The Avalon Step Barrel is a gigantic step forward in the evolution of Pilates apparatus. Not since its creation by Joseph Pilates have such profound changes been made, at once maintaining all the attributes of the original piece but adding new dimensions in form and function. The entire classic repertoire can be performed, with improved alignment, plus an entire new realm of repertoire with unlimited potential. The Avalon Step Barrel arrives with a fully integrated and adjustable handle and spring system, which is interchangeable with the system on the Avalon Arm Chair. This is a MUST for any serious professional.
