The trapeze table, or Cadillac as it is also known, provides lots of support for beginners and people with injuries as they get to grips with the basic Pilates movements.
At the same time, it can also help clients to achieve the most challenging movements in the Pilates repertoire. Unlike with the unstable carriage on a reformer bed, the bed area of the trapeze table is fixed. This creates a solid base of support for the person practising Pilates, which makes certain exercises less challenging. The metal frame of the Cadillac allows the most dramatic and most acrobatic movements in the Pilates repertoire. The hanging spine extension and flexion become possible.
