I'll never forget that my dad used to have this black machine that looked a lot like the Pilates machines and it worked beautifully. Even over 50+ years later.
Unfortunately, he hardly ever used it and it took up a ton of space so he sold it. How I wish I could've taken it off his hands!
The majority of the time (pretty much all the time) when a client shows me their old equipment I've either:
1. Forgotten how to use it
2. Don’t know how to use it at all
The fitness industry is rapidly changing and the trends and equipment change with it.
So when this idea popped into my head I was eager to give it a try especially because all of my clients have old equipment lying around collecting dust that they were all to eager to let me borrow for this little fun experiment (thank you!).

Well would you look at this contraption.
This one is totally new to me.
I'm so glad this client of mine kept the box to allow me to see what I could figure out from the picture instructions because I found nothing online.
I’m sure we’ve all seen this one before.
For some reason that long metal coil would keep me away. It's like a resistance band I know, but it just seems more dangerous if potentially broken.
With a quick google search I found that people still use this. I just wonder if it's worth it?
