White House Pilates Equipment

This quick tip is mostly for beginners, it's about "Pilates machines". The truth is that it is mostly the initiated who say "Pilates machine". Once you get into Pilates, you will find that almost nobody says "Pilates machine". Usually, we say Pilates equipment, or Pilates apparatus for the larger pieces, or we use the specific names of the different kinds of equipment. 


Pilates equipment can be grouped in two general categories. First, there is the small, portable equipment like the magic circles, fitness bands, and the exercise balls. (Just FYI, the magic circle is the only one of those popular 3 that is traditional Pilates equipment invented by Joseph Pilates.) Then, there are the larger pieces of equipment (apparatus) that include things like the Pilates reformer, Pilates chair, Pilates barrel, Pilates tower, and Pilates cadillac. This is the equipment you would expect to find at a Pilates studio. If you are in a studio and notice that the equipment names have had something added to the original equipment name. Chances are you are not attending a Pilates class. You are attending an Aerobic class with modified Pilates equipment.
