The Cadillac (also known as the Trapeze Table) is one of the most effective and versatile pieces of exercise equipment ever to be engineered.
Originally devised by Joseph Pilates to rehabilitate bedridden patients, the apparatus has evolved a bit since the makeshift bed spring days, but its inspiration is apparent and it continues to be a bridge between exercise and physical therapy.
Let Jennifer guide you through safe, proper usage and effective technique as she teaches exercises that range from gentle spring-assisted sit ups to advanced acrobatics. The Cadillac repertoire challenges the core abdominal muscles, develops spinal flexibility, works the shoulder girdle, strengthens the back and stretches the total body.
The Cadillac is also incredibly beneficial and informative for those who suffer from scoliosis or a marked imbalance in arm, leg or torso strength. The exercises featured help you to find new balance, awareness, strength and flexibility in your body.
