Deceptively resembling a stylish little stool, the Pilates Chair, most commonly known as the Wunda Chair or Stability Chair, is one versatile exercise machine. Don't let the word "chair" fool you - it's far from a sit-down workout. Warm-up, breathing techniques, insights on sequencing, rhythmic flow, transitions and more.
While many of these Pilates exercises are performed seated on top and pressing down on the step/pedal with your feet, others entail lying on the floor, standing straight up, lunging forward or doing variations on the push-up. Learn more than 75 exercises that can be performed on the Chair.
Once again, adjustable spring resistance is the key to challenge with this specialized piece of fitness equipment. While pressing down on the step with one's arms or legs, much of the stabilizing work is left up to the torso - and it is harder than it looks. This apparatus activates the lower back, buttocks, shoulder, transverse abdominals and pelvic region and heightens neuromuscular coordination. From a rehabilitation perspective, the Pilates Wunda Chair or Stability Chair is particularly effective for stretching and rebalancing muscles that have been strained or injured.
