INSTALLING THE CARRIAGE, GEAR BAR AND SPRINGS
The Reformer Frame
The Afina™ Reformer frame comes preassembled, is hand-crafted in either oak
or bamboo, and finished with lacquer for a long-lasting shine as well as protection
against sweat and water damage. Two or more people should assist with moving and
placing the reformer frame in the desired location for use.
Installing Springs
The reformer comes with either four reformer springs that are all the same
medium-level tension, or five reformer springs that have varying levels of tension.
The five springs of varying levels of tension feature different colors near the eyebolt
that denotes the tension rating of each spring.
Blue – Light tension
Yellow – Medium tension
Red – Heavy tension
The eyehooks for attaching the springs come pre-installed on both the carriage and
gear bar. To install the springs, please follow the steps below:
1. Flip the carriage over and locate the
eyehooks.
2. Unpack the springs, being careful not to
scratch the coils during the unpacking.
Fig. 1
3. Hook the non-color coded ends of each
spring to the eyebolts located on the
carriage, making sure that they rest
against the spring support bar.
Note: The springs should rest between
the small grooves found on the bottom
on the spring support bar (Fig. 1).
Installing the Carriage
We recommend that the springs be attached to the carriage prior to installing the
carriage in the frame.
Please follow the steps for placing the carriage into the frame below. These steps
should also be completed by two or more people.
13
PEAK PILATES ®
1. Each person should place hands on the
short side of the carriage to ensure
that fingers do not get caught between
the carriage and the track (Fig. 2).
2. Lift the carriage and carefully place
one foot inside the frame. Then step
over and place the other foot in the
frame before lowering the carriage
onto the track (Fig. 3).
Fig. 2
3. Place the carriage within the inside of
the frame by aligning the wheels onto
the aluminum track. The head pad and
shoulder blocks should face the head
end (opposite the foot bar, as shown in
Fig. 4).
Fig. 3
4. Roll the carriage back and forth to
be sure the wheels are properly
aligned and that it slides backward and
forward with ease.
Fig. 4
Installing the Gear Bar and Carriage Stop
The gear bar, also known as the spring bar, is where the carriage springs hook onto
and where the user can make adjustments to the position of the carriage. The gear
bar slides easily into any of the four grooves cut into the side of the rails so the
user can find the right fit. Be sure that the open ends of the hooks on the bar face
up to easily and safely lock the springs into place.
After installing the gear bar, place the color-coded ends of the springs over their
respective hooks on the gear bar. The color-coded ends should be attached the to
gear bar so that the color is visible when the reformer is in use.
The settings for the gear bar are -1, 1, 2, 3. The desired setting will be determined by
the user’s height and length, or by the user’s hip and knee flexion.

AFINA™ 4 ASSEMBLY GUIDE
For the clients that have chosen leather straps and handles, the head end of the
frame will have the pulleys preinstalled for using the leather straps. In addition, the
leather handles will have clips attached so they can easily snap on to the end of the
leather straps.
All straps, ropes and handles must be secured before use. These are the moving
parts that are frequently interchanged with other accessories and they are essential
to providing the fluid movement. Before use, be sure that the ropes and straps are
not twisted so they can easily move through the pulleys
Installing the Leather Straps
1. Snap the leather handles onto the steel rings at the end of the leather straps.
2. With the gear bar and carriage stop in the Position 1, place the handles over
the shoulder blocks on the carriage.
3. Thread the loose ends of the straps through the pulleys mounted at the head
end of the reformer frame. Loop the ends of the straps back toward the
carriage, ensuring that the strap is not twisted.
4. Unscrew the black knobs on the underside of the carriage (on each side of
the headrest) to reveal the screw post.
Note: If top mounting of the knob is desired, the screw post can be unbolted,
flipped and installed in the opposite direction.
5. Feed the loose ends of the straps through the slots at the head of the
carriage. Pull the straps to remove any slack. Align the nearest hole in the
straps with each screw posts. Slide the selected hole in each strap over each
screw post.
6. Re-screw the black knobs back onto the screw posts, tightening the knobs
against the straps until they are secure.
7. Thread the loose ends of the leather straps through the cutouts underneath
metal frame on the carriage to prevent the ends of the straps from dragging
along the ground.

PEAK PILATES ®
AFINA™ 5 ASSEMBLY GUIDE
For the clients that have chosen the reformer equipped with ropes and risers, the
Afina™ Reformer allows for easy installation of ropes and pulleys to the risers. Your
reformer frame will have holes in the head end to accommodate the installation of
the risers.
All straps, ropes and handles must be secured before use. These are the moving
parts that are frequently interchanged with other accessories and they are essential
to providing the fluid movement. Before use, be sure that the ropes and straps are
not twisted so they can easily move through the pulleys.
Installing the Risers
1. Unpack the risers and screws, being
careful not to scratch the wood with any
of your cutting tools.
2. Locate the group of four holes on the
inside of the head end of the reformer
frame.
3. Align the four holes in the risers with
the four holes on the head end of the
reformer.
Note: The risers must be placed on the
outside of the reformer frame with the
pulleys pointing inward.

neoprene handles to the ends of the
ropes.
2. With the gear bar and carriage stop in
position 1, place the handles over the
shoulders posts.
Fig. 6
3. Thread the loose ends of the ropes
through the pulleys mounted on the
risers, looping the rope ends back
toward the carriage.
4. Thread the ends of those ropes down
through the hole and the cleat (near
the headrest of the carriage) as shown
in Fig. 6.
Fig. 7
5. Thread the excess rope through the
cutouts underneath metal frame on
the carriage (preventing the end of the
ropes from dragging along the ground)
as shown in Figs. 7 and 8.

TOWER ASSEMBLY GUIDE
If you have ordered the Afina™ Reformer with the tower kit, most components for
the tower will arrive in a separate box. It contains additional items (detailed in the
“What’s Inside” section). The following pages will detail all of these components and
the steps required for installation.
Tower Bracket Assembly
The first step toward assembling the
tower is installation of the tower brackets
on the head end of the reformer frame.
Please find the instructions for installing
these mounts below:
1. Place the plastic caps into the
bottom of each tower bracket (Fig.
10).
Fig. 10
2. Align the four holes at the outside
end of the reformer frame with the
four holes on the long edge of the
tower bracket.

Removing the Push-Through Bar
The tower comes with the push-through bar already attached. Because the push
through bar swings freely, we recommend removing from the tower before
attaching the tower to the reformer frame. To remove the push-through bar from
the tower, please follow the instructions below:
1. Locate the two black handles at the
pivot end of the push-through bar.
2. Press the circular button at the top
of the handle, then pull the handle out
to release it from the tower (Fig. 14).
Note: This step requires at least two
people as shown in Fig. 15.
Fig. 14

Once the tower brackets have been
installed on the frame, you can now attach
the tower into the reformer. Two or more
people are required to complete these
steps.
1. Carefully remove the tower from the
box.
2. Grip the tower with two hands, with
one hand on the preassembled
pulleys (as shown in Fig. 16). Carry it
over to the reformer.
Fig. 16
3. Still holding onto the pulleys, lift the
tower and slide it into the tower
brackets until it sits securely against
the bottom of both brackets (Fig. 17).
Note: The preinstalled pulley mounts
on the tower must be on the outside
of the reformer frame, with the
pulleys pointing inward.

this optional wooden trim is below:
1. Take the wooden blocks and remove
the protective covering from the
double-sided tape (Fig. 22).
Fig. 22
2. Press the wooden blocks into the
tower extrusions (the lower righthand corner is shown Fig. 23).
The long wood blocks should be inserted
in the horizontal extrusions at the top of
the tower (on both sides). The short wood
pieces should be inserted in the lower
right- and left-hand corners of the tower
(only on the side that faces the reformer
frame).

MAINTAINING THE AFINA™ REFORMER
The Afina™ Reformer is constructed from the finest components and materials.
Proper maintenance requires only a small, but very important investment of your
time in a regular routine maintenance program.
If you are using the equipment in a studio or club environment, we strongly suggest
the following maintenance program:

Inspect
• Overall machine – We highly recommend that you visually inspect the machine
daily and that you thoroughly inspect all the hardware to make sure every nut,
bolt and fastener is secure every 2 months.
• Springs, Safety Chain and Clips – We strongly recommend that you inspect
all springs, safety chain and clips weekly. Severe nicks, abrasions or metal
fatigue may develop as a result of frequent use and could lead to premature
spring breakage. Not replacing springs in a timely manner increases the risk
of failure. While the breakage or deformation of a spring and the resulting
potential for serious injury is a remote possibility, periodic inspection of your
springs is critical. The springs are zinc- and nickel-plated to prevent rust
or corrosion from perspiration, condensation and humidity. Variation in the
brightness of the finish is the result of different plating batches and does not
affect the superb performance of our springs.
• Tracking System – The sealed bearings in the Carriage Wheels are
permanently lubricated and require no further lubrication. You should inspect
the Wheel Axles every 2 months.
Clean
• Framework – The wooden components on this equipment are finished with a
non-toxic, water-based lacquer. Other than an occasional wipe down using a
mild soapy solution and drying, no additional cleaning is necessary. The metal
framework should be cleaned with a mild soapy solution.
• Upholstery – We recommend wiping down your vinyl upholstery with a mild
cleaning solution such as ArmorAll® Multi-Purpose Cleaner diluted with water
in a 50/50 solution after each use.
• Tracking System – The tracks upon which your carriage rides are anodized to
inhibit the build-up of unsightly aluminum oxide residue. Clean them on an asneeded basis using a warm, mild soapy water solution and dry thoroughly with
a soft cloth.
25
PEAK PILATES ®
Replace
• Springs – We recommend that you replace all of the springs every two
years , minimum. Any spring that exhibits early signs of fatigue (for example,
separation in coils, even if slight) should be replaced immediately.
• Ropes – You may experience some minor “fraying” or “pilling” on the cotton
rope. “Fraying” or “pilling” is completely normal and to be expected. Any ropes
that tear or otherwise fail should be replaced immediately. The ropes can be
used until the “fraying” affects their function.
• Foot Loops, Handles and Safety Clips – These parts wear out over time. Please
replace them as needed.
26
PEAK PILATES ®
Lubricate
• Riser Pully Adjustment Knobs – Lubricate threads every six months (or more
frequently as needed) with white lithium grease.
