Using A Trapeze Table for Pilates – What It Is And How It Works…

If you’re interested in Pilates or Pilates equipment, you may have already heard of the ‘Trapeze table’. Although it can sound intimidating – conjuring up images of a circus trapeze – you’ll be reassured to know that it’s not anywhere near as scary as it sounds.

For anyone looking to take their Pilates routine to the next level, a Trapeze Table could be just the thing.


What exactly is a Pilates Trapeze Table?

A Pilates Trapeze Table is a piece of equipment designed to offer increased support, allowing the user to work on more difficult and strenuous Pilates movements and routines.

Also known as the Cadillac Table, a Trapeze table is just that – a table. It is supported by four strong posts and is designed to support the weight of the user.

Above the ‘table’ area, you’ll find additional equipment including stirrups, a bracing device and the trapeze itself, all of which are designed to help you further develop your Pilates skill set.


What are the benefits of using it?

Originally, the Trapeze table was created to help bedridden or wounded patients regain control and strengthen their muscles after long periods of hospitalisation.

But since then, it has become more and more associated with overall fitness.

 There are a number of benefits to using a Trapeze table for Pilates, including but not limited to:

  • The fact it can help you achieve movements that would not otherwise be possible, giving your body even more of a workout.
  • It can help you become more flexible, improving your Pilates abilities in the process.
  • It’s a great option for elderly exercisers or those with mobility weaknesses, as it provides more support than Mat Pilates.
  • It can work out multiple parts of your body with multiple purposes, including overall strength improvement, flexibility, core strength, stability and more.
  • And, as with all Pilates’ exercises, it can significantly improve the balance of your body, thereby having a positive effect on the way you carry yourself, the way you walk and even how well you sleep.
