As experienced practitioners know, Pilates equipment uses the resistance of springs to impose effort and to work the muscles. Along with the Wunda Chair and the Reformer, one of the most important and useful machines used in Pilates is the Cadillac, or “Trapeze Table.” The Cadillac consists of a padded platform with a cage-like frame above it, to which various bars or straps are attached by springs.
On this disc, Pilates master Jillian Hessel shows you how to get the most out of your workouts using the Cadillac. The disc is accompanied by a handbook that lists each exercise in sequence with the video, describing the equipment set-up, body position, recommended repetitions, modifications, special cautions, and benefits for each exercise.
Now on DVD for the first time! Disc includes navigation menu to help you quickly find the exercises you’re looking for.
The Cadillac apparatus which Jillian owns and on which she demonstrates on this video was originally built by JOSEPH PILATES himself and then passed down to Jillian by her mentor, Carola Trier.
