other day, but that's just to avoid boredom/burnout; they're gentle enough to do every day if that's what you want. FWIW, my current routine is alternating Pilates with...
