DIY Pilates Machine (sort of) Answered


I was just wondering if anyone could offer me some advice or pointers, it would be very much appreciated.

I love doing pilates. I used to so it a lot when I was a student but now I travel a lot and the machine (this sort of thing https://youtu.be/m-CtD9Km1aM )is just too bulky to set up and put away.

So I’ve been looking at alternatives, either something smaller and more portable or an alternative that would do the same thing. I found this https://youtu.be/CjFY1NjhJrg but unfortunately it isn’t sold in the UK. Shipping a heavy item, paying the customs charge and then if anything breaks I won’t be able to get it repaired.

So I am now trying to build something myself. I was thinking something along the lines of a skateboard or hoverboard with resistance bands clipped on.

I was just wondering if anyone has any thoughts, suggestions or alternatives as I’d really love to hear them.

Thank you.
