Testimonial
" Every Studio we’ve opened since 2007, we’ve equipped with Balanced Body Reformers - including our new Kings Cross flagship studio. There are good reasons why they remain our brand of choice. One, the relationship we have with Ken, and the Balanced Body team. And two, the equipment you use says a lot about you as a brand. They’re not cheap but you absolutely get what you pay for. Their reformers are rock solid, easy to adjust and practically indestructible - despite some of our clients’ best efforts!"
– Justin Rogers, Creative Director, Ten Health & Fitness
Balanced Body equipment was essential in providing LifeTime customers with premium Pilates experiences. They are exceptional in terms of quality, timeliness, and customer service. Our account manager provided on-time consultation, equipment, and parts delivery for our 200+ locations. Balanced Body even customized a reformer to meet the needs of our discerning Pilates instructors! I highly recommend Balanced Body as the best Pilates partner.
