Product Suggestions

Description

The Align-Pilates A8-Pro Pilates Reformer launched in 2020 and has a completely new runner profile and runs on 8 PU wheels (rather than the 4 nylon wheels of the preceding A2 models). This updated platform offers a quieter ride, improved handling of cross loading forces, and reduced maintenance. The A8-Pro also features our Rapid Change (RC) spring bar for the fastest spring bar adjustment on the market together with a host of other subtle improvements, to make the A8-Pro the star in the Align-Pilates line-up!

The Rapid Change (RC) spring bar radically alters the ease and speed of adjusting your reformer, which is particularly beneficial in the group class environment where the A8-Pro excels. The spring bar can be adjusted with springs attached, with one hand in a single action saving up to 12 additional actions compared with most standard reformers.

The A8-Pro offers refined performance, extensive adjustability, a luxurious oversize carriage, and the longest travel of any standard Pilates reformer on the market. Now in its fourth generation, the A8-Pro is the result of years of development. The A8-Pro can be built with a choice of 3 interchangeable leg heights, low leg (28cm), standard (42cm), or rehab legs (64cm) making the A8-Pro a truly future proof and versatile investment. It has been designed for both studio, rehab, and private use with the innovative design offering a host of easy adjustments to provide complete flexibility in use.

The A8-Pro can be stacked (though it is heavy) and has wheels for easy movement. Like earlier Pro models in the A-Series, this reformer can accept a Half Cadillac Frame making this the most versatile reformer in its class, whilst offering unparalleled value for money. In addition, the A8-Pro Reformer shares all the accessories with the previous A2 model, meaning it sits perfectly alongside the A2 and can easily coexist in the same studio, sharing Jump Boards, Mattress Converters, Platform Extenders, and more. Max. user weight: 150kg.

Absolutely delighted with my Reformer and Cadillac. The team at Align could not have been more helpful, or patient with my enquiries and order. From the very first contact, all the way through to delivery and set up. So happy with my equipment and new home studio. Great feedback from clients as well (the dog still isn’t sure what’s going on though!). Couldn’t recommend more.

Great customer service from Align Pilates when purchasing expensive equipment. They knew their stuff and listened to what I wanted and offered suggestions too. The equipment has all been superb. It has a classy finish and is very smooth when working on it. I had an issue with one of the pieces of equipment that was very quickly resolved with an engineer coming out to fix it promptly. Highly recommend. Comparable to the other well known pilates equipment brands and at a preferable price.

Align-Pilates – brilliant customer service, excellent communication and fantastic products. The Boxgrove Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Clinic have bought 3 Align Reformers over the last 5 years, a Cadillac, Combo Chairs and Boxes. The Equipment is superb for Rehabilitation and the Physios use them all day every day helping our patients achieve their goals.

I am so happy I have chosen to use Align Pilates Equipment at my studio. Their equipment to me feels safe. The quality is incredible. It is smooth, bigger than I thought and easy to adjust. I love that it has leg options. I teach a more intense style of Pilates and the A8 reformer is perfect for my teaching
