What is Cadillac
The Cadillac is a specialized piece of Pilates equipment that enables users to tone almost every muscle group in their bodies. It involves working various muscle groups with challenging poses and light resistance.
The Name Cadillac
Named for the American automobile brand that represented “the best of everything” during the 1950s and 60s, the Cadillac is the largest of the Pilates apparatuses.
How Cadillac is Different than the Standard Reformer
The primary difference between the conventional reformer and the Cadillac Reformer is the addition of horizontal and vertical bars above the table. These bars transform Pilates into a three-dimensional exercise routine you perform up in the air
What is Cadillac Ideal For

The Cadillac allows people to attempt a huge variety of movements, with different levels of resistance thanks to the springs. This helps to build strength in the body, develop lean muscles and increase flexibility.
A person can also enjoy improved blood flow and circulation as a result of exercise. For more advanced practitioners, they can use the Trapeze element of the Cadillac to practice inversions. These can also improve cardiovascular health.
