Meet the RX – a smart Pilates reformer with biometric feedback
27 Feb 2023 . BY Frances Marcellin
The RX is a commercial-grade connected Pilates reformer / Reform RX
Reform RX has developed a new digital Pilates reformer that provides users with biometric feedback on power output, calories burned and heart rate. It also tracks movement to the thousandth of a second via its smart spine, provides button-controlled resistance from 22lbs (10kg) to 143lbs (65Kg) and delivers a post workout analysis.

“When we designed the RX, our vision was to reinvent and reimagine how the world views reformer Pilates, and to elevate the existing offering for both consumer and corporate markets,” said Yvette McGaffin, CEO and co-founder of Reform RX. “As the only commercial grade, digitally-connected Pilates reformer on the market, we are able to provide tailored solutions to all commercial clients, whether that be a gym operator, boutique studio owner or wellness facility.”

One of McGaffin’s goals was to bring reformer Pilates beyond the Pilates studio and to make it more accessible to consumers, so she added Bluetooth for device connections (such as Whoop and Polar), equipped it with a 21.5” HD touchscreen and developed a library of 100+ on-demand and live workouts from expert instructors, such as Kourtney McCullough and Lucas Lombardo.

The RX retails at US$4,995 and is available to order from the website – lead time for delivery is around 15-20 weeks. Interested facility operators can try before they buy in the US at the Newport Beach studio in California, and in Europe at the Belfast showroom in Northern Ireland.

“As gym operators seek to expand and diversify their offering to tap into this growing consumer demand, we are excited to offer the solution with RX, and bring this revolutionary workout into gym and commercial environments,” added McGaffin.
