Best High-End
Best Mid-Range
Best Inexpensive

We spent 23 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top picks for this wiki. The essential cross-training apparatus for serious Pilates practitioners, a reformer provides the extra resistance you need to step up your routine for a more intense, dynamic workout than you can get with just a mat. Choose from our list of basic models for a little at-home core-strengthening exercise, or go with a heavier-duty option to set up a small studio for multiple users. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best pilates reformer on Amazon.

Born and raised in the American Deep South, Misty's career in elder care took a sharp left turn when she was swept away to the land of Robin Hood by her very own Merry Man. She's a coffee-swilling master of stitch-witchery with a magical touch in the kitchen and a neverending stream of Disney gag reels playing in her head. A certified nursing assistant by trade and a toy aficionado by choice, some intense parenting ensured she was well versed in gardening, carpentry and electrical engineering by the time she entered grade school. Her culinary artistry, tool-wielding wizardry, and skill with needle and thread were honed over nearly four decades in the kitchens, workrooms, and outdoor spaces of family, friends, and clients. Voracious reading took care of the rest.
