Heather Jeffcoat on Livestrong.com

Livestrong.com is a quite popular website that (in their own words) "provides the blueprint to simple healthy living". It was founded by world champion cyclist Lance Armstrong, and it covers a wide variety of topics that help people make better choices about their health and wellness.

While compiling information for the article linked below they reached out Heather Jeffcoat for her opinion on several topics, including the best options for Pilates reformers. To quote Heather:

Picking out a Pilates reformer is like shopping for a car; the best machine for you depends on your budget, how often you're planning to drive/use it and which bells and whistles are important to you.

Typically, reformers with fewer features (straps, springs, pads, loops and attachments) will cost less than higher-tech options. Decked-out machines can cost up to 10 or 15 times as much as simpler options.

"The more accessories and attachments a machine has, the more options you'll have for improving core, arm and leg strength," says Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, a physical therapist who specializes in using Pilates with her patients at Fusion Wellness & Physical Therapy. "A full-service machine will give access to over 1,000 exercises so you can create a workout you'll never get bored of."

The full article can be found here.

      While pregnant with my twins, Heather took care with keeping me on my feet and pain free. She saved my back, my sanity and the holidays! I would recommend her to every “mom” looking to stay on her feet during pregnancy and post-partum. -- T.C.

      I wish i could give this place 10 stars!! 
I have been suffering from vaginismus for 5 years and never found the cure to it. I had seen an ob/gyn and he diagnosed me with vaginismus and told me i needed a surgery to cure my condition,  which i refused to do. He also referred me to a PT that he works with, i had given them multiple calls and they never responded back to me, so i started searching yelp for another PT.
