Align-Pilates A8 Pro Reformer


The Align-Pilates A8-Pro Pilates Reformer was brand new for 2020 and is the updated version of our previous flagship commercial Pilates reformer, the A2. The A8-Pro has a completely new runner profile and runs on 8 PU wheels (rather than the 4 nylon wheels of the preceding A2 models). This new platform offers a quieter ride, improved handling of cross loading forces, and reduced maintenance. This reformer has been designed for studio, rehab, or private use with the innovative design offering a host of easy adjustments to provide complete flexibility in use.

Maintenance Guide

Offering refined performance, extensive adjustability, a luxurious oversize carriage and the longest travel of any standard Pilates reformer on the market!

Now in it's fourth generation the A8-Pro is the result of over eight years of development.
There is a choice of 3 interchangeable leg heights, low leg (28cm) and rehab legs (64cm), making the A8-Pro a truly future proof and versatile investment.
The A8-Pro has been designed for both studio, rehab and private use, with the innovative design offering a host of easy adjustments to provide complete flexibility in use. The A8-Pro Pilates reformer can be stacked (though it is heavy) and has wheels for easy movement. 
Though the A8-Pro has some significant differences to its predecessor the A2 reformer, it is visually very similar and is the same size.
It also uses all the same accessories as the previous A2 models so that the A2 & A8 can easily coexist in the same studio.
The A8-Pro now benefits from off-centred shoulder rests to give a choice of shoulder widths, a new Gondola pole holder (Pole not included as standard)

“Having worked in the Pilates industry as an instructor and business owner for many years I can honestly say that I have not encountered better Pilates equipment than what is offered by Align Pilates. For adaptability, comfort, smoothness of action, durability and ease of maintenance the A2R reformer is the best reformer I have encountered and the Align Pilates Cadillac is it’s equivalent in Trapeze tables. This is simply the best value high end Pilates equipment available with delivery occurring within days of purchase (including expert assemblage!). I cannot recommend this equipment highly enough.”
