Is there a clear choice which of the above makes the right machine? I'm
thinking Elliptical.
Hi Joe, have you tried Pilates Reformer or Supreme Pilates Pro machines? These are machines that you can use to perform pilates exercises. This means exercises that you do to strengthen your co lower body part which is your torso that covers your stomach, back and hip muscles. I suggest you make a research about Pilates Exercise and find out if this will help you.
