The AVALON System
Designed by BASI founder Rael Isacowitz, the AVALON System is a contemporary interpretation of Joseph Pilates’ classic equipment, with significant physiological, biomechanical and ergonomic enhancements. The evolutionary AVALON retains all the functionality of the original pieces, with additional dimensions and versatility.
Specifically, the AVALON’s unique and highly-adjustable resistance mechanism multiplies the available resistance options and provides highly-accurate angles of resistance, thus promoting greater and more precise strength gains. Likewise, the new designs, such as the wider and rounder parabolic curve on the Step Barrel, are far more comfortable for the user and prevent undue stress on the body.
"The positions, support and stability provided by the AVALON chair are wonderful for those who have limitations. It is now possible for patients to do exercises that were previously unavailable to them on other Pilates equipment. A whole new repertoire has opened up for these patients and they love it!" Samantha Wood,Physical Therapist, The Cypress Center
