The Fuse Ladder appeals to students and teachers who want a resistance or bodyweight-training, functional fitness workout that’s tough, unique, and ever-changing.
The Fuse Ladder is less expensive than reformers or weight machines and takes up much less space. Further, the same space that hosts Ladder classes can be used for mat-based classes, doubling your Studio’s offering.
The Fuse Ladder is a powerhouse of a workout with major curb appeal (everyone from barre aficionados to HIIT instructors are swooning over this tough workout!). Plus, it’s unbelievably fun, capturing moves you haven’t done since you were a kid on the playground. With a focus on standing work (and climbing and hanging), it’s the perfect antidote to the sedentary lifestyle most of us live.

The Fuse Ladder offers a fun and challenging workout combining spring resistance exercises, like a Pilates Half Cadillac but with climbing, hanging, agility, and balancing challenges to take you to a new level. Standing exercises include squat variations, lunges, and balance challenges, both using the springs and using just the ladder or backboard. Floor work incorporates springs and the ladder rungs for even more challenge. Two high bars offer possibilities for hanging exercises, pull-ups and additional upper body strengthening and lengthening of the spine. The upper eyelets can also be used in conjunction with Suspension Trainers. To get a flavour for the Fuse Ladder and explore the programming options visit – fuseladder.com

• How much Pilates experience do I need to have before I can use a Fuse Ladder ?
None! Your purchase includes a video course that will explain exactly how to use your ladder and provide an overview of the basic exercises.
• Is the Fuse Ladder safe for people with shoulder/arm/upper back injuries ?
Yes. While the ladder is great for working your arms, back, and shoulders, ladder workouts incorporate a range of moves to deliver a full-body workout, so there are plenty of exercise options for those who feel they should avoid certain areas or movements. The Fuse Ladder can be a safe and effective way to create or maintain a workout regimen while you manage injuries and other short term or chronic issues that limit only certain aspects of your capabilities. The ladder is also infinitely adjustable, so there are several options available to challenge a full range of capabilities with each exercise, such as reducing spring resistance or eliminating springs entirely from arm work to make it accessible for those with arm injuries or weakness.

$2000 each (Inc Gst) + shipping & handling.
