Reformer Pilates Toowoomba.

Strengthening Your Foundations
To Optimise Your Health.

Every movement you perform, whether it’s opening a door or putting on shoes, requires core control, strength and stability. When the demands on our body exceed our core’s capability, the movements become difficult, and we are vulnerable to injury and pain.

Reformer Pilates focuses on improving these foundations, so you can move, perform and live your life without pain and limitations. It uses gentle, controlled movements to help you achieve your goals, whether that’s to recover from surgery or injury quickly, become stronger and more flexible, or improve your coordination, balance and walking. 

Whatever age, strength and movement you’re able to do when you start, reformer pilates is perfect – there are no minimum requirements. We work with the level that you’re at to gently and effectively improve your strength, control and stability. What we don’t do is push you beyond what you can safely handle or put you in strenuous, dangerous situations. Reformer Pilates is a fun and enjoyable activity – and we help keep it that way!
  • While reformer pilates is performed regularly by many to help maintain their health, strength and well-being; here at Optimise Health! we also use it during injury rehabilitation to help manage your injury and recover stronger so you can get back to doing what you love!
  • Pilates is also a great form of injury prevention, having strong foundations reduces risk of injury or re-injury.
  • The one-on-one or Group Pilates sessions will be programmed by your instructor for your individual needs, your program will aim to target your deficits and work on movement-based goals.

  • Our aim is to create balanced and harmonious movement patterns for everyone.

Frequently Asked Questions.

A reformer machine is a piece of equipment that looks like a bed with springs and straps. Don’t let it intimidate you – in reality it provides a safe yet challenging way to strengthen and tone the core and your peripheral muscles.

The variety of exercises alone is far superior in reformer pilates. Reformer pilates works on core stabilisation, just like mat pilates, except it uses your legs and arms more effectively, and is therefore more appealing in helping your rehabilitation and sport-specific training.

Reformer pilates promotes endurance, joint stability, muscle strength and tone, balance and proprioception. Patients who may not be able to perform a weight-bearing (standing) movement can lay down on the reformer and use the springs as resistance to achieve strength and mobility gains for the same muscle groups. 

You can perform reformer pilates daily because it’s a controlled exercise regime and the exercise variety is endless. 2-3 times per week is ideal. You will still get benefit even from one session per week. The amount of sessions you should do really depends on what you want to achieve and how quickly you’d like to do so.
Absolutely! Reformer is for everyone. Elite athletes, patients rehabilitating from surgery and just someone wanting to improve their posture for long term health benefits can all do reformer. The reformer allows great diversity depending on what exercises are prescribed for the individual to meet their goals.
Well-fitting activewear such as tights and non-loose clothing are ideal.
Of course! Everyone starts somewhere and Pilates isn’t about flexibility, it’s about core strength – flexibility is a bonus you gain along the way. As you continue to consistently take classes and get used to the movements, you should notice your flexibility gradually improve.
Yes you can! In fact, many women take pregnancy pilates classes to work their core and pelvic floor when they’re pregnant and trying to conceive. As each class is led by your practitioner, we’ll make sure that you don’t perform any moves that are too tough for the stage of pregnancy that you’re at.
