and the verdict? i LOVED it. i got a Groupon and signed up for my fabulous friend Dani's reformer class. She went pretty easy on us for the first time, though I might still be feeling it tomorrow... we did squats, abs, arm exercises and a whole lotta stretching... the reformer machine uses springs and pulleys and you can increase/decrease the resistance using them.
I'm thinking 4 more classes and i'll be looking like this in no time, eh?
