About this deal

The Reformer is a piece of equipment which has a gliding platform or ‘carriage’ attached by strings to the body of the reformer. It allows for the extension needed in the lumbar spine and the anterior tilt in the pelvis, thereby giving the abdominal muscles what they yearn for – full range, elongation, and forceful contraction. On the other hand, the muscles benefit from the stretching to which they are constantly subjected, granting great flexibility to the whole body. Gwen continually develops her expertise by investing her time into learning the latest techniques and treatments; this is evidenced in her qualifications and courses as listed below. As if that were not enough, Pilates also helps those who suffer from certain types of injuries, especially in the knees, being able to recover before them.

The Hog / Back-Stretcher - BackBaller

The Hog programme is a Pilates programme great for classes rehab or, 1-2-1 an entire programme on flexibility, stability, balance, power and strength. After my second child, I developed a spinal problem which I recovered from by embracing Pilates to stabilise and strengthen my core. The Hog is a multi-functional piece of equipment which not only improves core stability but can be used to release trigger points on the spiky side up then turned over it becomes a balance board to improve balance.

Spinal decompression lumbar/dorsal exercise: Simply lie on the Back Stretcher (with your lumbar or dorsal region over the stretcher) for 5 minutes, once to twice a day to stretch out your back and chest.

Myofascial Trigger Points are painful spots in the muscle associated with taut bands of muscle fibres that are felt when light pressure is applied.

Multi-functional stretcher for core abdominal workouts, balance, and spinal and general stretching exercises. This exercise acts as if it were an analgesic, providing the affected part with the mobility that it needs to gradually recover. The Fit4Life team of specialist instructors safely train over 370 members each week at our fully equipped Studio; we offer over 30 Pilates classes weekly for Beginners through to Advanced, as well as specialist classes for recovery and the older adult. When doing sit-ups place the Back Stretcher under the lumbar spine and your bum creates this beautiful environment for the abdominals to move through their full and available range of motion.

A Trigger Point Pilates class combines Pilates’ core moves and applies clinical Myofascial principles to help alleviate chronic pain conditions. Some of these include Trigger Point Pilates, Hog Training Pilates, Spine Safe Pilates, Pelvic Floor Pilates and Postural Corrective Exercises.

I think training is the best way to improve our sleep, mental health, confidence and energy levels - training has helped me in the past with many of these! The Hog is the most versatile, portable and affordable piece of equipment for both instructors on the move and studios alike. Unless stated otherwise, they are general exercises only and are not aimed at treating any specific cause of pain or condition. Regular use has been shown to result in improved core strength, an increased range of motion and flexibility, better posture and a reduction in muscular aches, pain and discomfort.
