The ladder barrel is inexpensive, extremely lightweight, easy to store, and will blend seamlessly into your living space, without the size and complexity of a Pilates reformer or Cadillac. This is why it remains a prominent feature in the collections of internationally respected Pilates equipment brands- with BASI Systems and Elina Pilates having their own ladder barrel collections.

Pilates Barrels FAQs
The best ladder barrel for you will be entirely unique decision- guided by your own individualistic wants and needs when it comes to fitness and Pilates.
However, a good place to start when choosing a Pilates Barrel is to determine what kind you want- once you have decided this, finding the ‘best one for you is significantly easier as barrels across brands are very consistent.
If you want a barrel as a full-fledged piece of equipment, however, we would recommend you go for a traditional Barrel- as other types tend to be accessories designed to be used alongside other machines.
Barrels used for Pilates are short and wide, meaning they store extremely well and take up a small amount of space. They are also immensely lightweight, designed so anyone no matter their strength can carry them.
The average dimensions for a barrel are 34″ tall x 20″ wide, meaning it will fit in the vast majority of exercise spaces.
Measure the dimensions of where you intend to keep it in and compare it to the specific model you wish to buy to be sure.
While a barrel admittedly has less functionality, features, and uses than other Pilates machines, however, it does have major benefits as an exercise equipment investment.
For newcomers to Pilates, it may be less intimidating than moving from mat work to a reformer, and a reformer may not fit your budget and space anyway. A barrel is significantly cheaper, highly acessible, lightweight, and easy to store.
Furthermore, if your primary reason for getting into Pilates is to rehabilitate your body as you struggle with disability, chronic illness, or back pain, a barrel that supports more guided, comfortable, stationary exercise may better suit your needs than a reformer.
On average, a barrel goes for mid $300, however, it can be more or less depending on its size, make, materials used in its construction, and parent brand.
