Do you need a Mat under a Pilates Reformer?
Posted By: Pamela Toy
If you have a hardwood floor, it is recommended to have either a mat or a carpet under your pilates reformer. Otherwise, you risk scratching your floor while working out or moving the reformer around. However, if your floor is carpeted, you should be fine without a mat.
Personally, my studio contains a hardwood floor, so I utilize a rug underneath to avoid any damage.
