Pilates Reformer Training: Discover the Best Kept Secret at NJAC by adventuring into Pilates Reformer. Pilates is a mind and body workout that strengthens the core muscle, lengthens the spine and emphases the principles of control, centering, concentration, precision, breathing and focus. The Reformer is an apparatus which is connected by a pulley and spring system. The resistance offered by the springs can provide a more challenging strength and endurance workout than a mat Pilates class making visible results sooner. Carol Robinson, one of NJAC’s Pilates Reformer instructors, feels the power of Pilates is in the proof of her own fitness journey. It all began for Carol after the birth of her daughter who is now 16 years old. As a happy new mom, she realized, it was time to take control of her health and physical wellbeing. Slowly she began to make changes in her diet and saw the 48 excess pounds gradually melt away.  Within 10 pounds of her goal she joined the gym and fell in love with Mat Pilates. Immediately she could see and feel the amazing impact that Pilates had on transforming her body. One year later, she began teaching Mat Pilates and then continued her training to teach Pilates Reformer as she found a passion for sharing her journey of health and wellness with others. To schedule a FREE reformer demo contact Carol Robinson at crobinson@njac.com or contact Jenny Stover jstover@njac.com for additional information.
