AeroPilates Head and Neck Support Pillow
Ahhh Much Better
I am tall and I find that I am too long for the Pilates Machine. I really didn't want to take the whole thing apart and return it. This gives me a bit more length and comfort. It truly does give me much more neck support. I figure that I am on the machine for 30 minutes and so I can make it work.
Great Pillow/Buy the Aero Pilates Too
I am one of the people who at first gave the 5 corded Aero Pilates, item F11358, a 2 star review because I thought the padded carriage was only 19 inches wide. I measured the carriage out of one end of the box. I sent the first machine back & QVC took care of the return shipping costs. In the meantime, I measured my favorite office chair which has plenty of seat room and it is 19 inches wide. So I reordered the F11358 machine. Once all assembled, I measured the padded carriage to be 20 inches wide and the machine is GREAT. The padding is thicker than a 4 cord machine I had years ago. I did not find this machine difficult to assemble. The pillow is well padded too and works great for me. I think it depends on your neck shape. Also the instructions say that it should NOT be used with exercises that require you to lift your hips higher than your head. That is your hips not your legs. I have yet to lift my hips higher than my head. I really enjoy exercising on this machine and the pillow is a bonus to making my neck comfortable while I exercise.
Great neck support and easy to put on and take off. A great addition to my reformer. Would definitely recommend!
I was not sure if I should order this item, however, I thought that since I had just ordered the Aeropilates Plus, that I should give it a try and very glad I did! It is a great neck and head support and can easily be removed when doing movements that require laying your head flat! I highly recommend giving this a try, your neck will thank you!!
+ A Wonderful Addition +
Oh, my gosh, what on earth took me so long to buy this? It makes a heavenly comfortable difference. Well worth it.
Good neck support
I always hate core exercises like sit ups because of the strain on my neck. I have the aero pilates machine and love it. This little gadget works! I also use it for my floor exercises to strengthen my core and can do a 30 minute routine with ease thanks to the support this pillow gives me at the neck. No more feeling like I'm going to pop a blood vessel!
This makes laying on the machine so much easier. I can do the Hundred with the head and neck exercises so much easier. Easy to remove when you don't have to used it. This probably should have come with the machine.
Necessary For Comfort Of Head & Neck!
This is a great addition to the Pilates machine. Makes a world of difference for comfort of head & neck!
Hope this will be restocked. I have one for my old three cord machine which I'm giving to my daughter-in-law as I upgraded to the five cord! Great support for head & neck! If it comes back in stock, I would highly recommend purchasing!
Wow, what a difference this has made in my Pilates experience. Great pillow, I have an older machine and my neck used to hurt now it doesn't anymore!
All I can say is Buy This PiLLOW !!!! My neck is so happy that I did!! Love my Pilates machine. Your neck will thank you!
Makes the difference!
I have owned an Aero Pilates for many years and used to put a towel or small pillow under my neck on top the head rest because I felt some neck strain. These worked somewhat, but would move around.
I just received this accessory and can actually feel the difference in the comfort and position of my head and neck when using this. It is a good and necessary product in my opinion, and it gives much more support than the towel or pillow I once used.
I definitely can feel a difference, too, when using the cardio rebounder and I am able to rebound without feeling the strain on my neck.
This is perfect!
I highly recommend buying this pillow to go along with your machine because it adds another level of support and another layer of comfort. I bought it to help alleviate tension and stress and pain in my neck and jaw while exercising, and it makes such a difference! Well worth the extra money!
