Who are Align-Pilates? Founded in 2010, our objective is to bring studio quality Pilates equipment to European & World markets so the studio market can flourish, as it has in North America. Setting up a successful Pilates Studio has always been an exciting prospect, though outside North America the high cost of Pilates equipment has been a significant barrier to the proliferation of Pilates Studios – it’s our mission to change that!
By combining the manufacturing experience of sister company, The Mad Group (whose Pilates-Mad brand has been the UK’s leading mat work equipment brand since 2001), with the extensive Pilates knowledge of its customers, Align-Pilates has created Europe’s own Pilates equipment company. Align-Pilates is pleased to present its latest evolution of Pilates equipment, which blends tried and tested reliability with rapid, customer-led, design refinement.
Align-Pilates’ mission is to bring the extensive benefits of Pilates practice on apparatus to the widest possible audience. Joseph Pilates’ method, originally known as “Contrology” was initially all performed on what Joe called “apparatus”, only later did Pilates matwork appear as a means of making Pilates more accessible. Though the practice of Pilates matwork is excellent in its own right, there is simply no substitute for doing Pilates as it was originally intended – on apparatus!
Outside of North America, where Pilates Studios first flourished, the high cost of Pilates apparatus has limited the proliferation of Pilates Studios and has led to higher class costs, which in turn has reduced the accessibility and availability of Pilates reformer and other Pilates apparatus classes – our aim is to change that!
For Pilates professionals, Studio and Health Clubs Align-Pilates offers commercial grade (EN ISO 20957-1 Class S), innovative Pilates apparatus that offers a fantastic user experience. So what is the Align-Pilates difference? Put simply it is affordability and an unmatched performance/price ratio! We believe we achieve this without sacrificing quality or, reliability, whilst our machines offer some of the most flexible and adaptable designs on the market. Don’t just take our word for it, come and try the Align-Pilates difference for yourself – the vast majority of those that do, do not look back!
Align-Pilates offers the full range of Studio Pilates apparatus, including four Studio reformer models aluminium and maple wood and in both four and eight wheel designs. These are complimented with both full and half Cadillacs, wall units, combo chairs, ladder barrels, spine correctors, arcs, barrels, sitting boxes and rotational disks all at the most competitive prices in Europe. For those offering Pilates Matwork we offer a comprehensive range of high quality Pilates mats and mat work accessories for both Studio and home use.
For the home user or, trainee teacher needing to put in extra hours of home practice, Align-Pilates offers a core range of Home Pilates Reformers. These home use machines use many of the key components, from our Studio reformers, such as the music wire springs, to offer a proper reformer experience. Home Pilates reformers are also designed for convenience in storage, coming in either folding or stand up designs.
When it comes to service, we stand alone amongst the Pilates equipment brands in the UK.
