The Box & Pole accessories complement and enhance the Pilates exercise methods created by Joseph Pilates. Used in conjunction with your reformer, the Box and Pole helps in supporting and stabilizing your entire body and increasing your sense of poise and control. By adding elevation to your workouts, the durable, padded box allows you to involve more complex combinations of muscles, bringing you greater flexibility and range of motion. The extendable Pilates pole assists in standing exercises, allowing you to concentrate on single-leg exercises without loss of balance. The included workout video gives complete instructions on how to use the Box and Pole. A strap is also included.
