The jury is still out
I received my Reformer last week and am encouraged by the reviews I've read here because I am 72 years old, overweight and feel that this Pilates machine may be my last chance to improve, even if it is only a little.I do have several suggestions but I am not sure where to "deliver" them. They concern putting the machine together (for example it would be beneficial to have a visual putting together on the DVD). Again, for a DVD, a visual as to how to adjust pulley cords and perhaps a height chart i.e. if you are 5 foot one inch then cords should measure "x". Also a segment for REAL beginners, those beginners who can't hop up and down without taking a minute or two (which makes following DVD One difficult because I'm still getting to a seated position as Marjelin is attaching the cords and proceeding with the exercise).Also a list of the exercises a beginner would be expected to do and the length of time (i.e. do these 20 exercises for one week then add...or do these 10 exercises for two weeks and then add...).It wouldn't hurt either for them to show on the DVD (let's call it "Getting Started") how to fold the machine (I missed the bit where they printed keep at least one cord attached and presumed that all cords should be unattached, not wanting to put undue pressure on the cords...I was wrong!)I like the machine and I like the routine I have put together for myself after researching it and using the first DVD - made myself an Excel spreadsheet with the cord information and reminder tips so that I could move at my own speed. But I'm retired, I have the time to do these things - surely there must be younger, working overweight people who don't have the time and who could benefit from these additions to the DVD????If you've read this far, thanks, and wish me luck!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

AeroPilates- 5-cord machine:LOVE IT!!!
By McCafe lover!!!
from Moncton,New Brunswick
Previously owned the 3-cord AeroPilates;it gave me a great workout;but this new 5-cord is the BOMB! The seating area is wider;the machine has the option of more attachments. I'm loving the trampoline;great workout for the tummy area! Just ordered the Ballet Bar,as I know it will add a new dimension to my workouts! Using the Stand with the machine;great addition! I am in my mid sixties. Maggie(Shediac,N.B.)
Aero pilates Reformer is a winner
from Cambridge, Ontario
The Pilates machine,stand and headrest I ordered came very fast. They were easy and quick to assemble,well made and impressive to look at. My only problem is getting the ropes to the right length for me..I'm five feet tall and can't seem to get them where they should be. I think this is a machine I will get good use of..as I get older my joints get stiffer and I have less mobility than I'd like.
Thank you for this product. I have had the three cord for a number of years . I always feel better when I go back to using it. I am 67 and hope I can continue to use this machine for many more years! Helps my golf game too! Thank you again! Kathy in Winnipeg ps gets me through the Winnipeg winters!!
I will buy this product again and again!

I am replacing my older model (3 cord pilates)with this new product. I must have been the first one ordering last night and cant wait to get it home. I am 71 yrs old and have used my machine for the last 4 years, love it!!!My weight,body shape and bone density have improved and the exercises are enjoyable and as easy or challenging as you want to make them. The rebounder is fantastic as I neither run nor jump at my age any more and this gives me the opportunity to do this even in our Canadian Winter!
