Align Pilates R8 Pro Reformer

$2,815.62
Description

The R8-Pro is our forthcoming light commercial Reformer model designed for entry-level user. 

As per all Align-Pilates Reformers, the R8 is constructed to meet International Standards (ISO) ISO20957-1 Class S Item (Rated for 20 hours per week and maximum user is 120 kg) This encompasses a limited lifetime Warranty of 5 years. See below for more information.

The designation "R8" is derived from the term "Retro (8 wheel)," indicating that the Reformer has been intentionally developed to emulate various aspects of Joseph Pilates's original "classic Reformers." The aforementioned parameters encompass the distances of the carriage and foot bar, size of the carriage, placements of the spring bar, height of the foot bar, and overall height of the Reformer. The R8-Pro incorporates height-adjustable rope risers and Silent Ropes instead of traditional leather straps. This design feature ensures that the positioning of the pulley closely emulates that of a conventional machine.

In spite of possessing traditional characteristics, the R8-Pro is a modernised Reformer that incorporates five different foot bar heights, including a flat position, as well as several efficient adjustment mechanisms.

The R8-Pro is equipped with four springs, but it has the distinctive feature of accommodating an additional fifth spring, if desired. Additionally, our product incorporates the revolutionary Rapid Change spring bar, which offers three distinct Spring Bar positions to facilitate efficient and smooth modifications of the carriage position. The R8-Pro ropes possess the additional feature of fast and easy adjustment facilitated by our Pro Rope adjusters, which are conveniently positioned behind the shoulder rests.

The R8 is our inaugural entry into the "light commercial" segment of Reformers, making it well-suited for both residential and commercial establishments with moderate levels of utilisation. However, it is important to acknowledge that this particular Reformer lacks the capacity to house a Half Cadillac Tower. The guarantee for the R8 Pro encompasses home utilisation and has a restricted provision for light commercial usage, namely up to a maximum of 20 hours per week. The R8 Reformer in question has a maximum user weight capacity of 120 kilograms 

The Align-Pilates R8 Pilates Reformer is characterised by its highly condensed design, while still maintaining a high standard of quality and performance. The R8 Pro can be autonomously positioned with an optional Jump Board, and it possesses the added benefit of portability with the inclusion of wheels, making it an excellent selection for a versatile studio/home  environment. Please note the R8 can vertically stand with the jump board pre-positioned to enable free standing without the use of a wall. Additional support feet are required for this purpose.

In general, the R8-Pro stands out as the most cost-effective light commercial Reformer available in the market. The appreciation of the traditional Pilates Reformer design, in conjunction with its user-friendly features, increased range of motion, and enhanced adaptability to accommodate various body types, renders this Reformer an exceptional and contemporary interpretation of a timeless concept.

Please note: Due to the carriage design it is not possible to add a platform extender mattress to this model. However please note that the wood standing platform does have an anti-slip surface and if you are concerned about balance then we suggest using a gondola pole to assist with balance.

OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES

The Align-Pilates F3 Folding Pilates Reformer is compatible with:

  • C* Jump Board (suitable for use with all C/H/F series reformers)
  • Frame Sitting Box
  • Foot strap

We recommend that the F3 reformer is opened and closed by two people. However, the F3 can be opened and closed by a single person with relative ease, as the lifting weight is similar to lifting a heavy suitcase.

Please note most other imported Reformers will not fold without removing the carriage first

Thank you so much Paul for such wonderful service 10/10!

KRSubmitted on: 18th July, 2022Verified purchase:F3 Folding Pilates Reformer

I just wanted to share that I absolutely love my new F3 Reformer. It is such a smooth machine and easy to use, including how I can even fold it myself. I was able to use some heavy duty very sturdy dorm bed risers to get up off the ground a bit higher too, which has made some moves on the box easier to do without my hands hitting the floor. I admit I had some reservations that the foldability would compromise the smoothness, and I am so happy to report the F3 does not disappoint. It is also soundless, which is a real bonus. Thanks for the great product!

Paul was absolutely lovely and helpful. I am vey excited about my new reformer!

Isabella BrusatiSubmitted on: 28th June, 2022Verified purchase:F3 Folding Pilates Reformer

I live in a small one bedroom flat and space is tight. I have been doing Pilates for +20 years and during lockdown I decided to start thinking about getting my own reformer – could not go to the studio. When I made the decision to take the plunge I saw that Align Pilates was coming out with a new model, the F3. I placed the order in March and it was delivered in June (war, Covid-19 Pandemic, you name it; all deliveries worldwide were slow).

The product arrived in perfect conditions. well packaged and protected, I watched the AP You Tube video to assemble it (it took me about 15 minutes, it is super easy). Great reformer for home use: the carriage is super smooth, it glides without any hitch. Additionally, it is wide enough for a person that is 5’7” and weights 60 kilos. I do not miss the fifth spring (it has 4). Easy to fold it and to open up – if you have problems with mobility or strength it could be heavy to fold and unfold. I have now ordered the jump board.

Once folded it occupies very little space. I could not use the non foldable version as I would have to remove the table in the living room or the bed in the bedroom!

There are excellent workshop on YouTube (Align Pilates channel). I hope they will post more. I would be happy also to pay for a subscription if they posted new videos every week.

The F3 is worth every penny! The only challenge is the lack of info on how to clean it and maintain it as there are no instructions.

So glad we went for delivery with setup. Paul was very personable and gave clear instructions on how to set up my F3 reformer. Great service!
