The Reformer Room
21 Essex Way, Suite 209
(Near Essex Cinemas)
Recent reopening announcements by Governor Scott are suggesting that The Reformer Room could open in early June. We are incredibly excited about this opportunity and are working on several fronts to prepare for that anticipated day. The reformers have already been re-positioned to allow for generous social distancing. We will be developing a check-in protocol following State of Vermont recommendations. In short, we expect these to generally be common sense measures. If you have a fever or are feeling unwell, please exercise caution and remain home. Final details on the check-in protocol will be established once the State publishes the guidelines.
Next, as the loops on the reformers are touch points, and difficult to clean, each client will be required to have a personal set. While we appreciate this is an additional expense, we're making every effort to keep you safe and to comply with the mandates. The Reformer Room will have loops for sale on our Mindbody Site. Please pre-order your loops, under Products/Reformer Loops, so we know how many sets to have made, and can ensure everyone who needs a set gets a set. You can also purchase direct from Balanced Body. If you purchase straps from Balanced Body, please ensure they have D-Ring fasteners for consistency with our reformer set-up.
What is a Reformer, you may ask?
The reformer is a piece of equipment that was invented by Pilates founder, Joseph Pilates. It is a bed-like frame, with a carriage on it that moves back and forth, attatched by a set of springs. There are straps attached to one end, used for arms and legs, pushing and pulling.
