It’s simple!

  • Much testing is done on our Reformers before entering the Australian market.
  • Our machines are Robotic welded in Jigs. Not made by hand.
  • Currently we have European ISO approval all Align-Pilates Reformers.
  • We have a variety of testing machines which reproduce years of use within just a few months. This enables us to find issues very quickly and correct them before entering the market place.
Such testing includes:
  • Scuffing machine (upholstery wear);
  • carriage pulling (wheel, runner and spring wear);
  • weight testing (setting weight limits);
  • spring stretch (testing longevity) and
  • pressure testing for bolts and welds (prevents breaks).
  • Salt immersion (testing for rust potential)

When shopping for a Reformer:

  • Make sure everything is bolted and not screwed. (Beware of cheap wooden Reformers)  Many Australian business’s stock very cheaply made timber Reformers. They also make false claims that their timber models are stronger and sturdier than steel. Unfortunately their claims are false. Please beware as these products are dangerous.
  • Make sure the springs are Music Wire so the tension is even or you may do more harm than good.
  • Check the Warranty period carefully as many offer only 12 months maximum. Many claim to offer ‘Commercial Warranty’ but in fact is only a ‘home Warranty’.
  • We often are compared to the likes of Stott and Balance Body , however we have not tried to compete directly with these brands.
  • We have tried to stay with the traditional simple design which does cost you less up front but in the long run our Reformers are less mechanical and will have less long term issues.
  • Our C Channel design (like Stott) has proven to be less problematic as it uses half the amount of wheels.
  • Our rope adjustments are better than the cleat style but are simply mechanically driven so nothing can ever fail. ( No button Windows or remote keys, sorry.)
  • All our Reformers have satisfied the European ISO approval which is based on Strength , Stability and Safety. They are built strong , Very strong.
