SPX® Max Plus™ Pilates Reformer


About SPX® Max Plus™

If you’re looking for a highly functional option where space is a concern, look no further than the stylish SPX® Max Plus™.

With the inclusion of the vertical frame, you have all the components of a Cadillac including a push through bar, roll down bar and traveling and fixed ihooks for arm and leg springs. The vertical frame facilitates 80% of the Cadillac repertoire when used with a mat converter (sold separately). The reformer vertical frame and Mat converter combo is ideal for practitioners looking to maximize space. Without the mat converter, a plethora of options await. The unique traveling pulleys utilize the retractable rope system on professional reformers to achieve variable angles of resistant and create workouts with three dimensional movements.

The SPX® Max from Merrithew™ Health and Fitness is their introductory model in their line of professional Pilates reformers. At just 9” from the floor and 22” wide, this lightweight and stackable machine is the perfect option for limited studio spaces and multipurpose exercise rooms or for the home user who wants an upgrade from the SPX® at Home Reformer.

Like all Merrithew™ professional reformers, the SPX® Max comes standard with a unique retractable rope system, high precision spring package, removable shoulder rests, adjustable footbar and headrest and maple pole storage hooks. It also includes the instructional DVD, Essential Reformer.

If you’re looking for the most bang for your buck, consider the SPX® Max Plus™ Pilates Reformer bundle.  At just $300 more, it includes $900 worth of additional accessories.


Want to accommodate all heights?

Add an extension upgrade which will add six inches, (15 cm) to the length of your SPX® Max Pilates Reformer from Merrithew™.

Double your number of Gearbar positions with the High-Precision Gearbar upgrade.

Upgrade to the High-Precision Gearbar and give yourself six Gearbar positions. Added settings provide greater precision and superior ergonomics when setting initial tension, or altering the tension for exercisers. A user-friendly adjustment mechanism makes it simpler for clients and Instructors to adjust tension on the go during Reformer sessions.

Please note that any reformer upgrades must be ordered at time of purchase. Simply select the appropriate option from the pulldown menu.
