Cadillac

“I was on the cadillac the whole time and did some really great exercises. Each instructor taught me new and different exercises and I’m a total Pilates-convert. “

Cadillac

Pilates lore has it that Joseph Pilates created the prototype Cadillac to enable bed-ridden patients to exercise. His design was simple – a hospital bed with mattress springs attached to the wall. The design has definitely evolved over the years and so have the exercises and stretches one can do on the Cadillac.

There are many elements to the machine: leg springs, arm springs, fuzzy loops to hang from, a push-through bar to stretch you out, and even a trapeze. The trapeze was the original add on accessory to the machine, which is why it is also known as a “trap” table.

You can isolate almost every muscle group on the machine – it is an excellent tool for breaking down motion into small pieces to restore correct motion patterns. Using the leg springs is one of the best ways to get runners to fully use their hamstrings.

Because the Cadillac is such a large piece of equipment it is rarely used in-group classes. So the best way to experience this machine is in a private Pilates session.
