Safety & Usage

GETTING ON THE REFORMER SUPiNE POSitiON (LyiNg ON bAck)

StANdiNg OR kNEELiNg POSitiONS

The carriage is a moving platform. Special attention must always be paid to maintaining balance and stability. especially when performing kneeling or standing exercises.

FOR SPX MAX REFORMERS:

FOR ALL OthER StOtt PiLAtES REFORMERS:

ALL MOdELS OF REFORMERS:

KEEP HANDS & FEET SECURE

Whenever placing hands or feet on the footbar. shoulder rests or headrest. ensure they will not slip during exercise. Gripper mats may be used.

SITTING OR LYING ON A BOx

Always place reformer box in a stable position on the Reformer and sit directly in the middle to avoid tipping. When using footstrap. ensure it is underneath the wooden standing platform and securely clipped together.

CARRIAGE STOPPER

The carriage stopper position determines how close the carriage slides in toward the wooden standing platform and dictates the body’s range of motion.

The hole closest to the wooden standing platform is referred to as position #1; the next is position #2. etc.

Adjusting the Carriage Stopper

The carriage stopper position should be chosen to give the optimal range of motion based on the exercise and the individual performing it. It will also affect the initial tension on the springs in relation to the gearbar.

NOTE: The carriage stopper must be inserted in one of the six positions AT ALL TIMES. USING THE REFORMER WITHOUT THE CARRIAGE STOPPER MAY CAUSE DAMAGE TO THE GEARBAR BLOCK AND ROLLERS.

#6 #5 #4 #3 #2 #1

RETRACTABLE ROPE SySTEM Prior to use. confirm that the retractable rope system is in good order and rope is secured through self-locking cleats and rope retaining hook. (See Assembly Instructions on page 10 and 11.)

GEARBAR The gearbar position determines the amount of initial tension on the springs. The slot closest to the wooden standing platform is referred to as position #1. the next is position #2. the last is position #3.

Adjusting the Gearbar

Position gearbar relative to the carriage stopper to create initial tension on the springs. i.e. the gearbar should not be in position #3 if the carriage stopper is in position #1 or #2 as there will not be any initial spring tension.

Reformer Owner’s Manual

FOOTBAR The footbar can be set at four different heights to facilitate various reformer exercises and to accommodate physical differences and abilities. The cradle closest to the gearbar is position #1. the cradle farthest away is position #4.

Adjusting the footbar

SPX Max & SPX Max Rehab

#4 #3 #2 #1 #4 #3 #2

SPX Max

Safety & Usage CONT’D

SPRINGS The number of springs attached to the gearbar determines the total amount of resistance. Reformers are equipped with either one 50% and four 100%-tension springs OR one 25%. one 50%. and three 100%-tension springs. (See page 20 for more details.)

Adjusting springs

HEADREST The headrest adjusts to three positions: flat. half-raised or fully raised. It should be adjusted on an individual basis to ensure neck and shoulders are comfortable and tension-free when lying supine.

In exercises where the hips are lifted higher than the shoulders. the headrest should be flat – even when beginning from a supine position. In some exercises it is raised to provide a brace for the feet.

Adjusting the headrest

SHOULDER RESTS Shoulder rests are removable to allow storage of the reformer and to facilitate the use of a mat converter.

Attaching the shoulder rests

PULLEyBARS SPx MAx REFORMER ONLY: Pulleybars detach for storage without disengaging ropes. To remove. loosen star knobs and remove pulleybars from receptacles.

When replacing pulleybars. ensure they are firmly within the receptacles. Ensure eyehooks on top of pulleybars are parallel to aluminum rails. Tighten star knobs securely.

Adjustment Block

STORING SHOULDER REST

SPx MAx REFORMERS ONLY: When stacking. shoulder rests slide conveniently into brackets affixed to the underside of the rail.

STORING PULLEyBARS

SPx MAx REFORMERS ONLY: When stacking. pulleybars can be removed without disengaging ropes and stored in receptacles under reformer.

MOVING REFORMERS The front end of all reformers feature easy-roll wheels which make repositioning simple.

NOTE SPX Max Reformers also include easy-roll wheels on the back.

Preparing to reposition

STACKING REFORMERS STOTT PILATES offers a stackable reformer model. Up to five SPX Max Reformers can be stacked on the optional rolling base or a maximum of six on a level floor without the rolling base.

CAUTION: Do not stack Reformers higher than your height comfortably allows lifting them.

Safety & Usage CONT’D

PUSH-THRU BAR

SAFETY CHAIN

The safety chain must be attached when using the push-thru bar with springs from below. Attach safety chain first. from middle eyehook of vertical frame to either upper eyehook of push-thru bar. Ensure spring clips are completely closed and secure.

SPRINGS FROM BELOW

When using the push-thru bar with springs from below. attach springs to eyehooks on lowest eyehooks on vertical frame using locking spring clips. Then attach one or two springs to eyehooks on lower side of bar. ensuring spring clips are completely closed and secure.

A trained professional must keep a hand on the bar at all times and safety chain must be used.

ADJUSTABLE PULLEy SySTEM

PLUS-STYLE ONLY: The spring-loaded track system provides adjustability for pulleys and spring hooks throughout the range of the vertical frame.

ALTERING HEIGHT OF TRAVELING PULLEYS AND TRAVELING SPRING HOOKS

CAUTION: Prior to use. confirm that the traveling pulley system is in good order and that the traveling pulley’s threaded bolts are securely fastened.

ROLL-DOWN BAR Attach roll-down springs to roll-down bar. then to the fixed eyehooks at the top of the vertical frame (see page 5). Both springs must be attached. To decrease or increase. spring tension. sub stitute light arm springs or leg springs respectively.

CAUTION: Roll-down bar can release at high velocity due to spring tension. Ensure a secure grip at ALL times. Gripper mats may be used.

SPRINGS FROM ABOVE

A trained professional must keep a hand on the push-thru bar for any exercises with the springs attached from above.

CAUTION: To prevent accidental injury. never put your face (or another body part) above the push-thru or roll-down bar while spotting an exercise.

Locking spring clips must be used to attach push-thru springs from below to the vertical frame.

Safety & Usage CONT’D

LEG SPRINGS Attach leg springs to traveling spring hooks or fixed eyehooks at desired height. Ensure spring clips are completely closed and secure. Shown with padded long spine straps attached.

LIGHT ARM SPRINGS Attach light arm springs to traveling spring hooks or fixed eyehooks at desired height. Ensure spring clips are completely closed and secure. Shown with foam-grip handles attached.

SPRING CLIPS Whenever springs are used. ensure the spring clips at both ends are closed completely. If a spring clip is only half closed and catches on the eyehook. it may come undone and detach with high force.

CAUTION: Locking spring clips must be used to attach push-thru springs from below to the vertical frame. DO NOT use non-locking spring clips.

EXTENSION STRAPS The extension straps are valuable in supporting the knees or legs in various exercises.
