How to Replace Reformer Rollers
Is your STOTT PILATES® reformer starting to show its age but you aren’t ready to trade it in for a new model? Well you can breathe some new life into your reformer simply by updating the rollers.
The reformer moves on rollers that wear out with use. When you start feeling like the carriage doesn’t glide smoothly or has mini-speed bumps it might be time to think about replacing the rollers. I bet you will be surprised how much this simple replacement affects the feel of your workout.
And for less than $100 it may even feel like you’re gliding on a brand-new machine.
This is pretty easy maintenance that anyone can do. All you need is a socket wrench with a ½” socket and a buddy. I took a few pictures of me changing my STOTT PILATES Professional®, SPX®, and V2Max® Reformer rollers in case you want to have a go at this yourself.
Assuming you don’t run into any unexpected challenges, you should plan for about 10-15 minutes per reformer (I had to run home to get a different socket wrench set).
