This short workout with Nathan is packed full of great challenges and exercises which work all of the muscles of the trunk, not just the often over-emphasised abdominals!
The session contains a lot of technical detail so is ideal for Pilates teachers who teach on the Reformer, as well as regular attendees of Reformer Pilates classes.
The Reformer used in this class is a Balanced Body Allegro 2 - for more details, visit https://www.pilates.com/store/pilates-equipment/reformers/allegro2-pilates-reformer/.

Nathan has been teaching Pilates for more than 15 years and has over 30 years’ experience in physical and mental conditioning. Much of his knowledge has been drawn from his time as an international athlete, representing Great Britain as a freestyle skier at world class level for many years. This involvement in high-level sport and performance training, as well as injury rehabilitation, sparked Nathan’s interest in Pilates – hence his decision to train with Body Control Pilates in 2000. Nathan is a member of the Body Control Pilates Education Management Team and is Programme Director for Level 4 Pilates. He writes and presents courses for Body Control Pilates, particularly with regard to the Level 4 Pilates qualification and to performance-based courses. Nathan co-wrote the best-selling ‘The Pilates Bible’ which was published in 2010.
