The Pilates chair, also known as a Wunda Chair, is a wonderful piece of equipment. It is thought that Joseph Pilates invented this chair as his second main piece of Pilates apparatus after having first designed the Cadillac (or Trapeze table) and the third being the Reformer.

The Pilates Chair is designed to challenge and help to develop symmetry and strength in the user as well as being compact enough to be a home gym. It was one of the first pieces of fitness apparatus to be used and stored at home. The Pilates Chair can be very deceptive and thought of as an ‘easy’ workout, but we promise you this piece of equipment can offer an intense workout and it all comes down to the spring resistance settings.

Ideal for both commercial and home studios, this piece of apparatus is a great addition and can also be used for rehabilitation therapy. Available as a pre-built or flat pack option.
