“The Archive Reformer feels more firm and solid bringing a stronger feel to the practice.The springs feels with increased elasticity, lighter and smother, perfect fit for my body type (small frame). I like the angles of the handles, it accommodate the hands in a better placement. You do not hear noise with wheels, it feels smother overall. In general it feels more stable.”

Thank you GRATZ for this masterpiece of equipment. The Archive Reformer Apparatus is a wonderful supportive tool, it brings the best of the Pilates method. Grateful to host it.

In the Stomach Massage, I feel that my chest is more lifted, shoulders more open and I have a deeper decompression of my spine on the Archive because the lower shoulder blocks give me more room to open up and create space.
I find a similar result in Balance Control, my chest is more open and my overall alignment looks more efficient on the Archive. My hips seem a little high (to me) on the Universal and I wonder if that is because of the higher shoulder blocks/footbar angle. I may not have as much room to open up.
So far the Archive Tour (U.S.) has stopped at @capitalpilates and @excelpilatesnova. Stay tuned for videos and more from this stop!

“I love the firmer mat! I felt like my workout was much deeper because I was working harder and not just gliding.” - Clasique client
